Last week, a clip of HBO’s “The Shop, Interrupted” was released where Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James was asked if he could play with any current player, who would it be. He answered Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry. Of course, that prompted the media to then ask Curry for his take. He jokingly brushed it off saying “I’m good right now.”
On Thursday, Curry’s teammate Draymond Green decided to push him on the issue. While on “The Draymond Green Show,” the Warriors guard was asked to go into greater detail on James’ comments.

Curry’s comments were quite practical, and certainly bold, as noted by Sports Illustrated.
“Obviously there’s like a curiosity like, ‘What would that look like?’” Curry said. “But also, there’s a realism of like—that’s why I said ‘I’m good right now.’ You can never let your mind go from what you know is your situation, what is your moment, your time and who I been rocking with from day one.”
LeBron James has had so much throughout his career when he has elite shooters around him. That’s how he won some of his championships. He is so great at driving the lane, drawing attention in the paint and kicking it out. The Warriors revolutionized the game, with their propensity of outside shooting. So, it would be a lot of fun to watch.
But Curry’s sentiments are certainly understandable. He doesn’t want to appear as though he is slighting the guys he currently plays with. That’s especially true with the playoffs about to begin for the Warriors.
