King James better watch the throne.

Golden State Warrior Steph Curry brushed aside Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James during an interview on The Dan Patrick Show, when asked who was better offensively.

“A better offensive player, me or LeBron? That’s the first time I’ve ever been asked that question. Me,” said Curry. “He obviously demands a lot of attention on the floor, but I like to say I can distribute, get my teammates involved and be a playmaker as well.”

Numbers don’t lie when it comes to the actual stats; Curry holds a career average of 44 percent from the three-point line in comparison to LBJ’s 34 percent. He also has the upper-hand in 3-pointers with 261 to James’ 116. Only when it came to points per game did James take the lead, ranking third in the league at 27.1, while Curry landed seventh at 24.0.

But if football were the game, Curry said he’d make James a tight end with him as the quarterback, of course. Listen to the full interview below.
