Steph Curry Joke About LeBron James Goes Viral

Steph Curry is having the time of his life and even cracks jokes about LeBron James. Yes, these two have an excellent friendship, but this didn’t stop Curry from teasing his rival.

The Golden State Warriors superstar hosted the 2022 ESPYs. As you may be guessing, it’s a big event and Curry got the best of it. He is super motivated these days and can’t even hide his excitement. Let’s not forget that Curry and his Warriors teammates have just won a title. Now is the perfect time to brag around, right?

Curry picked a lime-green suit for the event. He is the host after all. His outfit has to be out of this world. In his opening monologue, the four-time NBA champion mentioned his teammates, the Boston Celtics, Tom Brady and yes, King James. I guess Curry had something to say about LeBron’s hosting in 2007. The king of basketball lost the NBA Finals that year and he wasn’t really happy. He did a decent job on the stage and now we have Curry joking about it.

“LeBron James, he hosted this award show back in 2007 after losing in the NBA Finals,” Curry said. “So yes, you guessed it, this feels better.”

Steph Curry teases LeBron James

Oh yes, he really stressed the “losing” bit. Will LeBron even respond? Curry is not his foe. They are great friends and LeBron even said he’d love to share the floor with the Warriors superstar as his teammate. This was more than enough to sparkle a debate. The Los Angeles Lakers didn’t make the playoffs this season and fans started discussing his potential deal with the Warriors. It was just an unrealistic scenario. LeBron respects Curry and everything he has accomplished so far.

When it comes to LeBron’s hosting in 2007, he was the second athlete to host the event. Jimmy Kimmel joined him on the stage. What’s the highlight of the “show”? LeBron told the world to buy his shoes. He was only 22 back then and he was already planning his business game. Great dreams for an even greater future.
