Tiger’s take on LeBron, and what it takes to be considered great in sports

Published

on

LeBron James and Tiger Woods are both on the shortlist for GOAT status in their respective sports. Even their most ardent detractors–MJ was better! Jack was better!–will grant them that.

While James doesn’t play for one of Woods’ beloved Los Angeles teams, it sounds like TW has kept a close eye on the King’s career and has been following along as he turns in brilliant playoff performance after brilliant playoff performance.

Talking with reporters ahead of The Players, Woods answered a question about LeBron’s greatness with some solid insights.

“First of all, I think that being great is doing something that no one can do, but also what separates those people – the ones that you mentioned, like LeBron or what I’m thinking the M.J. or Gretzky – it’s just the duration. They’re able to do it not just for one year, not just for one game, not just for a little spell. They’re able to do it for a number of years and accumulate highlights that we’ll always look at, and they’re peppered in our memories.

“To dominate something is one thing. Every player out here can have one good week and blow away the field. OK, great. Now, can you do it for month? Can you do it for a year? Now, do it for a decade. Do it for a decade-plus. Then start separating what is truly great, and in our sport, there has been a few guys that have had runs that have lasted for well over a decade and into two. And that’s what separates greatness.

“What LeBron has done for what, 15 seasons now, is just remarkable. Because it’s that type of longevity and to be able to be up for that long a period of time. And to be able to adjust as well because we all know as we age, we’re not going to be as athletic as we used to be. And so you have to do it different ways. And to be fluid and adjust and still be that talented and that good, hats off to not just LeBron but a lot of the people I just named.”

You can see the clip below.

Woods hits the nail on the head with respect to greatness in sport in general and golf in particular, doesn’t he? Every single guy on the PGA Tour can go out and shoot 63. Fewer can consistently put together four good rounds week to week, fewer still year to year.

    Can’t disagree with that. Greatness is anchored in longevity and all the great ones, or at least those not plagued with health issues or other demons, had it. Gretzky, Lemieux, Crosby, Orr (injuries), Howe, Bourque etc. etc. etc. Hank Aaron had 40 HR, 96 RBI’s and batted .301…at age 39!! He had 15 seasons with more than 30 homers!!
