After Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals, ABC’s TJ Holmes interviewed 2 times MVP Stephen Curry on a bevy of topics, from his relationship with LeBron James, time with ex-President Obama and what he thinks about people calling him ‘soft’.
The Warriors went into this year’s NBA Finals with a different kind of energy and an added basketball IQ, Kevin Durant to make sure they don’t get beaten by their arch rivals, Cavaliers. After repeating a 3-1 lead, they stepped up and finished the series in Game 5.
Everyone knows LeBron Jamesand Stephen Curry comparison doesn’t hold but Curry is always a thorn in LeBron James skin when the two meet and it’s pretty obvious Curry enjoys it when he beats LeBron to a dunk, steals a ball or dribble around him. Curry spoke a little on their relationship

“I know him well, all the way back from my college days. As you go through the league, the schedules are crazy and you obviously run into each other from time to time and you have the battles on the court.
“When it’s all said and done, when all of our careers is over with I’m sure there’s gonna be a lot of looking back like we had some good times playing the game we love and share with all the guys in the league”.
There is always a match-up between LeBron James and Stephen Curry when the Cavaliers and Warriors meet and it was a great revenge for Curry when they won this years NBA Championship after loosing it to Cavaliers last year.
Curry also spoke about his relationship with ex- President Barack Obama and how they two connected through sports. “I was talking to our former President Barack Obama… I was playing golf and he was talking about the challenges before he was in the office… He can just go for a walk down the street and be in his own world and just unplug from all the commotion, the attention..”

Stephen Curry’s relationship with the ex- President is the main reason many have confirmed that he would not go to the White House should President Donald Trump call in the Golden State Warriors for a victory celebration following their NBA Championship win.
Curry grew up differently being raised in a Christian way by his mother, Sonya Curry who is the wife to retired basketball player Dell Curry. Many have called him ‘soft’ but the 2 timesMVP (2015, 2016) said he doesn’t care how people perceive him because his own views about his life is what matters.
Sonya Curry talks about How He Raised Stephen Curry
” I had a different upbringing and a lot of players in the NBA have had similar upbringings than some people in the NBA so I’m not by myself in this situation but I don’t know what’s in some people’s mind, how they labelled me, how they perceive me. I know what I’m about and how I view myself and life”.
