“Incredible. Put us on his back,” Draymond Green said after the Game 4 win. “Willed us to a win, a much-needed win. A game we had to have. Came out and showed why he’s one of the best players to ever play this game and why this organization has been able to ride him to so much success. Just absolutely incredible.”

While Curry has been thrilling NBA fans for over a decade, there are still those who doubt his impact on the game, citing his lack of an NBA Finals MVP as proof. Friday night, James was having none of it, responding to a tweet from Dwayne Wade regarding Curry’s doubters. 

“FACTS!!! ‘THEY’ will try to do anything in their powers to not acknowledge simply how ‘DIFFERENT he is! It’s Rare and rare is not liked & appreciated,” James said on Twitter, responding to Wade. 

Game 5 of the NBA Finals is Monday night at 9 p.m. ET in San Francisco.
