Ex-NBA player Stephen Jackson entered into the discussion of where LeBron James stands in the so-called NBA greatest players list:
“As a player who played against all of them [LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan], I see different things from all three of these guys, but Kobe was the closest to Jordan,” he said.
“Very few people can use the word ‘undefeated’ in the championship games. Being undefeated means something. 98 percent of people who play sports can’t say that. LeBron is the best all-around player we’ve ever seen, but he hasn’t passed Kobe and Jordan. Jordan, then Kobe, then LeBron. My opinion,” Jackson explained.
