LeBron James and Stephen Curry are considered the best players of this generation. They have been dominant in the NBA for a long time.
They have made many opponents look bad in highlight videos, like LeBron surprising everyone with a block from behind or Curry making someone fall and then hitting a three-pointer. NBA rookies were asked which of these experiences they would choose for themselves, and they gave interesting responses.
NBA rookies on LeBron James and Stephen Curry
Taylor Hendricks: “Have a LeBron chase-down block.”
Jordan Walsh: “Oh my god, Steph break your ankle.”
Brice Sensabaugh: “A chase-down block for sure, because if I don’t see it, I’m cool with that.”
Julian Phillips: “Oh they both bad. But block, you can’t get broke down.”
Dereck Lively: “A LeBron block.”
Olivier-Maxence Prosper: “LeBron chase-down block. Ankle breaker is definitely worse than getting blocked.”
Kris Murray: “LeBron chase-down block.”
Marcus Sasser: “LeBron chase-down block. He do it to everybody. It’s going to happen.”
Jalen Pickett: “LeBron chase-down block. Breaking your ankles is crazy.”
Ben Sheppard: “LeBron chase-down block.”
Hunter Tyson: “Oh man. Probably get blocked by Bron.”
Jaime Jaquez Jr.: “Steph breaking your ankle. Oh wait, hold on. No no. Chase-down block by LeBron. I mixed up the question.”
In the end, everyone preferred LeBron’s chase-down block instead of Curry’s ankle breaker. Miami Heat rookie Jaime Jaquez Jr. initially thought he would choose the ankle breaker but later realized his mistake and picked the block. So, it was a clean sweep for LeBron’s move.
The rookies also picked their all-time favorite NBA moment
Although Curry won in the previous comparison, he had a bit of bad luck as many rookies chose Kyrie Irving‘s famous shot in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals as their all-time favorite moment. So, Curry ended up being on the receiving end of that choice.
Many rookies also chose Ray Allen’s incredible three-pointer in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals as another memorable moment.
Fans are very excited about the future of these rookies. They can become legends one day.
