“I’m the Michael Jordan and Stephen Curry of music!” : Kanye West has created a parallel with the biggest trendsetters in the NBA

0

Michael Jordan is one of the biggest names in basketball, if not sports. The 6’6 guard revolutionized the game of basketball. He was one of the main reasons the NBA was gaining popularity around the world. Not only did Michael Jordan go a flawless 6-0 in the NBA Finals, but he also managed to do it in a way no one else has been able to replicate.

Stephen Curry, on the other hand, changed the way the game of basketball is played for good. The 6’2 point guard has shown us all that you don’t have to be tall and stout to find ways to score and be successful in the league. Using his grips and his shot from distance, Steph showed us how the 3-point line can also win tag team championships.

These two players changed the way we view modern basketball. Using the two as an example, hip-hop sensation Kanye West posted a tweet putting himself in the same position as these two legends.

Kanye West compared himself to Michael Jordan and Stephen Curry

In 2016, Stephen Curry broke NBA records for most 3s in a season. He had 402 triples during the regular season. For the same, he won the NBA’s first-ever unanimous MVP. In the same season, his Warriors won 73 games in a season, breaking the record set by MJ and his Bulls in the 1995-96 season.

Earlier in 2016, Kanye West tweeted, calling himself Michael Jordan and Stephen Curry of music. Kanye deleted the same, but not before Bleacher Report got their hands on the same, and they even made a visual for the same.

With that one message, Kanye West created so much ruckus. Everyone picked a different part to be mad at. Some pointed out that Kanye called Steph better than players like LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Others pointed out that West wasn’t talking about other big names like Shaq, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, etc.

Stephen Curry’s reaction to Kanye West’s tweet

In 2016, Steph was still getting used to stardom. He had just won an MVP and a championship and was enjoying his time in the spotlight. When asked about Kanye’s tweet, Curry had three main words to describe it: funny, weird and honored.

“I’ve seen a lot of his crazy, outlandish tweets, especially in the last month, and then when I saw my name crossing the tip of his fingertips, it was both funny and honouring. But also very weird that he put me in the same conversation as Michael and Kanye.
