Jim Boeheim Thinks LeBron James Could be Better Than Michael Jordan

Syracuse University head coach Jim Boeheim, who has been a longtime assistant for USA Basketball, has observed an endless amount of talent during his career. And according to the uber-experienced coach, Michael Jordan always was the best player he’d ever seen play, by a mile. Well, that was until the 2012 version of LeBron James arrived. Via Syracuse.com: “‘I’ve always thought Michael Jordan was the best player that I’ve ever seen,’ Boeheim said. ‘I always have and I didn’t think it was close. I’m not so sure any more. And I love Michael Jordan. I’m not so sure anymore. This guy is 6-foot-9 and 260 pounds, and he’s getting better. He works on his game. His shooting is getting better. He’s a phenomenal, phenomenal basketball player. I love this game; I love the history of this game. I know we’ve had great, great players through the years. He’s like Magic Johnson with Michael Jordan-type skills as well.'”
