My nomination goes to JA Adande (no surprises as he says ridiculous things on a regular basis). But the below statement is the typical nonsense sports writers or commentators say because they have to smarter than someone who accepts the obvious.
In a discussion of who's better between Kobe Bryant or LeBron James, he claims that he'd rather Kobe Bryant with the ball in a "must score" possession than anyone in the history of the game, including Michael Jordan. Here's his rationale:
"If the play breaks down, Bryant has the resourcefulness and athletic ability to create his own shot. And he's the best tough-shot shooter in the game. Ever. "
Uh, like Mike didn't have the "resourcefulnees" to improvise? Or the athletic ability to create his own shot? Did he sleep during the Michael Jordan, o is he another one of these guys who grew up a Knicks fan and so hates Michael Jordan more than any other athlete (yes, I have Knicks fans and they LOATHE MJ).
Not only this, but would he seriously select Kobe over Larry Bird or Magic Johnson?
