Scottie Pippen Says “LeBron James Is The Best Player Of All-Time”
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’s comments come as a complete surprise, seeing that Pippen won six NBA championships alongside Michael Jordan, who’s often referred to as the greatest player to ever play the game.
Pippen’s remarks come on the heels of LeBron James leading the Miami Heat in a 83-80 victory over the Chicago Bulls last night, to advance to the 2011 NBA Finals.
Maybe Scottie was caught up in the hype. Maybe he was sipping ciroc and lemonade for breakfast. Or maybe he truly believes that.
Although, Jordan does have six NBA championship rings, and LeBron…zero.
But what do you think? Is LeBron James a better basketball player than Michael Jordan?
