Disrespecting an all-time great like Stephen Curry doesn't usually go down well with the NBA fraternity. Chris Broussard was the latest to express his anger after hearing what former Brooklyn Nets player Mike James had to say about the two-time MVP.

On the Players' Choice podcast a few weeks ago, James left Curry off his list of five best players in the league. He said that he felt the Golden State Warriors guard was "one-dimensional" at times.

"Steph, how he plays and how he gets stuff off, it's just kinda one-dimensional at times," James said in the podcast.

Broussard was quick to jump to Curry's defense, stating that James' comments were "asinine."

"If you put Steph in your typical NBA offense, oh he would get his. He would put up big points," Broussard said, "He will put up more assists than he does now."
"When you say an asinine comment like that as if Steph is Reggie Miller. Not to diss Reggie Miller, we know he was great too. Reggie wasn't about to run point like Steph, Reggie couldn't pass like Steph."

James later took to Twitter to clarify his comments about Curry. He explained that his comments were taken out of context.

James played for the Nets in the 2020-21 season and hasn't been on an NBA team since then.

As great a player as Curry is, he still gets a ton of hate from fans, the media and sometimes, other players in the NBA. Some would think that changing the game of basketball and collecting a ton of silverware would be enough to garner the respect of everyone in the game. But that's not the case with the Warriors guard.

Before their run to the title this past season, many analysts wrote off the Warriors and claimed that they couldn't continue to success with their roster built around an aging Stephen Curry. However, Curry and company proved them wrong and showed that they could still be at the top of the basketball world.
