Future Hall of Fame pitcher for the Yankees CC Sabathia explained why he would choose to strike out Michael Jordan rather than LeBron James.
Sabathia is one of the most unabashed characters in the world of sports. He recently sat down for an interview with Jalen Rose and spoke about a wide range of topics at length. He spoke about his down time, when he was in rehab for alcohol addiction and in severe depression.
Sabathia lost his grandmother just before he was drafted in 1998. His father in 2003 and many other close family members in quick succession. He credited therapy and rehab with helping him tap into his emotions.
“I had to go to rehab to be able to get those feelings out and get those emotions out and really take a look and sit back, and mourn and grieve and give yourself a chance to breath. And it’s OK to cry.”
CC Sabathia picks Michael Jordan over LeBron James when asked who he wanted to strike out
Jalen Rose asked Sabathia if he had the chance to strike out either LeBron James or Michael Jordan, who he would choose:
“MJ for sure. Because he talks so much st. Even now, like, my shoulder’s broken I want his a to get in the box right now and strike him out.”
“Last time he came to one of my starts, I think I had like three or four walks, and I come out of the tunnel and … before he gave me a five, he was like ‘Why you walking so many guys?’… ‘I was like dawg I’ve seen the back of your f–king baseball card.”
