VIDEO: Lakers star LeBron James stops mid-interview to dap up Stephen Curry
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James and Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry may be the fiercest rivals on the court. But after the final buzzer, they have nothing but respect for one another.
James didn’t let a postgame interview get in the way of exchanging pleasantries with the Warriors superstar after their game on Sunday. As if by instinct, the Lakers leader took off his headphones, stood up, and dapped up Curry.

Between LeBron James and Stephen Curry are a total of seven title rings—three for the Warriors guard and four for the Lakers forward. They’ve built a rivalry over the years, having met in the NBA Finals four consecutive years. Fans may argue that Curry has James’ number as all of his rings were at the expense of the the King. But let’s not forget that James and the Cleveland Cavaliers came back from a 3-1 deficit against a 73-win Warriors squad.
It’s a never-ending debate among fans and critics, but between Curry and James, they have the utmost respect for one another. One can even say that they brought the best out of each other during those NBA Finals matchups. And when they hang up their jerseys for good, basketball fans will reminisce on probably one of the best rivalries in history.
