Andy Murray does not say: 'I'm The LeBron James of Tennis

Quote:
Just one win away from the Wimbledon final, Andy Murray has compared himself to LeBron James.
Here's what he told Reuters:
"
Quote:
LeBron James would be a good example. He obviously is a great basketball player. He came very close to winning quite a lot of times. Him winning this year I'm sure was massive. For me as a basketball fan it was nice to see. I would say for me I guess it's a similar situation. I've been close a lot of times and not quite made it

LBJ had a million times more talent, and he got it done. Muzzah still needs to prove he can do it.

Another non-thread. The quote is taken out of context and even if it wasn't - who cares?

Tea of truth:

Re: Andy Murray says: 'I'm The LeBron James of Tennis

More journalistic brilliance with the title

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Andy Murray says: 'I'm The LeBron James of Tennis

Murray comparing himself to an athlete of the talent of LeBron James is laughable at best, pathetic at worst.

Re: Andy Murray says: 'I'm The LeBron James of Tennis

And again, LBJ did it in his third final, what happened to Murray in his 3rd?

Murray is miles better than that arrogant, stuck up prick who took a big fat shit on a traditional sporting city and the people who loved him.

Who's Lebron James? Cricket player?

Federer: Future number one.

Fed vs Rafa

Wimbledon: 7-2
U.s open: 5-2
AO: 4-1
FO 1-9
WTF: 6-0
Weeks at number one: 302-140(about)

Really no contest

You mean Cleveland? With an owner of the franchise that hates Lebron's guts?
