At 20, MJ was no LeBron

Lebron James is King James and the other guy... Well we'll always call him: HIS AIRNESS!

At 20, MJ was no LeBron

Certainly Lebron James is not Jordan and for sure he will never be…Jordan was one of a kind and for as long as basketball exist that is how is going to stay. Lebron James is a great and very exciting player to watch and even though people are comparing his #’s to those of Michael Jordan, he will never be that one for whom we cherished and even try to imitate on the court. MJ’s style was unique and we all know it, even his archenemies admit it. His Airness carried basketball on his shoulders so it will be unfair to put Lebron James or any other player in that position, but at the same time he does remind us of the golden days when MJ used to delight us with his charisma and unbelievable moves which by the way brought the game to a new level worldwide.

At 20, MJ was no LeBron

Already Lebron’s numbers are better than any other NBA player at that age including MJ’s when he was 20. King James is flying High and as long as he keeps practicing and taking the sport serious, keeping that flame within him burning for that challenge of being the best, staying out of trouble and of course injuries, I think he’ll flight as high as MJ. Who knows probably one day we’ll say: His Airness and King James the best Basketball players ever…. His Airness King James

Canseco disputes news story on book

I know what you saying Garfield and I for one hope that sports in general scrub the already infested system as we know it now, but leave the matter to the investigators and the sports officials to take care of that. I mean people that are qualify. Canseco’s book -Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits and How Baseball Got Big are nothing but the resemblance of how players with money have used any means to cheat the sport. What is worse is that they got away with it and there’s nothing we can do. Garfield I’m not for the blind eye and let me tell you something, this book is coming out Feb the 14th and Jose Canseco should change the title and called it: I used steroids and cheat it, smash hits and got big.

I personally think Jose Canseco is trying to make a buck out of this whole ordeal betraying his friends and even mentioning the President, saying that the president should’ve known what was going on with steroids back when he was the governor of Texas and owner of the Texas Rangers…Canseco please stop the drama and leave baseball alone!...

Will Phil Jackson come back to the Lakers?

I have to say that it will be unprecedented given Phil Jackson’s trajectory as a coach to come back after leaving the job like he did, but if you take into consideration that he likes a challenge and this one looks like it would be a great one, if not the greatest for any coach to get this young talented player (Kobe) to listen and play at the level that Phil used to have in Michael Jordan and getting him to commit to the team will be very interesting to watch. On the other hand there is $$$$$$ and money nowadays plays an important role given the fact that most of the decisions in sports are based on $$$$$ lately, I would say there is a chance we might see it happened…By the way big Diesel say today that he whishes Phil the best if he decides to come back to the Lakers. Last but not least let’s remember the relationship with the VP which looks pretty solid given the time they’ve been together. The VP looks eager to see Jackson coach her team again and who knows if that might influence Jackson’s decision. In the end I think that after all have being said and done it is up to the Phil Jackson to make the ultimate decision, and that my friend is the truth of the matter in this discussion.

Too Much Punting

Belichick is known for his unorthodox strategies Doc, it is interesting, and I have to tell you these Patriots are a very electrifying team to watch not only for how unpredictable they are, but also their defense is rock solid. It is true the way Football coaches devote themselves to studying the game all the time including long nights watching videos, in contrast much of the baseball coaches take the night off after each game.

Fans find zero tolerance

I guess we all agree here that for years a lot of fans have been abusing the players’ verbally, same players who did not pay any attention to the fans yelling all kinds of defamation and condemnation and whatever you can think of. I for one thought that the player’s concentration level was so high that they could not hear the fans attacks, or if they did hear them they used them to build more energy, to play better and turn the negative into positive like Michael Jordan used to do, but I’ve being proven wrong throughout the years. Here is an example: “Latrell you allow more unopposed penetrations than Paris Hilton.” That’s what the lady said to Latrell Sprewell, Latrell then answered “suck my d***”, and then all hell broke loose. I personally think she had a good point on criticizing Latrell’s defense in that particular game. I want to ask you guys, do you think this kind of comment should be considered as heckling or should it be considered as performance criticism?

Maybe the disregard is part of the pose. That is the heck of a thing to write, especially from someone who doesn’t know me. Allow me to say something and not to you Uncle Toby, Gspm or you Dusted “I couldn’t care less what you guys think.” That nuisance the heck out of you guys and I know it but at the same time don’t take it to heart for it is just a saying. There are a lot of sports out there, a lot of choices and options so one might think not everybody likes the same sport and that is the same as saying that everybody likes the same colors, but that does not give one the right to reprobate and say the sport is not worth watching or that it needs to change to be good or because whatever the f*** the game is boring, if is boring probably you are watching the wrong game and should move onto something else. I for one say that Basketball is a great game with a lot of integrity and of course like any other sport you’ll find some players who are not fun to watch or you might think that sometimes they only care about contracts and don’t give a rat ass about the game. I say the game of Basketball is bigger than that. Basketball is a great game wherever is played in parks, the streets in your backyard in a video game anywhere. The fans who understand how difficult is to be able to play this game and how demanding of your intellectual judgement, skills and physical capacity this sports is, turn to appreciate it and if you play it long enough you’ll get to love it, like I do.

What? , I can believe this guy chicobangs what the hell is you are talking about? . Stop grouching about the rules and the players and everything else, I mean what you are saying doesn’t make any sense ( two quarters ) that really shows the love you have for the sport, if you don’t like it fine! But there are some of us that do, look at baseball nine innings sounds kind of long but nine innings is the rule along with all the others end of the story. So you better get this in your head FOUR QUARTERS AND NINE INNINGS anything else is not professional.

Humanity!, if this lyon awakes I see 30 points per game. Macgrady is unstopable, teams usually have to double team him but since he moved to the Rockets he's being very quiet. "T-Mac's problem is that he enjoys scoring way more than he does." lets not forget he was the scoring champion for the 2002-2003 season, Just give T-Mac the time to ajust to this team and you will see this scoring machine in action but for now is trancision time.

Bruce Lee - film star or sportsman?

“Kimura then took Gracie down with an Osotogari followed by Kuzurekamishihogatame." Sound like anybody would give up to that, but not the Gracie’s they will go for the long run and even though that kimura guy used what’s being to be known as Royce best weapon the ARM BAR not even them Helio surrender. I remember when Royce Gracie fought Ken Shamrock, Royce got couple of broken ribs, almost lost an eye but when he applied that ARM BAR the fight was over!. Even though Shamrock made Royce retired after that terrible beating, I still believe that Royce Gracie was the best UFC champion ever.

Oh great, just what we needed sometimes I ask myself when is the NBA going to apply a more intense sensitivity training to these players or is it that the situation between players and fans wich is doing nothing but degrading the sport will continue?, by the way Latrell is going to make $14.6 mill this year and he is talking about needing money to feed his family to wich I aks, what the hell?

Bruce Lee - film star or sportsman?

Bruce Lee known as the founder of Jeet Kune Do, which isn’t really a martial arts style at all (or wasn’t, originally). Jeet Kune Do was more a method of approach, a way of looking at the martial arts with the intention of bringing them out of what Bruce saw as a rather hidebound and stale situation. The essence of the Jeet Kune Do philosophy can largely be brought down to one sentence: do what works, and know why it works. Royce Gracie, one of the greatest fighters I've seen!( I've seen almost all his figths ) I might be wrong but his best grappling move comes from Jet Kune Do ( see enter the dragon, beggining of the movie) never forget that.

Bruce Lee - film star or sportsman?

Bruce Lee was the greatest martial artist ever not only for his time but also for the present and the future, he also did not want people to call him “ movie star.” He thought the word itself was an illusion. He wanted to be called a good actor or a good martial artist instead. My personal opinion is that he was a genius of martial arts and that his style and ways of fighting were real and don’t get me wrong I mean movies are all rehearsals but some of those moves he could perform in real life encounters, this guy was always looking for perfection and in some aspect of his short life he achieved it. I was amazed when I found out that Jackie chan was one of his stunt men ( see enter the dragon, the cave action ) and that he chose his funny style because he didn’t want to be in the shadows of the deadly fighter ways that Bruce Lee protracted. Jet Lee uses his face expressions but too much computer animation and special effect doesn’t make up for skills even though he has a lot of that. “ Bruce Lee the greatest martial artist of all time.” , I for one think so.

McCain Wants MLB to Tighten Drug Policy

Oh great, now we have politics and congress trying to govern america’s past time sport, I say we are doomed and on the other hand we have Mr. conte saying that another undetectable steroid had already hit the black market ( soon enough we gonna have to get the DEA involve into this ) In contrast a professor from the university of Wisconsin said: he believed steroids should be legalized for adult athletes, saying medical risks are often overstated. Already, athletes are allowed to enhance performance by numerous artificial means, he noted. For instance, it is legal to stimulate oxygen-carrying capacity by training at an altitude or by sleeping in a hyper baric chamber, but not by using the endurance drug known as EPO. DAH! EPO is a drug Mr. Professor. My opinion is that an athlete that uses a drug to get superiority over another athlete in any sport is a cheater and should be disciplined for cheating period and for Jones if she or any other olympian athlete did it they should take the gold from them and give it to the ones that competed with integrity. In brief cheating must not be allowed in sports period.

Hey, daddisamm is a visionary and I think some of these visions might become true... No wonder why the Red Sox won the MLB trophy last season, they really enhance their performance against my team the Yankees and them like it wasn't enough they enhance their performance against the daddisamm's Twins.
