‘I Don’t Think LeBron Can Catch Him’: NBA Analyst Details Why Michael Jordan is the GOAT Over LeBron James

Published

LeBron James

The GOAT conversation has been an ongoing debate for several years now. While many regard Michael Jordan as the best ever, there are tons of fans who believe LeBron James can one day surpass him. But how far is LeBron from overtaking Jordan as the greatest player of all time?

LBJ has a chance to win the fifth ring of his career this season, and the 2021 championship, will further shorten the gap between him and Jordan.

ESPN’s Max Kellerman gave his insight on possibly the biggest argument in NBA history. He was asked if a fifth ring will make LeBron James the undisputed GOAT in the league.

“No, LeBron’s already got the career argument it’s either him or Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar]. And I think in the pros, in the NBA considering how LeBron is still playing at his age, it’s LeBron. Peak is [Michael] Jordan. And I don’t see where LeBron will elevate his peak over Jordan’s.”

Max then explained the true definition of a player who is eligible to become a GOAT.

“When we talk about greatest guys, I don’t we just mean add up all the winshares by the end of the career… Nor do I think it’s just a guy who had one season…We’re talking about a guy who’s prime, who concentrated the highest level of performance over a significant number of years.

“… Every time you gave, here Jordan here’s an All-Star, he won the finals in under 7 games. And put up numbers of the likes we’ve never seen. And was an all-world defender. He’s the greatest of all-time, I don’t think LeBron can catch him.”

Max made an extremely valid point about Jordan’s peak being higher than LeBron. During their respective peaks, Jordan was indeed the best player the world had ever seen.

Can LeBron James ever catch up with Michael Jordan?

Longevity is the biggest point in favor of LeBron when he is brought up in the GOAT conversation. However, his versatility to play multiple positions is something that is overlooked various times.

Regardless, LBJ still has a few years left in the tank. He might win two more rings to at least equal the number of rings MJ won in his career. Maybe then, James will have a chance to overtake Michael Jordan as the GOAT.

What are your thoughts on the GOAT conversation? Is it LeBron James or Michael Jordan? Let us know your views in the comments section down below.

Roger Federer: ‘Rafael Nadal is the ideal guy for young people’

Published

If Roger Federer was a kid while Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic were playing tennis, who would the Swiss have cheered for? In a recent press conference, the Swiss player said: ‘For sure Rafa. He is exciting, energetic, the ideal guy for young guys.

I appreciate both of them a lot, they play an unbelievably physical tennis, they are younger than me but I feel better physically than how I was doing at 20 years. I keep what I have. I would definitely like to have those powerful serves, you launch the ball and the point is ended, like Karlovic or Isner, or maybe Edberg’s volley because I always loved volleying players.’ Meanwhile, the Rolex Shanghai Masters Tournament Director Michael Luevano confirmed Federer’s commitment to Shanghai: ‘As long as he is playing, he is going to play in Shanghai.

He will put it in his calendar. We have a friendship, he has his co-partnerships, Uniqlo is one of the largest commercial partners in Asia and I would not be surprised to see him many times in Japan in the future. He was in Tokyo prior to Shanghai.

I know he loves Japan, Asia and Shanghai obviously. We are blessed to have the world’s greatest tennis player.

‘It is sad to see’ – Rafael Nadal disagrees with Novak Djokovic in Monte-Carlo

Published

on

The tournament had to be cancelled completely last year, meaning the current edition is the first since 2019, when Fabio Fognini was a surprise winner.
That has come with a trade-off, though, with no fans able to attend due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis

“Sad not to see the crowds here this year after practice,” Rafael Nadal, the 11-time champion, posted on his Instagram story.

Interestingly, that was at-odds with Novak Djokovic’s observations, with the world number one saying the lack of fans has made for particularly good practice conditions for players.

“It is better for training because there are no fans, there are only people from sponsoring companies,” the world number one told the Serbian media.

“Under normal circumstances, it is difficult to provide courts for all players and then practice for an hour here, an hour there at the very beginning of the tournament when there are many players.

“Now I notice that most players train one on one without the need to share the court. That may be a positive thing.

“You play matches where you usually train, meet people and spend time outside.

“Now we have time to look at the trainings of other players, for which we are grateful because we are in safe conditions due to all restrictions and it’s nice to catch some fresh air.”

Coach: I don’t think people can see how quickly Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal hit

Published

Neil Powell, the coach of Blitzboks — the South African national rugby sevens team — was impressed by the mix of outstanding shots thrown on the court by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal during the exhibition that took place on Cape Town Stadium, South Africa, about a week ago.

Neil attended the match with his family and he had a great time seeing the two tennis titans. In an interview for Rugby Rocks, Powell expressed his opinion on the Cape Town exhibition. “It was incredible […] Everybody was filled with excitement for one of the biggest sporting events to ever take place in Africa.

We (Neil and his family) were fortunate enough to get some amazing seats, right by the halfway line and next to the tunnel where the players walk out”. the coach said. Blitzboks’ coach led the team to a first-place finish in the 2016-17 World Rugby Sevens Series, so he knows what talent looks like and how to make it shine.

Yet, he was delighted by the virtuosity of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. “I don’t think people watching on TV can actually see how quickly they hit that ball. The ball literally misses the net by millimetres, and it is incredible to see how much spin they can get.

I don’t think they played as competitively as they usually would at Wimbledon, for instance, but their competitive side was definitely still there. That level of tennis was absolutely astounding to see in person”. Powell said.
