An old article where Michael Jordan dissed Lebron James before he was drafted has leaked. In the article Michael Jordan insults Lebron James skill on the basketball court, and says he’s just been playing against “kids who are probably under 6 feet tall”. Jordan even went as far as to say Lebron James would be one of the worst small forwards or shooting guards in the NBA.
As we know, although Michael Jordan was great on the basketball court, his skills at seeing talent in other players has been largely sub par. Jordan is the mastermind behind drafting one of the worst Number 1 picks ever in Kwame Brown.
Given his track record, it’s not surprising to see Michael Jordan dissed Lebron James before he was drafted.
