Alonzo Mourning: Scottie Pippen thinks LeBron James would 'kick Michael Jordan's ass'
Former NBA big man Alonzo Mourning was on hand to celebrate a recent Microsoft store opening in Miami when he began fielding questions from the crowd.
Naturally, the conversation quickly turned to Heat star LeBron James, and then eventually to King James versus Michael Jordan.
Apparently, Mourning had a recent conversation with one of Jordan's former teammates, Scottie Pippen. And of course they talked about James vs. Jordan, as well. So, Mourning decided to reveal one of the takeaways of that conversation to the eager crowd when prompted.
"I'm gonna tell you what Scottie said. Scottie said that LeBron would kick MJ's ass," said Mourning.
The seven-time All-Star then went ahead and agreed with Pippen's assessment, and offered a brief justification for his answer, much to the delight of the pro-Heat audience.
Maybe Mourning truly believes that, or maybe he was just playing to the crowd, but either way, the debate about which one is better continues to rage on.
