LeBron vs. Jordan
This Saturday, Tom Warner and I will be discussing at length THE argument amongst basketball fans ... "LeBron or Jordan."
The NBA Finals begin tonight and the "three-match" is bringing NBA front and center much like it was back in Jordan's day. Still, the result - even the Kevin Durant storline - is really the subplot around the larger drama, LeBron's quest to supplant Jordan as the greatest player in NBA history.
Think I'm making this up? I Googled "LeBron vs. Jordan" and here's a sampling:
"LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan won't be decided by you," SBNation.com
"How to properly argue Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James moving forward," Sportingnews.com
"Jordan VS Lebron - Who is actually better!!!" Youtube.com
"The LeBron vs. Jordan debate never gets old," Sportsonearth.com
It'll be more than Tom and myself in the debate. We're hoping to have a current professional, Eric Palm, and a former pro, Aminata Yanni, in Saturday to weigh in as well.
The Stateline Sports Hour runs every Saturday from 7:07 a.m. to 8 a.m.
