Chad Sonnen

I think LeBron’s a dork. He won one world championship, and that was in the Olympic Games. It’s so aggravating to hear a title be called a ‘world champion’ when it’s only done in America. It’s not a global event where the whole world can participate. You didn’t win a world title. You won a national title.

~Chad Sonnen (Silver medalist at the 2000 Greco-Roman World University Championships)

This guy is the inside anatomy of an ass.  He says it’s so “aggravating” to hear a title be called a ‘world championship’ when it’s only done in America.  Well Chad, that’s because all the best players, from all over the World, play in American leagues.  That’s why there were 59 NBA players in the global Olympic basketball bracket.  Yoa Ming plays in the NBA because China doesn’t have a league that people “watch”.  Every Dominican baseball player dreams of the MLB, every Eastern European dreams of the NBA, and every Canadian dreams about the NHL; some just don’t make the cut.  The NHL is played in America and the best players from all over the world play in it – making the American Stanley Cup the World Championship of Hockey.  I find it painful that I need to even explain this.  We give the most money, exposure and endorsements to the athletes, so the best athletes from all over the World play here.  Not to mention – who the fuck is even calling the NBA Finals the World Championship?  Not me, not ESPN, not USA Today.  It’s probably Sonnen’s own goddamn friends that are like, “Ehh, Chad ehh, want to watch the World Basketball Championship tonight ehh?”  And then Chad, who was submitted in UFC 60 (another American league), losses his mind trying to compensate for his non-climatic career and Canadian heritage.

Long story short:
America > Canada
Lebron > Sonnen
