This comparison just made too much sense. Both players are the faces of their respective franchises, they represent the present and the future of their teams, they’re the leaders of their squads, and they’re both genuinely genuinely good people.

On the court and on the field, both Curry and Posey are one of the best, if not, the best, players on their teams, and they’re both arguably one of the most, if not, the most, important players on their teams.

In addition to these players being the leaders of their teams, they are also two of the best players in their respective leagues. In the NBA, Curry has quickly become one of the top point guards and one of the top five or 10 players. In MLB, Posey is certainly one of the best catchers and has proven to be one of the best players, at least in the National League, too.

Both players have extreme talent, not just at their position, but also in their respective leagues. Posey was named NL MVP in 2012, and even though Curry hasn’t won an NBA MVP Award, he is certainly in contention for one this year.

Curry has one of the most pure, fundamentally sound shooting forms in all of the NBA, and the same can be said about Posey’s swing. Both Curry’s shot and Posey’s swing are beautiful to watch, and they bring a high level of execution to their games.

Off the court, both Curry and Posey are humble, grounded, hard-working, and great teammates and people. Both players have overcome serious injuries or other adversity, and they’ve both overcome that adversity because of their determination and focus. They both give back to the community, they’re both caring and kind-hearted, and they’re both the type of person and player that any NBA or MLB team would want as the face of their franchise.
