LeBron James has a bone to pick with ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.
During his Uninterrupted show on Monday night, LeBron gave a detailed answer when he was asked how he would have fit in with Michael Jordan if the two had played together on the same team.
“Me personally, the way I play the game — team first — I feel like my best assets work perfectly with Mike,” J “Mike is an assassin. When it comes to playing the game of basketball, scoring the way he scored the ball, [then] my ability to pass, my ability to read the game plays and plays and plays in advance.”
“I saw the things [Scottie Pippen] was able to do with Mike. I just think it would’ve been a whole ‘nother level,” “Pip was one of my favorite players … It would’ve been a whole ‘nother level with me being a point forward, with me being that point forward alongside of him during those Chicago runs.”
Windhorst, who has a long history covering LeBron, wrote that the Lakers superstar fantasized about playing with MJ instead of wanting to compete against him on the court.
Many basketball fans enjoy debating who was better between Michael Jordan and LeBron James. But when the Los Angeles Lakers’ star fantasizes about playing with Jordan, it’s as his teammate, not his adversary.
LeBron felt Windhorst took his quote about playing with MJ out of context and set the record straight.
