…And it wasn’t even CLOSE.

LeBron James may be the media’s favorite liberal athlete, but in the public’s eye, Michael Jordan still takes GOAT status, and it isn’t even close.

James has been racking up more achievements every season and for the last few years debate has raged over whether James has finally taken GOAT status (greatest of all time) away from Michael Jordon.

But while sports reporters and NBA statisticians may bicker over the particulars, it appears that the public still considers LeBron James a pretender to the GOAT.

Supporters of Jordan pointed to Jordan’s six championships, his undefeated record in the NBA Finals, and his overall influence in taking the NBA’s popularity to a new level as reasons why he’s the best.

Fans of James point to his longevity, his eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances, of which he won three, and his overall brilliance on the floor beyond scoring. James is also still at his peak and passing Jordan in several statistical achievements.

But a new INSIDER poll finds that James is a big loser in this barnyard battle.

The poll of 1,082 Americans found former Bulls star Michael Jordan earned 66 percent of the GOAT vote while James only saw 10.4 percent support for top status.

Others who found small numbers of supporters included Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Stephen Curry.

Jordan picked up support across all ages, not dipping below 54 percent in any age range. Granted respondents between the ages of 18-29 were more enthusiastic about James, then again many of those respondents weren’t around for Michael Jordan’s great career.

MLB Fans on Twitter Slam New Trend of ‘Flopping’ Baserunners

Shameful and unsportsmanlike.

Published

on

There is nothing more purely infuriating in the world of sports than watching professional athlete, often being paid an exorbitant sum to play a children’s game, decide to play the referees and not the game itself. We see this fairly often in soccer, as players attempt to draw a foul by exaggerating the contact made with another player, hoping to goad an official into handing over a free kick or some other advantage. This “flopping” has migrated to the NBA as well, with LeBron James standing accused of near-constant exaggeration. But baseball?  Oh, you had better believe that this unsportsmanlike charade has begun to make an appearance in America’s national pastime…and fans are not happy about it. https://twitter.com/mlberrors/status/1394025677880496135?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1394025677880496135%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2021%2F05%2F16%2Fwatch-mlb-players-are-flopping-like-lebron-james-its-ugly%2F https://twitter.com/mlberrors/status/1394025677880496135?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1394025677880496135%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2021%2F05%2F16%2Fwatch-mlb-players-are-flopping-like-lebron-james-its-ugly%2F https://twitter.com/tipping_pitches/status/1394024367785455616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1394024367785455616%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2021%2F05%2F16%2Fwatch-mlb-players-are-flopping-like-lebron-james-its-ugly%2F https://twitter.com/newballpark/status/1394021344140881920?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1394021344140881920%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2021%2F05%2F16%2Fwatch-mlb-players-are-flopping-like-lebron-james-its-ugly%2F Some fans were also concerned that the umpires and officials were unable to employ video review for the play, thanks to the way in which the rules surrounding the use of that technology were written.

‘Transgender’ Weightlifter Set to Destroy Natural-Born Women at Tokyo Olympics

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has foolishly agreed to allow a man claiming to be a woman to enter the weightlifting competition.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has foolishly agreed to allow a man claiming to be a woman to enter the weightlifting competition as a woman, and now that man is set to utterly destroy every natural-born female in the games. New Zealander Laurel Hubbard, 43, was born a man, but is now claiming to be a female weightlifter. And so far, every single competition he’s entered as a woman, he has made the natural-born female contestants look like 90-pound weaklings. And now that Hubbard has been allowed to join the New Zealand team, he is set to destroy every natural-born female contestant who will compete in Tokyo. Hubbard fell to sixth in 2019 after suffering an injury, but he is now fit and ready to go. Hubbard competed as a man for years in New Zealand, but seven years ago began transitioning to a female. Hubbard is now set to compete in the women’s 87-plus kg division in the Australian Open in Canberra on Sunday, NBC reports. The New Zealander won last month’s World Cup in Rome, lifting 270kg to beat Ukraine’s Anastasiia Lysenko by 4kg. Olympics candidates need to complete six events or more in the 18 months before the Olympic tryouts to qualify. Hubbard has qualified to compete as a woman per the newest rules put in place by the International Weightlifting Federation’s guidelines as well as the International Olympic Committee’s rules. Natural-born men who wish to compete as a woman must have testosterone levels are below ten nanomoles per liter for at least a year before their first competition, the IOC says. The IOC’s rules are not without controversy, though. The IOC recently shelved attempts to change its rules, but pulled back when the committee’s own scientists could not agree on standards. Hubbard has been tearing through…
