Earlier this week, Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim set a Kobe Bryant-esque wildfire when he suggested that LeBron James might be better than Michael Jordan. Of course, similar to the Dream Team versus 2012 Team USA debate, people are chiming in with their opinion. The latest to do so is LeBron's teammate and good friend, Dwyane Wade. While attending his adult basketball camp, Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel brought up the comparison and here's what he had to say:
“He’s on that level,” Wade said, “but he has a lot more to do to get there. I think he understands he has an unbelievable opportunity to be one of the greatest to play this game. But that’s when he gets done playing, he can say that.
“Right now, he has so much more to cover in his career. He’s just getting started at the same time when Michael kind of just got started. We’ll see how it all shakes out. I hope it shakes out the same way. I’ll be a very happy man.”
As a friend of Bron Bron, it's good to see Wade not try and sugarcoat his opinion. LeBron isn't on Michael Jordan's level yet, but it's sure going to be fun seeing his career play out.
