Boy, if this isn’t a bunch of he said, she said.
With a hat tip to Daily Sports Club, here we have former Miami Heat great Alonzo Mourning speaking at a Microsoft store opening in Florida recently. In a Q&A session, a fan poised the standard “Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James” question and unlike most, Mourning didn’t deflect it, well, at least not initially.
Zo begins to reflect on a conversation he had with Scottie Pippen where Pippen told him that LeBron would “kick MJ’s ass”, which is greeted with a massive round of applause. Of course, being in Miami, would Alonzo really have much choice to say anything else? I mean, not to discredit Zo’s point, but he is a member of the Heat organization.
Either way – somebody better get the keys to the bus that Mourning just rolled over Pippen.
You can watch Mourning back up over Pippen a few times below:
So what do you think, folks? Does Pippen have a point? Does LeBron take down Jordan in a 1-on-1 battle? Or does Jordan have his way with James? It’s somewhat of a tired argument that will never have a true answer, but, still interesting to hear comments from people like Pippen, though, he’s not exactly dripping in scouting talent either.
