To start, we’re gonna have to go back, way back to a time when times were simpler. The Lakers had just won a championship in 2009, Curry had just gotten drafted, in his rookie season, and LeBron was the league MVP. In this time period Curry and LeBron were friends. But things would dramatically change when the Warriors and the Cavs would meet in the 2015 finals and Curry was named league MVP.
So with the Warriors winning in 2015 and both the Cavs and Warriors going nowhere, this was slated to be the finals rematch. Now Curry isn’t known to be a trash talker. I mean sure his antics and celebrations got on his opponent’s nerves, but that was the Warriors in general. We’re talking about the baby-faced assassin, the nice guy. And then outta nowhere, before their second game in the 2015-16 season, Curry just says “Obviously, walking in that locker room, it’ll be good memories. Hopefully, it still smells a little bit like champagne.” Wow, I just oop. The Warriors won the 2015 Finals in 6 in the Cavs arena but to say that before playing the Cavs seems disrespectful which is exactly what the Cavs and LeBron thought. In fact, LeBron actually called out Curry for those comments. In the shootaround before their January game in 2016, LeBron asked the media why no asked him about Curry’s comments and that he had an answer for those words. He then walked away and so we’ll never know his answer because the Cavs lost by 34. There was a play in the game in which LeBron just shoved Curry to the ground. Maybe that was his answer but LeBron wasn’t visibly happy. See Curry was coming for LeBron’s throne, to potentially dethrone him as the best player in the world which probably was also annoying LeBron,
And then the Warriors and Cavs would face off in the 2016 finals. Curry said “Trash-talking is part of the game,” “You have to give it. You have to be able to take it. It’s just that you don’t want to see it ever cross the line and become personal, because the game of basketball is never that serious in regards to disrespecting people. So you have to leave it on the floor.” This was because there was a lot of trash talk happening between the Warriors and Cavs.
Curry for the most part wasn’t involved in any of the trash talk...for the most part. There was this awkward moment when Curry tried to go for a dunk after the whistle and LeBron casually blocked it. Curry doesn’t have a good record with dunking. In Game 3, LeBron roughed Curry up a bit, Curry argued with the ref, LeBron came into to taGame 6 was a different story. The game was chippy throughout, the series at 3-2 with the Cavs ahead looking to tie it up. Curry was in foul trouble and the Warriors were behind the entire game. They had just lost game 5 and you could finally feel that the Cavs had an actual chance to comeback from down 3-1, so tensions were high. The Warriors are mounting a mini-comeback, and then LeBron swats the life out of Curry’s shot, trash talks him saying take that. What makes this even more memorable is that 9 seconds after this block, LeBron draws Curry’s 6th foul on a loose ball foul and Curry lost it. He launched his mouthpiece in the stands, hit a fan, and got ejected. Safe to say, this just was getting out of hand.
In the 7th game, LeBron blocks Curry again. This time, he just stares at Curry, says a word, and both get in each other’s faces. This moment is usually forgotten because of all that would happen in this game, but it’s clear to see the dislike that they had for each other. In the last minute, LeBron gets a piece of Curry’s shot and then they start talking, completely ignoring the game and the ongoing possession. And this is what Steph said happened.
So through the years, Steph and LeBron have had their moments and surprisingly, their fair share of trash talk. Definitely some out-of-pocket trash talk, but that’s what made it interesting because it was two great players at the highest level of the game competing for the title of best player and championship, but what do you think? Where’s LeBron rank all time? What about Curry?
