WEEI’s Ben Rohrbach uncovered an interview Gerald Wallace did with Fox Alabama where he was asked to compare LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan:
Jordan never had an off night,” Wallace told myfoxal.com. “He found many ways to contribute to the team, and I’d say Kobe [Bryant] is pretty much the same. You can put Lebron in that category. I think what separates LeBron from Kobe and Michael Jordan right now is that he doesn’t have the attitude or the fight that those guys had. For me, he’s not willing to take over a game, demand a game or put the game all on his shoulders. I would like to see him get to that one day, but right now I don’t think he has that, and that’s what Michael Jordan and even Kobe has.”
Sorry Crash, but I’m going to disagree with you on this one. Criticizing LeBron’s fight may have had justification back in 2010. But anyone who witnessed James dominate Game 6 of the 2012 ECF in Boston cannot say the guy lacks fight. The man’s legacy was on the line in that game and he singlehandedly carried his team to victory.
Regarding Kobe, I’m pretty sure he had an off-night on June 17, 2008.
