NBA author David Aldridge joined Sports analyst Chris Broussard on “The Last Dance” and his memories from that time. During the conversation, Aldridge was asked the inevitable question – who is the greatest player of all time.
According to him, Michael Jordan is the best player he has ever seen. At the same time, Aldridge admitted that it is difficult to compare the players he saw with people like Bill Russell, Oscar Robertson and Wilt Chamberlain, whom he did not see.
“I didn’t see Bill Russell playing. I can only orient myself based on what people who saw Bill Russell told me about him. People who I respect and who really know the game. And when they say that Bill Russell was so good. I’ll say, “OK, Bill Russell was so good.”
“The best guy I’ve seen in 30 years is Michael Jordan. And it’s not very close to me. You can stand up for LeBron. LeBron is great in his way and Kobe was great in his way. They were and are great all-time player. Michael is the best I’ve ever seen. “
