“It’s just a battle every time,” Curry said. “I know there’s a lot of different narratives within each of the series we’ve had, different teams and teammates and all the above. But it’s just great basketball, great competition. Understanding who LeBron is, and who he’s been his entire career. The accolades and the championships he’s won, and the records he has. He’s an amazing basketball player, and brings the best out of you. You know you have to be your best if you’re gonna try to beat him, and I think he feels [the same] vice-versa. So you love those experiences. Somebody has gotta win, and it’s part of the nature of what we’re dealing with. But there’s so much respect and appreciation for the battles and the experiences and the back and forth, because it’s basketball at the highest level and that’s all you can ask for.”
