You don't hear too many athletes in any sport talk about how they could beat LeBron James in a game of 1-on-1. But not many of them are Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy. The man with the mouth that roars.
This offseason Hardy set a goal of 50 sacks. Never mind the fact that it took Michael Strahan a full season to break the record at 22.5 sacks. And it took a gift from Brett Favre to do that. Hardy told the Carolina Observer that he would beat James in a game of 1-on-1.
Hardy once played basketball at Ole Miss so he's not lacking skills. It's just that James' game is on a much higher plateau but that doesn't stop Hardy from predicting a victory over King James.
"How should I answer this question? I would dominate that dude," Hardy said. "Hands down, guaranteed win. And that's my favorite player."
"Everyone says he can go to the NFL and play defensive end, who says I cant go to the NBA?"
"I'm not saying I would beast him, but I would definitely win," Hardy said. "I got a good shot, I got good handles, I got good size. I feel that we match up pretty well. I was a defensive player in college."
"Yeah, it would be a tight game. I'm not saying I would dominate him," Hardy said. "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 listed at 6-4 and 290 pounds. James comes in at 6-8 and 250.
Advantage James. Hardy would try to muscle him up but James is too quick and athletic for Hardy to keep up with him. But it would be fun to watch.

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 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...
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.
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 sent a little message to his haters today on Instagram by posting the following picture:

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...

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.
This statement from LeBron James is not surprising at all.
As we’ve reported over the last couple of days, LeBron gave a candid and revealing interview to Chris Broussard for an ESPN The Magazine piece.
LeBron spoke on several topics that included Allen Iverson, his fear of failure, Eastern Conference trash talk, and all things Michael Jordan.
James and Jordan don’t have...
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.

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:
