LeBron James is not pleased with ESPN NBA analyst Jay Williams.

On Thursday afternoon, Williams’ ESPN colleague and former NBA player Richard Jefferson sparked a discussion on Twitter when he said Giannis Antetokounmpo might be a “Scottie Pippen in need of a Jordan” after the Bucks second playoff loss to the Heat on Wednesday.

Williams replied by saying that there was nothing wrong with being a sidekick like Pippen because LeBron played the Pippen role while he was in Miami with Dwyane Wade.

LeBron saw Williams’ comparison and was not having it.

Considering that LeBron was an MVP candidate every season he was in Miami it’s kind of hard to imagine that he played second fiddle to Wade during that time.
