Former NBA star Shawn Kemp weighed in on the GOAT debate between Michael Jordan and LeBron James. Kemp, who played in the league for the major part of Jordan’s career and retired the season before LeBron was drafted, sided with the Chicago Bulls legend.

What separates MJ from the rest, according to Kemp, is his winning. The six-time NBA champion was the reason behind the Bulls’ success. Though Kemp gave credit to Scottie Pippen, who played a major part in helping Chicago win six titles.

“I’mma say Michael Jordan. I think LeBron James has done great, but only thing Michael Jordan ever did was win. There’s players as myself who haven’t won a championship that were very good. There’s guys who I’ve seen win championships, they’re good players, but they had a good team also around them,” Kemp said on the Dab Roast as transcribed by Nico Martinez of Fadeaway World.

“And I look at Michael Jordan, he played with the Bulls, and he had Scottie Pippen. But without Michael being there, the Bulls wasn’t gonna win the championship. It came from Michael Jordan.”
