LeBron's doing the one thing I've always said Michael Jordan never did: never rested. Michael Jordan did it when it was tough, really tough.
Rodman recently sounded off on LeBron James, specifically, when appearing on CBS Sports' Reiter Than You. James surpassed Jordan as the highest-paid player in a single season after signing a $100 million deal, Rolling Stone reported. He played every game. "The league needs, and that's why he's doing all this insane s- now, like b--ing and complaining and all this [crap]", Rodman said.
Rodman said Jordan's offensive feats - leading the league in scoring 10 consecutive seasons - were also much more hard than today, because of the physicality of the league.
NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman's criticism earlier this week of Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James taking games off in order to rest caught the attention of one of Rodman's former Chicago Bulls teammates: current Golden State head coach Steve Kerr. Meanwhile, LeBron James has never played all 82 games this season and missed six of the Cavalier's 78 games this season.
Do you agree with Dennis Rodman's comment? Lead the league in scoring 10 years in a row.
According to the report, Michael Jordan played the full slate nine times in his National Basketball Association career. "That was hard back then, now it's easy". Average like 32 points a game. 'I gotta go back in the gym.' He got tough. All these [expletive] triple-doubles. back then when he was getting his ass whooped, I mean beat down every game. "And he got tough". But part of the problem is that we are stuck in the present, and numerous people that played the game back then are firmly rooted in the past. At one point, he spoke up about the propriety of National Basketball Association players taking nights off during the season, since opining on that subject is apparently mandatory for all former players these days.
