LeBron James is flying high right now, even though he hasn't been able to play in the playoffs this season. The King is excelling off the court, having recently become a billionaire, according to Forbes. However, there has been some talk about one of his biggest rivals catching up to his legacy, with Stephen Curry in the NBA Finals with a chance to match James' championship tally if he can win his 4th.
While James won't be too worried about being overtaken by Curry just yet, if the Warriors do win the title, then Steph's fans will almost certainly start the conversation in NBA circles online. And while the King is off living his best life in the offseason, he is still catching strays from Curry fans in the meanwhile. The Warriors guard was golfing recently when a fan reacted to seeing him by taking something of a shot at James.
"Oh my god, it's LeBron's dad! Holy sh*t!"
Curry reacted as is only natural when caught off guard by a comment like that. He laughed but didn't engage and kept on walking. Steph and LBJ have always had the utmost respect for each other, even when they were consistently competing in the NBA Finals, so it's not like there was any malicious intent. It all seemed to be in good humor all around.
None of this will matter if Curry cannot lead the Warriors to a title though, and there is a chance that he won't be able to after the Celtics managed an impressive Game 1 comeback victory to take an early lead in the series. James has taken on this Celtics team in the past and won, and even though they are more experienced now, Golden State and Steph have all the tools to win, which will be the superstar's main focus.
