Steph Curry has taken on the nickname of “The Baby-Faced Assassin” throughout his career. This is despite the fact that he is hardly a babyfaced anything at 35-years-old and 12-seasons into his NBA career. Others will always see LeBron James in him.
During this weekend’s American Century Championship golf tournament, Steph accepted a new nickname. One fan boldly called him “LeBron James’ dad. That nickname might stick, because it garnered quite a bit of attention.
Steph and wife Ayesha have three children, but LeBron James is not one of them. It is also impossible for LeBron to be Steph’s son, because he is older by three years. This comment from the gallery still made Steph Curry smile a bit.
The last time they went head-to-head, LeBron gave Curry a ticket out of playoff contention. We all know what happened to the Lakers after that in the first round as the Suns ousted them.
We’ll have tot see if this new nickname sticks around. Steph and LeBron have battled on the court and they are likely to do it again. Now they could have a bit more trash talk.
