Warriors’ star Stephen Curry admits that he used to get jealous of LeBron James and other athletes in his early days in the league
Stephen Curry is one of the most influential players the game of basketball has ever seen. The 2x MVP has changed the game in ways that were unfathomable before his time in the league. Curry, when he hangs up his boots, would have left behind a legacy, unlike any other player.
Steph has been building on his legacy all season long. One of the frontrunners of the MVP campaign this season, Curry has been an unstoppable force in the month of April. He is averaging just under 40 points per game.
Stephen Curry admits that he used to be jealous of LeBron James
If anyone watches the NBA in the current day, it is hard to imagine Stephen Curry being jealous of someone. Steph is an all-round offensive threat.
He can pull up from anywhere on the court, and also, finish at the rim. Curry was recently on the Rex Chapman show. There he admitted that there was a time he was jealous of LeBron James and other athletes.
“The biggest piece of advice for any young kid that’s playing the game is be comfortable with who you are as a basketball player. The bigger point is like I’ll see LeBron and I wish I could do some of the stuff he can do physically and you kinda get wrapped up in and distracted by that. At the end of the day, I am my own type of basketball player. I’ve got to do what I can to be successful. So I guess that’s the message.”
On “The Rex Chapman Show,” @StephenCurry30 admitted that he used to get jealous of @KingJames or other elite athletes. But then he learned to just be himself and not focus on all of the things he can’t do.

Curry has already inspired a generation of young kids and taught them that you don’t need to be big to succeed in the NBA. This is another really nice lesson that Curry imparted. We shouldn’t focus on our shortcomings, instead, we should work on our strengths.
