The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors have met in the NBA Finals the past two seasons, and LeBron James and Stephen Curry are two of the biggest names in the NBA.
James is a four-time MVP. Curry has won the past two MVP awards, and last year he was the league’s first unanimous choice. But despite the similarities and the classic Finals clashes, James doesn’t view Curry as a rival of his. “I don’t have a rivalry with Steph Curry,” James said after Saturday’s All-Star practice session. “There’s no way you can say, ‘Let’s talk about rivalries,’ and you say, ‘Bird and Magic. Carolina, Duke. Ohio State, Michigan,’ and then say ‘LeBron and Steph.’
