“He was a once-in-a-lifetime basketball player”

LeBron James and Steph curry have had their great battles in the past and will likely have more this season. They are fierce rivals on the court, but both recognize, appreciate, and admire each other’s greatness.

LA Lakers superstar and four times MVP well aware of the opponent’s march to greatness and can’t wait Golden Empire WarriorsHis own MVP to break one of the NBA’s most anticipated records.

In a post-game interview after LA Lakers dominates the OKC Thunder, LeBron James was asked about Steph Curry’s upcoming march to another historic record. To the surprise of many, the Lakers superstar was really full of praise for his opponent.

Here’s LeBron James eulogizing Steph Curry (via Ryan Ward):

“The track record is pretty great. You can’t even jinx it, as it will happen. It may happen tomorrow… But it will happen. We are all witnesses to what Steph Curry has accomplished in his career and how he changed the game. He was a once-in-a-lifetime basketball player. ”

LeBron on Steph Curry is likely to overtake Ray Allen (which LBJ admits it’s only a matter of time): “Pretty cool track record. …He’s a once-in-a-lifetime basketball player.”

LeBron James is well aware of Steph Curry’s unstoppable quest to top Ray Allen’s all-time three-pointer record. As things stand still, Curry is just 10 three points away from breaking the mark. James was just one of thousands of people watching to see how much the defending champion could score against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The funny thing is that James’ description of Curry closely resembles how NBA analysts and writers have described the Lakers superstar over the years. There was greatness in both players who shone amid the tumult of their rivalry.

The issue is not “whether” Steph Curry will break Ray Allen’s record. It is always a question of “when.” LeBron James won’t be able to witness the historic moment when it happens, but he vowed to congratulate the MVP three times after breaking the record.

When will Steph Curry break Ray Allen’s all-time trebles?

Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors have a seven-game road trip, starting with a game against brother Seth Curry and the Philadelphia 76ers. The baby-faced assassin is averaging 5.5 three-pointers per game. Based on that number, it will be against the Indiana Pacers that he will break the record.

However, no one is betting against the best shooter in the NBA. LeBron James mentioned a few times in his post-game interview that Curry has hit 10+ times in a game over the past few years. He was certainly a witness to some of those flaming three-point barges.

Again, it’s only a matter of time. As LeBron James said, “You can’t even jinx it.”
