REPORT: LeBron & Jordan’s Camps Are Beefing With Each Other
It looks like the Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James beef has reached another level than the usual fan bases arguing back and forth with each other.
LeBron’s James’ camp and Michael Jordan’s camp have some reported beef with each other and it has everything to do some video footage of His Airness that LeBron’s crew wanted to use for a documentary.
“They hate each other – these two camps,” a source told Richard Johnson of Page Six.
The report goes on to say that rejection from Jordan’s camp lead to LeBron making the bold claim of crowning himself the GOAT after defeating the 73-9 Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals.
Without the Jordan footage, the film about the 1984 NBA draft, in which Jordan was selected third, had to be changed, and it became a three-part documentary about the civic activism of basketball players, “Shut Up and Dribble,’’ which Showtime aired in November.
Sources say that’s why King James said a month ago that winning the 2016 NBA championship for Cleveland, coming back after being down three games to one, “made me the greatest of all time.”
“LeBron was pissed at Michael Jordan — that’s why he lashed out,” one source told me.
Richard Johnson stated that an NBA insider revealed to him, “LeBron’s people wanted an extensive amount of footage of Michael, and the league said, ‘You have to ask Michael.’ And his people said ‘no.’”
Jordan’s camp didn’t respond to the report, but LeBron’s adviser Adam Mendelsohn denied the rejection of the request for Jordan footage was an issue: “LeBron has absolutely zero problem with Michael Jordan controlling his content, and didn’t even know it was requested.”
