Guarding Steph Curry is no easy task, just ask LeBron James.
With 7:23 remaining in the second quarter of the Warriors' 117-112 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals on Tuesday at Chase Center, a clip went viral of James appearing to talk to Curry as he followed him to the end of the Warriors bench.
In speaking to reporters after the game, Curry explained what James was saying to him in the moment.

"He was just joking around about having to guard me until I got all the way to the bench," Curry said.
Call it what you will, but that's just an excellent full-court press by James.
It's never wise to take your eye off Curry until you are 100 percent certain he is out of the game.
