I usually break it down on a higher level but today, to quote FM Blue, “I could fake the funk and get my point across, or drop a little science, leave you MC’s lost”. Number 23 (Michael Jordan) has been disrespected, and by someone who benefited from his career!
The false 23, or in actuality number 6 (LeBron James), has disrespected the man that he capitalized off from. And we’re not just talking about Nike’s $90 Million dollar contract that LeBron received. A company Jordan helped build into a juggernaut. A home LeBron has found refuge, only to find his shoes to have disappointing sales year in and year out! How about the fact that LeBron wore Jordan’s number, or the talks of “LBJ being the next Jordan” and how that made him famous before he actually accomplished a feat? LeBron James wants to be known as the best of all time, which means better than Jordan! So, he cares what people think but doesn’t care what the guy he emulated, down to the Jersey, thinks!?!? He even sat in the audience, of a Chicago Bulls game, wearing a Number 00 Chicago jersey, to make a point to the league, that he wanted the Bulls to get the number one pick so he could play there. Remember the pre-draft interview with LeBron & Carmelo Anthony, when Melo said I think’s it’s rigged, and Bron put on a huge smile with a look as if to say, “well I wouldn’t have came out and said it”? He copied Jordan’s jersey number and wanted to play for his team, and LeBron signed with Nike. Still think LeBron doesn’t care what Jordan thinks? Then how about this, upon becoming a free agent the two teams LeBron considered signing with were Chicago and Miami! And that’s today’s reality check folks!
