During a conversation with rapper Fat Joe on Instagram, Iverson weighed in with his opinion on Jordan vs. LeBron James for the title of greatest ever.
“As much as I love Michael Jordan, like, dawg, man, LeBron James is the one, dawg,” Iverson said (via TMZ Sports). “He the one, man. That mother fucker is the one, man.“
That is what we call a left-handed compliment, it was not intended as an insult. BUTT being that James has a disdain for vulgarity, as he says, I wonder if him being called a mother-fucker by one of his admirers bothered him??
In a TMZ Sports interview at the Cavaliers’ practice facility Wednesday, LeBron was asked about his view of “locker room talk.”
“What is locker room talk to me? It’s not what that guy said,” LeBron replied. “We don’t disrespect women in no shape or fashion in our locker room.”
LeBron continued: “I got a mother-in-law, a wife, a mom and a daughter, and those conversations just don’t go on in our locker room. What goes on in our locker room is sporting events that happened the night before, about family, about strategies that we may have that night. But what that guy was saying, that’s not…I don’t know what that is. That’s trash talk.”
Anyone that believes that there is no vulgarity in the locker-rooms; I still have some prime swamp land for sale.
Is James better than Jordan?? All we can go by are the complied statistics when James decides to hang up his jock strap.
Possibly the money people can make a fictional video contest between the two men like they did for Rocky Marciano and Mohammad Ali to determine who was the best.
For all of you that do not know it; Rocky came out on top. Ali reluctantly admitted The Rock would have beat him.
Super Fight The Super Fight was a fictional boxing match between Rocky Marciano and Muhammad Ali shot in 1969 and released in 1970. At the time, Ali and Marciano were the only undefeated heavyweight champions in history and fans often debated who would win had they met in their primes.
I certainly have a lot of respect for both men. One of my deepest appreciations for Ali is how he treated the little kids that admired him. He did not see color or race. It is too bad he got hooked up with the wrong crowd for that short period.
Michael and James, lets get it on.
