“After July the first, I just laid it out on the table,” Riley recalled. “LeBron and Chris [Bosh], two of the greatest players in our game. And LeBron, maybe the greatest player of all time, with Dwyane [Wade]. All you have to do is put it on the table.”
James, 35, has been heavily compared to Michael Jordan since the recent release of “The Last Dance,” a documentary series which covers the Chicago Bulls’ 1997-98 season.
Riley, who coached three different teams over the course of Jordan’s time in the league, saw the star guard rip apart opponents up close.
However, the 75-year-old also witnessed James decimate competitors during his time in Miami.
As a matter of fact, many sports pundits believe the forward was at the acme of his career while playing for the Heat.
In his four years with the Heat, the All-Star earned two championships, two regular seasons MVPs, two Finals MVPs and much more.
Over the course of his 17-year career, James has averages of 27.1 points, 7.4 assists and 7.4 rebounds per game.
