Good news! Not every old-school NBA player believes LeBron James (not to mention Spurs, Warriors players) is ruining the game by taking some games off. That may be hard to believe with Dennis Rodman making waves this week for comparing Bron Bron to Michael Jordan (via CBS Sports)…:
“You know what, LeBron’s doing one thing that I always said that Michael Jordan never did,” Rodman said. “He never rested. He played every game. He played every game. LeBron has the position to do this now because they need him. The league needs him that’s why he’s doing all this crazy s— now like bitching and complaining and all this [BS].”
But a differing opinion has risen from an unlikely source — Charles Oakley!
Yes. Charles, who was busy with MSG security back in February, backed up Bron Bron on Twitter by roasting “Miss Wedding Dress” Rodman:
Dennis Rodman stop it you wasn't a tough guy. I think LeBron is smart , you don't have to be tough to play basketball Miss wedding dress

Huge win for Bron Bron here. He actually has a legitimate NBA tough guy in his corner for once — too bad he actually has to play out the season to secure the one seed.
