Shannon Sharpe Rumors
The full rankings, released this week, caught the eye of someone over at Fox Sports 1. “Undisputed” with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe dedicated a full 11-minute segment to the list. “That USA TODAY actually put LeBron James No. 2 on the all-time list? You’re kidding. What are you talking about?” Bayless said. “This is nothing but a politically correct choice. It’s because they don’t want to burn the bridge to LeBron and his inner-circle, who are very powerful.” “LeBron James is disqualified from the second spot on this list,” Bayless said before criticizing the star’s free throw shooting.
Speaking on Shannon Sharpe’s podcast Club Shay Shay, ex-Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson was adamant in his belief that Luka Doncic has a legitimate case to be part of the NBA’s Top 75 Greatest Players list. Here’s what he had to say about the Mavs phenom. “The one guy that you named to me, I think, could well very be on the top 75 player list that comes out pretty soon. And people say will there be a sleeper that’s young, but Luka Doncic is the real deal. When you look at what he’s been able to do early on in his career, he has got it. If it was me voting, he’s on the list.”
That’s just a outline of a much deeper part of the newest Phoenix Suns’ big’s life he shared with Shannon Sharpe on an episode of “Club Shay Shay” that posted earlier this week. “Every day, I think about the struggles that we went through when I was younger,” said McGee, the son of 1984 Olympic gold medalist Pamela McGee. “Warm the water up in the microwave so I could take a shower or wash up before going to school. Living in Flint, but going to Detroit Country Day. We had to wake up early like 6:45, drive 45 minutes to school every day.”
On Monday’s “Undisputed” on FS1, in which Sharpe serves as cohost alongside Skip Bayless and Jenny Taft, Shannon Sharpe discussed a quote that he had thought came from Durant. The false quote, from an unverified Nets fan Twitter account, reads: “People try to discredit my rings, but honestly I feel like they’re the most valuable of our era. People argue (LeBron) is the GOAT, but if I beat him in back-to-back finals, then what does that make me?”
In true Durant fashion, he took to Twitter to put Sharpe on blast. “Y’all drunk uncle out here lying again. When did I say this @ShannonSharpe ???????????????????????????,” Durant tweeted in response to a fan who shared a clip of Sharpe’s analysis, and wrote, “I don’t think [KD] said this.”
The two of them continued their exchange on Twitter, with Durant calling Sharpe out for responding to someone else instead of him. Sharpe responded: “KD, IF* you wanna talk to me. I’m not hard to find, but I’m not going back and forth on social media. Whatever our differences are. They can be handled out of the eye of social media.” Durant tweeted a screenshot minutes later to show that Sharpe had blocked him on Twitter.
