Michael Jordan is certainly one of the most iconic basketball players to have ever stepped foot inside a basketball court. He is also no stranger to setting records. It seems Ric Flair commented on the ongoing debate between Ric Flair and Michael Jordan.
Jordan is still the king when it comes to being the richest NBA star in the history of the sport. He earned more in his business ventures than he did during his time as an active NBA player. His net worth was said to be over $2 billion.
On the other hand, LeBron James is also touted as one of the all-time greats in the world of professional basketball. James has broken numerous records during his career and is always compared with Jordan as far as being the GOAT of basketball is concerned.
While speaking with Mark Madden for the 16th episode of ‘Ric Flair Wooooo Nation UNCENSORED, WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair stated that he believes Lebron James is the true GOAT of the NBA and not Michael Jordan.
Well, I hope it’s in LA. But it could be in Cleveland, you never know,” Ric Flair told Mark Madden about LeBron’s future. “The nice thing about LeBron is being the greatest of all time. Which I still think he is. I love Michael Jordan. But look at the stats and he just keeps playing. I mean, he’s averaging 29 points this year. Guys, come on, 29 what, 9 and 8 or something like that.
Michael Jordan will continue to be discussed when it comes to being one of the all-time greats and LeBron James being compared to him is certainly huge praise as well.
