    Ever since Michael Jordan retired — all three times, really — the NBA
    has searched for the heir to his throne. Many players have popped up as
    pretenders to the throne, from Harold Miner to Jerry Stackhouse to
    Vince Carter. In recent years, people have stopped trying to find a
    clone and just searched for a similarly dominant great player. If you
    ever wondered why LeBron James is seen as such a failure, a lot of it
    has to do with his inability to meet the example set by Jordan.</p>


    There are many great players in the NBA these days, most of whom have
    never been directly compared to Jordan. Nevertheless, His Airness says
    only one player comes close enough to his greatness to merit the
    comparison. Not surprisingly, that player is Kobe Bryant. Here's what
    Roland Lazenby, a great writer currently working on a Jordan book, tweeted on Sunday (via PBT):<span id="more-13283"></span></p>
    <blockquote>

    <font color="#0000FF">Kobe's ultimate competition is MJ. That's why MJ watches
    him. MJ made people think what he was doing wasn't human. Ditto the
    Kobester.</font></p>


    <font color="#0000FF">I never said Kobe was better than MJ. MJ just told me Kobe's the only one to have done the work, to deserve comparison.</font></p></blockquote>


    Congratulations, Kobe: Your life's work has meant something. All that
    time spent aping Jordan's movements and skills has paid off. He
    acknowledged you. You made it.</p>


    Of course, if the notoriously petty Jordan was going to mention
    anyone, it makes that he'd single out Kobe, and not just because he'd
    consider the mimicry flattering. Bryant really does work harder than
    everyone else, and he's been good for long enough (with no signs of
    slowing down) that he may eventually top Jordan's longevity. They're
    similarly insane competitors.</p>

    <div class="report">


    Free agent CB Terrell Thomas resumed running Tuesday for the first time since tearing his right ACL on August 22.</p>
    </div>
    <div class="impact">
    Thomas had to wait over a month before undergoing
    reconstructive surgery, and the right ACL tear was the second of his
    football career. Emerging as a playmaking corner before the injury,
    Thomas has had no contract talks with the Giants. "Once the season’s
    over, it’s all about me hopefully re-signing with the Giants and moving
    forward," he said. Thomas turned 27 earlier this month. He may have to
    settle for a one-year, prove-it deal on the open market.

    <div class="report">


    ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on SportsCenter
    Wednesday that Peyton Manning "will not push back" his $28 million
    roster bonus and will either stay with the Colts or be released by the
    Colts.</p>
    </div>
    <div class="impact">
    Per Schefter, the sides are dug in. Owner Jim
    Irsay isn't going to trade Manning, and Manning won't restructure his
    contract to allow the Colts to get something in return. The $28 million
    bonus is due on March 8. Irsay is staunch in his commitment to pay
    Manning if he's healthy, but he's going to have to receive medical
    clearance from neck surgery in order to see the money.

    I read that article yesterday, and i was like "meh...who cares" until I got to the part that said:

    "Congratulations, Kobe: Your life's work has meant something. All that time spent aping Jordan's movements and skills has paid off. He acknowledged you. You made it."

    And i laughed so hard i almost **** myself. lol</P>

    I'm willing to bet Colts change their tune and Manning stays. I'm sure he wants to stay anyway.

    Here's the thing that bugs me:
    If the Colts were to cut ties with Peyton for whatever their reasoning is, they are basically saying "Winning isn't our #1 priority right now. Saving money and rebuilding is."
    And that's just not ok.

    Same thing goes for Norv Turner not being fired from San Diego. That team is basically telling their fan base "Mediocrity is ok in our playbook"
    How are these things right?!?! lol</P>

    I disagree about Peyton. Colts stance is clear. If he is healthy to play they will keep him, if not they won't. IF hes not going to be able to play and play at his level, then you can't have a player on your team for 2 years, pay him over 50mil and not get production out of him
    Fear the name, appreciate the game
