LeBron James playing 82 games in the regular season does not impress Stephen Jackson one iota

Video Details

Stephen Jackson joins Colin Cowherd in studio to talk about LeBron James after he played all 82 games of the regular season for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

- LeBron played 82 games. They pulled them out after a few points last night, but 82 games. He's never done that in his career. I'm not sure it's the smartest thing to do. If I was LeBron, at this point I'd be playing--

- You get paid to play 82 games. You don't pat nobody on the back for that. That's what you get paid for.

- He's a super--

- How many years MJ did it?

- Different, different.

- And consecutively. And the game was more physical then.

- So you're not impressed with 82 games?

- Not at all. You just said you spend $1 million on your body a year. If I spent $1 million on my body, I wouldn't miss a game, let alone practice, nothing. I'll be at karaoke every night, the gym every night, I'd be everywhere if I spent a $1 million on my body a year.

- So 82 games to you is the minimum?

- It's supposed to. It's what you get paid for.

- What about James Harden? He missed like 10 games.

- I played 82 games, we was playing four games in five nights. 82 games, that's what you get paid to do. You don't get no bonus for playing 82 games. This season is 82 games, right? You get paid to play basketball. You don't get a pat on the back for that.

- Shouldn't a superstar rest a little? Houston shut it down two weeks ago.

- Listen, if they feel like-- I'm not one of those guys, you know, you can ask any coach I played for. I play 30 minutes, they want to give me two minutes of rest, I'm mad. I don't want to come out. I want to play. This what I get paid to do. And it's a different time, so guys might want to rest and do all that stuff. But I don't believe in it because I don't believe in tanking.
