by AFM Dear Answers From Men, Can you settle a bet for me? I say that if Lebron wins 2 or more championships with the Heat, all the vitriol from The Decision and his Cleveland departure will be forgotten, and he can still be considered the GOAT. My buddy says that his legacy is forever tainted no matter what. Who’s right?
George, LeBron could win 8 championships and would still not be considered the greatest of all-time. LeBron committed an unforgivable sin against his legacy when he left his team to chase after rings. No player that was considered to be the best in the league has ever left his team solely to join other established superstars and win championships; players that were considered the best at their position haven’t even done that. It is an honorable decision to leave his pride behind in Cleveland and win in Miami, but it does tarnish the public opinion of his place in history. My problem is not with LeBron though, but with the retired superstars that now ostracize him. Michael Jordan, though correct about the legacy of LeBron, has become a bitter, old man who only commented because he knew LeBron was a threat to his own legacy. And, Charles Barkley was completely hypocritical because he did the same thing by joining the Rockets late in his career. George, being the greatest player of all-time is not only about winning, it is also about how you win. If LeBron was the best player in the NBA, then good players would have come to Cleveland to join him, like they have with Kobe in L.A. Sorry, your buddy is right.
Dear Answers From Men,
I just met a lady 2 weeks ago, and she’s really cool. We’ve already gone on a few dates, and everything is clicking. Yesterday she didn’t technically invite me to her house for Thanksgiving, but she kinda did. She said, “If you’d like to come by on Thanksgiving you’re more than welcome. I have a really big family and people are coming and going all day long.” Uh, what in the world should I do?
Dear Answers From Men,
I think I have a crush on one of my buddy’s girlfriends. She and I have really good chemistry, and I actually think the two of us have more in common than do she and my buddy. I realize that me even thinking about all of that is breaking the man code. Please advise!!!
