He has won all NBA, 1st team two times. Some people say James Harden should win MVP because he has the most assists in the league. Russel should win because he has had an outstanding, record breaking season. The MVP award should got to Russell Westbrook this season. Although he has many awards he does not have the MVP award.
In 2001, Michael Jordan came back from retirement to finish two more seasons, which were subpar to his standards, only averaging 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists per game. Kobe Bryant, going into his 20th year in the NBA for the 2015-2016 season, is listed in the top 20 for all time games played, and will be in the top 5 for most seasons played after this season. Although he has faced many injuries throughout his career, like having achilles surgery in 2014, and tearing his rotator cuff in his shoulder in 2015, he still remains a threat in the NBA at age 37. Kobe is well known for playing through injuries, and has suffered a total of 23 of them in his whole career, while Jordan was healthy almost his entire career, only breaking his foot in 1985-86 and played 18 games that season. Playing over 35 minutes per game while being injured is not only risky, but also requires a lot of resilience to do.
But what makes Jordan superior is not only his on court success but also the success he has had off the court. Jordan has his own shoe brand (Air Jordan) and each year he earns an estimated amount of $60 million dollars(forbes.com). Jordan is also the owner of the Charlotte Hornets. His success of the the court shows his determination to stay successful and also to not go broke like many other retired NBA players or professional athletes. Kareem is not as successful as Jordan is off the court but he still has a little bit of success in his new life.
WOW! I said as i looked at Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlin’s stats. They are two of the best players to step on an NBA court. Wilt used to have the most 3 pointsers in an NBA season. Michael has only 1,000 points more points than Wilt.
It was actually the first in his career that he had 20 field goals in a single game. For what it 's worth, he also broke the record for most career games with at least ten 3-pointers, which he accomplished for the fourth time. There in lies the mystique of Stephen Curry. He does things that no one else has ever dared to imagine. There have been many great NBA players take the court and do amazing things.
The ticket prices are a lot more expensive for the NBA than the WNBA. For example, the tickets for the New York Liberty in the lower part of section 109, in Madison Square Garden, are $69 each. However, it is $238 per ticket on Stub Hub to watch the New York Knicks. NBA tickets are in a higher demand because more people want to watch, therefore, the tickets are more expensive and the NBA makes a larger profit. This is a major struggle in the WNBA because not many people watch the games, and many believe watching the WNBA is “boring”.
Absolutely.”Lonzo Ball the son of the outspoken father, Lavar Ball, is a Laker rookie from UCLA. LeBron James is a 14 time all star, 4 time MVP, and 3 time champion, currently playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Although some may think that Lebron James is the best basketball player of all time, Lonzo Ball is a better player because he broke Lebron’s record for youngest triple-double in NBA history, he got his signature shoe at an earlier stage in his career, and his rookie year stats are better. LeBron recorded a triple double
Shaq signed with reebok because they were offering him the most money and they wanted an icon like shaq to be a part of their business. In 1998 reebok released shaq because he wasn’t selling enough shoes and then in 2008 he signed with the company Li Ning. Shaq also sucks at free throws and his free throw percentage is under 500. When you have a 7 foot 1 man playing in the NBA, you’re bound to have big feet (size 22 to be exact). With the average male in the U.S. having a 10.5 shoe size, he doubles most Americans.
In most professional sports, they play in games for only a few months and then have a few months off. They do practice every day, but is that worth millions of dollars? Most athletes are getting paid ridiculous amounts for short term contracts; for example Odell Beckham Jr is getting paid 25 million dollars a year for five years, and most people are not going to even get close to 2 million dollars in their lifetime. One of the main reasons that ticket prices are so high is that the fans have to pay for the “all star” salaries. I think that the pro leagues should just start to pay their players normal salaries or at least
“The customer rather see a female serve them than a male,” said Mike Zepp, Current General Manager at Downingtown. Despite having a differentiated strategy, Buffalo Wild Wings has been struggling in recent years. Although its sales and revenue have been increasing, it has not offset its increased operational costs. In 2015, "revenue climbed 22% year over year to $455.5 million...in spite of a shift in the sports calendar versus the year-ago period, resulting in one less week of football and fewer pay-per-view events to draw in diners"
The elder Coffey played four years for Minnesota 's college basketball team, followed by one year in the NBA with the Minnesota Timberwolves. It must be noted that Amir and Richard aren 't the only two ballers in the Coffey family. Amir 's sisters, Nia (Northwestern) and Sydney (Marist), both scored over 1,000 points in their Division 1 college basketball careers. So far, Amir Coffey has followed in his father 's footsteps nicely. In fact, his freshman season looks to be better statistically than any of his dad 's college years.
He proved them wrong, the next year, season 2015/2016 he led his team in beating not only one of the best records of all time but the most records of all time. It was the bulls and his coach’s record for most wins in a single season, 73-9, beating the previous record of 72-10. Everyone knew that they were the best team in the history of the game but the question was if they could beat the Cavs again in the championship. They played though the finals and had made it back to the championship. After a long season it had finally happened, it was The Golden State Warriors vs.
In Kobe Bryant 's first three seasons, the Lakers paid him the total amount of $3.5 million, but five NBA titles and 17 all-star games later, much changed. In the game, Bryant could have taken home a total of $323 million throughout his career, that may come to an end in 2016. He sits behind only Kevin Garnett in basketball earnings. Garnett entered the league 12 months prior, and it has amassed over $331 million. In accordance with Forbes, Bryant 's endorsement deals with companies like Sprite, Nike and others have brought his total earnings to $762 million.
