Just six years ago, Tatum was a middle schooler hoping for a follow back from LeBron James. He has a ring for every finger plus one he could give the victor of a Charles Barkley/Karl Malone cage match. "But now I'm like, 'Geez his triple doubles are history now because of Russell Westbrook, '"McGill said". Scoring is hard! It's even harder when the other team focuses all of their defensive efforts on you. That moment came in 2007 during Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
"First of all, I think that being great is doing something that no one can do, but also what separates those people, the ones you mentioned like LeBron or like what I'm thinking with M.J. or Gretzky, it's just the duration".
Tiger Woods has added his two-cents to the recurring debate on whether LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan. He knows he is the best player on the Earth. As a new generation of basketball fans join the ongoing conversation about who is the greatest, those of us who were fortunate enough to live through the playing careers of past legends would be wise to just enjoy the ride instead of critiquing every twist and turn. Okay, great. Now can you do it for a month, can you do it for a year, now do it for a decade, do it for a decade plus. At least he can go knowing he gave his best shot with a flawed team for his hometown.
Tatum, who is the nephew of former Cavaliers guard Larry Hughes, who played with James, is spotted in the photo with the king in middle school at a time when his dream was to make it into the National Basketball Association. We were talking about Kevin Durant, who had sacrificed points for a chance to win a championship with the Golden State Warriors and McAdoo said he understood Durant's decision. "It depends on what options are available to them, but I've got to tell you, man, they have a couple of great lanes to go down, whether it's free agency or developing the young talent that they now have, they're in a really great position", Bryant was quoted as saying by Christian Rivas of Silver Screen and Roll. He just bullies you.
LeBron doesn't have to mature as a player. And he has done it with a team that Cleveland basically blew up at the trade deadline. On top of that, Jordan averaged more points per game in his career than LeBron as Jordan averaged 30.1 points per game.
The Cavs don't have to design a play for that.
The Lakers have been the most talked about destination for LeBron all season.
