Detroit Pistons forward Bill Laimbeer said LeBron James – not Michael Jordan – is the greatest player of all time.
Laimbeer, who won two consecutive scepters with the Pistons in 1989 and 1990, made the remarks on ESPN First Take.
“I firmly believe that [LeBron James] is the best basketball player in the history of the game. “

“I’ve been pretty consistent on this and LeBron is the best player to ever play in the NBA,” said Laimbeer, who starred in multiple battles with those legendary Bulls and company.
“He is 6’8” (2.03 meters), weighs 285 pounds and plays like a small forward. The most important thing is that since he came to the league, he has always put his teammates to play. He knew how to involve the players to win. That was something Jordan had to learn for a long period, “he added.
Laimbeer is currently a Las Vegas Aces coach at the WNBA. He participated in four All-Star Games as a player.

“If you go for championships, obviously Jordan has more. But I think LeBron would be doing what he does today in any generation,” he said.
