Jordan is simply a better player than Lebron on both ends.

You were spot on with the Oscar/Pippen and comments. I instantly thought of that when he made the comparison.

Pippen is a huge LeBron fan. If LeBron wins multiple NBA titles. NBA.com would put this quote on their official website when LeBron retires.

Pippen and Oscar are saying this stuff because they identify a lot with Lebron because those guys are arguably the most complete players in nba history.

I don't think Pippen said it as a knock to Jordan.

I disagree with what he said of course, but I understand why guys like Pippen and the Big O say stuff like this. Lebron is one of their kind and they like to see a player they identify with get a lot of credit.......

Because Pippen and Oscar feel they are a bit under-rated all time. Pippen always mentions how Bird and Magic played no defense. You can tell he's a little bitter about how he's viewed compared to them.

^This^
I might also add that Pippen was not speaking of rings and career accomplishments but all around game versatility. He specifically said that while MJ is the best scorer, Lebron's impact on offense is more versatile. He implied that, in essence, because of Lebron's court vision and willingness to pass that every player on the court is a threat to score if Lebron has the ball in his hands. MJ was a great passer, but passing/ facilitating was not a 1st instinct with him as it is with Lebron.

i remember watching the finals back in 92, or it might have been 93, and jordan was already being called the greatest ever at that point.

i think if lebron does get one this year and another the year after that similar talk might start to happen.

they are comparable players on both ends of the court.

Lebron has to pass the likes of Bird, Magic, KoBe, Shaq and Duncan before even comparing with MJ

Michael Jordan is number one in PER Rankings. LeBron is a close second. And LeBron just like Jordan led the NBA in Win shares in multiple occasions. I think LeBron has the chance to be a top 5 player of all time at the end of his career. I hope this quote inspire LeBron to have a classic performance againts the Dallas Mavericks in the Finals.

Dirk is better than Larry Bird right now. Larry is old and hasn't played in years.

Well, Pippen always said that Lebron is his favorite player of all time and that Lebron is the evolution of players like him and Magic and so on.
Pippen was courtside, frontrow seats the entire series this time.
