That dress won’t stay on for long…
LeBron and Durant train together. This trips me out because I don’t think Magic and Bird would have ever trained together. I can’t think of any past superstar combo the would do this before this generation of players came around.
Jordan and Magic? They couldn’t even keep their competitive spirits in check when playing for the Dream Team.
Hakeem and The Admiral? That would have been war.
Jordan and Charles? Maybe on a golf course. But basketball? No way.
Russell and Wilt? Shawn Bradley would score 100 in a game before this happened.
I guess it’s a different day and age we live in. Maybe it’s social media that brings these stars together. Maybe it’s the drive to get better. maybe the lockout have given them common ground to stand on (hatred of NBA owners). Maybe they practice the mantra of keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Who knows what brings them together. I just know that it makes for better basketball players. And that makes for better games.
