Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson had the ultimate compliment for LeBron James after watching the reigning MVP bury his team with an amazing fade away three to down the Warriors Wednesday night.
After the game, Jackson called LeBron the greatest small forward of all time and said he has no weaknesses or flaws as a player.
“I really don’t think it’s fair to have a Mount Rushmore,” Jackson began. “Like even LeBron’s Mount Rushmore, he left some incredible basketball players off that mountain. But whoever you want to put up there, you might as well start chipping away at his face.
“The guy in my opinion is the greatest small forward that’s ever played this game. And he will be in the discussion with anybody that’s ever played the game when it’s all said and done. He’s an incredible basketball player, complete basketball player, with no weaknesses and no flaws.”
LeBron is playing mind games with us all. The more we praise and anoint Kevin Durant, the harder James pushes back to keep his spot as the games best.
