OAKLAND (CBS SF) – The NBA’s premiere three-point shooter apparently believes he’s also the leagues real scoring king.

During an interview on the Dan Patrick show Tuesday, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was asked who was a better scorer, him or four-time MVP LeBron James. Here’s the transcript from CBS Sports, beginning with Patrick’s question to Curry (Curry’s comments in Bold):

Who’s the better offensive player, you or LeBron?

A better offensive player, me or LeBron? That’s the first time I’ve ever been asked that question. Me.

OK.

Gotta be, right?

I don’t know. I’d assume you would think [that]. You’re a pure shooter. He can score, you can, too, but I think that, you know what, the correct answer is probably that LeBron is a better scorer but I think you’re the better shooter. How’s that?

Yeah, I don’t know. ‘Cause he obviously demands a lot of attention on the floor, but I like to say I can distribute, get my teammates involved and be a playmaker as well.

What about points? What if I said, ‘You go out and score as many as you want in a game, and LeBron goes out?’ Who scores more?

I’d like to say my shot would help me in that situation ’cause if I get a double-team, I can hopefully shoot from farther out.

The comments come about four minutes into the clip:

The comments have quickly made news on the internet, prompting this tweet from Curry.
