INSTAGRAM: DeSean Jackson Takes Shot At LeBron With Kobe, Jordan Picture
A couple of months ago, DeSean Jackson became a major topic of discussion in the sports world with the controversial wide receiver being cut by the Philadelphia Eagles. Jackson being cut by the Eagles was rumored to be in the works, but no one thought it would really happen.
Unfortunately for Eagles fans, the three-time Pro-Bowler signed with the division rival Washington Redskins shortly thereafter. News surrounding the elite NFL receiver has died down as of late, but it may ramp up after his latest Instagram post.
Apparently, Jackson seems to be a fan of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant and not all that fond of LeBron James. Jackson posted the following picture on Instagram in on Wednesday in an attempt to make a point about James’ current situation in Miami:
Jackson isn’t alone in his opinion of LeBron and the Miami Heat. Even though many have put “The Decision” behind them and have backed off criticizing LeBron, the superstar and the team filled with Hall of Famers still has its critics.
Outside of Scottie Pippen, Shaquille O’Neal and Pau Gasol, Jordan and Bryant were surrounded by the perfect combination of role players that propelled the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers to a total 11 NBA titles. Karl Malone and Gary Payton joined Kobe and Shaq before the team was ripped apart, but both players were well beyond their prime and hoping to win a title before calling it a career like many veterans do.
Both Kobe and Jordan have their fair share of haters, but it’s nothing in comparison to the hatred people have had for LeBron and company.
LeBron’s decision to sign with the Heat alongside Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will be criticized for years to come. Many believe LeBron simply took the easy route to win titles, but the fact of the matter is that he was able to dominate competition since landing in Miami winning two rings so far.
Ultimately, if LeBron ends up with two titles to his credit, Jordan and Kobe will continue to soar above the Ohio native in the grand scheme of things. LeBron still has a ways to go before being put in their category in terms of championships, but he’s also only 29 with potentially a lot of basketball left to be played.
