Local high school basketball coaches weigh in on NBA's LeBron James

The incessant comparison flared up again on Monday afternoon after James single-handedly carried a lacklustre Cleveland Cavaliers to a fourth straight conference finals after dismantling the no.1 seeded Toronto Raptors 4-0, prompting golfing great Tiger Woods to settle the matter. He has a ring for every finger plus one he could give the victor of a Charles Barkley/Karl Malone cage match.

"We got a lot of heart and a lot of talent on this team, nobody expected us to get this far", said Tatum.

Tatum scored the go-ahead layup as the Celtics punched their ticket to the conference finals with a 114-112 Game 5 win over Philadelphia. And even if he doesn't do enough to catch him - at least in the eyes of Jordan's most ardent supporters - he'll look up when he's done running, at the end of the chase, and realize he did something just as meaningful: He took his own path.

Japan says to normalize N. Korea ties if nuclear, abduction issues solved
During his meeting with Xi, Kim said the Korean Peninsula's denuclearisation was Pyongyang's "clear and consistent position". At the news conference, Li said negotiations for the FTA and RCEP must be sped up because "free trade has to be maintained".


"LeBron James makes $100m off the court".

"It's my first year, so I don't know".

As someone who grew up watching Jordan and grew wise (I hope) watching James, I still think it's easier, at this point, to laud Jordan as basketball's invincible hero. He finished the series averaging 34.0 points, 11.3 assists and 8.3 rebounds per game on 55.3 percent shooting from the field, numbers Toronto's All-Star backcourt of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry weren't able to match together. What I can say for certain is that there aren't many players in the history of the league to play this well 15 seasons in.

The song appeared online during his performance as host on U.S. sketch show Saturday Night Live . The artist has said is next album will be his last under his stage name.


James, who is being considered as one of greatest basketball players of all time, will enter the unrestricted free agent this summer. That was Michael Jordan in 1993, Jordan's last season before his first retirement.

"Obviously they are two supremely talented players and they have both changed the face of the teams and it is definitely going to be an interesting off season when it happens", Lopez told Times of India.

It shouldn't come as a surprise considering Kyrie Irving assisted LeBron more than anyone else on the Cavaliers in last season's playoffs.

Three reasons the Golden State Warriors dominated the NOP in game four
The New Orleans Pelicans had moved within one victory of tying the series, and Green realized that the team had to play better. Houston leads the regular series match up with the Warriors at 2-1 this season. "It was good to hear that from him".


The program, called I Promise, made groundbreaking news three years ago when it was announced that they would spend $41M to send kids to college for free. In 20 years, future generations will make claims about the greatness of this unknown future superstar with all of the certainty of a Jordan, Kobe, or LeBron fan.
