Dwayne Wade: Lebron is on "par", but is way behind MJ as the "Greatest NBA Player Ever"

 

With the constant rigourous debating of who is the greatest player of all-time, Dwayne Wade has no problem answering that question.

"I don't know if (James) has the ability to surpass (Jordan) or not," Wade told ESPNChicago.com on Thursday. "That's yet to be seen. My version as LeBron being on par with Michael is this" They're both on the golf course. Michael's on the 18th hole. LeBron is somewhere on like the fourth hole. He's got a long way to go, but he's on par to get to the 18th hole.

The 18th hole is a long way to go from the 4th hole, so LeBron's partner in crime essentially believes that it will be extremely hard for LeBron to surpass Michael Jordan as the greatest player of all time. Regardless of the critics and fans, the teammates probably have the best grasp and take on this issue, and one of the best criteria to base the issue off of, Dwayne Wade, believes he has a long way to go.

Philadelphia Eagles News: Michael Vick Will Play In Only 11 Games This Season

Philadelphia Eagles News: Michael Vick Will Play In Only 11 Games This Season

Each time Michael Vick takes a bad hit, equivalents to each time he will miss a snap. Vick is no longer the Vick that we used to see when he was with the Falcons. Skill wise, yes; but health wise, not so much.

Vick will sit out the remainder of the pre-season with bruised ribs. This is not the first time he has had this type of injury. Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles strongly believe that Vick will be ready for Week 1, and he very much may be so, but he won't be 100% healthy.

Vick is probably the most elusive quarterback the game has ever seen. He runs, and jukes, and spins, and he is a weapon as soon as he crosses the line of scrimmage, but by having the gift to be able to do that, comes a great risk. Vick doesn't wear a flap jacket, the protective vest that quarterbacks usually wear to protect themselves from hits such as the ones that Vick suffers from. This is the main reason why Vick is inactive a lot of the times, and is the reason why a majority of his injuries are "bruised ribs."

Solving The New York Jets Quarterback Controversy: By Benching Tim Tebow And Mark Sanchez For Greg McElroy

Solving The New York Jets Quarterback Controversy: By Benching Tim Tebow And Mark Sanchez For Greg McElroy

After an emphatic romp by the Giants, it is clear that the New York Jets are in no way shape or form ready to start their regular season in a few weeks. They have a lot of work to do, on both ends of the ball, as evident through both preseason scores, (Bengals - 17-6; Giants - 26-3). Even though this is preseason, it still does mean a lot, and is a pretty good test to see if a team is ready to start their season. It also tells you how bad your third stringers are compared to other teams, in which case, Jets backups can't be compared to the others in the NFL. 

Seattle Seahawks News: Signing Terrell Owens Screams Desperation By The Front Office And Coaching Staff

Seattle Seahawks News: Signing Terrell Owens Screams Desperation By The Front Office And Coaching Staff

Terrell Owens was one of the best receivers the NFL has ever seen, in his prime.

The 38-year-old signed the veteran-minimum contract to suit up for the Seattle Seahawks this upcoming season, a team that is desperately trying to find its identity. They already have a competitive quarterback battle in Matt Flynn and Russell Wilson, and haven't had a solid quarterback since Matt Hasselback, but they believe Owens is the missing piece to the puzzle. They can't be serious though.

What's more shocking is the fact that Owens settled for the veteran's minimum. It's not like he was going to do any better in any other uniform, it's just that I'm surprised his ego would stoop that far down from previous years. This indicates signs that he may be maturing, and getting away from his alter-ego that owned media coverage for a decade. That is impressive, but definitely not enough to have him as your No. 1 receiver.

London Olympics 2012: American Judo Fighter Nick Delpopolo's Arrest and Disqualification Because Of Illegal Drug Use Proves American Stereotypes

on August 09 2012 8:01 PM

Unfortunately, we weren't able to make it through the Olympics without an athlete out of the 10,500 to participate in the Olympics to be arrested and disqualified from competition, and go figure, it was an American.

American Judo fighter Nick Delpopolo was arrested on Monday for doping, and was expelled from competing in the remainder of the Olympics. Delpopolo insisted that he unintentionally ate baked goods before the games that were baked with Marijuana. Delpopolo is the first out of the 10,500 athletes to fail an in-competition testing. There were four other athletes caught testing positive before the games had been started, but Delpopolo is the only to have tested positive in-competition.

The International Olympic Committee stripped his accreditation immediately, and has asked the International Judo Federation to change the standings in Delpopolo's event. They have also requested that the judo's governing body consider any further action in the consequences for Delpopolo.
