Tiger Woods on who is better: Michael Jordan or LeBron James?

As long as there is a sport, there will be debates about who is the best. We all have certain preferences and reasons why we think someone is the best. One of the biggest debates is the one inside the NBA. Most of the debate is mainly about two big names: LeBron James and Michael Jordan.

The two of them are some other dimension for the others. The great legend of golf and sports, Tiger Woods, just spoke about it a few years ago. Woods gave his opinion on who is the best in the NBA.
“They're both great in different ways.

If you look at MJ, he was a prolific scorer and played defense like no other, always first-team all-defense, but LeBron is different. He's like a hybrid of MJ and Magic (Johnson), which is so different because he's bringing the ball up a lot.

MJ never really did that. I mean, he had Pip (Scottie Pippen) as a point forward a lot of times, and you would think that's kind of LeBron-ish, but they're very different in how they help both teams”. - Woods said.

Woods believes that Michael Jordan had a special dominance, in another way.

Nevertheless, he praised both of them and everything they gave to basketball as a sport. "What MJ did, getting to the Finals and dominating the league like he did, he did it in a different way than LeBron's doing it. Just because of the nature of their bodies, their builds and their game and their mental make-up.

But at the end of the day, they both win. They're both guys that we look at and say it's unbelievable what they're doing. They're just changing the game, the game how it's played. We didn't know it could be played that way and they both have done it." Respect should be shown to both of them for all the effort and success they have achieved.
