“You don’t see Kobe [Bryant] tweeting,” Perkins said. “You don’t see Michael Jordan tweeting. If you’re an elite player, plays like that don’t excite you. At the end of the day, the guys who are playing for the right reasons who are trying to win championships are not worrying about one play.
“They also are not tweeting about themselves talking about going down to No. 2. I just feel [James] is always looking for attention and he wants the world to like him.”
Just looked it up: Miami at Oklahoma City, March 25th, 8 pm. Circle it on your calendar. There will be an NCAA tournament game or three that night, but you’ll want one eye on this game.
As for Perk’s quotes, while I agree, I wonder – is twitter a generational thing for athletes? Over-30 stars like Tom Brady, Derek Jeter, Albert Pujols and A-Rod aren’t on twitter; but under-30 stars like Aaron Rodgers, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard and Justin Verlander are active on twitter. What to make of Drew Brees (
35 33), then? [Yahoo]
