Golden State Warriors defenseman Stephen Curry is unstoppable on the court…or dig for criticism. Curry lived up to his “petty king” moniker on Friday by tacking on former quarterback Mike James’ claim that Curry is a one-dimensional player.

James’ comment came during a podcast appearance. James was asked to compile a list of the top five players in the NBA. He left Curry off the list, saying that his playing style is “quite one-dimensional at times”.

Curry addressed this comment without prompting while at his annual youth camp. Curry was asked about a one-on-one meeting with any of the campers. He joked that “it was bad for them” before adding, “Even if I’m so one-dimensional.” Curry tried to keep a straight face, but ended up bursting into laughter, calling himself “shallow”.

James, who played four seasons in the NBA, has five great players on his list. Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Joel Embiid, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luka Doncic round out Mike James’ top 5. It’s a good list, but Curry probably deserves to be on it. Even though Curry was delisted, James called Curry a “superstar”.

This compliment did not compensate for the “one-dimensional” criticism of Curry, which was to be expected. It’s one thing to take Curry off the list, and quite another to criticize his game. One would think that the one-dimensional player would eventually be stopped once the league adjusted to his play. Curry has proven time and time again that he can adapt and remain an elite player. His various awards and numerous championship rings prove this.

Curry probably didn’t need to answer James. While his comment went viral on social media, it wasn’t enough to make people question Curry’s abilities.

However, it doesn’t befit a guy who calls himself a “petty king” to let the criticism go.
