LeBron James the NBA's most valuable player for the fourth time in five seasons and or -- -- into the record books with a win at -- Kentucky Derby.
It is a first for the horse and his hall of fame trainer.
At a Wall Street Journal's Jeff Foster joins us now.
With some more insight into the latest sports headlines and thank you for joining us -- Thanks very adamant that personally wanna talk about or -- and what are his chances -- to go after the Triple Crown what do you think.
Well I mean it's always hard I mean no one has done it since 1978.
And every horse that wins the first like the Kentucky Derby you always think Davis gotten a lot of them win the preakness which is in two weeks in Baltimore it's a very similar race.
-- them on the Belmont Stakes comments it's a mile and a half.
Very few horses have been able to do it and not have been able to -- in 35 so it's hard to say its chances are good.
And what -- we know about or about I was reading a little bit -- I understand this is being considered an old school.
When -- yeah holes yes that old Kentucky money.
It's an old school trainer.
It's a private trainer it's not one of these -- that has like five horses three horses and every derby race.
They don't really run that many guys and they don't they're not one of these centers that are focus just on winning the Triple Crown.
They're really -- sort of traditional Kentucky you know the way -- run that horse and -- farm in the family that that owns a horse and he was quoted as saying you know take your time let the horse -- bringing to the race and I'm actually surprised it was you know one trainers specifically there in the Kentucky Derby.
That I had five entrance 26 yeah -- I feel I'll treasure.
Yes -- a very good shot -- sir Matthews and you would think.
If you have five different horses how do you what do you tell which one way to tell which jockey but it turned out none of them did very well so it didn't work out for him aren't -- good for a warm.
Living on half fourth time in five seasons best basketball player in the world LeBron James do you -- Well I don't think there's anyone in the world who doesn't think LeBron James is not the best player in the world.
And everyone knows this I mean the question right now is is he the best player ever because -- -- many players have had four MVP is he joins a very elite group.
Michael Jordan cream Abdul Jabbar Wilt Chamberlain Bill Russell those are the only other guys have actually had four -- and he's the youngest to do it.
He's Jordan only -- two when he was 28 which is LeBron is -- itself.
Really it's turning to history but I think at the end of the day they're gonna measure who has the most titles and LeBron still just has that one from last year sorry.
Well finally we have to bring up the story and it's my sad note to end our sports segment but this -- rep who was killed in you talk.
By teenage player during a game it happened last weekend.
Yes it's terrible story he got on punched in the head.
By a goaltender seventeen year old kid indirectly.
And after getting.
I yellow card and he slipped into a common street and -- just passed away and just an awful story and it's actually.
Sadly we've seen this happen and other sports -- never happen in this country but just in December.
A similar thing happened in the Netherlands but Dutch draft was killed by three players after the games -- horrible.
And sedan and really unfortunate Mateen is that currently been booked into juvenile detention on suspicion and aggravated assault you know what can we do to stop this.
Well armed illegally the league in Utah where it happened -- that they've already boosted security -- a good thing and it sounds like.
There's been sort of similar instance of violence in this league in particular.
This reference family even said he's been attacked in the past so.
More security I think they're doing off duty police officers that kind of thing you'll certainly help and maybe the parents involved with he's -- Thank you so much Jeff Foster -- -- no profit.
Thank you -- well you know I've said this.
