Could this be the end of the Michael Jordan and LeBron comparisons?
Before the Sunday night football matchup between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings, NBC aired a promo with Michael Jordan talking about the GOAT debate between Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady when we all thought he was talking about him and LeBron.
"A lot of talk going on these days about who is the greatest ever. "About who has the titles, the raw talent, the most clutch moments. I get it. It’s a tough call. I mean, even the jersey numbers are the same."
Well, LeBron chimed in on Twitter thinking that the "Greatest Of All Time" discussion Jordan was talking about was between those two.
IM READY!!!! Oh my bad I thought, maybe u were, umm never mind back to my regular schedule program
The promo ran days after James passed Dirk Nowitzki for sixth on the NBA's all-time scoring list in Saturday's loss to the Spurs. James, who also surpassed Shaquille O'Neal for sixth on the all-time field goals list during the game.
The GOAT debate is something that NBA fans will never stop talking about and will continue long after LeBron is out of the NBA.
