LeBron James and Stephen Curry, two all-time greats, are competing for a chance to add another title to the 4 they each have, as the Golden State Warriors take on the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2023 NBA Playoffs.
James and Curry’s Warriors have met in the NBA Finals four times from 2015 through 2018, and this year is the first time they’ve played each other in the same conference. With James’ move to the Los Angeles Lakers, the winner of this second-round series might be looked back on as the best player of their generation, especially if they end up winning their 5th NBA championship.
