Lebron James

Oh my God can this guy play ball. I am envious of all those in the USA right now because they can watch these games live. James gets my vote as best living athlete right now. He is the whole fucking team.

If we sent this guy to Iraq he would win the war in like 5 seconds. He will be president one day... okay maybe not.

Tommy, aren't you living in Ohio right now? How do the people feel about Lebron? I've always thought of Ohio as a wasteland but I guess they do have Lebron James and that's gotta count for something.

funnily enough I saw the game against Detroit by default last night. I went to the pub to watch the Reds (I had a couple of fellas over to watch the european cup final in the afternoon and we decided to stick with the beer and sports thing) The pub had the Reds on, but sadly they were concentrating on extending their four game losing streak, so I started to watch the basketball.

I'm sure you know all about the woes of the NBA. White folk and their money are being turned off by the "thugged out" NBA. The league wants a new Bird, Magic or Michael to spark interest again. I'm told that Lebron might do it. As for Ohio, well I can think of worse places to be. Like NYC or London if you are poor. Or a deserted carribean island if you need medical attention. For now, in my situation, Cincinnati is a good fit. Don't get me wrong though I still dream of Seattle.

On the daily show a while back they were interviewing some politician from Ohio and they asked him something like.... Of all the human beings to set foot on the moon almost half were from Ohio, what is about that place that makes people want to get as far away as they possibly can?

Also you mean "best competing athlete" not "best living athlete". Pele and Alex Murphy are stil alive.

Google Alex Murphy. As I boringly remind anybody who will listen, we are related. His dad is my great uncle.
