Jim Boeheim Used to Think Michael Jordan Was the Best Player He's Ever Seen, But After Coaching LeBron, Boeheim's Not So Sure Anymore

Jim Boeheim to EPSN’s Colin Cowherd about coaching LeBron in the Olympics:

He’s a leader. He gets on the court, he tells people what to do … this guy can guard five [positions] … put him on anybody, he can guard him. I always felt Michael Jordan was the best player I’ve ever seen … I didn’t think it was close … and I’m not so sure anymore … this guy is 6-9, 260 pounds and he’s getting better … I know we’ve had great, great players through the years. He’s like Magic Johnson with Michael Jordan-type skills as well.”

LeBron is coming off one of the best years in basketball history, and he only turns 28 this December. He’s just entering his prime. Forget the 1992 Dream Team vs. the 2012 Olympic Team debate … what about in a game of 1 on 1, 1992 Michael Jordan vs. 2012 LeBron James?
