LeBron James is considered by many as the top player in the NBA today. However, it’s Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors who are lording It over the league this season. Could NBA rumors of the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar being envious of the Warriors’ success be true?
James was asked about the Warriors’ run to matching the regular season record mark by the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan and the Cavs star appeared to appreciate Golden State’s impressive run but sounded a bit defensive.
“Records are meant to be broken. That doesn’t mean your record that’s broken [and] anyone is looking less of you. You have rushing records that are broken. You have home run records that are broken. You have 100-yard dash [times] that are broken. You have all types of records that are broken, but no one ever looks down upon the record that is broken,” James said via ESPN.
However, James did say that he is impressed with what Curry and the Warriors have done this season. The Warriors got an impressive win versus the San Antonio Spurs on the road on Sunday and matched Jordan and the Bulls’ 72- 10 record.
“You actually praise it even more. You look back at it like, ‘Wow, they really did that?’ So having Golden State in a position where if they win three in a row they can break that record, I think it’s pretty cool,” James added in the same article to put a stop on NBA rumors that he’s envious of the Warriors’ success.
James and the Cavaliers are still the favorites to win the Eastern Conference in the upcoming NBA Playoffs. A James vs. Curry and Cavs vs. Warriors rematch in the NBA Finals is expected by many experts. With NBA rumors of LeBron being envious of the Warriors’ success, it’s a championship match-up that will be hyped an highly anticipated this year.
