The 1998 Chicago Bulls documentary The Last Dance just premiered on ESPN last night, and it's got a lot of people talking about Michael Jordan, including those who believe Lebron James may have better stats than Jordan.
Kendrick Perkins, who played in the NBA from 2003-2018 and won an NBA title with the Boston Celtics in 2008, had some interesting things to say regarding Bron and Jordan.

Oh my bad Good Morning my good People!!!
The expectations of Bron is like nothing we’ve ever seen in NBA history.— Kendrick Perkins (@KendrickPerkins) April 20, 2020
If Bron scores 63 and 49 in a series and gets swept, every sports network is talking about his inability to get it done, while MJ is getting praised and awarded player of the game in losses.
When LeBron James was 22 years old he took a Cavs team to the NBA Finals without a Certified Robin!!! Carry on...— Kendrick Perkins (@KendrickPerkins) April 20, 2020
The second @espn announced they were making The Last Dance the next name that came to mind was LeBron James! That speaks volumes — him and MJ are tied together forever!— Kendrick Perkins (@KendrickPerkins) April 21, 2020
Do you think Lebron James is better than Michael Jordan?
