That’s what I read into this interview. This morning Scottie Pippen was on ESPN’s Mike and Mike in the Morning talk show and had some extremely flattering things to say about Lebron.

Now, Lebron is good, real good actually and yes I wear his jersey to show how much I enjoy the electricity and athletic ability the young man possesses. But, having conversations about being better than MJ when he hasn’t won a single championship yet?

Slightly premature? You tell me.
