Dennis Rodman slams LeBron James, says he’d be ‘average’ in the ’90s

It looks like attention-hungry Dennis Rodman is becoming slightly jealous of LeBron James’ success, which includes scoring the most points in a single game and earning three MVP titles. It appears as if James’ success is getting under Rodman’s skin.

It’s really not a comparison. If LeBron was playing in the late ’80s and early ’90s, he would be just an average player,” Rodman said Friday on “The Dan Patrick Show.” “To do what Michael has done … what he did was more charisma, there was more articulating and stuff like that. LeBron is more like … there’s no flash to his game. He’s a great player, don’t get me wrong, he’s a h**l of player, I’ll give him that. But to me Scottie (Pippen) and Michael are probably the two best one-two punches I’ve ever seen.” Rodman, who won three NBA titles Jordan’s Bulls from 1996-98, claims that a 28-year-old Michael Jordan would average at least 40 points per game in today’s NBA.

Sounding like a disgruntled father who is jealous of his son’s benefit due to progression, Rodman continued: “LeBron came into the age of the game at a perfect time. Michael came into the game when back then you could hit people, knock him down, shoot a free throw and get back up,” Rodman said. “And LeBron can’t do that. All they do today is (complain) about a foul. All they do is (complain).” And if you’re wondering why he’s discussing the matter, Rodman said: “I’m just sick and tired of people comparing (James) to Michael Jordan. It’s a whole different era, man.”

Rodman also said that if the Bulls from the ’90s would be able to compete with today’s Heat, it would be an easy win for the Bulls. ”It would be no contest. The Heat has better talent than we had, but we had smarter players,” Rodman said. “That’s the only thing we had, smarter players. … I would take Bosh out of his dαmn game easy. That’s not even a problem. And how would Dwyane Wade match up with Scottie Pippen? Really? And Scottie Pippen would guard LeBron easy. And how are you going to cover those two guys (Jordan and Pippen)?”
