Then, Charles Barkley --
"He'll never be Jordan," Barkley told 790 the Ticket in Miami earlier in the week. "This clearly takes him out of the conversation. He can win as much as he wants to.Not surprising, coming from Barkley. Jordan, however, doesn't usually speak up about much of anything in the press. So it's worth noting that he said something on the topic. He tried to come off as non-judgmental, but still closed out his quote sounding like an elder shaking his head at how the times have changed.
"There would have been something honorable about staying in Cleveland and trying to win it as 'The Man' ... LeBron, if he would've in Cleveland, and if he could've got a championship there, it would have been over the top for his legacy, just one in Cleveland. No matter how many he wins in Miami, it clearly is Dwyane Wade's team."
I could never imagine Magic, Larry or Michael in any other jerseys ... let alone all in the same jersey. How the times have changed ...
