Andre Iguodala picks Michael Jordan over LeBron James, ’96 Bulls over Warriors as best ever
Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala gave his take on two popular debates, putting Michael Jordan above LeBron James as the greatest of all time, and the 1996 Chicago Bulls over his own Warriors as the best team ever, according to Forbes associate editor Alex Konrad.
Iguodala was attending the 2018 Cloud 100 event put on by Forbes in San Francisco, a celebration of the top 100 cloud companies, when he was asked about the two polarizing debates.
It could be the Illinois native in him that made him pick Jordan over James, despite having matched up against the latter as the primary defender during the past four NBA Finals.
The same could be attributed to the best team discussion, giving the 1996 Bulls the upper edge due to their run of dominance and the three-peat, which the Warriors are still looking to obtain.
While it could be a drop of humility, Iguodala has never been shy to share his opinion on these matters — even if it means sparking even more controversy.
The Warriors will need to come away with a third straight title to rival the dominance of the 1996 Bulls, a team that had a stranglehold on the NBA as the most powerful of the decade.
Golden State can get the same effect by making it four championships in five years, going from the laughingstock of the league to a perennial powerhouse.
