Former Chicago Bulls basketball player and Michael Jordan teammate, Scottie Pippen, started a huge debate amongst sports fans this morning. Today, while on ESPN television/radio show Mike & Mike In The Morning, the seven-time NB All-Star said Miami Heat baller LeBron James is a better player than Michael Jordan.
“Michael Jordan is probably the greatest scorer to ever play the game. I may go so far as saying LeBron James may be the greatest player to ever play the game,” Pippen during his interview this morning.
Pippen clarified Friday afternoon, tweeting that he does not believe James has eclipsed Jordan — yet.
“Don’t get me wrong, MJ was and is the greatest. But LeBron could by all means get to his level someday,” said Pippen, who was courtside for the Heat’s five-game Eastern Conference finals triumph as a Bulls TV analyst.
I think Scottie is a little of jealous of Michael, what do you think? Is LeBron James a better basketball player than Michael Jordan?
