LeBron James’ 19-year career has seen him take a mediocre roster to the NBA Finals, team up with players to go back-to-back and win a finals series down 1-3.
James has never been one to shy away from discussing the topic of teaming up with players, especially on his volition. After all, it was him who kicked off the big-three craze with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami.
On Uninterrupted’s « The Shop, » when asked who he would like to play with, James said:
« In today’s game, Steph Curry. Steph Curry’s the one that I want to play with in today’s game. All time, I love Scottie Pippen. Scottie was like the s**t. Obviously, MJ was crazy. Kobe would’ve been another one. »Scottie Pippen and Penny Hardaway was like my two, ’cause I seen myself in them. … I saw myself in Pippen and Penny – tall guards, point forwards, get everybody involved, defend all kinds of positions »
When asked why he chose Curry as the one he would want to play with in today’s game, James said:
« Man, I love everything about that guy. Lethal. When he get out of his car, you better guard him right from the moment he pulls up to the arena. As soon as he get out of his car, you better guard his a**. You might want to guard him when he get out of the bed. »
