Unless you've been living under a rock for the last couple weeks, you should've noticed how incredible Stephen Curry has been playing throughout the NBA Playoffs. As of right now, Curry is averaging 26.5 points, 8.9 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game on 46% shooting from the field (43% from three-point range). One notable player that has taken note of Steph's skills is Metta World Peace, who took to Twitter to make a bold claim with a small caveat.

Hey MWP, are you trying to give Kobe Bryant even more motivation? As if he didn't have enough already, coming back from this torn Achilles injury.
