What Do You Really Get For LeBron James?

The entire basketball community, and possibly the entire world is yet, again, held hostage, waiting for LeBron James to make his Decision.

If you watch ESPN, you would think there were no other sports going on, let alone any other sports worth reporting. Sorry World Cup 2014. Each day we get a different break down how King James could end up with a bunch of different teams. Let’s be honest, it’s a 2 dog race.

Cleveland vs. Miami.

However, every team in the NBA is trying to figure out, and calculate, how they could offer King James an absurd amount of money. But hey, he’s the best basketball player on the planet. Besides all of the ‘on-the-court’ skills he brings you, besides all of the wins you will get, and besides him delivering on 2 out of 4 championships, you get more. Owners realize once they sign LeBron James, their team immediately becomes relevant. And, one cannot put a price tag on being relevant.

Having Lebron James on your team immediately increases your ticket sales, merchandise sales, and concession revenues. However, it also gets your team more prime time games. As of now, Cleveland is a fun team to watch. Kyrie Irving is ridiculous, but I’m not getting excited about a Cleveland Cavilers game. However, if you add Lebron James to their roster, I am willing to bet there will be a get Cleveland vs. Miami Christmas day game, and I would be excited to watch this game. The amount of prime time games for a team with LeBron James will increase. Again, you can not place a price tag on relevance.

He can do anything right? He has played all 5 positions on the basketball court. Hell, people have said he would make an All-World wide receiver in the NFL. I’m sure he would dominate Beach Volleyball as well. This got me thinking, “What can’t LeBron do?” To help me figure this out, I decided to put King James up against a formidable opponent in any and everything. I will challenge the entire population of India, vs Lebron James. India has the second largest population of any country in the world, just behind China (Come on, I had to make it fair for LeBron).

The First Challenge:

Lebron James, absolutely, without a doubt.

King James would use the quickness and agility of a Gazelle, strength of a Rhinoceros, speed and power of a Cheetah. He would quickly snatch up the dog without ruffling it’s fur like a Grizzle Bear saving it’s own cub. He would then fly out of the burning structure, and I mean literally flying, like a Bald Eagle, but only right after white doves flew into the sky, and right as Red, White, and Blue fireworks bath the entire rescue scene. God Bless America! God Bless LeBron James!

That is why I would choose LeBron James over the Entire Population of India. Because that’s they type of stuff King James does. He does not just save puppies. He does not just play basketball and win. He makes your team relevant, and there is no price tag on relevance, right? So open up your check books owners, because I am sure he will be worth every single penny you scratch up to pay.

    His quickness will save the puppy and his smile will catch the media.

    “speed and power of a cheetah”?

    Cheetahs are by far the fastest land mammal, capable of top speed over 70mph and 0-60 in 3 seconds.

    That speed comes at a price, power. To obtain that speed, the cheetah is lithe and lean. It is by far the least powerful of the big cats.

    In terms of raw power the ranks would be:

    Tiger
    Lion
    Jaguar
    Leopard
    Cheetah

    Pound for pound, the Jaguar would move to the top.

    Excuse the nitpick, I agree with your point just a big cat geek.

      Thank you for the wonderful insight into big cats, or Felidae, including both subfamilies, Pantherinae and Felinae. And thank you for participating in our website. I hope you will become a regular member, and I look forward to regular comments to our posts.

      I am the first to admit my knowledge in big cats is small, so I am sorry for my errors in my use of my analogies. However, I do believe Power, has a direct correlation to “the speed in which work is done,” so if cheetahs are in fact the fastest land mammal, they will have have more power, then a similarly sized creature that is moving slower. But, then again, I’m no physics teacher.

      I do appreciate the fact you hold this website responsible for our typed words, and thank you for your enlightening comment.

      Since we have your attention, I was hoping we could learn from your expertise on big cats. I noticed you left out Pumas/ cougars from your list of “raw power ranks” and was curious where they would stand. Also, and this is more of a hypothetical, but where would you rank, and hypothetically of course, the Great Saber-Tooth Tiger, and Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky on this list?

      Thank you again for posting a comment, and sharing your knowledge. I look forward to learning more about big cats.

      Cheers and, as always, enjoy Sports Responsibly
