Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Panthers DE Greg Hardy has made a bold proclamation that has nothing to do with football. In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, the former Ole Miss basketball player claims that he can beat NBA MVP LeBron James in a game of one-on-one.
Q: If you went 1-on-1 with LeBron who would win?
A: How should I answer this question? …I would dominate that dude. Hands down, guaranteed win. And that’s my favorite player.
A: I’m a beast
Q: He’s pretty good too, though.
A: What’s your point? Everyone says he can go to the NFL and play defensive end, who says I cant go to the NBA?
Q: I’m not saying you can’t. I’m asking, why do you feel so confident that you’d beast LeBron James in a game of 1-on-1?
A: I’m not saying I would beast him, but I would definitely win. I got a good shot, I got good handles, I got good size (6-foot-4, 275 pounds). I feel that we match up pretty well. I was a defensive player in college.
Q: Doesn’t he have about four inches on you? (LeBron is 6-foot-8, 250 pounds)
A: Maybe. I got like a 39-inch vertical. I’m a little bulkier too. But nobody knows I got hops.
Q: Didn’t you dunk on an 11-foot goal this summer? (Editor’s note: It was a 10-foot-3 goal.)
A: I got drastic hops. I feel I have a lot of the same tools he has and it would come down to who was the better basketball player.
Q: If y’all played to 11 by ones, who would win and what would be the score?
A: I would still win. Probably 11-9.
Q: Oh, so it’d be a tight game?
A: Yeah, it would be a tight game. I’m not saying I would dominate him. That was a joke. I feel like I’d definitely win. I think there’s a game there. I don’t think that I’m trash and I don’t think that he’s trash. I think it’d be two dominant athletes playing and I’d come out on top.
Hardy is 6’4 and 290. King James is 6’8 250. Winners are supposed to have confidence but confidence doesn’t mean crazy…
BEST OF MAXIM
Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy, who played basketball for part of one season at Ole Miss, made the bold claim in a recent interview that he could NBA superstar LeBron James in a game of 1-on-1.
When Charlotte Observer reporter Jonathan Jones asked who would win a 1-on-1 game between Hardy and LeBron, Hardy answered:
"How should I answer this question? ...I would...
LeBron James and a bunch of creative teens express themselves with the same intense passion LeBron brings to the game of basketball using his celebratory “LeBron face.”

LeBron James shot 56.5 percent from the field last season for the Miami Heat, highlighted by a 21-game stretch in which he shot 63.2 percent from the floor and largely attributed to more focus toward scoring in the paint.
James was asked whether shooting 60 percent from the field is attainable for him this season.
"I don’t really set out goals as far as what I want to shoot...
Let's all thank Greg Hardy for making it OK to never trust anything he says ever again.
Hardy, a defensive end for the Carolina Panthers, scoffed at a reporter's question about whether he would beat Miami Heat forward LeBron James in a one-on-one basketball game. Hardy respectfully declined to challenge the supremacy of the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player and admitted...
LeBron James is in a very good place right now and I’m not talking about physically (even though Miami is a pretty damn good place), but I’m referring more to his mental state.
That’s what winning back-to-back Finals MVP awards will do for you. James was already regarded as the best player on the planet prior to winning a championship but now he finally realizes it.
Next time you block a shot, stomp the yard, or whatever else, make sure to show off your new "LeBron James Face,” as this new Sprite commercial shows.
LeBron James has a message for all the teams in the Eastern Conference.
He hears you talking.
After being pushed to a game 7 in the Eastern Conference Finals, and listening all summer to the return of Rose in Chicago, James and the Heat are aware people are gunning for them.
James not one to back down from anyone, said there was tension, but no rivalry with the Bulls and Pacers....

In case you’ve never heard of basketball, there’s this guy named LeBron James. He plays basketball, and he’s pretty damn good at what he does. At this stage in his career, there’s really no point into even looking at his numbers, because he gets more and more solid as the seasons go by, and he has the physical makings of someone who can play until he’s 50.
But, we love...

I have my own theory as to why LeBron James and Michael Jordan aren’t that personally close, but I’ll share that with you later. First, here’s what LeBron had to say about whether or not he wished he had more of a relationship with Jordan to Chris Broussard. “Ahhh, I mean, I don’t know. […]
Second-year shooting guard Bradley Beal torched the Miami Heat on Tuesday night with 29 points (in 31 minutes, no less) in a 100-82 victory for the Washington Wizards. But it was LeBron James who stole the show in the second quarter, throwing down back-to-back powerful fast break dunks that prove he’s ready for the season to begin.

Andrew Wiggins has been called the best player to come out of high school since LeBron James. While James has not talked to Wiggins, the Miami Heat superstar forward has some sage advice for the KU freshman phenom.
Nearing the end of the first half of tonight’s Miami Heat/Washington Wizards game, it appeared that LeBron James was going to take the ball to the basket.
However, instead of attacking the rack, he found teammate Dwyane Wade on the pretty alley-oop assist that D-Wade threw down with two hands:

A lot of debate has happened over whether or not LeBron James is a guy you'd want taking clutch shots if the game your life or all of humanity was on the line. Guys like Carmelo Anthony Kobe Bryant Dirk Nowitzki and others are people you're supposed to want to pick to take that shot in today's NBA. Michael Jordan Larry Bird Robert Horry and Reggie Miller are historic...
