  • Curry was also awarded his first-ever NBA finals Most Valuable Player of the year with his Game 4 performance standing out
  • Ray Hudson, a football commentator and a self-confessed fan of Lionel Messi, likened the two celebrated sportspeople in a tweet

Popular football commentator Ray Hudson has drawn comparisons between NBA star Steph Curry and Paris Saint-Germain's forward Lionel Messi.

Steph Curry was in the element of his game as he led his Golden State Warriors side to a fourth NBA title in eight years. Curry grabbed 34 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists to put the series to bed in Game 6 against Boston Celtics(4-2).

His exploits saw him win his first-ever NBA finals Most Valuable Player(MVP). The 34-year-old was in tears as the clock wound down and he was mobbed by his teammates afterwards. His performance in Game 4 of the series, where he single-handedly turned the series on its head with a dominant game-high of 43 points, will be particularly be etched in the minds of the "Dub Nation."

Curry has in the past shown fondness towards the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner. The two sporting legends have been pictured with photos of jerseys of PSG and GSW. When Messi joined PSG last summer, he picked a jersey number which Curry also wears.

Hudson is known for his commentaries where he waxes lyrical about Lionel Messi.
