Former Bull B.J. Armstrong on LeBron: ‘Stop Chasing Jordan, It’s Unattainable & Something You Can’t Achieve’
Colin Cowherd: If LeBron Wins 2 More Titles, He’ll Equal or Surpass Jordan (Video)
On Tuesday, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James responded to one of his campers’ questions on what motivates him now after he won a championship for Cleveland, and the 4-time MVP said Michael Jordan.
“My motivation,” James says, “is this ghost I’m chasing. The ghost played in Chicago,” according to Sports Illustrated’s Lee Jenkins.
“My career is totally different than Michael Jordan’s. What I’ve gone through is totally different than what he went through. What he did was unbelievable, and I watched it unfold. I looked up to him so much. I think it’s cool to put myself in position to be one of those great players, but if I can ever put myself in position to be the greatest player, that would be something extraordinary.”
Also on Tuesday, Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd argued that LeBron & MJ had 3 phases to their career, with LeBron just starting his. And if he won 2 more titles, he would equal or surpass Michael Jordan as the better player.
