However, the Warriors were beaten 4-3 in the best-of-seven Finals by James’ Cleveland Cavaliers last season and Parker feels that gives the former Miami Heat star the right to call himself the best.
“I think it [the best player in the NBA] is between LeBron and Curry, then everybody has a different opinion,” the San Antonio Spurs point guard told Omnisport.
“But now you have to say LeBron because he won the title. For me, if you’re champion, you’re number one.”
Curry has also been likened to legends like Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson in recent times, but Parker says any comparisons can only come when the Warriors point guard has retired.
