Steph Curry says he’s a better offensive player than LeBron James

Samuel:

I see nothing wrong with what he said. If he is, then he is. If he isn’t, nothing wrong thinking he can be. I don’t agree, but this isn’t news.

Originally posted on For The Win:

Stephen Curry emerged as one of the best guards in the league last season, making his first All-Star team and taking the Golden State Warriors to the playoffs. His 24 points per game were seventh best in the league, and Curry led the NBA with 261 3-pointers in the regular season — 38 more than any other player. In an interview on the Dan Patrick Show, Curry said that he’s a better offensive player than four-time MVP LeBron James.

Patrick: Who’s the better offensive player, you or LeBron?

Curry: A better offensive player, me or LeBron? That’s the first time I’ve ever been asked that question. Me.

OK.

Gotta be, right?

I don’t know. I’d assume you would think [that]. You’re a pure shooter. He can score, you can, too, but I think that, you know what, the correct answer is probably that LeBron is a better scorer but I…

Paul George to change uniform number so he can establish his own nickname

Paul George wears No. 24. There have been talks over the past couple seasons that he should change his number to 13 so they can call him PG-13. You know, because creativity with nicknames and numbers is the in thing right now with CP3 Chris Paul and D-12 Dwight Howard out there. And he decided that he will do just that.

So George, wanting to build his brand and establish his own nickname, will buy up all the current jerseys that bear his old number so he can make this new change.

Nicknames used to be organic. Players used to be given nicknames, not take something and create it for themselves. But in this money-hungry world, where people are all about their own image, here we go. The nickname is nice, but I will never really go for it since it was just a creation for marketing purposes. It’s not really a nickname when you give it to yourself. Giving yourself a number change so people can call you something they’ve wanted to call you is just dumb.

But money talks.

Hey Norris Cole. When are you going to change to No. 17?

Darren Rovell: Heartless monster who has no sympathy for Paul George’s injury

Darren Rovell tweeted that out about an hour after Paul George’s nasty leg injury. While important, the timing is bad. This goes to par for what Rovell is about. He doesn’t value people as people, rather they are assets to a company.

Tweet this tomorrow, maybe different reaction. Or maybe after official diagnosis or even after George gets a chance to address the public. Nope. He’s just heartless.

He did.

Ugly sweaters for all teams is the best news I’ve heard

I have been a fan of the ugly sweaters when they first released the NFL batch. Then they released the baseball versions. Then the hockey versions.

The good news now is that all teams will get their sweaters. At the time, all NFL teams were represented but only a handful for both MLB and NHL teams. In fact, the basketball versions were also limited. This news makes me happy.

I was apprehensive about getting the 49ers sweater because I didn’t really like the designs enough to get one. I had hoped that they would have them for the other teams. Now with this news, I am leaning towards the Sharks. Winter sport with a winter ugly sweater. That works out perfectly. But if the Warriors one is nice, that might be my second choice.

Doc Rivers will quit if Donald Sterling is still owner

I will never understand what Doc Rivers is going through. I don’t know what it will feel like to have an owner like Donald Sterling. I won’t try to understand.

If this does happen and Sterling is still around, I applaud Rivers for taking this stand. It may just be a way to force action, but it’s a powerful statement.

Time to critique the new changes to the NBA uniforms

I’ve critiqued a few changes in my last entry, but I think I will go for a full rundown. Uni Watch breaks them down in the above link, so I will comment on each story.

Let me first say that I hate the idea of Christmas uniforms. I think the money grab is really unnecessary. But people eat it up. I liked the old look of just a snowflake. But overhauling it is not something I dig. But since they are going to do it, at least this year’s look doesn’t offend me.
