LeBron James is one of the best players in the NBA league today. No wonder he is often compared to Michael Jordan. However, for Dennis Rodman, MJ's former running mate the Chicago Bulls legend is restless.
"You know what, LeBron's doing one thing that I always said that Michael Jordan never did," Rodman told ESPN. "He never rested. He played every game.
Dennis Rodman added that not resting is easier for LeBron James because the team and the league need him. However, the Cleveland Cavaliers player is also aware of this that's why he is doing crazy stuff like "bitching and complaining."
According to the report, Michael Jordan played the full slate nine times in his NBA career. Meanwhile, LeBron James has never played all 82 games this season and missed six of the Cavalier's 78 games this season.
While Dennis Rodman is entitled to his opinion, some fired back for his mean comments on LeBron James absences on the NBA league. Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr thinks that Dennis Rodman should not speak about missing games. He was suspended for 15 games a year and has plenty of rest too. Kerr added that Dennis Roman took a night off whenever he wanted to, so he should not complain.
There is no doubt that for some NBA fans and enthusiasts Michael Jordan will always be the best basketball player of all times despite the success of the players in the current generation. According to Fox Sports, there are a lot of things that LeBron James should do to surpass MJ.
LeBron James has to win at least four NBA championship. The Cavs superstar has already three championships while Michael Jordan has six. Four more championships will also mean that James will have four more Finals MVP, if he makes this, he will break Jordan's other record.
However, LeBron James has already surpassed Michael Jordan in one field. James surpassed Jordan as the highest-paid player in a single season after signing a $100 million deal, Rolling Stone reported.
