This morning as I watching ESPN I seriously could not believe that former Chicago Bull and teammate of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen said that Lebron James could be better then Michael Jordan. I’ve heard a lot of crazy things in my time but let me make this clear Michael Jordan played in a tougher era with players like Bird, Magic and Ewing. He played against tougher teams like the Trailblazers, Pistons, Celtics, Lakers and Knicks.
Lebron James is a great player but he never will be Jordan. Jordan didn’t have to switch teams to win championships. Even if Lebron wins six with the Heat it doesn’t mean anything because he had to leave his team to play on someone else’s. Lets face it the Miami Heat are Dwayne Wade’s team and always will be.
Even Scottie Pippen’s teammates are in total shock and disagreement over his comments. I know a lot of Chicago fans can’t be happy about his comments considering the Heat just beat the Bulls to make it to the finals. One other thing I would like touch on is MJ made people famous, Lebron hasn’t. Look at guys like John Paxson, Steve Kerr, and many others who played MI. They wouldn’t be as famous if they wouldn’t have played with Jordan.
Scottie Pippen I have a lot of respect for you but realize it’s because of Michael Jordan you’re considered one of the all time greats. How many championships did you win without him? None whatsoever. Michael Jordan is greatest player to ever live and no one will ever come close to what he was and is to the game of basketball. End of story, case closed.
