The NBA’s Great White Shark

If you haven’t guessed, we’re talking about LeBron James.

This guy isn’t just pretty damn good, he’s the best player in basketball. We’ve served up gallons of haterade towards the man on the BSP blog. He symbolizes what we despise about the NBA. Namely biased officials, love of ratings, outright homerism streaming out of the mouths of so-called “analysts”, sportscaster worship of players and the fact the league is just a commercial for league apparel sales. I’m never going to call a basketball player who didn’t even go to college the initials of a former U.S. President. Then, the LB James reality is, he’s the best player in that sport, on both ends of the court and by a lot. He’s like a Great White Shark loitering on the court.

Did you see any of the highlights of LB James playing against the New York Knicks today?

Virtually everything was a spectacular dunk OR a tremendous defensive play. LB James trailed four Knicks jogging down the court. They allowed LB James to race by them and get a mind-bending dunk. Later, LB James intimidated J.R. Smith into missing a layup, then blocked a layup/dunk attempt by Tyson Chandler. CENTER Tyson Chandler.

LB James can defend anyone, with the possible exception of a point guard like a healthy Derrick Rose, Chris Paul or Tony Parker. No one can defend him for an extended period of time. He’s going to make you pay for a bad pass, or lazy play.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
