The stars are aligned in New Orleans this weekend for the NBA’s annual All-Star Game.

It’s the perfect stage to remind everyone that Miami’s LeBron James and/or Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant is the game’s best shooter, right? Not according to James and Durant.

“Steph Curry [of the Golden State Warriors] is the best shooter ever,” Durant said Friday afternoon during Media Day. “His shot is just so effortless.”

Curry, who is fifth in the league in scoring (24.6 points) and 15th in 3-point shooting (41.5 percent), appreciates the admiration coming from Durant, who is in a race with James for this year’s Most Valuable Player award.

“Any time you get a compliment from arguably one of the two best players in the league right now, that’s definitely something I don’t take for granted,” Curry said. “[Durant is] a guy that’s playing unbelievable right now. So for him to notice the way that I play and what I can bring to the game, it’s cool. And I appreciate it.”

James, who has been the NBA’s Most Valuable Player four of the past five years, nodded in agreement with Durant’s assessment of Curry.

“I was going to Steph Curry’s games when he was in college [at Davidson], and I knew he was special,” James said. “I was there when he was able to do it — not against his conference in college — but against the big teams, in the [NCAA] Tournament, and also against North Carolina.
