The NBA world has seen its fair share of hot takes and opinions on players from the media and even the NBA fandom. It has always been a gray line where everyone has a strong opinion because they think they’re entitled to one. Recently Draymond Green sat down on a podcast with an NBA veteran to discuss the ever-changing media world in the game of basketball. The conversation became engaging as the former NBA star articulately mentioned the different ways words are perceived throughout the fandom and how media has evolved over the years. To further explain his argument, the guest gave an appropriate example where he compared Michael Jackson’s impact on the community to that of LeBron James.
“It’s almost like this, Michael Jackson wasn’t the first person to do the Moonwalk, he popularized it,” said the 50-year-old NBA veteran. Incidentally, Rose is well-known for creating life-changing opportunities for underserved youth across the country. But he made it very clear, that LeBron James’ school project getting more ‘hype’ or popularity than his work doesn’t bother him at all. In fact, that’s quite natural considering LeBron’s international popularity. Contrary to fans’ belief, Rose actually wants everyone to win.
Green agreed to the opinions presented by Rose while he moved on to other aspects of the former Raptors star’s life.
