The G.O.A.T in the Game-Show host game, has an opinion about the G.O.A.T in the basketball game!
Earlier today, Jordan Buscarini of Castle Country Radio KAOL 750AM in Utah had the pleasure of interviewing the legendary TV show host Bob Barker. Barker is one of the most famous people to ever grace the television screen and he has been a part of peoples lives for generations.
During the show, Jordan asked Bob who was his pre-season favorite and Bob responded with “I don’t know how anyone can beat Miami.”
“LeBron James is probably the best basketball player to ever live, he has it all, he’s tall, powerful, fast, really fast, he can shoot from the outside, he can pass and a good rebounder, what else do you want from a player.”
“He was a man amongst boys in high school and I wouldn’t want to bet against any team he was on.”
Bob also notes that LeBron, Blake Griffin and Kobe Bryant are the guys he likes watching. Also notes that the game is different now than it was in his era. “It was a different game” and compares the NBA players now to the Harlem Globetrotters of his era.
Bob Barker is 89 years of age and he has seen everyone play in the NBA so his opinion does have some clout.
As discussed in Episode 118 of the #believethehype NBA Podcast, personally, I believe that Micheal Jordan is the best NBA player to ever play the game. LeBron has had a phenomenal career to this point but its unfair to compare him to greats while his career is still in progress. He is so far and ahead of his peers that are in his age range its not even funny it has gotten to the point in his career that hes now chasing legends like Kobe Bryant, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Micheal Jordan.
