Shannon Sharpe: “Despite Bill Russell’s tweet, LeBron James is still the better athlete.”
LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers may be an incredible athlete, but the 11 × NBA champion and 5 × NBA Most Valuable Player big man Bill Russell wants everyone to know that he was a freak of nature even then.
After the ex-NBA center and current ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins, James quoted “The sportiest player in NBA history”.
Russell got involved and reminded Perkins of his athletic qualifications during his heyday.
After seeing Russell’s answer, Perk apologized to his former teammate LeBron from Cleveland Cavaliers and said Russell may be the sportiest player ever.
Learn why Famer Shannon Sharpe’s three-time Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall believes James is the sportiest player ever:
In 60 games so far this season James averages 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 0.4 blocks and 10.6 assists per game, while shooting at 49.8 percent from the ground and 34.9 percent from the deep.
