“It’s hard for me to put somebody ahead of LeBron cause LeBron is the best player I’ve seen with my eyes,” he mentioned putting a timeline unfriendly to MJ.

“Trust me I’ve seen all the Michael Jordan stuff, dude is different. I can’t argue with the fact that you think he is the GOAT but in my eyes I say LeBron,” he added, “I always say I’ve been able to see LeBron I was never able to be around and see full games and know all the storylines going into games things like that with Michael Jordan.”

Cunningham, 19, was born in 2001, the year Jordan returned to the NBA to play for the Washington Wizards. On the other hand, James launched his own career in 2003 providing the first pick of the 2021 NBA draft a full view on his career.
