Charles Oakley Reveals Why He Would Rather Play With LeBron James Than Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan and LeBron James are often compared to each other due to their greatness, but the two legends are nothing alike. They have so many different aspects, and one obvious difference is their style of play.
Jordan was always seen as a supremely confident scorer who was always in attack mode at all times. LeBron, on the other hand, is known for making the right basketball play and giving his teammates extra shots before creating his own.
Jordan’s former teammate Charles Oakley is well aware of their glaring differences. With that in mind, the former NBA defensive stalwart now shared that he would rather play with LeBron than Jordan when making his appearance on Showtime Basketball’s “KG Certified”.
“They asked me, ‘Who would you rather play with, LeBron or Mike?’ I said, ‘LeBron James, but Michael Jordan is my best friend.’ Mike ain’t passing me the ball. He don’t care if I get a shot today or tomorrow.”
