Former NBA champion Gary Payton weighed in on who is a better player between LeBron James or Michael Jordan. According to him, the Chicago Bulls legend might have advantage in some areas but overall the Los Angeles Lakers star is better ‘by far’.
“Two totally different basketball players,” Payton told Brandon Robinson. “Jordan was a guy who he was going to make big shots. He’s going to take the ball every time and shoot it every time he has to. I think LeBron is an all-around basketball player.
“If you ask me who is a better all-around basketball player, LeBron James by far. He does everything. He passes the ball better than Jordan, he can dribble it a little bit better than Jordan… shooting wise, I don’t think so, rebounding I think he did but Jordan did rebound.”
