Stephon Marbury was interviewed by Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson from Heavy.com last month and he explained why Michael Jordan is better than LeBron James.
“In the NBA, in America, you’re already recognized by winning championships,” Marbury told Robinson.
“So if you don’t win championships you know, you’re not regarded as the best ever but, LeBron is 3-6. How do you compare 3 with 6-0 with Michael Jordan? Where does that even make sense at? You can’t talk about the game, you can’t talk about how many L’s you got in the Finals. And the numbers — you can’t compare on this Earth with 6-0 and 3-something…there’s no way in this world you can do it.”
Marbury is a two-time NBA All Star who played in the league for 12 years, averaging 19.3 points, 7.6 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 37.7 minutes over 846 games with the Timberwolves, Nets, Suns, Knicks and Celtics. He appeared on the Scoop B Radio Podcast back in April and also weighed in on the subject:
“Jordan shouldn’t even be ranked. It should be Kobe, then LeBron and then you can pick guys after that. There’s just no comparison man. It’s not the same. It’s just different worlds. Different mentalities. I don’t know why Jordan’s name is mentioned in the same conversation sometimes. I’ll clear that up real quick… there’s really no need to talk about that,” Marbury said.
“Jordan is not from Earth. LeBron’s a great player. Don’t get me wrong. A great, great player. Unbelievable. Amazing. But better than Michael Jordan? – it’s not even the same. It’s just different. In fact, it needs no explanation or explaining because we can’t talk about Jordan’s game. It’s like we need to talk about what people are not,” Marbury concluded.
