Default Who's Game Will age Better Steph or Bron

Watching Mike and Mike and they're saying that Steph solely relies on his quickness and that Lebron would keep doing the same thing at the age of 35 .


What do you guys think?

Damn! Past him prime LeBron won 2 MVP's, 2 rings, and 2 FMVP's? Pretty much the same as a PRIME Kobe without a top 5 GOAT.

Agreed. The only thing holding back Curry would be injuries.

I can see Lebald being effective for a few more years as long as he's allowed to continue playing like a fullback. Modern PEDs are very advanced

Bran's PED induced aestheticism vs Steph's superior skill/talent. Skill seems to last longer.

This. Lebron is too skilled of a player to have a significant drop off.

If you think you can have that kind of longevity in sports with PEDs you don't know what the hell you are talking about. Curry is the one that was inconsistent and suddenly had a significant rise in production, Lebron has been doing this for a decade.

Little boy's ankle won't even hold up when he's past 30. So there's that.

Curry is amazing.
But,
But--

The reason he did so amazingly well this season is the coaching report.
No one expected him to be this good.People considered his MVP a fluke. A result of being the best player on the best team. Alot of people felt it was Harden's trophy, as evident by the Player's Choice to give it to Harden in their little ceramony. No one expected the Warriors to be this good. No one expected them to get -better-, or their range (Klay and Curry) to be so insane.

Yet, you could almost see teams starting to figure them out very slowly, you saw it in the playoffs, when their astounding 73-9 record turned into losses in every round and a 3-1 defict against OKC.

I think Curry is going to be figured out mostly in terms of just shooting.
He'll remain Elite, but he will need to add something new to his game. He's a gifted passer, I'd like to see him focus on maybe facilitating more now that he has Durant on his team, who is in my opinion still the better scorer.

Lebron has shown to always add new things to his game, he rented a jumper for three seasons between 12' and 14', he might get it back. He shot like 40% from 3point range. He added a post game. His passing is constantly getting better. His defense is superb, I think we'll see Lebron adding new things to his game, I'm really liking his step back from the right and left block right now. He shoots it at short range but his ability to get inside and overpower his defender is still on the mark, giving him that shot.

I think Lebron at 35 is going to be more impressive then Curry at 35.

Lebron

Usually it makes sense to go with a shooter here, but Curry's greatness stems from his ability to get a shot from anywhere on the court. This is largely due to his quickness and ability to shake his defender. He's not super athletiic but as we saw against K-Love, if he can't shake his defender he'll be in trouble. By the time he's 35 I seriously doubt he'll be consistently making it rain from half-court as he did this season

Lebron, even without scoring, can significantly influence a game. He'll very likely be more of a distributor in the twilight of his career, and his defense shouldn't suffer too bad with the decline in athleticisim due to craftiness. Offensively, he knows how to score efficiently and play in the paint, so he can still be a threat there if he can't take his man off the dribble anymore. This all assuming, of course, that he can't still do that at that age. The guy is a physical marvel and maintains prime conditioning, so it's very likely him at 35 will still be capable of what he can do now

I go with Bron also
