This is fucking ridiculous. Motherfucker thinks he can beat the best fighter ever when he's never fought "professionally". I get it that he's had some success in regional kickboxing exhibitions but seriously it's like an MMA guy who was all state in highschool at basketball saying he would be a better player in the NBA than LeBron.
Edit: It's far worse than if Roy Jones Jr. who played in his day's equivalent of the GLeague had said he could win NBA MVP. However no one is dumb enough to make those kinds of assertion but every tough guy thinks he's the toughest guy even though there are just as many levels to fighting as there are to games like basketball.
Well color me surprised, LeBrons coach sucks up to LeBron.
It's not a huge stretch for his current coach to say that he's the greatest of all time given that he's the all time league leading scorer, who also happens to be higher than anyone else on that list on the all time assists list, and is also the all time leader in the league in playoff wins. LeBron's not the GOAT to me but his resume makes it so anyone claiming he is doesn't have to be sucking up to him.
Because Darvin Ham is a douche.
After he wins his 5th FMVP and 3rd Olympic gold next summer he will be
I don't watch women's basketball. Could not begin to tell you anything about it. I know there was one of the players in Russia for a while.
the guy at Sporting Logically putting the teams into tiers. He has the Blazers at the bottom.
A lot of people think that the Blazers will be tanking again in the upcoming season (including this guy) and will unload Jerami Grant and Jusuf Nurkic if they can. That's why the Blazers end up on the bottom tier.
However, if the Trail Blazers' plan is to keep their veterans and win games, I don't see Minnesota and Utah that much separated from the Blazers.
New Orleans in the "A" tier seems like dreaming of a everything-goes-right scenario.
If the Blazers are trying to win, the Western Conference is going to be even tougher than it was last season, when the Pelicans missed the playoffs by losing at home to Oklahoma City.
Houston has added more young talent along with a veteran point guard and a new coach.
San Antonio has Greg Popovich coaching Victor Wembanyama along with a decent young roster.
Tanking means they're losing when they could be winning. I believe the first part but not the second.
Wow, really? MAYYYYYBE Utah won't be TOO far ahead of us, but Minny certainly will.
Yeah they will be losing this year. Just not on purpose.
That is until they have lost enough that it makes sense again to lose on purpose AGAIN.
LeBron's totals are over 20 NBA seasons compared to MJ's 13. LeBron is a freak of nature, but he's not close what MJ was and he never has been.
LeBron is up there with Magic, Shaq and Oscar. Somewhere behind the real men in MJ, Russell, Wilt and Bird.
That's not Lebron's fault Jordan is not as long lasting. Lebron wins 5th FMVP and 3rd olympic gold. Even more will crown him the goat. I will not debate them.
It's not LeBron's fault at all. He's great. Just not great like Jordan, Russel, Wilt or Bird.
He might be the best physical talent right up there with Wilt.
It's not that there are negatives here. Just different levels of greatness.
