A trend as of late in the football world is running backs comparing themselves to varying NBA superstars. Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles started this trend comparing himself to Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James (although now Derrick Rose would be a better comparison). When asked about Charles's comments,
Vikings superstar Adrian Peterson said "I'll say I'm the Michael Jordan,'' Peterson said on a recent conference call with Kansas City-area media. "There's always the debate, would LeBron be better than Michael? So I'll say I'm the Michael Jordan of football.'' Now the comparisons have found their way to our beloved Matt Forte. Peterson said on Wednesday “Matt Forte. What would I call him? I would call him Stephen Curry. Mr. Dependable. That’s what I would call him,” Peterson told Chicago reporters.
