Hakeem Olajuwon Says Michael Jordan Is A “Far Superior Player” To LeBron

Michael Jordan, LeBron James

The only other basketball who’s better that gets us as riled up as Kobe Bryant vs. Michael Jordan, is one we hear a lot of younger fans spouting off when they say LeBron James is better than the G.O.A.T. Today, before the Knicks and Bucks tipped off at 3 p.m. ET at O2 Arena in London, Hakeem Olajuwon — himself a two-time champion, who played against MJ, and famously trained LBJ on the block — said Jordan was a “far superior player.” Amen, Dream.

Patrick Ewing, Scottie Pippen

The NBA isn’t like other professional sports in North America; they play on Christmas. Not only do they play, but the games televised on the national holiday signal a focal point for most NBA observers and a day when it becomes appropriate to take stock of the first quarter of the NBA season. With Christmas approaching this week, we thought it would make sense to count down the 10 biggest Christmas Day moments in NBA history, culminating in our top two choices on Christmas Eve 2014.

Brendan Haywood

Being comfortable in one’s skin can be a difficult task, but veteran center Brendan Haywood from the Cleveland Cavaliers has mastered the art. He’s a throwback type of center. You know, the type that likes to rebound, block shots and stay close to the basket. He’s a contributor not a complainer and never worries about what he isn’t.

Reggie Miller: Bad Michael Jordan Is “10 Times Better” Than Good Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant, Reggie Miller, Michael Jordan

Comparing anyone to Michael Jordan is futile. There likely won’t ever be another player who can match his gaudy team and individual accomplishments, and there certainly won’t ever be one that carries the same level of cultural clout. But Kobe Bryant brings it on himself – with on-court brilliance, maniacal dedication, and an admission that Jordan is who he emulates. We doubt that will make Reggie Miller’s assessment any easier for Mamba – let alone his legion of rabid fans – to stomach. Read More »
