LeBron James had nothing but good words to say about Stephen Curry ahead of the Lakers – Warriors clash on Wednesday.

James called Curry the MVP of the NBA this season, after leading the Warriors to the play-in tournament, without Klay Thompson in the lineup.

“Just look what he’s done this year. Everybody counted him out this year, everybody is saying without Klay he can’t lead a team on his own…He’s done that and more…If Steph is not on Golden State’s team then what are we looking at?” James said, via Lakers Nation.

Curry has been the undisputed leader of Golden State and clinched the scoring title of the season, breaking multiple records.
