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.”

Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: After an NBA review, @Bobby Marks interpretation is correct: Golden State is eligible to sign Andrew Bogut as a free agent.
“It’s a big jump for me. I hope I’m going to adjust well and I’m going to start to play well as soon as possible,” said Bogdanovic, a 6-8 forward who is in the final year of his three-year deal and will become a restricted free agent this summer. “I thought I was going to be traded. When I saw that Washington was interested in me I was cheering over there to be traded here because I know how they play right now. They need someone to score off the bench.”
Bogadanovic averaged a career-high 14.2 points and shot 35.7% from three-point range with Brooklyn, starting 54 games. Otto Porter starts at his position in Washington. “It’s not going to be a big adjustment for me because also in Europe I started many times from the bench even when I was one of the best players on the team,” Bogdanovic said before coming to the NBA in 2014. “Sometimes I like more to start from the bench so I can be more aggressive.”
