Former NBA guard/current foreign player Mike James recently unveiled a scorching version of Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry.
James, who signed a two-way deal with the Brooklyn Nets last season, said Curry’s play was “one dimensional”.
“Steph, like the way he plays and how he does, it’s a bit one-dimensional at times if that makes sense,” James said during a recent appearance on the Choice of players podcast.. “…He’s not the primary ball handler very much and for a playmaker that bothers me a bit.”
Asked about going one-on-one with some of the campers at his Curry Camp on Friday, the reigning Finals MVP took a shot at James.
“Everything is bad for them, everything bad for them… even as one-dimensional as me,” he said with a laugh. “I am small, however. I am so small.
To be fair, James acknowledged that Curry had the ability to score the dribble. He then called the Warriors point guard a “superstar” and said the “tattoo” was necessary when discussing elite NBA players.
In addition to his sharp shooting from behind the arc, Curry averaged 6.3 assists, 5.2 rebounds and nearly four two-point shots per game last season.
