Beat me to it . No one forced him to sign with them . In my opinion leaving Kawasaki and going SX only was a detriment to his career. I'm not sure what the circumstances were with Kawasaki but I can't imagine they just didn't want him anymore at that point.

I can't remember exactly where I heard it. IIRR, I think Sorby said it in an interview one time. Maybe he was talking about just one of the seasons, I honestly don't remember but I thought it was interesting.

No, 2002 was Bubba's first season and he won the title. 2003 was his second season and he missed the first four rounds, then won every moto for the rest of the year. 2004 was his third and he went 23-1. Jesus just typing that out I still can't believe that's how well he did. He lost three overalls in his entire career in the 125 class.

2 strokes were on par with the 4 strokes? That's laughably absurd to those of us who were actually racing at the time. Maybe in 02, by 04 it was all over but the shouting

Didnt Ricky win 10 Championships, 2 Perfect seasons and beat Stewart Heads up more times than James beat him?

Yes, but we are talking talent here. Ricky is hands down the best racer the sports had. But James could do shit no one else could, time and time again.

This all comes across like the boxer argument at the barbershop in Coming to America.

Cassius Clay was the baddest motherf***er and would have won every SX ever . . .

From a different angle, is Jett better than Chad? Have my doubts. Pretty exceptional talent, though, it'd be great for us if he eclipses people like Stew. I'll settle for keeping himself more healthy than early JMart managed, who really is the better comp for what Jett is doing at this point.

James chose to ride the 125 when he had the 250f option. After round one he asked Kawasaki to race the 250f going forward but they told him no. Parts were already ordered from Japan to get him through the season. It was too late to switch to the 250f. He still went on to do well. He raced the 250f the last round and completely destroyed everyone. I think even Stewart will tell you that 250f was better than his 125 in 04.

I also think he was very happy to go from 05 to 06 and finally get on the 450.

To early to call and different paths with later start and be a little fair JS had more competitive bike against competition than Jet. Yamaha is that much better. Maybe 22 bike will be a lot closer and Jett will be even better? How many days to A1?

“The fastest way to kill something special is to compare it to something else.”

James had his time, let Jett have his. They are both special in their own right. It’s been what 20 years since James was 16....he owned THAT generation of small bore riders. Not Jett’s.

Waay deeper field nowdays. I was impressed with James willingness to die then be beaten. To the edge and beyond should be his motto. I won a lot of bets with his fanboys. DNF was always on the table

Jett is not comparable to Bubba. That is asinine.

Jett is over two seasons deep into his career outdoors. Bubba won the outdoor championship his first year while winning 19 out of 24 motos! Jett just won the championship with 8 out of 24 moto wins.

not even comparable

james was a once in a life time kind of guy in terms of talent. its actually phenomenal that he and rickys careers crossed paths

jett is def good but he is no standout, IMO.

The same guy who was second during RC's undefeated season in 2002.......

Stewart fundamentally changed the way people ride dirt bikes…he was a game changer, he raised the bar of what people thought was possible on a dirt bike…Jett hasn’t done that. Jett has some of the best technique around, and is very talented, but he’s not revolutionizing the sport and the way people ride dirt bikes….no comparison between the two.

It’s silly to talk about…

I say Stew is better as well, but it's too hard to compare now anyway. Jett is competing against a full field (almost) of farmed mx kids who have been brought up to be racers since they were babies, including himself. James was one of the first kids that fit this description, his competition was not on the level of Jett's competition.

Stewart vs Jett stats first 2 seasons

JS7 SX - 11 wins out of 18 races, 1 title
JS7 MX - 17 wins out of 19 races (overalls not motos), 1 title

Lawrence - 3 wins out of 15 races, 0 titles
Lawrence - 5 wins out of 24 races (i included his first 3 rounds in 2019), 1 title

Let's get real people. Stats dont lie, it isnt comparable at this point.

Hey Lenny how u think big James would have reacted to a bunch of 5-10 place moto finishes like those poor put upon Lawrence kids put up this summer 🤔 😳 🤣🤣🤣🤣

JS did more on a 125 than the new generation can do on the latest and greatest 250fs

9/16/2021 6:18 PM

Stew was good but how people go around thinking he was the greatest thing since sliced bread is beyond me. He wasnt even the best rider of his generation, I'd go as far as to say he wasn't even the second best of his generation.

Is he more talented than Jett? To early to tell in my opinion. Keeping a bike on two wheels is a great talent to have and James severely lacked in that department.

|

9/16/2021 6:54 PM

To the point about James not racing as tough of competition as Jett... you dont view James' competition as being as good because, well, they went up against James. Hepler, Millsaps, Short, Tedesco, Roncada, were far from nobodies. When Hepler was on, James was about the only rider he couldn't beat. He waxed Villopoto on multiple occasions but had bones made of glass and a cheap helmet.

Once again, this is why I hate the "entertainment" that comes from this guy. He knows damn well that the vast majority of people know James was the biggest talent to ever grace this sport, and saying something like this is a sure fore way to rile everyone up, engage him, and get to talking about him, which gets more eyes and ears on the stuff he puts out, which pads his bank account. Doesn't have to be true, just controversial and entertaining. Closer to idiocracy by the day!
