Pass The Pill:
Let me preface this entire piece with this: donât get me wrong, Stephen Curry has been amazing this postseason. Like, completely and utterly ridiculously amazing. Since we have that established, letâs get another thing straight: He is not even in LeBron Jamesâ weight-class. Curry has that in common with every other person that plays basketball professionally on the face of this earth. What I am saying shouldnât come as a surprise to anyone, and you are wondering.. âwhy does this guy feel the need to tell me that LeBron James is better than Steph Curry?â
Why you ask? Because apparently ESPN didnât get that memo when they ran this headline.
The headline, for those of you who donât click links, reads: Is Stephen Curry better than LeBron James? I must have missed the memo when Steph Curry suddenly won three MVPs, or even played a complete 82 games. Now, I understand that the graphic is actually only insinuating Curry may have be better than LeBron in the playoffs thus far, which is also untrue, but it does make slightly less asinine.
Curry has the potential, especially if he improves on the defensive end, to be one of the premier players in this league for years to come, but to put him in the same breath as a four-time MVP winner, and the greatest player on earth is just a silly gimmick that can only be to garner cheap views. I guess since I am writing about it, mission accomplished?

LeBron James has improved his game so much that he really has no weakness. His defense is outstanding, his passing and rebounding is stellar like usual, heâs improved his offensive efficiency, and heâs even become a good outside shooter. But the one area James feels he needs to improve is free throw shooting.
James is a career 74.7 percent free throw shooter. His highest percentage...
