Stephen Curry is having a blast atop the ESPYS stage as he is serving as the host for the event. Curry has had some iconic mic moments already, calling out LeBron James and referring to himself as 'the daddy of the Boston Celtics'. However, Curry had to expand his jibes to other sports like hockey, baseball, and football.
When it comes to football, he decided to attack one of the winningest players in the history of the sport, and someone he was compared to by Kendrick Perkins recently, Tom Brady.
Brady was drafted in 2000 and will be going into his 23rd NFL season this year. He even announced his retirement from the sport earlier before un-retiring and returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Curry joked about Brady's inability to retire from the game and make an interesting analogy about Brady getting hit by NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Aaron Donald, instead of hanging out with his wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen.
Curry may be the basketball equivalent of Tom Brady in terms of having a skill-set that will age well with their bodies. Steph doesn't need to rely on his bounce or speed to help him generate finishes at the rim. He can shoot the ball from anywhere on the court no matter who is guarding him.
Brady spends most of his career not taking hits and being the playmaking quarterback for his team. Curry is not the greatest playmaker but can get the job done and is an electric scorer.
LeBron James is pushing Brady in terms of an NBA equivalent to someone who shows incredible longevity, but James is probably heading out of the league soon and retiring to try and own his own team. Curry is looking like he's entering a new prime, so he may just be around the game for a very long time.
