lebron james quotes

As we know, women have to break down many barriers on the road to success. One of those barriers is the way we are constantly reminded we are not men, as if it is a flaw. People call me one of the “world’s greatest female athletes”. Do they say LeBron is one of the world’s best male athletes? Is Tiger? Federer? Why not? They are certainly not female. We should never let this go unchallenged. We should always be judged by our achievements, not by our gender.
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
—  Michael Jordan
If you ever believe you are playing shit, push it out your mind because you can always bounce back and prove yourself wrong. Don’t get stuck in that mind set, just enjoy it and try your best because that’s all you can ever do
—  My dad 

Could we see a Banana Boat reunion in New York?

With Chris Paul opting in to his contract to get traded to the Houston Rockets to play with James Harden he will be a free agent next season.

This means, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and CP3 are all free agents in the Summer of 2018.

Per Reports, both Melo and LeBron have said they would take pay cuts to play together.

“I really hope that, before our career is over, we can all play together.

At least one, maybe one or two seasons, me, Melo, DWade, CP3, we can get a year in. I would actually take a pay cut to do that.

Maybe at the end of their careers, James said. Maybe sooner. One more ring chase, this time with everyone on board. It would be pretty cool.“ - LeBron James

"It’s always a dream, they’re all in the same boat I’m in.” - Carmelo Anthony

“Anything’s possible, definitely, anything’s possible.” - CP3

Wade, LeBron, CP3, Kristaps Porzingis and Melo. Might be an older squad, but they got a unicorn.

How is that for a superteam?

I always think back to the Jay-Z line, ‘If I shoot you I’m brainless, if you shoot me you’re famous, what am I to do?’ That always plays in my head anytime I feel like I want to react; I feel like I gotta keep my brain.
—  LeBron James, quoting Hov’s ‘Streets is Watching’ to the media on why he tries to avoid retaliating to being thrown down or borderline dirty plays, after the Cleveland Cavaliers lost Game 3 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals series to the Toronto Raptors tonight in Canada.

Father John Misty - The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apartment

Father John Misty has shared the video for “The Night Josh Tillman Came to Our Apartment”, off this year’s excellent I Love You, Honeybear. It’s a surreal romance that sees a suave Josh Tillman approaching a bummed-out version of himself at a bar. They hit it off and proceed to snort cocaine, go swimming, and, finally, hook up.

In a statement, Tillman said, “This video is partially inspired by the LeBron James quote ‘It is precisely the superficial differences between people who are otherwise alike that inform the hostilities between them.’ Special thanks to my body double Tyler who I had to kiss no fewer than two dozen times and whose breath I can still smell in my mind’s eye.”

Pearce said, “It has been an honor to explore the palpable sexual chemistry that exists between Josh Tillman and himself. I hope this video does their enduring love affair justice.”

“I watch Jordan more than anybody for sure,But I’ll watch tapes of A.I., too. I don’t take anything from A.I.. Well, I do – his will. They say he was 6 feet, but A.I. was like 5-10½. Do we even want to say 160? 170 pounds? Do we even want to give him that much weight? And he played like a 6-8 2-guard. He was one of the greatest finishers we’ve ever seen. You could never question his heart. Ever. He gave it his all. A.I. was like my second-favorite player growing up, after MJ.”
