For this current season Curry has 30.1 points average per game.
LeBron only has 25.3.
Curry also has 19.7 PIE and Le Bron James only has 18.9.
Curry has 90% free throw and 45% 3 point
James has 73% free throw and 30% 3 point

I used this in my own argument

Stephen Curry has the potential to be better than LeBron, but as of right now he is not.

Stephen Curry didn't really break into stardom until last year. For most of his career he was just known as an average NBA Player. LeBron James has been the NBA's top star ever since he entered the league in 2004. In his 13 NBA seasons, LeBron James has made the NBA all star game 12 times. This is Much better than Curry's mediocre 3 games in 7. The year that LeBron failed to make the All star team, he was named rookie of the year, yet another honer that Stephen Curry does not hold.

The pointed out in your argument only points out shooting statistics, something Curry specializes in.

LeBron James has 6.8 assists average per game this year
Curry only has 6.7

LeBron James has 7.4 rebounds per game
Curry only has 5.4

LeBron also has a FG% of .520 while Curry only has a .504%

People are quick to label Steph the best often forgetting Lebron is having a great year as well.

6.8 and 6.7 are close enough wouldn't you agree?
So is 0.520 and 0.504.
I have one question. If James is better than Curry and James played longer. How come most people at first think Curry is better?

People think Curry is better because he is exciting to watch. He shoots a lot of threes but here's the difference between the two. James could literally dominate every position defensively and offensively, whereas Curry can only play offense and as a point guard. Speaking of which the assist stat, is not close enough considering James is a Small forward and Curry is a point guard. Curry should be averaging more assists than James if he were "better".
