Sports analyst Bill Simmons recently spent time comparing the Los Angeles superstar Lakers, Lebron James, with the Golden State superstar Warriors, Stephen Curry.
Simmons believes that James has not changed the game of basketball the way Curry has. He explained why.
“If you’re just talking about the general topic with them, the fact that Curry really changed the way basketball was played is going to matter if he can start adding some finals and maybe a couple more rings. I think LeBron is a better player than Curry, but if you’re just talking about career and when we start adding things up, Curry’s impact on basketball and being at the forefront of just changing the way it’s played, right? Simmons said. “To literally change how the sport was played and how young people play it and how he resonates with young people is the one thing LeBron doesn’t have.
“LeBron was the best player in the league for basically a decade and a half and had one of the best careers in history, but you wouldn’t say he changed the way basketball is played. On the court, he was perfecting things that were already there. Curry really changed basketball. “
