“He is very worried” – Stephen A. Smith spots FEAR in LeBron James ahead of facing Stephen Curry
Stephen A. Smith warns LeBron James of Stephen Curry's threat
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith believes that LeBron James should feel a healthy level of fear when facing Stephen Curry in the upcoming NBA playoff matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers. Smith argues that this fear is justified, considering Curry’s impressive performances in the playoffs and his reputation as one of the best players in the league.
Smith also pointed out that the Warriors are one of only two teams against whom James has a losing record in the playoffs, and that Curry has historically played well against him. Smith’s comments suggest that James will need to bring his A-game if he wants to overcome the threat posed by Curry and the Warriors.
“I suspect there’s a healthy level of fear … of Steph Curry,” Smith said on First Take. “And let me tell you something else: It’s justified. It’s justified. I ain’t insulting him. Hell, if I wasn’t rooting for the Golden State Warriors, I’d be scared of Steph. Who ain’t scared of Steph?”
“Steph Curry has been a walking nightmare for LeBron James,” Smith said. “LeBron knows what’s coming. … And let me tell you something right now, he is very worried. Doesn’t mean he won’t be ready, doesn’t mean he won’t show up, doesn’t mean he won’t make sure he does his part. But is he worried? You’re damn right he’s worried.”

Despite Smith’s comments, LeBron James had high praise for Stephen Curry ahead of the Warriors-Lakers playoff matchup. James acknowledged that Curry is one of the greatest players of all time.
