There are great performances and then there’s what Stephen Curry did for the Golden State Warriors on Friday night. While his team was embroiled in a crushing, protracted struggle not to cede a 3-1 lead to the Boston Celtics in the Finals, Steph kicked into gear that the likes of Skip Bayless claimed didn’t exist.

He switched to beast mode on the track and pretty much made sure the Warriors didn’t lose Game 4.

In 41 minutes of play, Steph dropped a whopping 43 points on 14-of-26 shooting, hit seven three-pointers and added 10 rebounds and four assists. And he got better as the game progressed, scoring 24 of his 43 goals in the second half and 10 in the crucial last frame.

In fact, Curry was so good that two multiple NBA champions and future Hall of Famers were prompted to rave about his performance via Twitter. Namely LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

As if Curry’s emphatic response to critics like Bayless wasn’t enough, Wade – who some consider one of the game’s all-time heroes – dropped the following Confirmation of the baller:

“Everyone keeps talking about what Steph isn’t. Let’s talk about what he is. A BAD MFer!”

This tweet prompted LeBron to do so reply: “FACTS!!! ‘YOU’ will try to do everything in their power not to just acknowledge how ‘DIFFERENT’ he is! It’s rare and seldom isn’t liked and appreciated.”

King James also tweeted: “Cook is amazing!!!”

Of course, LeBron has been saying a lot of good things about the dubs lately. In the trailer for HBO’s latest episode of The Shop: Uninterrupted, the GOAT nominee stated that Golden State would be his top pick of all this year’s playoff clubs to join, given the opportunity.

The former Heat duo also engaged in a back-and-forth that served as a stern warning to the Celtics should they hope to prevail in the championship fight.

“Poor shot selection vs. GS = [skull emoji]’ James wrote Wade replied: “From here on out… it’s all about the little things.”

The fact that Curry, for all his size and accolades, was never recognized as an NBA Finals MVP was a bone of contention for naysayers. If the Dubs can win two of their next three games and secure their fourth title of the era, it will be almost impossible to overtake him again.

In four finals games, Curry averaged 34.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.8 assists with splits of 50-49-86. Meanwhile, the Warriors have outstripped the Celtics by 5.2 points per 100 possessions while he was on the court.

Per FanDuel Sportsbook, Steph is now the favorite to take home the trophy as a -150 bet. Jayson Tatum is #2 at +200, followed by Jaylen Brown at +650.
