You think LeBron could have played all 5 positions in Jordan's era? You're nuts. Ewing, Hakeem, Robinson; almost every single team had a capable center that LeBron couldn't play the post on. The NBA is different, that 5 positions thing is weak. LeBron may be the best athlete, but Jordan was absolutely the best. His training and mindset. Look at what the guys that played with him say about him as a player, and these guys are basketball royalty. What LeBron does is amazing but it's just absolutely apparent that MJ was better.
Completely agree. Gretzky ABSOLUTELY is on that mountain with those guys.
The competition in the East was more pathetic than the teams LeBron took to the finals. Jordan's era was filled with sure-fire legends and gamers on almost every team.
Damn! Took it a big step farther. I agree with you on every front except the Tmac ending. Good post!
The NBA has changed, its apples to oranges. There aren't dominant centers anymore. If you think LeBron could have posted up with Hakeem or Ewing I think you're nuts. Jordan's skill set was superior for what it needed to be.
I agree with that. I'm saying at the forefront of the technological boom and cable tv, was MJ. In my generation he was the reason I cared. Bird was the reason my dad cared. Plus MJ didn't ask his owners or gms to trade for someone he wanted to help him.
MJ transcended the sport and made the NBA what it is today, almost single handedly. I don't care if LeBron can play every position or he turned a shit team into a championship team. MJ turned a playoff team into the greatest team of all time. The championships LJ won he had arguably a better supporting cast than MJ did. I'd take Kyrie over Pippen on any day. Wade too.
Really gonna have to wade through our options in the uber-talented defensive backfield we are sporting.
In the 90's they had the Home Game cups, and my grandparents got one every year. My family still has a bunch of them and we use them like regular drinking cups.
I'm freaking jacked just thinking about this class. I hope everyone realizes how amazing it is what we did this year, recruiting. Doesn't get better than this.
I'm Genoa Class on 2005. One of my best friends went to Lake he graduated in 06.
Wish men's volleyball at the High School level was more prominent. Awesome sport that you can play anywhere and for a long time! Glad we were national champs this year, Go Bucks!
Thinking Samuel is smart to go as a wr. Amazing open field vision. Can be valuable in the return game too if needed. I see him somewhere like Philly. I really think he will be successful wherever he goes.
That Noah Brown, if he ends up in New England? Watch out.
Color me wrong on this one
With following TG for a couple years now, and living in Ohio for 29 years, there's really only one reason for him to come to Ohio in early January. Anyone that says Cincinnati is dumb. If he was going to play at a smaller D1 school it would not be there. He could go play qb for lane kiffin. He's a Buckeye.
He's going to impress in workouts and get drafted. Loved the kid, good luck Buckeye! Get drafted in the 5th by the patriots and make them look like geniuses haha.
I thought he was gone for sure, but mcshay has 3 safeties projected in front of him. Which to me is completely hilarious. Especially since one of them is Peppers. Seriously someone with a pulse thinks Peppers is a better safety than Malik Hooker? I've seen it all folks.
You're ridiculous. I thought ward held his own. He gave up a couple catches but NFL corners will be giving up catches to Williams also next fall. Plus he had great coverage on him multiple other plays. For a kid that young to play that well, we should be thankful. Williams didn't kill us, and neither did Ward, not sure why this is even relevant. If we were a less talented team we could shadow a guy over their best player and leave ourselves vulnerable. Our defensive game plan was pretty good. On the Silver Bullets it's "next man up", that's why we develop so well on the back end.
Dude a Rueben sounds so good right now. But I think Wilson would come in as more of a consultant and less of an OC going into recruits houses based on his past. I'd be extatic if they hired Tebow as OC I just think there needs to be change.
Ebner was drafted. And specifically for his special teams play which NFL teams always take into account. Based on Wilsons special teams tape, you still think that's a good comparison?
Amen! When's the last time we've run a middle screen? There's literally no depth to the playbook anymore.
I agree with most of this post, but JT was a redshirt freshman when he took over in a pinch, and I believe he was at his ceiling. He hasn't become a more polished passer, his line and receivers have regressed and his flaws are showing with it
