How dare you
Bron had boosters giving him and his mom money and cars and other valuables since he was like 12. No reason for him to bother with hustling, he was taken care of. The NBA is the closest thing there is to a meritocracy. If anything, SC was underrated his whole life until now. Even the Warriors gave him a low-ball deal which he was forced to take because of his glass ankles. He's the most underpaid player ever.
Get the fuck out of here, no one even knew who LeBron was until he was 12, you realize that he didn't go play on some crazy good AAU team right? His travel team was him and mainly scrubs, same kids he played HS ball with, none of them amounted to anything.
Just to be clear, I'm definitely NOT saying that and I think that is a retarded argument. All I am saying is that Bron is much more physically gifted and that this was recognized at a much earlier age than with SC. Curry had to grind to make it to the top. Bron had to grind to stay on top. They BOTH have great work ethics.
My sources tell me that Lebron caught Savannah four fingers deep to a Steph Curry mix.
You didn't actually contradict what I said. We both said 12. You're just trying to be argumentative and contrarian to everything I say. Yes, Bron and his mom was taken care of at an early age because he was recognized as the messiah. His AAU team is irrelevant.
Give me proof that they were taken care of financially, since you seem to know everything about his personal life and childhood.
The real reason is Steph is just better than him in every regard. It took Nike millions of dollars and like 6 years to finally get people buying his shoes. Then Curry just walks into UA and they roll out the worst shoes possible and they outsell Lebrons signatures
Brian Windhorse started covering him his freshman year of high school. Everyone knew he was gonna be great and he already had old creepy white dudes following him everywhere
Lebron was paid more by these old bald jews at 13 than Dell Curry made his entire career.
HS is 15/16, my dude over here is talking about 12 years old.
Yea, Bron won the state championship his freshmen year, the point isn't whether everyone knew he'd be good, it's whether him and his mom were taken care of financially from the time he was 12 lol
Why are manlet Asians always so anti-Semitic?
Is that why UA's stock price has been tanking? lmao
I was already hearing about this kid back in the 90s, like 10 years before I heard of Curry. The boosters got their hooks into this kid and his mom early.
I said "like 12". Perhaps slight hyperbole on my part. He was 14 when I started hearing about him, and I'm not from anywhere near Akron. He was a national sensation. He probably started getting paid when he was around 14. 14 is still really fucking young. It would be seen as creepy as fuck if he was a girl and not a future sports star.
That article is from High School, everyone knows about that incident, it was highly publicized.
I want the proof that he's been financially taken care of since he was 12 years old.
so he was a senior when that happened not 12 like you originally said
Bryce Harper was on the cover of Sports Illustrated at the age of 15, doesn't mean he and his family were being given money by boosters.
Once again, the article you posted is from his Senior year of High School, he was 17/18, I want proof.
You also realize he was cleared after the fact of the charges in the article, right?
His mom took out a loan and insurance on him his senior year, knowing he'd be the #1 or #2 pick in the draft, and bought him a $50,000 hummer, they suspended him and forfeited 1 game, then he was allowed to play the rest of the season in route to a national title.
Either I want some fucking proof of his family being financially stable from 12-HS, or you're going to have to start doing some back tracking.
