LeBron James is once again back in the news getting blasted for something he said, but this time it was for something basketball related.
Former NBA player and ESPN analyst Jay Williams took aim at the Los Angeles Lakers star over comments he made about not ever returning to “100%” after his injury.
“I think that LeBron James is the greatest player of all time. I’ve said it, I still stand by it but hearing LeBron talk about this the other day … as a guy who played for the (Chicago) Bulls, who’s watched Michael Jordan for a long time, I’ve never heard MJ say something like that,” Williams said.
“MJ just wouldn’t say anything at all.”
James returned to the floor Friday after an injury sidelined him for 20 games over six weeks, which is by far the most time he has missed in his career due to an injury.
“I knew I wasn’t going to get back to 100%. It’s impossible,” James said via ESPN. “I don’t think I will ever get back to 100% in my career.”
