Steph Curry is one of the best shooters in basketball history, and when all is said and done, he will most likely hold the record for most three-point shots taken.
He is without a doubt one of the best point guards of all time, and even though you don’t agree with his style of play, you can’t deny that he would go down as one of the all-time greats.
Despite this, Curry always has moments where he wishes he could do what other players can do.
Curry, for example, was recently featured on The Rex Chapman Show, where he discussed his future and coming to terms with his skill set.
Curry admitted that he was envious of LeBron James at times because he wished he could dunk and do more athletic stuff.
Curry, on the other hand, offered some advice to the young guns, stating that you should always remain true to who you are as a player.
“The most important piece of advice I can give to any young basketball player is to be happy with who you are as a basketball player,” Curry said. “I was tempted by things like, ‘I wish I could dunk!’ I wish I could just get in my car and drive down the street.’ What you can’t do still fascinates you. The bigger point is that you get caught up in and distracted by things like I’ll see LeBron and wish I could do any of the things he can do physically. At the end of the day, I am a basketball player in my own right. To be good, I need to do whatever I can. That, I suppose, is the message.”
Curry and LeBron have had their feuds over the years, but there’s no doubt they have a great deal of mutual respect.
It’s been exciting to see both players reach their prime at the same time, and they still have plenty of years on the court ahead of them, which will be a treat for fans.
On “The Rex Chapman Show,” @StephenCurry30 admitted that he used to get jealous of @KingJames or other elite athletes. But then he learned to just be himself and not focus on all of the things he can’t do.
