LeBron James leads the world of sports in heaping praise on Warriors’ Steph Curry

It seemed that everyone who saw Steph Curry’s legendary effort on Friday night was in awe of the 43-point, 10-rebound effort.

Curry carried the Warriors to the come-from-behind win over the Celtics in Game 4, squaring the NBA Finals series at two games apiece.

Respect from Curry came from NBA greats, including several tweets from longtime Warriors foe LeBron James.

James sent out several tweets praising Curry throughout the night, calling Curry’s play “insane” and replying to a tweet from Dwyane Wade with more praise.

“FACTS!!! “THEY” will try to do anything in their powers to not acknowledge how “DIFFERENT he is! It’s Rare and rare is not liked & appreciated,” James tweeted.

Wade added even more praise for Curry on Instagram, where he replied to a post with the comment, “Expanding the Mount Rushmore and making room for this bad [expletive] is the only conversation, that should be going around about Wardell Stephen Curry.”

Curry also earned praise from CJ McCollum, the Pelicans guard who Curry and the Warriors knocked out of the playoffs several times. McCollum tweeted Curry “is a bad boy.”

Others in and around the NBA reacted similarly, with Joel Embiid tweeting “AMAZING,” former NBA guard Jamal Crawford tweeting, “Steph is TRULY something else” and Nicolas Batum stating simply, “He’s really good at the game of basketball.”

Hard to argue with Batum, and even those who aren’t in the NBA recognize it, too. 49ers tight end George Kittle tweeted that, “Steph crazy” while complimenting the Warriors.

And even in the middle of the start of a rivalry weekend against the Dodgers, the Giants took notice, too. Highlights from the Warriors game were shown on the Oracle Park scoreboard throughout the night, and there was noticeable roars from fans that were clearly watching the Warriors on their phones instead of the Giants-Dodgers game in front of them.

And that even goes for the Giants broadcasters, too. On the KNBR postgame show after the Giants’ 7-2 win, Duane Kuiper didn’t initially pick any members of the orange and black as his player of the game.

He took Curry.

Player of the game for a game he wasn’t even at. That’s the type of night it was for Curry.
