Steph Curry With The Epic Answer To How He Can Be Stopped: "What Did LeBron Say That One Time, You Don't?"

Steph Curry With The Epic Answer To How He Can Be Stopped: "What Did LeBron Say That One Time, You Don't?"

Steph Curry is one of the hardest players to guard in today's NBA, his three-point shooting and handles make him a nearly unmanageable assignment for many defenders. While Steph himself has always been humble about his abilities, he has received praise for it from other stars like LeBron. And it seems like he agrees, saying as much in a segment for GQ magazine. 

Curry participated in an exercise for GQ where he went undercover on the internet to answer some questions people have asked. Responding to a question about how he can be guarded, Steph quoted LeBron, who once said that it simply can't be done. 

"How can Stephen Curry be stopped? What did Bron say that one time? You don't? I like that line. I had to steal it from him, I like that one."

LeBron James and Steph Curry have enjoyed some heated battles over the course of their careers, meeting in the NBA finals in 4 consecutive seasons. During the Finals, James was asked how the Cavs could slow down Curry and he explained that it can't be done. 

"You slow Steph down the same way you slow me down. You can't."

Curry has proven time and again that this is true, and he did it again in the previous season, leading the NBA in scoring with 32 points per game. He has started this campaign in a similar way, averaging 26.8 points, although he has slowed down considerably in the last few weeks. 

Curry is feeling confident as well, something that bodes well for the Warriors as they aim to climb to the top and win another championship this season. If LeBron's Lakers can make the playoffs as well, the road to the Finals could lead through Golden State, which means they might have to find an answer for Curry's abilities after all.
