Hating on LeBron James

Listening to the new Eminem cd, which is actually very good, I realized that Eminem is more competitive than LeBron James. Here’s the proof, a line from one of his songs;

“To spaz with the pen, I’m a little bit sicker than most
Shit’s finna get thick again
They say the competition is stiff
But I get a hard dick from this shit, now stick it in
I ain’t never giving in again
Caution to the wind, complete freedom
Look at these rappers, how I treat ’em
So why the fuck would I join them when I beat ’em”

So basically, Lebron’s train of thought is “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em”, while Eminem has struggled through 3 or 4 self-proclaimed-as-not-good albums and worked hard to become good again at what he does, by himself, leading his own way.

So after this new album by Eminem, we know that he is one of the best rappers ever. People thought that his first 3 albums were only successful because they were controversial, and that he was only talented because he was on drugs. Then he let out 3 laughable albums and everyone said it was because he was no longer on drugs. Now he refocuses and puts out a great album, using a few prominent rappers (Lil Wayne, Rihanna, etc) in featured roles and proves that he is genuinely talented. If he were more like LeBron, he would have called up Jay-Z or Kanye West and offered to play a major role on one of their albums.

I am never a fan of comparing current sports stars to past greats, but if there was ever going to be a present day equivalent to Michael Jordan, LeBron is entirely out of the question. Scottie Pippen, maybe. Nothing wrong with Scottie Pippen, but as a sports fan, it’s just disappointing to watch a superstar bitch out and team up with his rivals and not get to watch one of the potentially greatest players ever be just that.
