Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Oscar Robertson Better Than Michael Jordan and LeBron James

by October 03, 2013

The always-opinionated Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said during an ESPN Radio interview on Thursday morning, that he believes Oscar Robertson was a better overall player than Michael Jordan (generally considered the greatest of all time) and LeBron James (the best there is today.) Per Lakers Nation: “LeBron is awesome, MJ was awesome — but I think Oscar Robinson would have kicked them both in the behind, said Abdul-Jabbar when asked about James and Jordan. ‘Absolutely. Oscar was awesome. He had brains. […] He had all the skills. He could rebound and box out guys four and six inches taller than him. He was ruggedly built. He had fluid, quickness, and just understood the game. No flair, he just got the job done every night. Who’s going to average double figures in points, assists and rebounds?'”
