Julius Erving aka ‘DR. J’ Says He Would Not Build An NBA Team Around Carmelo Anthony (Video)

NBA Hall Of Famer & former Philadelphia 76er Julius Erving stopped by ESPN2’s program ‘SPORTSNATION’ to talk basketball. When the topic of Carmelo Anthony & the NY Knicks came up, Dr. J didn’t pull any punches as to what’s wrong with the franchise.  I’ve said it many times before that “Dr. J” was Michael Jordan BEFORE ‘Air Jordan’ but ‘Dr. J’ didn’t always have the help he needed to win multiple championships. Michael Jordan is viewed by many people as the greatest to ever play the game, but it took Phil Jackson to convince him to slow down from being an aggressive scorer early in MJ’s career so that the Bulls could properly build around him. When asked if Carmelo Anthony is the right guy to build around in order for the Knicks to win one or more championships, Dr. J kept it honest that he didn’t have faith in Melo being the right guy.  I believe Lebron James is the greatest to ever play the game & he’s not even done yet, but the kid from Akron recognized early that he needed the proper pieces around him to solidify multiple championships in efforts to silence the critics & cement himself in the G.O.A.T. argument.

Kendrick Lamar Performs on ESPN’s SportsNation (Video)

I was watching ESPN’s SportsNation hosted by Marcellus “DatDude” Wiley and Charissa Thompson as it aired live yesterday & their guests were 49ers starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick & Kendrick Lamar for SportsNation’s Madden Cover Vote kickoff special. When Kendrick was first introduced the music started to cue up for hit popular song “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” I chuckled because I knew there was no way in hell ESPN would allow him to get away with that so of course he did the self-edits & segued into “Girl Don’t Kill My Vibe”. Fortunately for Kendrick the audience didn’t sing the REAL chorus to the song which would have drove ESPN’s censors mad. Kendrick also performed his hit record ‘Poetic Justice’ for the SportsNation audience as well so check out both videos above & below….
