Found March 30, 2013 on Beyond The Buzzer:
Following Miami’s 108-89 win in New Orleans Friday, in which LeBron James scored 23 points in less than six minutes, former NBA player and current Hornets head coach, Monty Williams, was asked whether LeBron dominates games similar to how Michael Jordan did. Williams, who played against MJ, gave a fairly straight forward answer and dissed the league’s current players. According to Joe Gerrity, Hornets247.com (h/t CBS Sports): I asked Monty whether or not LeBron dominates games the same way that Jordan does, given that he played against both, and the response was stellar– “Jordan played against men. LeBron plays against young boys. That’s the difference.”
