Hakeem Olajuwon Says Michael Jordan ‘Far Superior’ to LeBron James (VIDEO)

Houston Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon was conducting an television interview (seen below) and was asked if LeBron James is one of the greatest players of all time. He immediately responded with “Yes.” Then, unprompted, expanded on his answer and brought up comparisons to Michael Jordan, which he said were unfair. Hear his answer in the video link below.

And Rockets’ fans, stick with the video after that answer as he recounts his greatest basketball memory.

Hakeem Olajuwon Says Michael Jordan ‘Far Superior’ to LeBron James (VIDEO).

Is this just a guy backing a guy who played in his era, versus the guy playing now?

He does mention how tough the league was when Jordan and Olajuwon played. He has worked with LeBron James on the court, during previous offseasons, so he definitely knows his game pretty well.

I imagine this gets more run than it probably deserves – especially since Jordan is better than James – see what I did there!
