Allen Iverson on Why No One Compares to Steph Curry

allen-iverson-refutes-matt-barnes
Stop, if you’ve heard this one before…Steph Curry is good, but back when I played we would have handled him differently! You can attribute that sentiment to a whole host of former NBA players of yesteryear. And while I know 2016 Hall of Fame Finalist Allen Iverson respects the great gentlemen that played the game before him, don’t count him among the group unwilling to recognize the greatness that is Chef Curry.

SB Nation’s Tim Cato wrote about AI’s thoughts on Curry, from comments Iverson recently made at the Sixers’ Youth Foundation Gala:

“You know that that guy is here. He’s incredible. He’s different. He’s different. He’s something we’ve never seen.”

I can’t say I disagree with AI. Like him, I am from the age bracket that thinks Michael Jordan is the G.O.A.T. but it’s true, we have never seen anything like Curry. His ability to shoot off the dribble with range out to 40 feet is sublime. How many times have you watched this shot?

We are witnessing the best player on planet earth, period. His handle, shooting, passing and movement off the ball are works of art. Never before have we seen someone wrestle the mantle away as top dog in the Association with such ferocity in such a short period of time.

When giving and receiving assessments nothing means more to an athlete in professional sports than the acceptance and praise of that fraternity; both contemporaries and the greats of the past. AI recognizes the genius and talent of Steph but probably also sees himself. Here is another little guard (as if 6’3″ is little for us mere mortals), fundamentally changing the game. And make no mistake, this revolution is being televised. I hope we can all appreciate what we are witnessing in this moment.

T.O. on Kris Jenkins Criticism: “If He Spent More Time Training He Wouldn’t Get Hurt Every Year”

Jenkins, who is on injured reserve, has been very vocal about Owens and Ocho Cinco off the field activities and tweeting.  He feels that it takes away from their focus on the field, that they are more concerned with their image than the team.

Interesting take and he isn’t the only one who feels that way, Owens decided to respond. [Read more…]

Lebron James ReTweets “Haters” To Show It’s Hard Being The King

Athletes sometimes live in the “Matrix”.

In their imaginary world, they can’t believe people don’t like them.  They assume every should “love them”.

If you read The Best of Lebron James Quotes, you know he has a high opinion of himself which is his right, but he is a very sensitive guy. [Read more…]

Tiki Barber: “You Don’t Have To Love Me..If You Hate Me, You Hate Me”

This might be the best Tiki Barber quote in years.

I don’t like Tiki, a lot of people don’t like Tiki for various reasons.  He could have went the “moist” route and cried about, but he acknowledges it and goes about his business of being an a-hole.

Here is what he had to say about being booed last week at Giants Ring of Honor ceremony: [Read more…]

Ron Artest Having a “F**K Lebron Party”? Wait..What..

I am going to have to have a sit down with these athletes about letting these club promoters just using their image and name for any and every party they are throwing they get free access to.

We already have seen how this has caused Michael Vick some trouble and there have been many incidents where an athlete name has been attached to something they have absoutely nothing to do with, but when something goes down they are held responsible.

I can only hope that Ron Artest knows nothing about the “F*** Lebron Party” and this was just an idea of an overzealous party promoter. [Read more…]
