"Michael Jordan is probably the greatest scorer to play the game but I may go as far as to say LeBron James may be the greatest player to ever play the game because he is so potent offensively that not only can he score at will but he keeps everybody involved. You have to be on your P's and Q's on defense. No guy on the basketball court is a threat to score with LeBron James out there. Not only will LeBron dominate from the offensive end as well, but he's also doing it on the defensive end, which really makes him the complete package. He's able to get in those passing lanes, shoot those gaps and create transition opportunities where he is pretty much unstoppable."
This obviously caused quite a hullabaloo among Chicago Bulls fans and bball enthusiasts alike. Pippen, on defense, no pun intended, tweeted:
“For all of you that don't know, I played the game you keep watching and cheering”
Ouch. I mean fans and enthusiastic aren’t the only ones who disagree. Horace Grant, ex-teammate sharing 3 of those rings with the Bulls commented "Pip is my man, and we will always be close but I totally disagree”
Pippen later tweeted, "Don't get me wrong, MJ was and is the greatest. But LeBron could by all means get to his level someday. "
So, who wins?
