LeBron James is pretty good at basketball. Fans of the game can agree on that, right? But for those who don’t know basketball, just how good is James at his craft?
Grammy Award-winning jazz musician Branford Marsalis joined SiriusXM NBA Radio, and attempted to breakdown the rarity of James’ talent in musical terms.
“LeBron is a complete anomaly. He’d be like a bass player who can play trumpet, and drums, and piano, and would just switch from different songs. and like. freak everybody out if he could just play anything that we wanted to play,” Marsalis said. “I would have to say at the end of the day, he’d come in as the bass department because despite the popular myths of music, in any kind of band, the timekeeper is the bass player. And if the bass player is weak, then the band goes south and doesn’t stand a chance.”
“The bass is kind of the heartbeat, and LeBron is clearly the heartbeat of any team he plays on.”
