Los Angeles Clippers’ Head Coach Tyronn Lue explains how the two GOAT candidates Michael Jordan and LeBron James are very similar.
Tyronn Lue is a man with a very impressive resume. He has 3 NBA titles to his name. Ty Lue won two of his titles playing alongside the late Kobe Bryant, and his third title coaching the King, LeBron James.
In his career, Ty Lue has worked with the best of the best. He has worked with Kobe, LeBron, and even with His Airness, Michael Jordan, when they both played for the Washington Wizards together. Ty Lue has also worked with some very impressive people, including Doc Rivers, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Kyrie Irving, and quite a few more.
Tyronn Lue elaborates on how LeBron James and Michael Jordan are not that different
Since Tyronn Lue has shared the space with probably both the greatest players to ever play, he knows more about the two than a regular Joe would. According to the Clippers’ Head Coach, the two GOAT candidates are not that different from each other.
“[They’re] the same, they both wanted to win and would do anything it took to win. I thought they did a great job, both of those guys did a great job just to galvanize the team and bringing everyone together, making everyone feel a part of it.”
One would assume being such huge superstars would make the two of them feel like they’re above the game, or their teammates, but according to Tyronn Lue, the case was the opposite.
“You would think when you are dealing with guys that are sometimes bigger than the game, you would think that they would kind of just stay to themselves and do their own thing, but they were very great at just bringing everybody in and making everybody feel a part of it.”

LeBron James is now aiming to close the gap between his titles and MJ’s as he attempts to win his fifth this season. One of the biggest challenges LeBron would face is possibly Tyronn Lue and his Clippers, who are considered as their biggest rivals in the West.
