Miami Heat v Charlotte Bobcats - Game Four

Michael Jordan has long been noted as the best ever to play basketball and since LeBron James has entered the league he’s garnered numerous comparisons to the legend.  Little by little, James has passed several of the record stats set by Jordan and some believe if he wins a couple more championship titles then the debate will be over and he’ll finally take over as the G.O.A.T (greatest of all time).  Some of those people of course are his very own teammates.

“The only thing that he’s missing is a couple more championships and then it’s a wrap,” Kendrick Perkins told Northeast Ohio Media Group. “Right now we have arguably the best player to ever play the game. I’m just saying man. I’m not taking anything away from Jordan, but all he’s missing is titles. A couple of more titles and that’s it.”

J.R. Smith, via Haynes:

“That’s one hell of a debate. Honestly, in my opinion, if it’s not Jordan then it’s him,” J.R. Smith told NEOMG. “It used to be no question. It was a landslide. It was Jordan. Now, you have to consider my boy.”

The Cleveland Cavaliers will play the Atlanta Hawks tonight for game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. LeBron & co. have a 3-0 lead and have a chance to sweep the Hawks on their way to the NBA Finals which would be LeBron’s 5th consecutive trip there.
