Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy said some funny stuff in an interview with a Charlotte reporter regarding beating NBA five-time League MVP LeBron James in a one-on-one basketball game.
Jones was asked, what would happen if he went one-on-one with LeBron, and he replied in tremendous fashion, “How should I answer this question? …I would dominate that dude. Hands down, guaranteed win. And that’s my favorite player.”
That’s pretty bold coming from a football player whose only year playing collegiate basketball at Ole Miss averaged 6.7 minutes per game with a mere 0.9 points per game. Yet for some reason he thinks he could beat the best player in the NBA.
In James’ first year out of high school he averaged 19.1 points per game, 5.4 assists and 5.1 rebounds against the best basketball players in the world.
It’s probably safe to say that Hardy wouldn’t even score once.
