NBA fans have been waiting for a lifetime to see LeBron James & Stephen Curry in the same team. But these two guys have been such fierce rivals over the years. They have been the face of the league for over a decade now. Their arch-rivalry started in 2015 when the Golden State Warriors met the LBJ-led Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. That was just the beginning of the epic rivalry. From 2015 to 2018, the same two teams met in the NBA Finals. Stephen Curry had the last laugh because, under his leadership, the Warriors were able to beat the Cavs three times in the Finals. However, LeBron James led the Cavs to make a historic come back from a 3-1 deficit in the 2016 NBA Finals.

If the Cavaliers had not managed to do the impossible as it seemed at that time, the Dubs could finish with the title of the greatest team of all time. Nonetheless, it is still the 1996 Chicago Bulls as they won the title after enjoying a 72-10 regular season. In 2016, the Warriors had an epic 73-9 record, but could not win the title. That’s because LeBron James inspired the Cavaliers to end the “Cleveland Curse” that year. Since then, the James-Curry rivalry evolved, and both these guys have a lot of respect for each other. Now, the two NBA superstars are getting ready to team up for the Paris Olympics.
