The man will LeBron ever surpass -- five championships. So that means he's got to get -- 66. Championships I'm more titles on -- is clearly better than everybody else in the league and he has help. With the officials as I mentioned earlier -- for -- -- It looked out and seeing my three championship and. Seemed to have misplaced my three championship were causing some days and they represented to reach yeah. Shipped it out myself this is my friend so -- -- in this every I seem to have misplaced three championship. He's gonna win he's gonna win more championships he's just so much better than everybody else a dominant player five this time items don't think he's got five more. I'm in Nazi now I published they want to put three or four essay yeah. An easy at his best he's a better player and Colby is best. I think LeBron is right now -- level right now higher than Kobe ever play in. But he's gonna win more championships -- -- Well if you think he's better than Colby at his best because. Well well why. He's a better all around where. Better defender. Better passer. Better rebounder -- which have been shortly and that I think Kobe was a better defender in his prime -- we actually got called for files that you can't what's brought it which can't be considered. You can't be considered a great defensive player -- he says LeBron defense all these position. C a guy who. Guard point guard he can guard three Egypt and guard force. And you never called for follow this like this fall aren't what Denny's and but it's a little help -- he's all right we're getting some assistance so I don't think legitimately. He's as great defensively as Colby was -- Mikey or which shows us what is -- is it true or not. How is that not a spot I think created the situation with the situation exists is he really giving you did better shooter he better -- -- so that's the one definite for Kobe no question. No doubt about it. But I'll tell you what he's gotten better what's -- from the field this year. It's crazy I mean he's writing a letter to run it crazy level right now I think -- level right now is the highest I've seen by any player. I think since. Decent short and your -- Is not a victory or just sector when than. Danica Patrick on the Daytona 500 pole positions he is the first woman to do so is this accomplishment meaningful or meaningless. -- Well I mean I think it's great. For her there was no one else on track which mr. drug sold positions -- to whoever goes around the track of fastest wins pole position -- as a cult. Probably wouldn't put up next to great female accomplishment -- make its epic which. Strong expert I would say that -- for her but this year actually gives up. One of these races ago. -- We don't -- camping boundaries ranked you know racing. You know racing did you breakdown racing for guests -- -- in -- That. They are racing and that's when you think of a race -- you think of a driver. Generally you have not thought of -- woman. That's because it hasn't happened before that you state that hasn't happened before work. Makes it a pretty huge accomplishment you can say all you want that she's on the track bars open. Which ports or you have to do is to go fast no other woman has done that before it's significant when you see erasing them do you think IndyCar by itself or what -- cars. Race and yeah I'd say just his lawyers say regular interviews after she -- is an Emmy race she's always you know -- it's there if she gets very emotional. Weight to. Does that translate it and who knows racing mr. -- mr. Gibson -- Does this translate. To the actual race with a car like. That there's -- poll but doesn't doesn't having doesn't your position. Factor into how well you can do arteries. All right five million times I also asked about Danica Patrick liberated. In the looks department. Okay are you very much -- and if she worked it you know Wal-Mart wouldn't be following the story she doesn't of course. Ovaries is also really tiny. She's not a -- -- -- -- people like about the mid December to discriminate on that -- out here ever on record listen and you go out these little short six point five you -- six point. Five yes given the scale of these commercials that godaddy commercials. Six point five on the -- that might godaddy scale machines to six she has tried to point for attitudes. On it I. Throw it. Especially as Mike are on the Smart Raphael please tell me that everybody has the look like that. On that skilling or maybe she -- of you but that's far and that's that's six point spicier.
