Michael Jordan Talks LeBron James Comparisons, ‘We Play In Different Eras’

The debate about who is the best basketball player is very popular. In that discussion, oftentimes, Michael Jordan, and LeBron James are compared.

When asked about James during a press conference in Paris, Jordan made sure to still give LeBron James credit for the player he is.

“We play in different eras,” Jordan said. “He’s an unbelievable player. He’s one of the best players in the world if not the best player in the world. I know it’s natural tendency to compare eras to eras, and it’s going to continue to happen. I’m a fan of his, I love watching him play. As you can see, our league is starting to expand on very talented players. I think he’s made his mark, he will continue to do so. But when you start the comparisons. I think it is what it is. It’s just a stand-up measurement. I take it with a grain of salt. He’s a heck of a basketball player without a doubt.”

LeBron James has consistently given credit to Jordan throughout his career.

“MJ made the game global,” James said back in December of 2018. “He made people all over the world want to watch the game of basketball because of his marketability, because of the way he played the game of basketball, because of who he was. He kind of transcended that era.”
