To be honest, hearing Scottie Pippen talk about Michael Jordan and LeBron James last week made me a little sick to my stomach.
I grew up watching Michael Jordan. I doubt there will ever be another player quite like MJ in my lifetime.
Michael Jordan is not only the best basketball player who ever played the game, he may be the most dominant athlete of all time.
Even LeBron knows it. He told Marc Spears at Yahoo,“I got a long way, long way to be mentioned as one of the all-time greats. Not even just Jordan – there are a lot of great players who have played in this league: Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and all these guys that are floating around with multiple rings. Bill Russell. All of these guys who have pioneered the game for myself and Dwyane Wade."
“I’m gracious, humbled by Scottie’s comments with him being a teammate of his and seeing Michael on a day-to-day basis. But as far as me? I don’t know. I’m not going to sit here and say I’m better than Jordan or if I’m not better than Jordan. It’s not about that.”
So if Lebron knows it, why would Scottie Pippen, of all people, say something like that?
He is either the biggest Jordan hater of all time, or he is crazy.
If you are like Scottie Pippen and you believe LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan, here are 23 reasons why you are both crazy.
