Stephen Curry has had a great time in the 2022-23 NBA season so far. Before suffering a serious shoulder injury, Steph averaged 30.3 points per game. That speaks at length about the season he has been having. Despite that, his performances haven’t seemed to be convincing people that he is one of the best players in the NBA. Soccer hotshot Kylian Mbappe seems to be one of them.
The PSG superstar attended the Brooklyn Nets vs Los Angeles Clippers game recently, which seems to have infuriated LeBron James’ fans. He was left speechless after watching Kevin Durant swerve through the Clippers like it was nothing. Together with that, Mbappe also revealed his favorite NBA players right now.
Who are Kylian Mbappe’s favorite NBA players?
After the game, the French superstar revealed that LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, and Jayson Tatum were his best 5 players in the league.

Some might wonder where the defending champ Stephen Curry‘s name is on Mbappe’s list. Although the fans of these players were satisfied to hear his opinion, The Chef‘s supporters were far from happy. Fans decided to have a go at Mbappe for his opinion and tore him apart on Twitter, bringing his “ball” knowledge into question.

Thank God Messi humbled this fraud

For the fans that don’t know, Mbappe and France lost to Lionel Messi-led Argentina in the FIFA World Cup 2022 Finals this year. It surely was a tough pill to take for Mbappe, especially since his team even after he bagged a hat trick. With that said, fans were sure to hit Mbappe where it hurt the most. A fan tweeted, “Well we know he a curry hater now. That’s why u lost to the [GOAT] in world cup u fraud.”
Steph’s fans came to his aid and pointed out that Mbappe doesn’t know ball, as well as he’s a “Curry hater.” Mbappe has always been a big fan of LeBron and has never openly spoken about Curry in his interviews. Whatever the case, the conversation of the best players in the league is subjective to each one’s opinion and it shouldn’t be any different in Mbappe’s case as well.
