Speaking to the media after the Warriors’ 93–89 Game 7 loss on Sunday, Stephen Curry revealed what he wanted to say to LeBron James after the conclusion of the game.
Curry left the court before speaking to James, as the Cavaliers star was almost immediately surrounded by teammates and reporters when the final buzzer sounded.
Curry said if he sees James, he will tell the three-time to champion to soak in his latest accomplishment.
“[LeBron] had a lot of people around him congratulating him. But there’s no denying what he was able to accomplish this series,” Curry said. “So hats off to him. Winning a championship is no easy task, and he was able to accomplish it with his guys. So you congratulate him. If I do see him, that's basically what I’d say. Enjoy. Obviously he’s done it before, but enjoy the moment.”
James won Finals MVP for the third time for his performance against the Warriors. Curry, the NBA’s back-to-back regular season MVP, scored 17 points in Game 7.
