Stephen Curry says Shaquille O’Neal is ‘dead wrong’ thinking Lakers could beat Warriors

first_imgThere has to be a way to make this matchup happen on NBA 2K, right? Shaquille O’Neal thinks his Lakers teams could ‘easily’ beat the Warriors From auto insurance commercials to pregame shows, Shaquille O’Neal is always good for a few laughs. And on Wednesday, he provided a hearty chuckle for Stephen Curry when he claimed his Lakers teams from 1996-04 would “easily win” against today’s Warriors.”Oh, he’s dead wrong. Of course. We’d beat them. We can go back-and-forth all day,” Curry told ESPN.com. “I saw Shaq today talked about his three-peat championship team would have destroyed us for whatever reason. All those conversations are just entertaining because, one, who knows? Two, the game is so different. Teams that dominated their respective eras need to be left alone in terms of what that means. Hopefully that’s how they’ll approach us when they talk about us 20, 30 years from now looking back.” Despite his confidence, Curry admitted it’s hard to compare iconic teams from different eras. Los Angeles captured three straight championships from 1999-02, while Golden State has taken home three of the last four titles and currently lead the Western Conference with a 19-9 record.“In terms of having three banners up there and create parallels and comparisons to how they dominated the league through their run to what we’re doing now, I think that speaks a lot on its own. Just in terms of us accomplishing the goal and fulfilling the potential that we have,” Curry said. “And we’re still in the middle of it.” Related News WATCH: Michael Jordan slaps Malik Monk on Hornets bench after late-game techlast_img read more
