I love this.
The most outrageous statement I’ve seen all year.
Before reading this, remember, I’m a Denver fan, so my opinion on these 3 is completely unaffected by who I support.
Firstly, Rose is earning more than LeBron did in the first year of his Heat contract. Basically, his contract is bigger than LeBron’s, and he is NOT as good as LeBron. Or Kobe, for that matter. I’m sorry, that’s just a fact.
Also, people say Rose is “clutch.” Here’s a nice fact for them.
During the 2011 playoffs, Rose averaged 27.1 points per game, but only shot 39% from the field and 24% for three pointers.
THAT’S NOT CLUTCH AT ALL. CLUTCH IS COMING UP BIG WHEN IT MATTERS MOST AND THE PLAYOFFS ARE ALL THAT MATTER. CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR REGULAR SEASON MVP FOR BEING SO BIG ON THE BIG STAGE.
But, obviously we overlook the fact that he was garbage because he’s “doing it for the city.” The same city that he’s currently STEALING like $16M from. Imagine if you could get paid $16M without actually creating a single product. I mean, Luke Walton has been more productive than Rose this season.
And, LeBron does it for the money? After Rose signed the second biggest sneaker deal in history ($280M from Adidas as they try desperately to be trendy and hip and continuously come up short because they didn’t sign LeBron, KD or Kobe). Obviously he’s earning that money “for the city,” and not to fulfill whatever wants he has in life.
Kobe does it for the fame? I remember when he stubbornly demanded a trade OUT of LA, aka the biggest market in the NBA. Obviously his want to play for a team where he is wanted and can play the game his way is just another cry for more fame, though, despite already being in one of the most famous cities in the world.
People say LeBron fans are dumb, that Heat fans are dumb, and sure, some of them are, but come on, this is taking it to another level.
