David Blatt as part of the Partner TV expert panel on the documentary series, “The Last Dance”, explained why he considers Michael Jordan bigger than LeBron James, Israel Hayom relays.

“Michael Jordan is bigger than LeBron James,” he pointed out on Sunday commenting on the latest episodes made available, “he won the most championships with one single team and did not focus on the “I” but on the “us”. But surely, in terms of ability and influence, they are both included in the top five best players in history.”

As the Cleveland Cavaliers head coach, the American-Israeli coached James between 2014 and 2016. The 2014 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champion returned to Europe taking over Darussafaka and afterward Olympiacos before retiring from coaching.

He recently told Eurohoops in a long interview about his coaching career, that he intends to write a book and it seems that the chapters about Cleveland will be quite interesting.
