OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry considers that historically great teams in any era should be able to stand in their own merits at the history of history, however he isn’t likely to let anyone believe they can beat his Warriors.
After hearing about Shaquille O’Neal’s comments in which he said his LosAngeles Lakers team which won three titles in a row could”easily” beat the Warriors,” Curry defended his team’s honor.
“Oh, he’s dead wrong,” Curry told ESPN, with a confident grin, ahead to Wednesday’s game against the Toronto Raptors. “Obviously. We’d beat them. We could go back and forth daily “
O’Neal told that his Lakers that won three NBA titles between 2000 02 might not have any difficulty beating also the Warriors along with Curry.
“I presume we had easily win,” O’Neal told USA TODAY Sports. “Other people may come to feel different, they [the Warriors] may come to feel different. But we had one of the best teams of all the time in 2001 when we went 15-1 at the play offs. We would’ve gone 16-0 however A.I. went on us stepped over Ty Lue.”
The Warriors are trying to become the first team since O’Neal’s Lakers to win three NBA championships. The topic of O’Neal’s comments came up if Curry was asked what’s it like to he and his team mates to be in relation to the jordan /Scottie Pippen-headed Chicago Bulls teams which won back-to-back-to-back titles on two separate occasions throughout the’90s.
As somebody who’s been with us the game his whole life, Curry acknowledged that he finds it”hard” to compare teams from other elements of history.
“For meI think that it’s really a difficult conversation because I have always found it difficult to compare eras to each other,” Curry explained. “But in relation to experiencing three banner ads there and create parallels and comparisons to how they ruled that the team through their run to that which we’re doing today, ” I think that talks a whole lot on its own. In relation to us fulfilling the potential that we have and also accomplishing the target.
“And we’re still in the middle of it — I laugh I saw Shaq now spoke about his own three-peat championship group might have destroyed us for all reason. All those conversations are just entertaining because (1) who knows? (2) the game is so different. Teams which dominated their eras need to get left in terms of everything that means. Hopefully that’s how they’ll approach us whenever they talk about us 20, 30 years from now return “
