Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors said he’s ‘surprised’ that former coach Mark Jackson sees James Harden of the Houston Rockets as a more worthy MVP candidate.
“If you twisted my arm today, I would probably vote for James Harden,” Jackson said. “The reason why is because he single-handedly has put that Houston Rockets team in the position that they’re in today.”
The comments come as a stark contrast to the way Jackson had previously championed his former charge as a superstar in the league, while he was coach of the Warriors.
When asked Friday about his former coach’s comments, Curry said he was a bit surprised.
