Stephen Curry Gets The Most Social Media Views Than Any Other NBA Player, LeBron James Behind Him By 272 Million Views

Being a top player in the NBA, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry has a huge fanbase all around the globe. Moreover, he has an incredibly likable personality which usually helps fans in connecting with the Warriors superstar.

The reason for this is quite obvious. Curry has the ability to mesmerize fans with his skills on the court. From launching long three-pointers to winning games for his team. Steph can do it all.

Steph's popularity among fans is so great that many even regard him as the face of the NBA over Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James. Although James has held that position for well over a decade, it feels like the torch has now passed to Steph.

It becomes even more evident with a recent stat about amassing social media views in the 2021-22 NBA season. Recently, Chief Content Officer of BasketballNews.com Alex Kennedy posted a stat on Twitter featuring three players who have gotten the most social media views this season.

"Which NBA players have generated the most video views across the @NBA’s socials? The gap between Stephen Curry and everyone else is pretty wild."

As visible in the graphic above, Curry has amassed 674 million views through social media. On the other hand, the closest player to him is LeBron, with 402 million views to his name. Lastly, Ja Morant is sitting on the third spot with 385 million views.

Although it is not surprising that Steph is in the top spot, the difference between him and the next closest player is quite surprising. Despite being the face of the league for so many years, James is 272 million views behind his rival Steph.

NBA analyst Stephen A. Smith made a bold claim about Curry being the face of the NBA over LeBron. Many didn't believe SAS at the time, but looking at this stat will certainly make them agree with Smith.
