Bill Laimbeer would take LeBron James over Michael Jordan

New York Liberty head coach Bill Laimbeer joined The Dan Patrick Show on Thursday morning, and he didn’t mince words when the conversation inevitably drifted to the NBA’s inescapable binary question: Jordan or LeBron? “There’s no question I would take LeBron James,” Laimbeer said. “He can do more. Michael Jordan could score and make big shots and look spectacular at times with wild-flying dunks, but LeBron can get you 18 rebounds. LeBron can get you 15 assists if he chooses to, or he can score 50 if he wanted to. “So the triple threat he poses is just phenomenal, and then the size that he’s got — he just physically dominates. It’s impressive.”

The weather in New York has been good lately. A little bit too hot, if you ask Lance Thomas, but good nonetheless. His summer has been even better. “Oh my summer’s been good,” Thomas told Elite Sports NY during Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson Block Party in Brooklyn, N.Y. “I got to go fishing a little bit. I’m here in Brooklyn, where I was born. I’ve been enjoying every bit of my summer, but I’m ready to get back and play.”

Among the Knicks’ additions was former Suns coach Jeff Hornacek. Thomas said he spoke to his new head coach shortly after Hornacek signed his three-year deal this off-season. “I like him. He wants to win,” he said. “When you’re talking to him, you can tell that he didn’t come here just to get a job. He came here to help us win this season. So I’m on board with that, and I think everyone on the team who has met him already is on board with that. So I’m ready to work.”
