Fox Sports’ “Undisputed” decided to bring up the classic LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan debate featuring a special guest: Eddie House. LeBron’s former teammate.
House says James can’t be considered the greatest of all time since he “quit” on the team in the 2011 Finals against the Mavericks.
From Eddie House:
“I can’t get over the fact he didn’t show up in Dallas. Not only because I was on the team, but the fact he was the best player and everybody was dependent on him to show up and do what he does, and he was M.I.A. He had a bad series. Jordan never had that. People killed James Harden for having a bad series last year … but you going to say somebody who quit in the Finals, [at] the end of everything, when all the marbles are on the table, that he’s the greatest of all time? I can’t buy it.”
LeBron has even made fun of his own performance from the 2011 Finals, tweeting this back in the day.

This is clearly a made for TV segment, great material to bring up LeBron quitting. You can watch the piece below. Great advertising for another fake debate show.
