NBA Fans Point Out Rarely Known Facts About Their Favorite Players: "LeBron And Steph Curry Were Born In The Same Hospital. Couple Of Kids From Akron."

LeBron James and Stephen Curry are two of the most influential players of our generation. James has been in the league for a long time and has helped his fellow NBA players get more freedom than ever regarding their careers.

On the other hand, when it comes to evolving the playing style of the modern-day NBA, there is probably no one who has had more impact on it than Stephen Curry. Curry's incredible 3-point shooting ability, which has helped him achieve so many great things in his career, has been adopted by the entire league.

Compared to a decade or so ago, no one used to shoot so many 3-pointers in the NBA. But look at those numbers now; each and every team is trying to knock down as many 3-pointers as possible.

Anyway, the two NBA superstars also had one of the greatest rivalries when they faced each other in the NBA Finals for four straight seasons. So it goes without saying that James and Curry are connected to each other in one way or another. No, quite literally.
