The crazy thing about Steve Nash Ã¢â‚¬â€œ who finished eighth in the NBA MVP voting this year Ã¢â‚¬â€œ is that he was Ã¢â‚¬Å“overratedÃ¢â‚¬Â for so long that at some point, he became definitively undervalued.
To say things arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t going well for Tiger Woods at the moment is an understatement, and yet he has to know deep down that itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to work out in the long run. And letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s face it, you and I know the same exact thing.
Now donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get this twisted, I actually very much respect Derek Jeter. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an excellent baseball player, keeps his name off Page 6, does a lot of charity work and has a work ethic I admire.
But Jeter as Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year? Either it was a slow year, or that Ã¢â‚¬Å“awardÃ¢â‚¬Â is a sham.
And it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t a slow year.
It appears that after all this time, what the world might have really wanted is for Tiger Woods to be flawed, because it brings him down to everyone elseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s level.
When someone appears to be too perfect, it makes people uncomfortable. It forces them to face their own deficiencies. And for so long, Tiger was just too damned perfect.
And just like that, LeBron James has decided Ã¢â‚¬â€œ in his seventh year in the NBA Ã¢â‚¬â€œ that he needs to honor Michael Jordan, so heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s switching his number.
I mean, is there anyone that believes that this is his true motivation?
