Stan Van Gundy: “LeBron James is already better than Michael Jordan”
According to Stan Van Gundy, the question isn’t if LeBron James can be as good as Michael Jordan, but rather how much better can King James be than Michael Jordan? On the Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz, a Miami radio show and podcast, Van Gundy told Le Batard that “LeBron James is already better than Michael Jordan.”
Stan Van Gundy has never been shy from expressing his opinions. When it was revealed to him that Dwight Howard had asked for his firing, he told the media, “I was told it was true by people in our management, right from the top.” The difference between his comments from the past in comparison to his comments regarding LeBron now, is that he is talking as an NBA analyst providing his expert opinion to the public. Van Gundy seems to truly feel LeBron is the better player. This will surely be criticized by members of his own ilk and the sports bologsphere.
He is one of the first notable NBA minds to express this proclamation. Only Stan knows if he really means this, but by the way his brother and him go about making ground breaking statements, I’m sure he means this with full sincerity.
