PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Khalif Wyatt thinks Lebron James is the best basketball player of all time, and he doesn’t care what you have to say about it.

The Temple star, and Atlantic 10 Player Of The Year was obviously watching Wednesday night’s Heat vs. Bulls game when he tweeted the following:

@KhalifW05: Bron best ever.. please don’t come in my mentions with your opinions.. Thanks lol

Wyatt

He was then questioned, with an obvious reference to Michael Jordan, and Wyatt suggested if championships are the measure of greatness, then the greatest isn’t Jordan:

@KhalifW05: Bill Russell the GOAT then.. RT @Hunitproof: He need six more rings to be the greatest

Truth be told, I’m mostly writing this because I’m a fan of Lebrons and I’m glad Wyatt is taking a stance.

James won his fourth MVP award in five years this season, joining Jordan, Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain as the only players to win four MVPs.
