I’d like to highlight that it’s not constructive to use the phrase “he’s a bust” when disagreeing with Kwame Brown. It’s a tired and overused insult. Brown even refers to himself as a “bust” and his channel is named “Bust Life”. This kind of language distracts from the actual topic at hand.
Like most humans Brown says some thing I agree with and some things that I don’t, but we have to learn how to channel those discussions without getting overly personal.
There was a viral social media rant by Brown questioning LeBron’s status as the GOAT due to his inability to get a got up shot during the last moments of Game 4 in the Nuggets series, leading to the Lakers’ defeat.mer player, explained that it’s not just about statistics but also about other factors that contribute to being the GOAT, which is why LeBron is not always considered as such.
It seems unlikely that most people listened to the entire rant. However, there were some compelling points made, as well as some that I personally disagreed with and outright lies. Overall, the Brown’s style resembled that of someone discussing sports.
Shannon Sharpe, a close friend of LeBron, was displeased with Kwame Brown’s remarks. Sharpe stated that someone like Brown, who was considered a bust in the NBA, should not be commenting on LeBron’s greatness.
However, it’s worth noting that both individuals are entitled to their own opinions. Sharpe cannot dictate whether or not a former basketball player has the right to speak about the sport. Similarly, Brown should not be surprised that Sharpe, who earns a living by sharing his opinions on TV, would criticize his comments about LeBron, a mutual friend.
Ultimately, their conversation becomes a repetitive exchange where neither party is willing to alter their viewpoint. Perhaps, Sharpe could facilitate a discussion between Brown and himself in a respectful manner. It would be beneficial for them to have anike mature individuals.
Here are the videos of them speaking on each other and LeBron.
