Carmelo Anthony considers the Michael Jordan-LeBron James GOAT debate



Carmelo Anthony considers the Michael Jordan-LeBron James GOAT debate

Carmelo Anthony is uncomfortable with the question, but he admits there is only one GOAT basketball – Michael Jordan.

Used New York Goodies – who spoke with CBS Sports on Thursday about his thoughts on the documentary film “The Last Dance” which consists of 10 parts that ended a few weeks ago – reluctant to choose between Jordan and his best friend LeBron James, but still supporting “His Airness.”

“You know, M.J. is GOAT. He is the greatest ever, “said Anthony, who is now with the Portland Trail Blazers.” We all know that and we all agree to it. Why can’t we say that, but also give LeBron the interest while he is here too?

“Why can’t we say,” M.J. very great, LeBron is great, Kobe is great. ‘We are not allowed to say these things today, because it is always this or that, and that is only our society – you have to choose one. “

Anthony – who has developed a relationship with Jordan since signing a contract with Jordan Brand in 2003 and has known and played with James since middle school – has good knowledge of the dynamic duo, but says it is difficult to compare the two because they are “the same two players completely different. ”

Anthony, 36, also said the GOAT debate prevented fans from having deeper excitement from the game.

“I don’t like it,” he said. “And I say that because every time we do that, we fail to appreciate what we have in front of us. Whenever this comparison is made, is it anyone – old school versus new school – it seems, why can’t we appreciate everyone for what they bring to the game? “

Anthony also told CBS Sports that the documentary “The Last Dance” put a human face on Michael Jordan and demystified his career, especially for the younger generation.

“I think it’s shocking to people because they never know who he is as a person – they never know what kind of person he is. Everything is fair, ‘M.J. big. M. J. GOAT. God of Basketball. Black Jesus. Black cat. “That’s what they know,” Anthony said, “But they don’t know who he is. It’s just a myth. He is a mythical person, like a mythical creature.

“Nobody understands who he is or what he is. I think seeing him is like opening the lid and having the opportunity to just tell his story and people can hear his desires – what he likes, what he does not, and how he operates in his days, mentality. Most people like it. Some people are very surprised. And then there are people who hate it, because many times people hate the truth. “

Anthony, who has faced strong criticism several times throughout his career, said he could deal with Jordan who is sometimes misunderstood or portrayed negatively. But unlike Jordan, Anthony has not used insult as a direct motivation to prove his critics wrong.

“It’s about home, but then you also understand that in the end, there is nothing you can do if someone wants to make a negative narrative about you there,” Anthony said. “There’s nothing you can do, so what I’ve learned over the years is, whatever will happen will happen. Whatever people say, people will say. Don’t give them anything to talk about. You do your job and work hard “If you know you put everything into it, whatever others say doesn’t even matter to you.”

Speaking of criticism, one person in the NBA recently told Marc Berman of The Post that Anthony could become the Knicks’ Michael Jordan, but failed.

Charley Rosen, biographer / creditor of Phil Jackson and former assistant Albany Patroons, said if Anthony had embraced a triangle like Jordan finally, he and Jackson would find success together with the Knicks.

“Carmelo weakened it, said [Kristaps] Porzingis said nothing in public about how good the triangle was, “Rosen said.” Carmelo refused to run the triangle – which is why Phil signed it again: There was a lot of pressure from [owner James] Dolan But if Carmelo will run the triangle, he will open on the lower side.

“He had to pass and do this and run, but he finally had the whole side wide open – 16-17 feet from the basket. The defense would be too far to duplicate. He had an open jump shot and one or two dribbles from the basket. He became killer. He will be Michael Jordan. He is unstoppable. But Melo catches and shoots and doesn’t want to do anything else. “

In the last round of Portugal x Morocco was the decisive Cristiano Ronaldo and the Portuguese a la Gordon Banks.



In the last round of Portugal x Morocco was the decisive Cristiano Ronaldo and the Portuguese a la Gordon Banks.

Portugal and Morocco met in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup, and the Europeans won 1-0.

Portugal and Morocco will meet this Saturday (10) in the quarterfinals world Cup from Qatar. The last meeting between the two teams was in 2018, in the group stage of the World Cup held in Russia, and the Portuguese had the star of Cristiano Ronaldo and a brilliant performance by Rui Patricio to win the confrontation 1-0.

After scoring a hat-trick on his debut against Spain in 2018, CR7 went on a good phase and took four minutes to put the Portuguese team ahead against Atlas Lions. Four years later, the script changed for the Portuguese star, who was no longer unanimous in Portugal and lost the title to Gonçal Ramos, who scored a hat-trick against Switzerland.

Another notable figure for Portugal against Morocco in 2018 was goalkeeper Rui Patricio. The Africans dominated the match and had 15 submissions. In the 12th minute of the first half, the goalkeeper saved a header from Belanda in a move similar to Gordon Banks’ “save of the century” against Pelé in the 1970 World Cup.

In Qatar, Rui Patricio came on as a substitute and “passed the baton” to Diogo Costa, the 23-year-old who failed his debut but was an important figure in the Portuguese team’s campaign in the competition.

Frenchman Hervé Renard managed Morocco in Russia, a sensational manager in Qatar who managed to get Saudi Arabia to beat Argentina with one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history.

The winner of Portugal and Morocco will play either France or England in the semi-finals of the World Cup. The Portuguese have not been in the top four teams since the 2006 World Cup in Germany. On the other hand, the Atlas Lions want to be the first African team to reach the semi-finals of the Cup.

The City Council of Santo Tirso today returned to Desportivo das Aves the Portuguese Football Cup trophy won in the 2017/2018 season, which the municipality bought at an auction two months ago for 30,000 euros.

“This was an injustice that our own justice wanted to bring up for discussion, but it needs to be reconsidered. It is disgusting that there are legal aspects that prevent the title from passing into the hands of others when it has been very well won on the field. The city council did only what it was responsible for, which is to keep the heritage of the population, the club and the land in the right place, ”Mayor Alberto Costa repeated to reporters.

The handover of the scepter took place on the full lawn of the CD Aves stadium, in Vila das Aves, between the winning reception of Desportivo das Aves 1930 in favor of Rio de Moinhos (3-1), in the 13th round of the 4th Series of the Football Association Division of Honor Porto.

“The City Council of Santo Tirso did this out of respect for those who were on the field, after a week when it seemed that Desportivo das Aves did not exist. I returned to what I did in good conscience as mayor. We took care of the formal aspects so that what happened would not happen again, ”admitted Alberto Costa.

The ceremony was attended by the footballers, technicians and other staff involved in winning the Portuguese Cup, whose scepter was carried by the then goalkeeper and “captain” Kim and striker Alexandre Guedes on the pitch to be symbolically handed over by the mayor to the newly appointed sworn-in president of the Vila das Aves club, Pedro Pereira.

“Feeling is what you felt in the stadium. There was gratitude for the most important achievement in our history, which also marked the beginning of the renaissance that we are striving for, in order for the club to return to the heights that it has reached in the past. The Portuguese Cup is well placed. The legal departments have tried to ensure that this is not going anywhere,” said successor António Freitas.

The auction was held by the Judicial Court of Comarca Porto and ended exactly two months ago, setting a minimum threshold of 1360 euros, set at an initial price of 800 euros and a base price of 1600 euros. trophy.

The greatest achievement of Desportivo das Aves was arrested by the SAD in July 2020 when the Chinese-led administration Wei Zhao failed to fulfill the licensing requirements in the professional competition of the 2020/21 season with the Clubs League and rejected an appeal to the Council of the Referee of the Portuguese Football Federation.

The Nordics had already been relegated to the II League, but “fell” by administrative means in the Campeonato de Portugal, then in the third national level due to wage arrears and unilateral layoffs of players, technical staff and employees.

SAD, which also witnessed the confiscation of two Desportivo das Aves buses, decided to withdraw from the Portuguese Championship in September 2020, five months before the Santo Tirso District Judicial Court declared it insolvent.

Almost €37,500 debts from SAD to three foreign clubs resulted in FIFA preventing the club from signing new players since August 2020, but two months later, António Freitas’ management decided to recreate the futsal and football sections that began to represent the new club. called Desportivo das Aves 1930.
