“If you allow yourself to be drawn into this, you are already putting yourself at a disadvantage.”

2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. For four consecutive years Steph Curry and LeBron James fighting for the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Opponents in the NBA Finals for 4 years, both played today in the same division (Pacific). With Golden State’s return to business (despite losing Klay Thompson) this year, the word competition started to reappear …

“We play, Warriors-Cavs, 4 years in a row. Not too far in the past, and now he is clearly in the West, even more so in the same division… In a normal year, we have to fight them 4 times. But in the end I think if you let yourself get dragged into this, you’re already putting yourself at a disadvantage, just because there are so many other teams and other top players.

What LeBron has done in the Finals or in this year’s bubble, and what he continues to do every year, is truly extraordinary and extraordinary. I like this competition. Now knowing who will be the next person to come and challenge the list of people in the top 5, top 10 in the league and that sort of thing, I’m going to let the others talk about it. When you are in the field you know how to spot a man who is not to be underestimated. I want to be a part of this discussion every year, whoever it is. »Stephen Curry

Two years after their last NBA Finals game, James had just won the title, while the Warriors’ biggest achievement in 2019-20 was getting 2nd choice in the draft.

“It will always be difficult to get rid of the 4 year battle between the Warriors and Cleveland. But we keep going, we keep going. »Stephen Curry
