Sigh. What the hell is wrong with people? On Mothers Day I was launching m-fers left and right at my TV toward LeBron James as his buzzer beater beat the Chicago Bulls in game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. There are very few players I hate more than James, but seriously why are people so damn stupid?
A recent poll by Public Policy Polling has released results from a new survey focused on sports and one of the results show that right now, the year 2015, 34 percent of the people polled believe in a game of 1-on-1, Michael Jordan would beat LeBron James.
In fact despite his being 52 years old, 34% of NBA fans think Jordan could beat James one on one now– as in the year 2015- to just 54% who think James would win despite being in the prime of his career.
Before you start with your bitching about “get off LeBron’s nuts” I’m a Bulls fan. I think Michael Jordan is the best basketball player to ever play in the NBA. I don’t think there will ever be a player with as much drive and determination as MJ had, but he’s 52-years-old. Who in their right mind actually believes, James, who is in the prime of his career, would lose to MJ right now?
Somehow, only 54 percent think LeBron would beat Michael. I’m not going to breakdown their careers and compare their accomplishments. That’s not what this story is about. This is about 1/3 of Americans thinking a 52-year-old retired player can beat the best player in the NBA right now.
Again, what the fuck? Either those 34 percent of people are the dumbest people in America, or they all just trolled this poll.
