Is Stephen Curry a better offensive player than LeBron James? The Golden State Warriors guard seems to think so.

In an interview earlier this week on The Dan Patrick Show, the host asked Curry what his reaction was to news James was returning to Cleveland. He then asked who was a better offensive player.

"That's the first time I've ever been asked that question," Curry said. "Me. Gotta be, right?

Patrick said he thinks James is a better scorer, but Curry is the better shooter.

"(James) obviously demands a lot of attention on the floor," Curry said. "But I like to say I can distribute, get my teammates involved and be a playmaker as well."

The eight-minute long interview also touched on other topics including the recent injury to Paul George and trade rumors involving Warriors' forward/guard Klay Thompson. And Curry also weighed in on which NBA players he'd pick if he was fielding a football team.
