LeBron averaging 33 points, 12 rebounds, and 9 assists, while Curry averages 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists. While Curry falls short in all three categories, Bayless acknowledges that turnovers are high for both players due to their high usage rates.

Bayless said: “I’m disqualifying this as a one-sided rivalry. He has outplayed Steph, who hasn’t been that influential to this.”

Despite the possibility that the numbers show that LeBron is the clear winner in this rivalry, it’s important to consider the context of their interactions. LeBron is more versatile than Curry, who is known for his exceptional shooting abilities but falls short in other respects.
