Ex-Bad Boy Piston and current New York Liberty coach Bill Laimbeer threw his hat in the ring of the Lebron versus Jordan debate this morning, stating his opinion: He’ll take LeBron. Laimbeer appeared on the Dan Patrick show and elaborated as to why he would take the King over His Airness:

“There’s no question I would take LeBron James. He can do more. Michael Jordan could score and make big shots and look spectacular at times with wild flying dunks, but LeBron can get you 18 rebounds, get you 15 assists or score 50 if he wants to. The triple threat the he poses is just phenomenal, and the size, he just physically dominates. It’s impressive… Look at what LeBron has in the Finals right now. Could anybody else in the world have led this team of role players to the Finals right now? I don’t think so. Jordan could not have led this team to the Finals. LeBron came into the league knowing how to play basketball and involve his teammates. Jordan had to learn that, and they had to assemble some great teammates around him in order for him to win.”

Laimbeer does have some sour history with Jordan as him and his ‘Bad Boy’ Pistons played Jordan’s Bulls in some great playoff series in the late 80’s and early 90’s, famously walking off the court with time still on the clock after being swept by the Bulls in the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals.
