‘Bron Has No Equal’: Shannon Sharpe Argues for Gary Paton’s Comments on LeBron James vs Michael Jordan
Understandably, Payton’s latest claim sparked a massive debate in the NBA community. The latest to react to the same were Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless from Undisputed.
The former Ravens’ tight end reasoned why the Glove’s claims are indeed true. Sharpe said:
“I think sometimes if that you say well this guy can do this better than that guy it’s like almost like you’re knocking the other guy. Michael Jordan is historically great. Very few guys have been able to score the ball like he can, he’s an assassin. But if you just look at it, Jordan had averaged more points but LeBron averaged more rebounds, more assists, shot a high percentage from the field, shot a high percentage from the three. It is what it is, Skip, so GP (Gary Payton) is right on. As an overall player, I believe he’s a better player, but as an overall player – complete – Bron has no equal.”
