Steph Curry has won the NBA MVP award the last two seasons and his Golden State Warriors just took a 3-1 series lead over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. Curry grew up in Charlotte and has always been a big Carolina Panthers fan.
Cam Newton appeared on WFNZ-AM’s The Mac Attack and stated that LeBron is the best player in the NBA even over Steph. ESPN quotes Newton:
“A person asked me, ‘Well, is Steph Curry the best basketball player on the planet?’ I said, ‘No.’ I said, ‘Steph Curry is the best basketball player on the best team on the planet.’
“I still think LeBron is [the best player]. He’s 6-7, athletic, can do anything on the court. But LeBron is not on the best team. Going back to what I was saying, the power of team will always be better than the power of skill.”
Newton has always said he is a huge Steph fan in the past, but it seems he is more of a LeBron fan now.
