JJ Watt left a special note when signing his brother T.J. Watt's jersey for a fan 😂
ESPN is experiencing technical difficulties at the moment and will return to our regular Lebron James scheduled programming as soon as possible.
ESPN meant to post this:
Lebron doing more charity work by hanging out with me.
Like if preseason NFL football is better than soccer.
When I was a kid I had Deron Williams from the Utah Jazz autograph my Carlos boozer poster cuz he got a big applause after warm up and I thought he was boozer... Williams laughed his off at me while he signed, still have my boozer poster signed by Williams and framed!
I am not a Texans fan, but am definitely a J.J. Watts fan. He is one of the true good guys in the NFL.
What does this have to do with LeBron James?
New goal: Get the Watt brothers to sign each other's jerseys
Soccer should be call football and Football should be call Arm Ball
that's hilarious. Should get both brothers to sign it now.
I hope that fan gets their JJ jersey signed by TJ now.
Jersey will sale for more now! Probably already on eBay?
I got a caron butler jersey with a signature from dwade on it. You get signed what you got at the time 🤷🏽♂️🤣
That jerseys probably worth more now than it would be if it was the correct jersey.
Scott Whitwell, this is almost as funny as Drew Dempsey‘s basketball skills.
Watt messes everything up, terrible
that is now priceless until he does it again
That's awesome!! I LOVE Peyton Manning but to have Eli's autograph would still be pretty cool!!❤️
Lol thought it would've been the other way around. TJ moving on up
Did they not notice that’s a Steelers jersey?
Hope he didn't injure his wrist or ACL signing the jersey.
It'd be worth more if it was signed by Lahbraown-Jaaiyymes
What would have been funny is if the jersey was switched to JJs lol!
Kobe Bryant's investment in BodyArmor has yielded more than 30 times its money in fewer than 4.5 years.
He wouldn’t have done it without shaq
My friend bought bitcoin in January. He wants to kill himself right now
Kobe is my favorite player of all time, but when you are a well known sports figure like he is it’s easy to turn a $6M investment into $200M. Just saying...
Just here to see how some idiots will find a way to hate on this!
He needs to pay his fair share in taxes!!!!!!
Body Armor is good. I like that stuff, and it is so much better for you than Powerade and Gatorade. Read the labels.
how do i get facebook to stop showing me stories about insanely rich people? $6m ... $200m....it's all the same to me...shoot, show me $25k in cash and i'm a happy camper =D
Takes money to make money. Does he get a paycheck everytime someone yells, “KOBE!” When they take a shot😂
It’s amazing how many petty people are mad about this. We get it! Your parents think your a disappointment so now you get mad at the success of others. No need to voice your obvious pain, we don’t care!
Oh good. After the $680 million he made in career earnings and endorsements I was really worried about him surviving after he retired. Glad to know he doesn’t have to worry about money.
I'm pretty sure a financial advisor made that choice, not him.
What about David Wright trading a paycheck for a percentage of vitamin water for his endorsement? Shortly afterward, coke bought it and he made bank.
People are trying to discredit this guy but they couldn’t turn 6 dollars to 12 dollars 🧐🤣🤣 Just show respect or keep it moving, all the hating shows a side of you that you should keep tucked away from society lol
If you have millions to invest like that, then you have many millions period. Investing isn’t that hard especially when you have a cushion like he does.
Great investment but you got to have money to make money. Luckily for Kobe he could afford to lose the 6 but he lucked out and turned it into 200mil. Not a hating on him he's clearly a smart and cerebral business man just like he was on the court, and that's coming from a Celtics fan
I like the drink. It really is something you can rely on. I like their contests they have to meet players. I do feel better after I drink it. I think he should get credit for inspiring the blackout flavor for the Black Mamba. I like to try the different flavors and I'm glad they are making different size bottles now. Keep up the good work.
I remember when 50 Cent invested into vitamin water coke also bought it for like $300 million i believe, now 50 is only worth $20 million how the hell does that happen lol
Anyone else wonder how this stuff gets public? Like I understand if you are a famous athlete (let’s say basketball) your contract and earnings are public but outside investments is odd to have public anyone have any answers?
Still think he should come back and play now with all that cash do it for free change the stigma of the league a man that has everything why not be different
Micheal Jordan, Magic Johnson, Shaq, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James... dominant and sports dominant in life...The dominant Black man 💪💪😎
I tried 1 flavor n thought it suxs. Maybe a different flavor would be better. Never seen anyone drink that over Gatorade or Powerade though
This dude keeps winning. Won at basketball, won an Oscar, now we hear he’s winning at investments. Good for him.
For every Kobe story, there is a Schilling story when it comes to investments.
Lucas Greenall the rich get richer . The poor get peanut butter and jam . Not just any jam . Raspberry jam . Helgas bread too don’t forget . Raspberry has a silent p
What's Coca Cola going to do with Power Aid? Either they are going to canablize their own sales or create a Monopoly....
If the guy can finish around the rim and play defense he will be good in the nba.. idk what the hell you guys are talking about ... everybody doesn’t have to be curry
He’s gonna get locked down against Kentucky. Cats by 90.
No one does that to Ryerson and gets away with it 😡
Yeah this guy screams dominate at college level, mediocre in the NBA
And here comes the annual ESPN Duke love affair
I really question some of y’all basketball IQ. The kid dominates around the rim, has plenty of hustle and energy, and plays lockdown defense. If he continues this through the college regular season and playoffs, he’s going to the league easily.
Still won't beat Kentucky
Congrats they are playing junior college canadien teams. Where was all the love from ESPN last week when UK destroyed 4 good professional teams?
He going to be the 1st ovr next year no doubt
They're playing canadian teams. This is like if the browns went to play a CFL team (with our rules). Im sure baker mayfield would look like aaron Rodgers
Incredible athlete, but that athleticism isn't as striking in the NBA. Body-wise, he has average measurables (average height, average wingspan). He'll need to have supreme skills to compete with combo forwards in the NBA who are taller and just as fast as him.
UNC sweeps dook this season. They got the better big man in Nassir Little. Now that dook is officially a one and done school, expect the Heels to clean up the ACC from here on out! 🐏🏆
For his size ,outstanding athlete and if he works on his Jumper then he can be a huge talent.. Good luck to him.. All the people throwing darts 🎯.. they wish they had his game and size.. don’t kid your selves..
When he has to play a actual team. And actually defend. And actually run up and down the court every play. Not going to be the high school zion. Not to mention actually playing against some one big. Not high school kids
Get out of his way? Lol four guys with a foot in the paint nobody was even remotely in his way. Nice flush although uncontested completely uncontested
Aye he went 3/4 from that arc tho!? He still cant shoot? lmaoooo!! Oh what he didnt hit a mid range lmaoo foh. Kid is a monster
This is one of the contributing issues the NBA is facing..."The ESPN Effect". ESPN plays these guys up so much to sell viewership, they start believing the hype. In these games, they are not facing the same level of competition within the NBA.
Zion played well, probably better than Barrett. Couple thoughts- he’s gonna need some counter attack moves, he often goes with a pre determined move rather than reacting to the defence which is not gonna work against players as strong as him. On defence he is really good at timing out the block or shot challenge, he knows he can wait for the other players to jump and still react in time. Same for rebounding (gonna have to be careful he doesn’t get over the back calls a lot cause he just jumps over dudes who have superior position). 3/4 from Fiba three is impressive but he barely jumps on his shot, going to make it easier to block against better competition.
any one who says he won’t amount in the nba due to his lack of skill is very wrong. y’all jumping on what the media says. he’s put in a lot of time to improve his offensive versatility and jump shot. he’s showed it tonight. don’t hate, let him flourish under coach k and that duke coaching staff.
Josh Harrelson could handle this guy. Just like he did against Ohio States big guy they had a few years back. What’s his name again?
This kids gonna be fun to watch. I've officially changed my opinion on the one n done rule. The age limit to work is 15 and a half in this country...the NBA should be no different.
Masterful logic in here. If ESPN only shows dunks, then he can’t shoot 😂😂😂😂. He has been draining threes and is a good shooter. You would see that if you put some work in on google or actually watched him play.
Haven't seen him do anything but dunk. Won't be much help if that's all he can do!! UK will hand Puke their A$$e$!!!!
You can smash all the scrub teams by as many points as possible, still wont stop Duke from losing in the Tourney 😂
How exciting is it for Duke fans to watch this guy play for one season, lose in the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament and then he leaves for the NBA? What a great school and program.
Daryl Morey's run the numbers, and can come to only one conclusion about LeBron James.
😂😂🤣 yeah ok 👌

* In the Bulls’ 1997 playoff run, Scottie Pippen averaged 19 points per game on 42% shooting. All other teammates of Jordan averaged under 8 points per game
Kyrie averaged over 28 and DWade averaged more than 26
•MJ never ever had a finals meltdown like Lebron in 2011 against the Mavs
•MJ had more points in the playoffs in less games..
MJ accomplished all of this in 13 seasons

•MJ also shocked the league by being the first (and only) player to have 100 blocks and 200 steals in the same season, then turned around and did it again the next year..
•Mj also has more career blocks (893) than Lebron James (853) despite playing in 22 LESS career games and being the smaller guy.
Also, MJ averaged 1.6 blocks per game in the 1987-88 season which is absolutely bonkers for a 6’6″ shooting guard.
Seriously this list can keep going. This isn’t even a debate. Mj is the GOAT.

Michael in only ELEVEN complete seasons with the Bulls:
-10 scoring titles,
-Won Defensive Player of the Year,
-9 times all defensive team,
-9time All NBA,
-5 league MVPs
-6 finals MVPs
All 11 seasons. Mj has done in 11 seasons things Lebron hasn’t done and won’t do in his whole career...
I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating. It’s all generational and opinion based. My dad would say Bill Russell is the greatest. Someone my age might say Jordan. Someone my sons age might say LeBron. And 20 yrs from now, some people will say some other great player is the greatest ever. And none of us are wrong!! The greatest player of all time is an OPINION. The bottom line is? They’re ALL great.
Statistically speaking, he definitely is the best. But he's not the GOAT. The GOAT doesn't quit on an elimination game in the Finals.
The Ring argument is a dumb one. Use anything else you want, but the ring argument is a horrible measurement on greatness for single player performance in a team sport. By that logic 7 players are better than MJ including Robert Horry because he has more rings. We all know Robert isn’t. Stop using rings as an excuse to hate on Lebron. Both are great players and I’m not saying one is better than the other. Simply rings are a team accomplishment, not a solo accomplishment purely.
40k 10k 10k club will have 3 rings with 3 different teams. GOAT!
Barely beat a Celtics team missing its best 2 players then got swept. Now he's gone out west and won't see another finals except on tv
And Daryl Morey just traded for Carmelo Anthony so that goes to show how he gauges talent.
When did jordan ever win in the nba without 2 other hall of Famers. Oh ya never lol hed get bounced first rd swept in 2nd rd fir years. Lebron took a 20 win team the the finals at 22
Lebrons individual accomplishments are probably the best. But he can’t win when it matters, and him leaving 2 organizations in a 5 year span shows that
Why is that when this argument about Lebron and Mike is debated I NEVER read or hear defensive statistics. Offensively I want a killer. That’s Mike. Stop passing to Kyle Korver when the game is on the line because that’s the right basketball play. Average free throw shooter, so end of games he’s not looking to go to contact. Handles the ball for 10 seconds of every possession (see Russell Westbrook and harden). Of course he’s going to have numbers. Oh, and the defense. YouTube Michael, defense. Even if he was playing the Warriors while on the wizards, he’s not giving up. And he’s definitely not blaming it on a bum hand. Mike is the Goat. But I’ll take Lebron off the court any day!
How about we compare what lebron has gone against vs michael Jordan ....... not even close lol..... how about we say floyd Mayweather is better than Muhammad ali then.....
They got that good liquor in Houston. Morey must drink it & cook with it because it ain’t even close LeMove ain’t even near GOAT maybe Goat cheese or goat milk . 🤨
I don't care about ranking players. He is the greatest of his generation. He would have been a different player in, say the same era as MJ or Bill Russel. He's better than others in some ways, those players are better than him in other ways. It's a pointless subjective debate.
LeBron James is objectively the greatest basketball player to ever live. It’s so stupid that we keep pretending like it’s even a point that you can argue.
Well at least LeBron doesn't have to wait until the finals to lose to the Warriors now he gets to in the first round!!
It’s football season I’m sick and tired of seeing crap about the NBA and I’m definitely sick of seeing crap about LeBron James my god get off of it!! Two letters for you ESPN! MJ The greatest to ever play the game you morons! LETS GO MOUNTAINEERS!
I agree that it is a big margin but LeBron is not on top. Too many flops, too many excuses, quit too often and doesn’t make those around him better.
Both are worthy of the goat conversation. I have Jordan but I can see and get the Lebron case. For me Jordan's dominance in the finals is the deciding factor. 6 for 6 is amazing but 6 mvp awards too. Mj was always the best and most dominant player on the biggest stage.
Lets see how he fares in the loaded West Conference. Bet he dont make the playoffs. Jordan had to run the East gauntlet every year. We all seen the years the East had competion, LeBron won absolutely nothing without joining multiple All Star teams.
Numbers is meaningless when you compare it to the time having a different rule. Hand checking? Illegal defense? No more now. The rules nowadays more in favorite of offense. Bigger numbers from easy rule now cannot compare to the tough past. Period.
I like when he was asked did you get a chance to talk to LeBron? He responds " he's got his own way of doing things and we respect that" another way of saying he does what he wants...
(of a person or their behavior) primarily concerned with making money at the expense of ethics.
I believe ESPN posts stuff like this to see how many sheep they can rally to argue with each other. This is USA in 2018. Nobody cares about your opinion. Everyone just waiting for their turn to talk
He’s not catching Stockton (assists) he’s not catching Wilt (rebounds), he’s not catching Olajuwon (blocks) he has a chance to catch Kareem (points) so what numbers made him come to this conclusion?
Who is Daryl Morey and why would anything he say be relevant?? Hasn't won a championship, hasn't been to a NBA finals, and just signed Carmelo.

"Little League player actually 17."
My son was 6 feet tall when he was 13 . I had a lady behind me at one of his baseball games discussing how he could no way be 13 and something should be done about this “fraud”. So I turned around and introduced myself 😃. Hello , I’m the fraud’s mother .
It's Kevin Hart and the rock in their new movie..
"little" homie got a mortgage.
I'm sure of it.
Can't fool me.
Beaver tranquilizers. There was once a case of this in the girl scouts. Her name was Bernese. She got her team disqualified against the average Joes in a dodgeball tournement.
When I was 13, I was 6’1”, 180. I reached my current height of 6’4” at age 15. Human biology is an inexact science, people.
😂 Welcome to my world
On the left is my son Héctor 12yrs and my nephew Julian 13yrs on the right . I use to love to see the faces of the other teams parents when these two ran out 😂
My son is 6’2 and 13, so what’s the problem? Some kids just get an early growth spurt. I actually had to get a state Id to verify his age because some people didn’t believe he was 13.
I can relate I was 6ft 160lbs in grade 7. couldn't fit in the desks properly used to levitate the desk on my knees. 😂one time I sneezed so hard my knees jerked I flipped the desk. Everyone looked back and thought I was hulking out and I just yelled sorry just a sneeze not angry don't need to be sent to the office 😂😂
My son was 6’1 in 8th grade, and you can be bullied at that size..and he was....felt bad, but then at 6’7 , 300 lbs as a senior ( and not fat) he took care of the ones who bullied him, nicely, went on to play football at NDSU, grew up to be one of the nicest kids I know!#be nice you never know when karma can get you! #big kids mom@6’
That's a full grown man! I saw him with a six pack and a bottle of Jack before the game. His wife and two kids gave it to him.
After this year there won’t be any more 13 year olds playing in the llws. Changing date so you can’t be 13 before sept 1st.
To be fair, there’s been several times we’ve found out the players in the little league World Series were over age after the tournament was over.
And that 13 yr old is not being developed as a player on a field with 60’ bases. If he’s that big he should be on the big diamond where he belongs. That would actually benefit him. Of course his development as a player would have to be the priority for that to happen. Little League needs to evolve...
Exactly why the LLWS is a terrible model of baseball for 13/14 yr old kids. It's insane that they don't even play on a 50/70 field much less an actual regulation size field.
Everyone always jokes that the tall kids are 16, but if you’re really trying to skirt the system, you’d bring in the kid who’s 14 and looks 11 but hits like he’s 16. Why would anyone try to cheat with the kid who stands out the most.
I have no reason to discredit the way this guy look. I've seen plenty in my lifetime that look 3-4 years older than their age(and younger)when I was in grade school.
I find it funny how people who were 6' at like 10 years old, only grew to like 6'3" MAX. I don't believe none of you
RIGHT THERE WITH THAT KID growing up. I was so tall that at 11 I was asked if I was too old to go trick or treating and my momma had to yell at a mofo I was only 11 and in the 5th grade. (on the plus side, they either gave a ton of candy or slammed their door ashamed of themselves)
13 years old is too old for those little league dimensions anyway. Regardless of size they should be playing 75 foot bases at that age.
I remember when Hosea Taylor ex-Baltimore Colt 1981-1983 played Little League in Longview, TX, and they demanded to see his birth certificate, because he was so big. He must not have grown much between then and college because he was 6'5" when he was drafted in the 8th round.
Uuummm...I believe his playing the wrong sport someone get this kid a football and a basketball... oh i played football when I was 12 old years had a kid on our team that was 6”1 and 250 pounds. He could barely get in a 3 point stance but man he made our O line look big and could always push a whole open for Guaranteed yards. Yeah we won all of our games lol...
We gave Bill Barnwell $177 million to spend -- sort of -- and asked him to build a flawless squad ... with a few rules. This is the result.
