“There’s a lot of comparison around the creativity and innovation Lionel Messi and I bring to our sports”: Stephen Curry
Back in 2018, Chef Curry spoke about the then-Barcelona leader’s game.
“I think it’s the creative genius to what he does and a flair, but also there is a fundamental aspect to the flair.”
‘The work that he puts in, I’m assuming, based on the talent that he has, and combining that with the talent that he has and how that kind of shows when he’s out there on the pitch.”
The Baby-Faced Assassin then went on to acknowledge the comparisons around the two in terms of what they bring to the sport, and in terms of influencing the next generation.
“So I think there’s a lot of comparison, really, around the creativity and the innovation that we bring to our respective sports and trying to, I guess, impact – I would say influence the next generation to try to push themselves as well.”
