*Well gosh darn, we didn’t see this one coming. Who knew someone could top King James?!

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry has supplanted LeBron James and now stands as the most popular NBA player in America, according to the findings of Public Policy Polling studyvia an ESPN report. The study was conducted shortly after Curry won the NBA MVP Award, arguably influencing the results to some degree.
