His everyman quality, said ESPN analyst Jalen Rose during a media call with P.J. Carlesimo previewing ESPN/ABC’s slate of five NBA games Christmas Day, including ABC’s telecast of Curry’s Warriors against James’ Cavaliers (5 p.m. ET). Jalen added that at 6’3,” 190 pounds, Curry could be your neighbor, vs. a physical marvel like the 6’8,” 250 pound James. Not to mention a giant, like the 7’1” 325 pound Shaquille O’Neal.
