El jugador más grande en la historia de la NBA abrió un debate que terminó por inspirar mi post, Kobe Bryant o Lebron James ¿Qué jugador es mejor?, la respuesta se me antoja difícil pero al menos lo intentaré.
A diferencia de Jordan no tomaré los títulos como parámetro y buscaré centrarme en el rendimiento individual y cualidades para despejar la incógnita, de corazón espero lograrlo.
Confieso que ya me hacía falta escribir sobre NBA, la verdad es que el ambiente había estado frío hasta que sacaron a relucir el tema de siempre, uno tan trillado como el eterno debate de quién será el próximo Pelé o el heredero de Maradona, hoy más que nunca me doy cuenta de como hay temas que solo sirven como ganchos mediáticos, aunque no se aporte nada nuevo.
Como nadie hablaba del regreso de los equipos de la NBA a las canchas hubo que recurrir al debate de siempre, mover un poco las cenizas para que vuelva a encender la llama de la discordia ¿puede LeBron James ser mejor que Michael Jordan?
Reports have surfaced just outside of Akron, Ohio that their hometown hero and his main opponent during the 2012 NBA Finals have been working out with each other to prepare for the beginning of the 2012-13 season.Yes, LeBron James and Kevin Durant are both in northeast Ohio training going through what they call “Hell Week,” an intense twice-a-day workout regiment facilitated by LeBron’s trainer, Mike Mancias. This is now the second year in a row they’ve done this and they’ve actually dubbed the getaway as “Hell Week 2.”
While the two seem chummy about the situation, even tweeting with pride about their joint workouts, many have cried foul about this type of endeavor. The two have now been pitted against each other as rivals and the thought of the two being cordial and friendly isn’t something that’s taken kindly by fans in the NBA. Especially in an era where there are more hugs and hand slaps taking place after the game than a family reunion.
Team USA went ballistic in the third quarter after Argentina played the Americans especially tough in the first half of their final pool A game, thus opening up a huge lead en route to a 126-97 victory.
The lead was just 60-59 as both teams went back to the locker rooms at halftime, however, a 42-17 outbreak by Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s squad in the third period ruined any chance at Argentina trying to stay in the game. LeBron James and Kevin Durant carried the torch for the USA in the second half, as James scored the first seven points in the third quarter for the United States, and Kevin Durant just kept raining threes from beyond the arc. Durant scored 17 points in the third quarter (including 5-of-6 from range) and led all scorers with 28 in the game. James chipped in with 18 points and 5 assists.
Of course, the two biggest plays of the third quarter had nothing to do with Kevin Durant and LeBron James, but rather a nut punch and an emphatic slam dunk.
The USA Basketball team finally got the first one out the way, as a France team with six current NBA players were no match for Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s 12-man unit. The 98-71 victory in London was the first of five games for Team USA as their play in Pool A started on Sunday.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Carmelo Anthony held a small American flag uniform patch in one hand, realizing that clutching it was the best way for him to keep it safe.
For this was a uniform accessory that truly has meaning, a flag from a U.S. military serviceman that presumably will be sewn onto the USA Olympic basketball teams’ (men’s and women’s) jerseys to be worn in London.
Saturday in the nation’s capital, the NBA superstars who make up the USA squad – and one rookie, center Anthony Davis – held a practice leading up to Monday’s exhibition game against Brazil in Washington. It was a treat for select American military personnel and their families, who packed the D.C. Armory to see the gold-medal favorites in action as the main attraction of Nike’s World Basketball Festival.
