Beef: LeBron Leaving Russell off Mt. Rushmore
Even Kareem had something to say about LeBron. When asked about James' choices during a press conference, he said the following:
"It's impossible, I don't know what LeBron was thinking. He didn't even see Bill Russell play. He has no idea what Bill Russell did. Eleven championships in 13 years? Eight in a row? LeBron isn't going to get anywhere near that. I don't get it. And here he didn't want Bill Russell on his Rushmore. I think today's players have a very limited perspective on the game. LeBron has to re-think that. He needs to go and do some research and watch some old film, and hopefully he'll be impressed."
Kareem has never been one to hold his tongue. You ask him a question he's going to give you an honest answer.
