Steph Curry on collaboration with LeBron: ‘I’m fine now’
The combination of Stephen Curry and LeBron James is what the most objective NBA fans want to see before the two all-time greats retire.
Just met his Los Angeles Lakers out of contention after the seasonJames’ future in Southern California is still in the future.
James added more fodder to it in a recent chat on HBO’s “The Shop”, pointed out that the player he wants to be the most fit in the NBA is the aforementioned Stephen Curry.
“Steph Curry is definitely someone I want to play with today. (He’s) deadly, man. When he steps out of the car, you should protect him from the moment he pulls into the arena. As soon as he gets out of the car, you should watch out for his**. You may want to protect him when he gets out of bed. Swear to God.”
Despite the Lakers’ difficulties this season, 37-year-old James put in a stellar performance.

With that said, there are some questions about his future with the Lakers. James recently said that he wants to play with his son, Bronny, in the NBA. He is also set to become a free agent after the 2023-24 season. With a perceived rift between James and the Lakers . organizationhe can depart sooner rather than later.
So could James team up with Curry in San Francisco? Not too fast. A three-time champion, Curry answered James on Wednesday. What he has to say is quite interesting.
“Well, he got his wish. When he was captain, he picked me the last two All-Star games. I don’t know if that will be enough, but I’m fine for now,” Curry said, through 95.7 The Game.
Well, this has come. Given the new 4-year, $215.4 million extension he signed with the Golden State Warriors last summer, Curry will likely end his career in Northern California.
