Stephon Curry has shared an interesting opinion on LeBron James’ longevity and his ability to play at a high level in the NBA for a long time. The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off yet another loss in the preseason. They lost to the Golden State Warriors last night and are now 0-3 in the preseason. This will be the first opponent they play in the real season as well.
Obviously, these games don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. But it is surprising to see them struggle against teams that they are clearly better than. Last night, most of the starters at least played for a little bit. We will have to wait and see if it transfers over to the regular season or not.
With that being said, Stephon Curry, of the Golden State Warriors, had some interesting things to say about LeBron James and his ability to play in the NBA for such a long career.
Stephen Curry Shares Brutally Honest Take on LeBron James’ Longevity
“He set the standard for that,” Curry said after the game “Let’s keep it real — what is he, in his 18th year? Nine straight Finals, all the things that he’s accomplished. You have a vision of sustaining your prime for as long as you can, kind of reimagining what that looks like. So you know the work that goes into it, the intentionality, especially in the offseasons, especially how you take care of your body, your mind. Balance on court, off court.”
“For me, it’s a weird perspective just because I still remember my college days and he was just coming into his prime in the league,” Curry said. “And my sophomore year, [NCAA] tournament run he came to a game, then came to a game my junior year. This is hilarious. I still have a jersey that he signed back in ’08 in my parents’ house back in Charlotte. So it’s kind of weird to think about what’s happened in the last 13, 14 years.”
These is some interesting words on LeBron and his ability to play at such a high level. Hopefully he can continue for many more years.
