LeBron James explains why he'd love to play with Stephen Curry

If LeBron James could play with anyone in the world, who would he choose?

On the newest episode of “The Shop,” he shared his answer, which inevitably made headlines.

First, James reiterated that his goal is to play alongside his son, Bronny James. Understandably, LeBron said that Bronny is “number one on my f*cking list.”

(Our James Posey recently wrote about LeBron’s ultimate goal from the perspective of a fellow NBA dad).

Once he shifted to current NBA players, James zeroed in on one person: Stephen Curry. 

“In today’s game? Steph Curry. Steph Curry is the one I want to play with for sure in today’s game…” James said. “I love everything about that guy. Lethal. When Steph gets out of his car, you better guard him from the moment he pulls up to the arena. As soon as he gets out of his car, you better guard him. You might want to guard him when he gets out of bed. Swear to god.”

Word of James’ comments got back to Curry, who responded in an interview with 95.7 The Game.

“Well, he got his wish; he’s picked me the last two All-Star games,” Curry pointed out. “I don’t know if that suffices. But I’m good right now. I'm good right now..."

Curry seemed to appreciate the shout out though.

“Whenever you get the interest or curiosity of what it would be like to play with arguably an MVP-caliber dude like he is — one of the greatest of all-time — [that’s] cool. Like, that’s amazing," Curry said. "We all can live in that fantasy world though.”

James and Curry clearly have a ton of respect for each other after facing off in the NBA Finals four times.
