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.”

Arthur made the decision to stay in each of the past two summers. This summer, he signed a three-year, $23 million contract with the Nuggets. He could have gotten more money elsewhere. The Spurs, Clippers and Wizards all were interested in him. “I felt comfortable here,” he said, explaining his decision. “I felt comfortable with what we’ve got going. They asked me if I wanted to get traded last year at the trade deadline and I said ‘No, I like what we have going on.’ I could have gotten more money if I would have went somewhere else, but me and my wife we love it here, I love what’s going on and I love what we’re building with. So it was an easy decision.”
