LeBron James is, in my opinion, the best player in the world right now but I think that this was the last season when he was the best player in the NBA. Kevin Durant is the next best player and he is at this moment the best two-way player in the league.
After another NBA Finals losses (2nd L against the Warriors in the last 3 years), LeBron James and Draymond Green exchanged some words about the super-teams, and recently LeBron James said who can beat him in the post, according to the last Road Trippin’ with R.J. and Channing podcast of the season late on Thursday night. LeBron James was a guest and it was a great podcast.
One of the last comments James made was the most hilarious. It came after the host, Allie Clifton, asked if Channing Frye has scored on James in the post in practice, since Frye apparently once told her he has.
“Channing has never scored on me in his career. There’s only three people in this world that can score on me in the post: Shaquille O’Neal in his prime and … Who was it? Oh, it’s two, and Jesus Christ.”
When James said that, he and everyone else was laughing. It seemed like he’d made that bold claim as a joke before, so guys, calm down, he’s not being serious. It’s a great line, though — put that on a T-shirt.
It got funnier when Frye asked, “What about Dalai Lama? He’s too skinny?”
James responded, “Nah. Jesus Christ and Shaquille O’Neal in his prime. It damn sure ain’t Channing Frye.”
Of course, LeBron jokes about the post up, but let's continue with this, why not?
