Still The Greatest Ever

By Benjy Lipsman in News on Jun 8, 2011 6:40PM

In sports, memory of one's greatness often fades with time... even for the all-time greats. But even so, we questioned what Michael Jordan's wingman Scottie Pippen was thinking when he recently said that LeBron James might be better than MJ? Even before King James' embarrassing eight point performance last night (Jordan's worst Finals scoring night was 22 points), he took a lot of flack for those words. James himself disagreed with Scottie's assessment. But maybe it's because we don't get to see MJ play anymore that we forget just how spectacular he was and just how incredible it was to watch him work his magic. For those who need a refresher, just watch this video to relive what we got to witness each June for much of the '90's. Until LeBron has hoisted six Larry O'Brien trophies, there is no discussion on who is the greatest.
