Steph Curry not interested in being the 'face of the NBA'

The Golden State Warriors point gaurd is a phenomenon but he is just interested in accumulating NBA rings

The Basketball Gods have conspired to give NBA fans the finals matchup everyone wanted as Steph Curry's Golden State Warriors take on the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers.

James, who once sat atop the NBA mountain on his own has been joined, and maybe even surpassed, by Curry but the Warriors' point gaurd is not interested in being considered the 'face of the NBA'. 

"It's really annoying for me," Curry said on Wednesday. "That's not what I'm playing for, to be the face of the NBA or to be this or that or to take LeBron's throne or whatever.

"You know, I'm trying to chase rings, and that's all I'm about. So that's where the conversation stops for me."

"I'm not in the business of ranking or debating who is what," Curry continued.

"At the end of the day it's about winning, and the fact that we won a championship last year and were the last team standing, obviously, is what was most important to me."

Klay Thompson gives his opinion as to why Curry might be a more relatable star than the larger-than-life Lebron James.

He says, "I think it might be easier for the common fan to relate to Steph because it's hard to be 6-8, 260 [pounds] and have a 40-inch vert and be the fastest guy on the floor.

"So, I mean, the casual fan might relate better to Steph because he doesn't have that athletic, just God-given ability. It's tough to say. It's just personal preference, honestly."
