NBA analysts keep talking about LeBron James and the idea of him recruiting Stephen Curry. This is a huge story, and Golden State Warriors owner Joe Jacob decided to put an end to the whole story.
Lacob responded to rumors that the Lakers superstar has been trying to recruit Curry to LA for a few months.
“Look, Steph Curry, if he really wanted to leave at the end of his contract, he’s a free agent, he’s earned the right, he can do it,” Lacob told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic. “I said that with Kevin Durant. I’m still friends with Kevin Durant and I still really like him. And I will always love him for what he did for this franchise. By the way, he took less money when he was here. He really helped us. We were able to get a couple of other players. … Players don’t usually do that and he did that. So I have great respect and admiration for that for Kevin. And I would for Steph no matter what he does, too. He’s done a lot for us, we’ve done a lot for him.
“I’m certainly not worried about the guy you mentioned recruiting him. I don’t think that’s going to happen.”
Joe Lacob doesn’t believe that LeBron James is recruiting Stephen Curry
Curry is under contract with his team for another season. He will become a free agent and many believe that he will retire as a Warriors superstar. The veteran has spent his entire career with the team. We are talking about 12 years! Yes, Curry has become the face of the Golden State. He led the team to three NBA titles. Not bad, right?
LeBron and Curry will look really well together. Add in Anthony Davis and you get the perfect team!
