Coming out of tiny Davidson College in 2009, Curry was never supposed to be this good. The part that’s odd for Steph why does that mean there has to be beef between us? He loves LeBron and respects LeBron, and hes like, because the outside world is pitting us together, why do you and I have to now have this disdain between us, I thought we were cool?
During his rise to the top of the league, Thompson said, Curry”leapfrogged a whole lot of people. There’s a whole lot of people who never got the adoration Steph gets they don’t like that. Players who were probably Hall of Famers [were saying], ‘Nobody ever anointed me like this.'”
Another player Thompson cites as harboring bitterness toward Curry is Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul.
Paul, Thompson said, “was supposed to be next in line to win a championship. Then, suddenly, it was Steph that’s another relationship where [Curry] was like, ‘Oh, I look up to you,’ and suddenly there is this disdain vs Steph. There’s a lot of those.”
Now here’s the really awesome part for drama-loving NBA fans: Curry and the Warriors could potentially face Westbrook’s Thunder, Paul’s Clippers and LeBron’s Cavaliers in consecutive rounds of the playoffs, which begin on Saturday.
