Jordan plays in 14 All-Star games, James His 15th appearance on Sunday until he heard comparisons for years – invited some of them to wear No 23 and openly looking for the Status of the Goat – James sees the big wheel that turns with Duke's feel that Sion Williamson is compared with him.
"I think the comparison will never stop and I think it's great for the game," said James. you will always make comparisons – "What player reminds you of it? This person is similar to this man. I was never my nose, nor did I have anything to say with the comparisons with me and Zion, and Zion with me. I think it's great. I think it's great for the game. His athleticism, we all see. Its ability to jump beyond the 10-meter edge is incredible. I think what's amazing is in its size, speed, speed, speed. And to add to that, I think he's just a great kid. "
James spoke equally brilliantly about his former teammate, recently revealed to the reporters that he had called on James this season to apologize for how their partnership had collapsed."
"I think I've always loved Kyrie before I met him until I became his teammate even now, "James said," so the phone call, more than I, I think only to see his growth … He needs a real man and a real man – and a real person to know who they are – to be able to call or do something and be able to see errors is either to believe that they have some abuses and then to be able to deal with it and then they can either apologize or say: I was ready for something, but I was not really. "
… I really do not want to talk about it too much because it's not for everyone … I love Kyrie I love everything about Kyrie. "
James touched on different themes during a 20-minute media madness, including the following:
* He supported Colin Capernik and Eric Reid after their lawsuit against NFL was settled on Friday
"I stand with Kaep. I kneel with Kaep, "James said. "I feel what he was talking about, no one wanted to listen. No one really wanted to know where it came from. I think anyone who will sacrifice their livelihood for the better of us all, can respect that. And he did it.
"You have a person who has actually lost his job because he wanted to stay for something that is more than him." I am happy to see the news that he has won his costume. I hope that's a lot of money that can put not only him but also leave their grandchildren for the rest of their lives. because it is important to all of us – not only African Americans, but also all who want to advocate something more important than them. "
* One anniversary of Laura Ingraham's" Closing and Drilling "Comments:" I think everything in life must be appreciated, whether good or bad. … I knew at this point that I was bigger than just basketball and I had to say something. Because it was not just about It was for all of us, it would be [like] to tell you, guys, to shut up and just write, and you boys do not have a platform. Shut up and be a doctor. Or just shut up and become a lawyer. Just shut up and be a teacher. Shut up and do whatever your profession. And I think this is unfair to all of us because we are much more than what our professions say or what our name is, says Tag. So, in order to have this platform, as I did a year ago, and to have this feeling in my body when I heard this, I think it not only resonated with me but it has been resonated with many people to be able to feel like they can be more.
"So, as I said, I thanked her for this moment and we all have to thank her, as I said, you have to appreciate everything that comes in, whether it's good or bad because it helps you learn, this helps you become better in what you are, it helps you get a better understanding of who you are or more understanding of the situation at this time and time I am always grateful not only for the good, but also for the bad , which has come into my life since I was on this journey. "
* He meditates on his last chance to share two with Dwayne Wade on Sunday. 19659031] "Every little time I get with him this weekend will always be valuable and great," said James. "I mean, we've been together for almost 17 years since we met at the Chicago plant in 2003. And from that moment on, we just knew we'd be together for a long time and that did not stop. From me as a rival, from my teammate, to being a competitor again, from sharing tips from a father to sharing marriage tips with sharing tips, it's really bigger than basketball when it comes to me and D-Wade. Because we can actually see each other and know what we think each other and know how they feel each other in certain moments and times of our lives.
"So to be here and for me to be able to choose to be part of LeBron's team to be here this weekend is obviously a hot sweet moment." The bitter part is that it's his last weekend when he is on the All-Star weekend and knows that his journey ends with the basketball player, but the sweet point is that we have a lot more lives to live together and we will continue this.
