At the Los Angeles Dodgers' annual Fan Fest event on Saturday, pitcher Clayton Kershaw was asked to share some thoughts about Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors' seemingly unstoppable star.
The query came after Kershaw sent this tweet out a few days ago while Steph and the Warriors were playing the San Antonio Spurs (the Warriors went on to win 120-90 in convincing fashion):
There is not a more exciting person to watch in all of sports right now than steph curry. Honorable mention to cam newton and jordan speith— Clayton Kershaw (@ClaytonKersh22) January 26, 2016

It's hard to argue with Kershaw's take, considering Curry's game that night:
When asked during his media session about the MLB's equivalent to Curry, Kershaw was initially stumped before thinking of an answer:
"Man, I don't know. I couldn't go to sleep. I watched the game, every time he touched the ball I was just so excited to watch what was going to be next. I think we have those guys, there's guys that are pitching…I'm trying to think of names. You know, when Mike Trout takes an at-bat, when Bryce Harper takes an at-bat, people just kind of stop and want to watch. That's what it was to me…I couldn't go to bed, made me stay up too late."
As for the Super Bowl, which is a week away, Kershaw also shared his thoughts about the big matchup between Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos and Cam Newton's Carolina Panthers:
"I think it'd be really cool if Peyton won, if this ended up being his last year. If he got to win, that'd be awesome, but I don't know much but I feel like the Panthers are a pretty unbelievable team. I think it's going to be tough for them."
