The Chiefs are headed to the Super Bowl for the second straight season, and Damian Lillard compared Patrick Mahomes’ dominance to Stephen Curry.

Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs defeated Josh Allen’s Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game. He’ll be going to the brightest stage the NFL has to offer for the second straight season, something Stephen Curry knows a thing or two about.

Cury was put on the NBA’s brightest stage five straight seasons after erupting as one of the best guards in the NBA. Not a top-five pick either, Mahomes, like Curry, wasn’t expected to be this good, but he’s become the NFL’s best quarterback in a matter of three years.

Mahomes will now have a chance to win his second straight Super Bowl, and despite Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers being on the other side of the ball, and having a rare home-field advantage the Chiefs are expected to enter as favorites.

Like with Curry, Mahomes doesn’t have a ton of regular-season achievements. He does have an NFL MVP and has led the league in touchdowns once. Aside from those, he’s never led the league in passing yards.

Curry has two NBA MVPs, but neither player consistently leads their respective league in many individual stats. It doesn’t matter though because everyone knows that in the postseason you aren’t wanting to play either of them.

With that being obvious, Damian Lillard, a superstar guard for the Portland Trail Blazers, made a cross-sport comparison of the two that will both go down among the greats in their respective sport.

“He’s like the Steph Curry of the NFL,” Lillard said when speaking on Mahomes according to Bleacher Report.

While Lillard has never played Mahomes obviously, he knows a thing or two about Curry, who sent him home in a clean four-game sweep in the 2019 Western Conference Finals. Curry’s excellence as the league’s all-time best shooter has elevated the sport.

Curry, like Mahomes, has changed the game and both will continue to dominate their respective sport.
