Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Jerry West said yesterday that LeBron James is the best player in the NBA - he also said that if he had to choose a closer he would take Kobe. This morning in an interview they asked him to explain what he said. He said first of all there have been lots of folks and lots of pressure for me to either appologize for what I said or to say that I was misquoted. I assure you that I was not misquoted.

LeBron IS the best player in the NBA today. He has many, many good years left and he is improving every game. Kobe is a great player and has been the best several years. He is no longer the best and he no longer has the most potential of all the players in the game. But don't sell him short. He still knows exactly what he needs to do to win - and he does everything he can - every night - every time to win. I'll take him for my closer every single time.

Jerry West was also one of the best - I loved the interview - I loved his bearing during the interview. He was and IS an intimidator.
