Terry Porter has weighed in on the LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan debate. This has been a debate for a long time. But it is getting harder and harder to admit that LeBron has been just as good. The Los Angeles Lakers just picked up another NBA title after a very long break. This one was especially special because it came the same year that Kobe Bryant passed away.
LeBron James recently talked about this. Take a look at what he said.
“Of course, you think there’s going to be time for us to get together and I understand that there are regrets in life, but I definitely wish I had that moment with him,” James told Yahoo Sports. “I do remember when I decided to come here, he sent me a text right away and said, ‘Welcome, brother. Welcome to the family.’ That was a special moment because at the time, Laker faithful wasn’t [fully in on me]. A lot of people were saying, ‘Well, we might not want LeBron at this point in his career,’ and, ‘Is he right? Is he going to get us back [to the Finals]?’ So to hear from him and get his stamp of approval, it meant a lot. I don’t ever question myself, but when it’s coming from Kobe, it definitely meant a lot.”
Terry Porter Weighs in on LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan GOAT Debate
This has once again fueled the fire of the LeBron vs Jordan debate. Terry Porter has recently come out with his opinions on the matter.
“There’s no guy in my era even close to the size,” Porter said. “And again, my era didn’t have the ability to have guys who were playing multiple positions or what they say now – non-positions and playing three, four, five, spots.”
“The free agency was different back then compared to now,” Porter said. “Guys would never look a partner up. I mean, [Larry] Bird would never go to Detroit. Isiah [Thomas] would never go to Chicago… The dynamics of superstars to now and the relationships they have off the court, again back then, was not the way it is today.”
Well, there you go. It is interesting to see the different opinions on the matter. What do you think? Is LeBron as good as Michael Jordan?
