Ray Allen played alongside LeBron James and even won a ring, but that doesn’t mean he believes he is the greatest NBA player of all time.
Allen may have played with the very best version of LeBron, but his opinion on the greatest player in the league remains unchanged.
In a video posted on TikTok, Ray Allen can be seen debunking a fan’s argument as to why his former Miami Heat teammate LeBron James isn’t the greatest of all time.
“He can score and pass it,” the fan said in the video. “Is he a great free throw shooter? Is he a great three-point shooter? Is he a great dribbler?” Allen responds, adding, “So you’re saying he’s the GOAT, but he ain’t even the greatest in all them categories. You know who it is? MJ.”
The teenagers in the video came into the discussion thinking it was LeBron, but by the end of it, they would be left in complete shock.
The 46-year-old played two seasons with LeBron on the Miami Heat including in 2013 when they won the NBA championship.
In an appearance on the James Posey Podcast in 2020, Allen admitted that he was “scared to death” when he played against Jordan and the Chicago Bulls in 1997.
