Mike Breen: "Kobe and Lebron could be 1st Team All Def

Postby UKUGA on Wed Aug 20, 2008 6:16 am

With about 4:00 to go in the 3rd quarter against Australia, Breen comes through with this gem.


Does he not know now anything about the NBA games he watches/commentates?


How many times has Kobe been 1st team all-defense?

he probably meant to say lebron could be first team all universe because hes the best physical specimen to ever set foot on a basketball court and hes single-handedly carrying team usa to the gold medal podium on his giant shoulders and athletic frame while playing all 5 positions for the team at the same time

I know what you mean... It's getting "a little" bit out of hand... Someone makes a good play Mike Breen doesnt give them any props. Lebron makes a lay up and him and Doug Collins start screaming and going crazy. :disagree:

To be honest, he may very well be the best physical specimen to ever set foot on a basketball court. Can you name a better one? I'm not like attacking the sarcastic validity of your post BTW :mhihi: . I'm just saying that the physical specimen part is probably accurate.

To be honest, I go crazy too whenever LeBron does something...

He is simply SPECTECULAR!...more spectecular than any NBA player but maybe Kobe Bryant if he is in the zone...

but even if LeBron makes a layup...usually its spectecular. He is a freak of nature...no doubt about it.

i know hes a beast but i dont have to hear about it every 30 seconds. same thing with "wade was finals mvp and he feels like hes being snubbed when hes no longer in the talks about elite players in todays game."

LMAO. Lebron is good at using his physical freakishness to come from the weakside and make a spectacular block or steal but he's a poor on the ball defender.
Kobe Byant has brought the Lakers three championships, 4 Finals in 5 years, carried an absolutely pathetic team to the playoffs in the loaded Western Conference twice and almost upset the so-called MVP, and has given us countless thrills and memories. If you are not a Kobe fan, then you are not a Laker fan, period.

I talked to Lebron before the game and when he throws a bad pass or misses an easy lay up, he's the hardest one on himself, this is just a relentless worker on both ends of the court, he expects perfection from himself and demands it from his teammates.

Kobe IS already first team defender and LeBron will never make it because there are better defensive forwards out there. LeBron has improved a lot and is an above average defender but he isn't as good as Marion, Battier, KG, Duncan....

If anything he should have said "Kobe and Wade" ... James' man-to-man defense was inconsistent at best throughout the tournament.

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

Rayt on man!

He's not a good 1on1 defender and is easily burned in a pick and roll play.

are you sure those numbers are right?

http://www.sportingnews.com/archives/wilt/article3.html
this article says his vertical was 24 inch (which is what should be expected)

46 sounds like bogus...thats more than Vince Carter can jump :man4:

but I know where you are coming from...in his wiki page there is a quote of him saying "my sergeant vertical was higher than MJ; 46'-48'.

^ Seriously. I don't believe for a second that Wilt had a 46inch vertical.

Your considered a pretty good athlete if you can jump 38-42 inches. Wilt was a GREAT athlete. 46 inches doesn't surprise me one bit.

if 42" is a very good athlete...then guys like Josh Smith, Andre Iguodala, Kobe Bryant, Desmond Mason, Jason Richardson...are all just very good athletes...

come on....any vertical that goes beyond 36' is pretty impressive.

Bynum has a 34' vertical which is already MASSIVE for a bigman...I do think that Wilt could have a better vertical...probably 38' or something but 46' for a 7-2 guy is insane.
