When LeBron James not too long ago mentioned that Stephen Curry was the one lively NBA participant he would need to play with, the Golden State Warriors star replied with a easy “I am good proper now.” That, in the interim, seemed to be that. Curry and James don’t have any apparent path to enjoying with each other within the close to future, so the e-book seemed to be closed.

However Curry opened the door ever so barely in an look on The Draymond Inexperienced Present. “Clearly there is a curiosity,” Curry mentioned when Inexperienced pressed. “Like what would that appear like?” He went on to joke, “if this was 2K, that will be fairly deadly.”

Barring one thing extraordinarily unexpected, Curry and James haven’t got a path in the direction of teaming up any time quickly. Curry signed a long-term extension with Golden State final offseason. James can change into a free agent in 2023 however is eligible for an extension this offseason as properly. Even when he would not signal it, James must take a major pay lower to hitch the Warriors. He has earned the max each season since rejoining the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014. Probably the most the capped out Warriors may supply him can be the taxpayer mid-level exception.

Even when James follows his son, Bronny, to no matter workforce drafts him, the Warriors haven’t got their first-round choose in 2024, the 12 months the youthful James is on monitor to change into draft-eligible. In different phrases, with time operating out on LeBron’s profession, the 2 virtually definitely will not get the possibility to play collectively.

However they’ve confronted off within the NBA Finals 4 occasions and are maybe the 2 greatest gamers of this period of NBA historical past. It is completely pure for them to surprise what they’d be able to collectively. Sadly, it is simply not a partnership we’re ever prone to see.
