  • LeBron may not want to hear this.

  • Consider yourself disrespected because you will never be my number one.

  • Nothing gets to six Nothing.

  • How come you know why?

  • Do you know why?

  • I'll tell you what I apologize.

  • There's one thing he could dio erase the six NBA Finals losses.

  • I think we all know Stephen A his vocal chords that's been well established over the years.

  • Jay, what do you think?

  • So three days after the Lakers win the world championship through a pandemic, congrats key through social injustice through the season stopping, picking back up, being in a bubble unprecedented times the loss of Kobe Bryant winning at four the Lakers organization.

  • We're choosing to have a conversation to say that about LeBron James.

  • I know we're in the media.

  • I know we have to do our jobs and their topics that come up.

  • You know, we have to discuss things of that sort.

  • But I truly feel it's so disrespectful to LeBron James, the guy who just won his fourth world championship on his third different team to all of a sudden, then go down and say, This is why LeBron will never, ever be there.

  • Why can't we just praise LeBron for a little bit?

  • How come we can't just say you did a hell of a job throughout the midst of a pandemic and in a bubble with Anthony Davis regards of wherever they had to beat, they still went out like he would say and beat the teams they're supposed to beat.

  • I just feel like we constantly get lost in this battle of dissecting art all the time and who is the best and who is the greatest of all time and will never be my number one.

  • Well, so what?

  • For a lot of other people, he's gonna be other people's number once Let's just sit there and applaud him for a least a little bit at least more than 23 days before we start dismantling him, saying that he's never going to be the greatest and making him feel less than appreciating his greatness.

  • That's all I'm saying.

  • I don't know that he feels less.

  • I'm not saying that he feels us.

  • I'm just saying before we start spewing out, we came in like there's no at least could there be some boundary time key?

  • Can it be like a week before we start going?

  • Thio?

  • Yeah, You said this is the business, right, man.

  • It's the business this man is.

  • He can't erase the six that defeats, But Jordan Jordan can't add the other four to his resume either at getting to the championship because he didn't get there.

  • LeBron got there 10 times, Man, I don't care what nobody say Got there 10 times you got there 10 times.

  • This is an age debate.

  • You said it before the show.

  • This is simply an age debate.

  • If you are of Stephen A Zaid or frankly, don't be talking about me.

  • So the four and six record e 32 of those losses were against Katie Klay Thompson and Steph Curry.

  • I've heard Stephen A.

  • Smith say the best backcourt to ever play the game, but I don't care about Kevin Durant.

  • Wait, wait.

  • Kevin Durant, the most prolific score at 7 ft I have ever seen, played a game there.

  • Two of those losses.

  • The third loss came without Kyrie and Kevin Love, who both got hurt.

  • We both got hurt.

  • 2015 finals?

  • Yes.

  • So it's like, Are we not going to give the reasoning into this?

  • And I know Jordan was six, you know, in the Finals.

  • But man before that from his rookie year until 1919 1989 90 there were 24 29 in the playoffs like that's not good, but we only talk about six.

  • And no, we don't talk about all the things he led.

  • I'm not even getting into that.

  • All I'm saying is provide context now, toe how you lost.

  • I'm still saying the Golden State Warriors team they lost to two times.

  • It was the greatest team ever assembled, scoring wise.

  • Never seen a team like that before in my life.

  • I don't think a lot of basket people, even if you're savant go back history.

  • We've never seen a team like that key, I would just say from a football corollary.

  • There's something about it.

  • I'm not justifying A J, but there's something about being unblemished 606 finals MVPs.

  • You could say whatever you want about Joe Montana.

  • The fact that he's foreign owned the Super Bowl, even though Brady's lost some, never threw a pick in a Super Bowl.

  • There's just something about that perfection, even though he hadn't get there 10 times.

  • There's something about that perfection that resonates with perfection is is.

  • It is what it is, right that that you want perfection if you can get it.

  • LeBron been two championship tin times.

  • I'm a Michael Jordan fan.
