LeBron James Can’t Be Compared to Michael and Magic, Says NBA Legend Sam Perkins

LeBron James

For the first time since 2005, LeBron James will not be part of the NBA postseason. For the first time since 2010, we won’t see LeBron compete in the NBA Finals in June.

LeBron just recently passed Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list but won’t be passing MJ any time soon in championship rings. NBA legend Sam Perkins on the Scoop B & Reg Podcast gave his take on the comparison between LeBron, Michael, and Magic, he insisted that James won’t be able to match Michael when it comes to championships.


Perkins of course teammates with Jordan on the 1982 national championship North Carolina team. They also competed against each other when the Bulls faced the SuperSonics in the 1996 NBA Finals.

LeBron’s first season with the Lakers was more dramatic and confusing than glamorous and glorifying, but the franchise will surely be aggressive in how they approach this coming offseason, particularly in free agency.

As James wraps up year 16, he’s already promised the Laker faithful that the drought will not continue.

Ray Allen recently commented on the unfairness of the MJ/LeBron debates. They won’t be dying down anytime soon as LeBron looks to complete the last phase of his all-time great career.
