LeBron James vs. Stephen Curry: How career accolades measure up

As LeBron James and Stephen Curry continue to defy reality and time with their accomplishments, their respective places in the pantheon of all-time greats come into clearer focus.

The two continue to pile on to their resumes despite their ages — James is 38 years old and in his 20th NBA season while Curry is 35 years old and in his 14th season.

And while it may feel like an apples-to-oranges comparison, the parallels are impossible to ignore — both James and Curry were selected to the NBA's 75th Anniversary team, both have won four NBA titles, and they each stake a claim to an impressive all-time record.

No player in NBA history has scored more points than James and no player in league history has drained more 3s than Curry.

As they look to continue to add to their respective resumes, James and the Lakers are set to meet Curry and the Warriors in the Western Conference Semifinals — the fifth postseason series meeting between the two, and the first since they met in four consecutive NBA Finals from 2015 to 2018.

Here's a closer look at how their resumes measure up…

LeBron James vs. Stephen Curry: Accolades and awards

The way in which the accolades of James and Curry measure up is fascinating.

The two have the same amount of championships and Curry has one more scoring title, but James' longevity and durability are on display in most other key categories. As it stands, James has more than twice as many All-Star and All-NBA selections as Curry.

For context, James came into the league six years before Curry, who also dealt with his fair share of injury setbacks before making the All-NBA leap in his fifth season. James has been named to an All-NBA team in each year outside of his rookie campaign.

James also has the advantage in the MVP category — his four league MVPs outmatch Curry's two and in the Finals, James has won MVP honors in each of his wins while Curry has won Finals MVP just once.

LeBron Accolades Curry
4 Championships 4
4 MVPs 2
4 Finals MVPs 1
18 All-NBA 8
6 All-Defense 0
19 All-Star 9
1 Scoring titles 2
