George Hill Says God Only Person Scarier Than LeBron James After Game 2 Win

Maxwell OgdenCorrespondent IIIMay 25, 2013

Until the end of time, NBA pundits will compare LeBron James to Michael Jordan in attempts to determine which player truly is the best of all time. Despite losing to the Indiana Pacers in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Finals series, LeBron joined MJ in a unique category.

They've now both been mentioned in the same sentence as God.

Pacers point guard George Hill was asked about James' extraordinary Game 2 performance, and with good reason. LeBron finished with 36 points on 14-of-20 shooting, also grabbing eight rebounds, dishing out three assists and picking up three steals.

Hill put it in terms that almost anyone can understand (via Beyond The Buzzer):

George Hill on playing against LeBron: "There's only like one person who's scarier, and that's God."

To paraphrase, LeBron is a bad, bad man.

In 1986, Michael Jordan received similar praise from an opponent. After Jordan scored 63 points against the Boston Celtics, Larry Bird claimed that it wasn't MJ who went out and put on that still legendary performance.

It was God, said Bird via NBA.com:

I didn't think anyone was capable of doing what Michael has done to us. He is the most exciting, awesome player in the game today. I think it's just God disguised as Michael Jordan.

It's the stuff of legends.

Thirty-six points is only a fraction of Jordan's 63, but the comparison is warranted here. Even when LeBron appears to be playing in a rather pedestrian manner, he's pulling out an incredible performance.

As George Hill so elegantly put it, there is no man scarier than LeBron James when he's on his game.
