Hakeem Olajuwon spent many years playing against Michael Jordan. And a few years back, he helped LeBron James work on his post moves during the offseason. So he knows both players well. And in his opinion, it's not fair to compare the two because he says that MJ was "far superior" to LBJ.

"When people start comparing [LeBron] with Jordan then that's not a fair comparison," he told CNBC recently. "Jordan was a far more superior player in a very tough league, he was very creative…That's not taking anything away from LeBron, because he is a great player, but it is not a fair comparison because Jordan is a far superior player."

"Far superior"? Feel free to argue amongst yourselves once you check out the clip of The Dream addressing the MJ vs. LeBron debate.
