Scottie Pippen: Lebron James over Michael Jordan

Fair use from Sports Illustrated’s website.

I can’t believe what I just read moments ago at  a site called With Leather.  On a May 27, 2011 blog post, Brandon Stroud quotes Scottie Pippen from ESPN’s Mike and Mike in the Morning show as saying the following:

“Michael Jordan is probably the greatest scorer to ever play in the game. But I may go as far to say Lebron James may be the greatest player to ever play the game.”

Are you serious?  How many championships has Lebron James won?  Yeah, he’s on his way to an NBA Finals, but he had to have a three-man MEGATEAM assembled to get that done.  I was such a Chicago Bulls fan growing up, and I can’t believe that Pippen simply thinks Jordan was a great scorer only.  How many times did Jordan make the All-Defensive Team?  I can’t help but shake my head.  I can’t stand Kobe Bryant or Lebron James, but at this point Kobe has a lot more going for him in a comparison with Jordan than King James does.

Yes, I know I’m ranting about sports, but this is a Real Man blog just as much as it is a Real Dad blog.  As a man, this has me all discombobulated.  Thoughts?

My favorite is being a husband and a father, but right behind that are being a soldier, ring announcing for pro wrestling, rapping, interrogating, blogging, and background investigating. I own and operate Real Men, Real Dads ( I look forward to working with new people on exciting projects!

  1. Kobe has been phenomenal and the best comparison to Jordan. I would have been curious to see what would have happened if Jordan hadn’t taken two vacations in his career.

    All that wear and tear plays a role.

      You are right… and to tell you the truth, the Jordan’s teams during those absences may not have been in the best position, even with him, to win more rings.
