Michael Jordan is not blind to the fact that LeBron James is closing in on the title of Best Basketball Player of all-time. How could he not? “The King” has been to the NBA Finals seven years in a row, which is unheard of in the modern era, and even though LeBron is only 3-5 in the Finals, he’s almost always the underdog – Jordan was always the favorite – and he’s had vastly inferior supporting casts compared to MJ.
Which is why MJ told campers this:
“Would I rank LeBron over Kobe in terms of best of all time? No.
There’s something about 5 that beats 3.
Now he may be better than that, but Kobe won five championships. LeBron won three.”
Almost every basketball expert would put the much more efficient LeBron James higher than Kobe in their rankings but it appears MJ is going to continue throwing shade LeBron for as long as he can.
