Not on the King's watch.
That's the message that LeBron James had for Stephen Curry, ferociously blocking the back-to-back MVP with under five minutes remaining in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
After the rejection, King James turned to Steph and spouted off some trash talk... but what did he say?
Perhaps something to the effect about him being the real unanimous MVP — and not Curry. After all, King James has now scored 41 points in each of the past two Finals' games and is averaging a ridiculous 30.2 points, 11.3 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game over the course of this series.
Well, whatever LeBron's trash-talking words were, Steph wasn't in the mood to share them after the Cleveland Cavaliers' 115-101 win over his Golden State Warriors last night.
When asked what LeBron said to him, Curry looked dejected when saying, "nothin.'"
One can make the argument that LeBron's words paved the way for Curry to get frustrated to the point to which he'd argue a call and toss his mouth guard, earning the first ejection of his career, moments later.
Don't forget the look Steph shot at the King during Game 4, either.
While we still wonder what LeBron told Steph, the feeling that this NBA Finals' series seems to have gotten personal will likely only add to the drama of a do-or-die Game 7 on Sunday night.
Who will have the last word then — LeBron or Steph?
