A Little Love From Overseas For Lebron James From Quantez Robertson

Quantez Robertson (188-SG-1984, college: Auburn, agency: Interperformances) is a 38 year old 188cm guard from Cincinnati that is playing his 14th professional season for the Fraport Skyliners. The ex Auburn (NCAA) minister of defense became the easyCredit BBL all-time steal getter and recently dethroned Pascal Roller as the all-time leading scorer. He spoke to germanhoops.com about his thoughts to Lebron James becoming the NBA’s all-time leading scorer.

Lebron James has beaten Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s NBA all-time scoring record. Did you stay up to watch history?

Actually I didn’t. I wasn’t even able to watch my daughters game. I fell asleep. My wife usually holds the phone for me to watch.

How does one put this record into perspective best? It stood almost 40 years?

It shows that even though he missed some periods of time in the last years with the Lakers that he could still continue to play at a high level and score at a high level and be consistent year in and year out.

He scored 36 points in 26 minutes. Was it another normal day at the office?

Yeh it was. He was scoring something like 35 points for a span every game the last weeks. He can score almost when he wants to.

How much is that ball going to be worth?

I think that Kareem will sign the ball and Lebron will put it in a glass case with all his other signed stuff that he has.

Russell Westbrook made the pass. Do you think that in 20 years the pass could be remembered more than his triple doubles?

No I don’t think so. I’m sure he will always be remembered for making the pass, but people will remember more that he averaged a triple double for almost 4 years.

His record breaking basket was a step back over Kenrich Williams. Is that the kind of shot you expected knowing the kind of player he is? Or would you have expected a dunk for the spectacular finish?

If I were a betting man, I would have bet on him getting a nice transition dunk or some kind of spectacular dunk coming down the middle.

There obviously is a lot of respect for Kareem, by the basketball world, but what would have happened on social media if Lebron had gotten the record with a sky hook shot?

Social media would have gone crazy especially with Kareem in the building. It would have been like a tribute for Kareem from Lebron.

Kareem is such a gentleman. You didn’t grow up with him, but what does his legacy mean to younger guys? Can they even understand what that guy did?

I don’t think that many will. Not many know that he won with Milwaukee and won with Oscar Robertson. The younger people won’t know about that. People will remember him more from his Laker days with Magic.

Lebron will have more than 40,000 points when it’s all over. Back in 1984 people said it would never be broken? Will this record be broken?

I think it can only be broken if there is somebody that stays healthy, can take care of their body and can score like Lebron did. I think only guys like Steph Curry and Kevin Durant could.

If Luka Doncic continues to play to 40 stays fit and becomes a physical specimen like Lebron, could he dethrone him?

I don’t think he will. He already played a good amount of years in Europe. I don’t think that his body will stand up. I think he could possibly play 15 years in the NBA.

Does this record finally give Lebron the GOAT status over Michael Jordan?

No I don’t. For the younger generation yes. I’m sure there are also older people that will give the GOAT to Lebron because they like his game.

What is your favorite Lebron moment that you witnessed live or on TV?

I remember some plays from when he was with the Cavs. I remember him dunking over a Bull player and going down the middle for a big dunk against Detroit.

Thanks Tez for the chat.
