Many of the top shoe brands in the world have been courting Williamson ever since he declared his intention to leave Duke after one season and enter the NBA draft.

The Pels earned the right to select Williamson first overall when they won the draft lottery, but Williamson was essentially a free agent on the shoe market who had the opportunity to weigh his options before making a decision.

By signing with Jordan Brand, Williamson joins an impressive group of NBA players that includes Houston Rockets guard Russell Westbrook, Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul and Miami Heat guard Jimmy Butler.


Carmelo Anthony doesn’t think Phil Jackson’s presence with the New York Knicks will have an impact on his impending free agency.

“I don’t think it’ll have any effect on me, just as far as what I’m thinking or my decision or anything like that,” Anthony told reporters after the team’s shootaround in Boston on Wednesday morning. “Like I said, I haven’t talked to Phil yet, just to get his insight on a lot of things — what’s his plan, what’s his future plan — because everything’s in his hands now.”

Anthony said the team told him earlier this week that Jackson would be joining its front office.


The Ohio State basketball teams will have a late present waiting for them when they return to the hardwood following the winter holiday. According to The Columbus Dispatch’s Bob Baptist, Value City Arena is getting a new floor that will be ready after Christmas. The design rivals that of Illinois’, particularly the school logo at midcourt superimposed over an outline of the state of Ohio.
Ohio State fans should enjoy this new feature, because it was a staple at St. John Arena. No, it’s not the same logo as the one in the old gym, but it’s a modern nod to it.
Other than that, the free-throw lanes, like the state outline at midcourt, will be stained darker, the “B1G” logo will be added below each free-throw line, and a Buckeye logo will sit at each corner of the court.

All jokes aside if you cant see by now that Lebron James is clearly better than Michael Jordan, take into consideration every angle of observation as a basketball analyst or the point of view of a basketball player.

The fact of the matter, when you get down to the nity-gritty details and specifics of the game of basketball, is that skills matter more than championships, at least in terms of who is the ‘better‘ basketball player. To win a championship you need a good team, and maybe a little bit of leadership too. But winning is over rated, and winners hyped into the greatness pool . To win a game you need luck, in the same amount as you need skill. One shot is all it takes to win a championship. There are billions of skilled basketball players in the world that never win championships. A championship does not make you skilled. It means you won a championship. There is not much more to it.

Lebron James is more dominant in the league than MJ respectively was in his time. He came into the league at a younger age, and was more of a prodigy than MJ ever was. He even reached the finals more times than MJ ever did at the same age. If Lebron James had the luxury of Michael Jordan to have greats on his team he would have more if not double the rings of Jordan. Had Jordan entered the league so early this would be a great argument that Lebron would win every time.
