Stephen Curry is wrong.
I just had to start there. In an NBA Jam face-off of duos from current NBA teams, Curry and Klay Thompson would not win. They’d be good, maybe top four, but not win. I get he’s going to pick himself, but he’s wrong.
In a fun little Bleacher Report video segment Curry picked the Splash Brothers to beat LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in the NBA Jam face-off.
This is a pretty fun little game to play come summer. Here’s how I would rank the top five NBA Jam duos on current teams.
1. Kevin Durant/Russell Westbrook
2. LeBron James/Kyrie Irving
3. Blake Griffin/Chris Paul
4. Stephen Curry/Klay Thompson
5. Derrick Rose/Joakim Noah
Dirk Nowtizki with Monta Ellis would be the sleeper there (because Nowitzki would be a force). But Durant and Westbrook would be unstoppable on offense — there would just be a loop of the announcer saying “He’s on fire” and “Boom-shakalaka!”
