Most of us got a good laugh out of DeShawn Stevenson's comment the other day, where, after his team beat the Cavaliers, he was so proud of his effort that he felt the need to say that LeBron James is overrated. It seems that LeBron was equally amused by this, and went with a Hip-Hop analogy to explain why he wouldn't even bother to respond:
"With DeShawn Stevenson it is kind of funny. It's almost like Jay-Z saying something bad about Soulja Boy. There's no comparison. Enough said."
So to recap, LeBron : Jay-Z :: DeShawn : Soulja Boy. I guess. Um, snap? Not so much. As Windhorst went on to explain in his piece, this reference, while amusing, doesn't really do the comparison justice. The disparity between these two players, in the grand scheme of things, is probably much larger than the gap in popularity of the two artists that LeBron mentioned. And while we all know about his friendship with Jay-Z, I wasn't aware that LeBron himself occasionally enjoyed a little Soulja Boy on the sidelines.
