“LeBron James Relates To Brett Favre.” Of Course He Does.
December 7 / Barry Rothbard / SportsGrid
It was only a matter of time before a loose connection was made between LeBron James' departure from Clevelandand Brett Favre's exile from Green Bay. And, really, it's kind of a miracle that we made it this long without one being made already.
Favre's a little too old for South Beach, however, so this connection is a bit obsolete. LeBron was asked after last night's win in Milwaukee if he could commiserate with Favre over leaving a fanbase that had supported him so vigorously:
"Brett [had] great years here in Green Bay, and any time a great competitor like that leaves, no one wants to see that, but they've done a great job of regrouping with Aaron Rodgers and I believe that Cleveland will do the same," James said.
In other words--Cleveland just needs to pray they land Kyrie Irving in this year's draft and they can start to get over me.
So let's see....Favre was in "Something About Mary" with Jeffrey Tambor, who was in "Malibu's Most Wanted" with Josef Cannon, who a) played for the same high school basketball coach as Dwayne Wade, LeBron's wing man, and b) was in "Like Mike" with Jason Richardson,who was in "Flintown Kids" with...LeBron James. That's only four degrees of separation!
