Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is considered one of the most, if not the most, dominant and iconic NBA players of his generation. Naturally, comparisons are drawn between him and Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan.
Former NBA player Al Harrington shared his view on how LeBron’s era is different from that of MJ. He pointed out that back in the day opposing players had a completely different relationship between them.
Instead of being buddies, which is a common thing now, they were rather like enemies and would not spend offseason together.
Via Sam Leweck of Lakers Daily:
“Michael Jordan came up in the era where everybody hated each other,” Harrington said. “They did not f— with each other, was no homeboys in the offseason, was no, ‘Let’s go to the clubs in the summer and go holler at some chicks.’ It was none of that. … When they played, it was war. LeBron has dominated an era of his little bros. They all his little bros, everybody. Who he had it with? Who? What star has LeBron had it with? What team has LeBron had it with?”
