In our NBA news roundup, ESPN released another ranking, the Warriors are reportedly eyeing Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden has been sued

A group of ESPN writers, reporters, and analysts ranks LeBron James and Stephen Curry as the two highly favorite players of this decade who has made a big influence on the NBA of today.

The following players that are in the top five with James and Curry are James Harden, Kawhi Leonard, and Kevin Durant.

As you look back on the past 10 years, James and Curry are combined with six championships in 10 years. LeBron James won three MVP awards during this decade, while Stephen Curry won two MVP awards.

James and Curry will be remembered as stars who made history. LeBron James started in Miami back in 2010 and joined the Big Three with Chris Bosh and future hall of famer, Dwyane Wade. Making the Miami Heat a powerhouse until LeBron, eventually, decided to go back to Cleveland.

As for Stephen Curry, he has been with the Warriors from day one. He was able to join this journey with other great players such as Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, DeMarcus Cousins, and Kevin Durant.

Another thing that makes these two players special is how they carried a team. LeBron James was able to win multiple NBA Champions with both the Heat and his beloved Cavaliers. Stephen Curry and the Warriors have the all-time record of 73 wins in one season. Once the Warriors were defeated by James and the Cavaliers, the Warriors made their move by getting Kevin Durant on the team that following summer.

Sure, Durant won back-to-back NBA Finals MVPs during his time with the Warriors, but James and Curry took the game to a whole new level. From the dunks to the fancy passes, to the ankle-breaking moves, to the big game-winning shots, to the championship rings. These two guys built an impact on the next group of young players, who will try to take their place for the next decade.

Just like when Magic Johnson and Larry Bird changed the NBA in the 1980s while Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen did during the 1990s, LeBron James and Stephen Curry have changed the game in the 2010s.

James Harden is being sued

The Warriors eyeing Giannis?

Giannis Antetokounmpo is expected to headline the 2021 NBA Free Agency period, assuming he doesn’t sign a contract extension with the Bucks before then.

One team to keep a close eye on regarding a potential landing spot is the Warriors, according to New York Times writer Marc Stein. It wouldn’t be totally surprising to see Giannis make the move to the Warriors, if he, in fact, would want to leave the Bucks in free agency.

Over the last few years, the Warriors have emerged as one of the premier franchises in the NBA. However, the ball is firmly in Giannis’ court, and he roughly has two seasons to make a decision.
