LeBron has been the best player in the NBA for a few years now and that isn’t taking anything away from Kobe. LeBron is in his prime and Kobe legend is coming to an end.
But, for whatever reason Michael Jordan seems to begrudgingly passing the torch to LeBron.
NBA legend Michael Jordan said Friday that LeBron James is the best player in the NBA, marking a change in tune, as he’s generally favored Lakers guard Kobe Bryant over the Heat forward.
”It’s hard to pick. It’s hard to say the best player,” Jordan told the Associated Press in an interview. ”You would have to say LeBron because of what he’s capable of doing. Kobe is coming off an injury and you don’t know where he is going to be at his age. I would have to say LeBron.”
