Warriors superstar Steph Curry is happy where he’s at.
LeBron James recently made the declaration that Steph would be the No. 1 player he’d like the play alongside in the NBA, outside of his son, Bronny. On Wednesday afternoon, during a live recording at Chase Center, 95.7 The Game’s “Steiny & Guru” shared the audio clip with Curry. You can hear his full 25-minute interview below:
After laughing at first, Curry discussed LeBron’s comments.
“Well he got his wish he was captain and picked me the last two All-Star Games,” Curry said. “I don’t know that suffices, but I’m good right now. I’m good right now.”
As Curry noted, they were All-Star teammates as recently as February in Cleveland. Curry has been out injured the past nine games as the Warriors have started to find momentum with three contests left in the regular season. He’s targeting a return for the first round, while LeBron and the Lakers were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs on Tuesday.
Curry appreciated the gesture, but clearly, he knows adding LeBron to the Warriors would blow up everything he’s built.
“Whenever you get the curiosity or interest of what it would be like to play with arguably – MVP-caliber dude like he is and one of the greatest of all-time – cool, it’s amazing,” Curry said. “We all can live in that fantasy world though.”
Warriors president/general manager Bob Myers didn’t want to break any tampering rules, but chuckled once he heard LeBron’s statement as well.
“I don’t wanna comment on that,” Myers said. “But who wouldn’t wanna play with Curry?”
Curry also gave an update on his sprained left foot, as he’s been shooting individually the past couple of days.
“Its feeling good,” Curry said. “It’s a slow process. It’s a weird one just because of where it is – the injury and all that. Every day’s been good. … I’m gonna show up for the playoffs and be ready to go."
