LeBron James should not be compared to Michael Jordan, claims Stephon Marbury

Lebron James & Michael

Stephon Marbury has some spicy takes on why the NBA GOAT debate between LeBron James and Michael Jordan is an unnecessary one.

&nbsb;

&nbsb;
Marbury, a 13-year NBA veteran and a two-time All-Star with the New Jersey Nets and Phoenix Suns, was recently interviewed by Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson on his podcast. During the conversation, the 43-year-old Marbury opened up why it’s just wrong to compare LeBron to His Airness:

Lebron James & Michael Jordan

“People wanna rank Jordan? Jordan shouldn’t even be ranked. It should be Kobe, then LeBron and then you can pick guys after that. There’s just no comparison man. It’s not the same. It’s just different worlds. Different mentalities. I don’t know why Jordan’s name is mentioned in the same conversation sometimes. I’ll clear that up real quick…there’s really no need to talk about that,” the former NBA star exclaimed.

While this quote kind of makes it seem like Marbury ranks Kobe Bryant and LeBron ahead of MJ, the former star clarified his position and made it more clear that he thinks Jordan is in a class of his own:

“I mean, as the best player. Those guys, Kareem and Bill Russell – somebody had to give them the basketball to do what they do. Jordan got the ball and that was it. Those guys – Kareem, Bill Russell and Shaq… those are the type of guys that are different specimens on Earth that played the game. Jordan is not. Jordan is NOT from Earth. That’s different. He’s not the same. And I think it’ll really be insightful when they drop that Michael Jordan – when they drop that whole piece, I don’t know if they didn’t dropped it yet – that series…”

Marbury was referring to “The Last Dance” at the end of this quote, and he even thinks watching this will help show a younger generation of kids just how special Jordan was. While LeBron is obviously incredible and one of the best players ever, he just can’t be compared to Mike:

“Yeah. The crazy part is that now everybody is home, so nobody can’t go anywhere. All the kids have to watch it and they’re gonna be like, ‘Daammmnnn! This is crazy!’ So it’s kind of like going to mess things up for guys like LeBron James and them saying like – You can’t say that LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan? C’mon man. LeBron’s a great player. Don’t get me wrong. A great, great player. Unbelievable. Amazing. But better than Michael Jordan? – it’s not even the same. It’s just different. In fact, it needs no explanation or explaining because we can’t talk about Jordan’s game. It’s like we need to talk about what people are ‘not.’”

No matter what anybody says, though, the GOAT debate will continue to rage on, especially if LeBron continues playing at a high level into his late 30s and potentially even when he’s 40.

Of course, it’s always going to be tough to reach Jordan’s level given his stats and the fact that he went six-for-six in the NBA Finals. This documentary that’s coming out should certainly help younger fans appreciate just how incredible he was as a player. It will show a different side of Jordan as well, one that not many people in general have seen.

Serena Williams tweets about her daughter’s initials

Published

on

Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., the daughter of Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian, is just three years old. Shortly after her birth, Serena Williams tweeted,

“Fun fact my daughter’s initials are AO as in the Aussie open she won with me.” Serena Williams found out she was pregnant with her daughter just two days before the Australian Open in 2017.

According to Serena, she understandably felt nervous once she discovered her pregnancy because, “You hear all these stories about people when they’re pregnant — they get sick,

they get really tired, really stressed out … I had to really take all that energy and put it in a paper bag, so to say, and throw it away.”

Serena Williams hasn’t won a major since giving birth to her daughter, but many speculate that she could still have an exciting tennis career moving forward.


Some also wonder if Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. will be a tennis star like her mother, a successful tech entrepreneur like her father, or something else entirely. It will certainly be fun to see which path she takes.

‘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.
