As always, there's a lot of discussion on who is the best player in the NBA. People not only debate about whether who is the best player in history, but they also argue about who is the best player currently playing. LeBron James right now is part of both discussions. But according to Lakers Legend, Shaquille O'Neal, the best player in the current NBA is not the ‘King’, but the current champion and the best 3-point shooter in history, Steph Curry.

“Hell yeah. As Kenny [Smith] would tell you, you can have a category, but the real ones are recognized by the championships that you have. Nobody plays better than Steph Curry. He’s a tough shot-taker, tough shot-maker. I like where he’s brought his career.” argued the former NBA All-star player via his podcast. Let's not forget Steph Curry had one of the best seasons of his career. Not only did he win the Championship, but he also ended up winning the finals MVP.

Last season, Steph Curry averaged 25.5 points, 6.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds in the 64 games he played during 2021-22. He was also selected to play in his eighth All-Star game. in comparison, LeBron James averaged 30.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists in the 56 games he played last season. He was also selected to play in the All-Star game. However, the Lakers missed the playoffs and so he couldn't show the victories that Curry did.

There can be many arguments made for either player. The truth is that both change the league with their own style. It is also worth mentioning that the Warriors have the roster to compete for back-to-back championships in the upcoming season. The team results help a lot in regarding a players importance. If the Warriors go on and win again, there will be no arguing who is better right now.

LeBron chance to quiet the doubters

The Lakers' first game of the season will be against the defending champion Golden State Warriors on Opening Night. This will be one tough game for LeBron James and company, but it also can be the perfect opportunity to show the whole world that he's still the best player in the world by defeating a Steph Curry.
