Hey, all programming and NBA fans.
I was watching an NBA game the other day and came to my mind the idea of compare each NBA star with the programming languages. This is just for fun so let's go with my idea of each pair and why:
The Greek God or Anteto as we say here in Spain. What a wonderful player, I think this guy will be one of the greatest soon. He has everything to win championships and I'm sure he will do. You do know how he plays and what are his moves but you also know you can't stop him. He will do once and again the same play and will always score in your basket.
You know Python, you know how it works and how simple it seems. But, each time you see it you notice the power of the language, again and again. Similar to Anteto. It has the power and uses it well.
What I can say about Lebron that nobody still has said. Let me say that Lebron has demonstrated to be as versatile as Java. He made Miami and Cleveland NBA champions. Those teams were different in their skills but he could make them winners. What else? He can play in the paint, score from out of the three points line and run and dunk.
Java works very similarly. It is a programming language that can run on several different devices, from computers and mobile devices to industrial machines and wash machines.
I must confess Kawhi is my favorite basketball player at this moment. My words are just for telling good things about this guy. He does a lot of things in the court: score, defense, rebounds, assistants, steals, etc. There is only one thing he is not as good as other mates, he is not a three-point line shooter. So, we can say his play is constant like a hammer but no spectacular most of the time.
DeMar DeRozan is a really good player. He does a lot of things pretty good like defense or steal the ball or score near the paint. We could say is from the old school but this is not enough these days. And players like him are not relevant in the league.
PHP was an important language for the web world and it still is. But, now, it starts to become a minor language. Yeah, it has a lot of features, a lot of really great things but not enough for these days.
Tray Joung is the guy that could do the same things as Stephen Curry but better. This is his second year in the NBA league and he is taking relevance in his team and the league as well. Something similar to Typescript. Seems he could be the following three-point shooter that rules the league.
I'm sure you're asking yourself about other greatest NBA stars or programming languages that are not on the list. Well, let me say I couldn't match them in the right way. For example, James Harden, the best attack player in the league, there is no one like him. But, I couldn't find a programming language that fits him. May R be a good option? I don't know but it should be one doing well only one thing.
Anthony Davis, Joel Embid, Russel Westbrook, Devin Booker, etc. There are lots of players and you can complete your list with different alternatives. That's good because we have a different opinion about all of them and we can discuss it and get a conclusion. Share it down in the comments and let's play a good match. Let me enrich this list with all your opinions.
Thanks for reading it and hope you'll enjoy it.
