Stephen A. Smith Says Stephen Curry Will Have More Titles Than LeBron James Next Year: "Steph Curry Will Surpass LeBron James, And He Will Have Five Chips. He Will Tie Kobe Bryant. He Will Surpass Shaquille O’Neal."

The Golden State Warriors won their fourth NBA championship in seven years against the Boston Celtics, confirming that they are back and it'll be hard for the rest of the league to dethrone them. Stephen Curry played at a great level, destroying the Celtics during the series and winning his first Finals MVP. 

The Chef is ready to keep adding silverware to his career and making his legend even bigger. They just won the title and some people already have big expectations for the Warriors next season. ESPN's Stephen A. Smith recently predicted that the Dubs would go for the back-to-back not even one day after they won the 'chip. 

During a recent edition of First Take, Smith claimed that the Warriors are championship bound next year and Stephen Curry will surpass LeBron James and Shaquille O'Neal in titles while reaching Kobe Bryant levels. 

“I got the Warriors repeating!” shouted Smith. “They are winning the NBA championship again next year! This time next year, Steph Curry will surpass LeBron James, and he will have five chips. He will tie Kobe Bryant. He will surpass Shaquille O’Neal. He’ll have more chips than Shaquille. He’ll have more chips than LeBron. He’ll have just as many as Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan. The Golden State Warriors are winning the championship again next year.”

Steph is still hungry to win. He's not slowing down, his 3-point shooting gets better every season and the Warriors have a solid project that will keep them competing for the championship every year. Curry is still young and has a lot left in the tank. 

The Warriors can still cash in on their gem, who will have more chances to win the title in the future. He just won his first Finals MVP and adding another one would be huge for him. This Warriors team looks very dangerous right now.
