If you haven’t watched Sportscenter yet today, you’re probably not aware that Charles Barkley said LeBron James could be better than Michael Jordan.
“”I thought I would never compare somebody to Michael Jordan. But this guy, LeBron James, he does everything well. Michael did everything well. LeBron James is just bigger, stronger, faster. That’s the only difference,” Barkley said during a taping of NBA TV’s “Open Court”.
Honestly, there really isn’t anything wrong with what Barkley said, but any time a prominent basketball figure decides to compare James to Jordan, there’s going to be a reaction, and the response to Barkley’s comments came swiftly on Twitter.
So Charles Barkley think LBJ better than MJ.. I believe Charles still upset with MJ for not letting him win a championship. #Foolish

@espn_firsttake Charles Barkley is right, LeBron can be better than MJ. Same as Barkley CAN be governor of AL, but both have low probability

Personally, I think Charles Barkley isn’t too far off.
If LeBron wins five more championship rings, he could be better than Jordan.
Until then? Let’s let the bling speak for itself, Sir Charles.
