Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry took a not-so-subtle jab at LeBron James over the weekend, performing the #LeBronChallenge next to Kyrie Irving at the wedding of former Warrior Harrison Barnes.
The video was posted to Instagram on Sunday and captured by Sports Illustrated on Twitter:
Curry's movements were an obvious play on the workout video James posted in June after shaving his head. The song, "First Day Out" by Tee Grizzley, also featured in both videos.
Irving's presence makes the video even more noteworthy, given recent reports that he requested to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Irving reportedly wants to escape James' shadow and lead another franchise.
The Cavs have not made it clear whether they plan to acquiesce. The four-time All-Star still has two seasons (and a player option) remaining on his contract.
While Irving laughing along next to Curry will cause a stir, it's really a nonissue. Steph's mockery was funny; Irving laughed because it was funny. James and Curry have a friendly rivalry, and LeBron's Halloween party shenanigans last year made basically anything fair game.
Plus, the NBA summer is a whole lot more fun with Curry adding fuel to the seemingly growing beef between the two Cavs stars.
