Allen Iverson believes LeBron James is a better player than Michael Jordan.

Jordan vs. LeBron has been one of the biggest debates in all of sports for more than a decade, and now the NBA legend has weighed in. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“As much as I love Michael Jordan, Lebron James is the one…that motherf***er is the one,” Iverson said while talking with Fat Joe, according to TMZ. You can watch his full comments below.

I have to agree with Iverson. In fact, I’m not sure how you couldn’t agree with Iverson when it comes to who is better.

Yes, Michael Jordan has six rings, and LeBron only has three. We all know that, we understand that and nobody is debating it.

However, the NBA has changed a lot since Michael Jordan dominated it with the Chicago Bulls. Jordan played against players who are laughable athletes compared to the players out there today.

Just watch highlights from right now and then watch some from 20+ years ago. It’s not even comparable.

LeBron James is also a physical freak of nature. He’s bigger and substantially stronger than Michael Jordan could have ever dreamed of being.

Now, you can argue that Michael Jordan was a better competitor, but when it comes to actual basketball talent, the Lakers star is without question better from a pure talent standpoint.
