Chris Broussard Disagrees With Kevin Garnett's Comments On Stephen Curry: "There's No Michael Jordan Of This Generation."

Chris Broussard Disagrees With Kevin Garnett's Comments On Stephen Curry: "There's No Michael Jordan Of This Generation."

Whenever Michael Jordan's name pops up, everybody is ready to debate. The Chicago Bulls legend set the blueprint for superstars that came after him, including Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. Most players have tried to emulate what he did but so far nobody has actually done it. 

Some could LeBron did it and actually surpassed MJ, but for a big chunk of fans, His Airness is still the GOAT. That's why many analysts use him as an example of what a megastar should be right now. Recently, one legend named Stephen Curry as the Jordan of his generation. 

2008 NBA champion Kevin Garnett picked the Golden State Warriors as the Jordan of this generation, but not everybody agreed with that notion. Fox Sports analyst Chris Broussard disagreed with those remarks, but he didn't mention another player as the modern-day MJ. 

Broussard said that nobody has come close to what Jordan did during his active days, so it's hard to pick somebody as his second coming right now. However, when talking about the best player of this generation, Chris said it's LeBron James (8:50). 

"There's no Jordan of this generation. I mean, I'm sorry. No one is dominating the game the way Michael Jordan did. No one is leading the league in scoring every year. And then winning the championship 6 years. There have been three 3-peats since Bill Russell. Three 3-peats in the last 50+ years, and Michael Jordan has 2 of them. I mean, come on. No one LeBron, KD, Steph, no one is dominating the game the way Jordan did. So there's no Jordan of this generation. But the best player of this generation, and if you wanna give somebody that title of 'the Jordan of this generation' is LeBron James."

Stephen Curry changed the way the game is played and nobody will change that ever. He took over with the Golden State Warriors and went to five straight NBA Finals during the 2010s. LeBron James went to 10 straight Finals in the same period, dominating the Eastern Conference every season. 

He didn't win more championships because of Steph and the Warriors, but his talent and quality on the court are undeniable. It's hateful to compare players from different eras but Broussard has a point when he says Bron is the Jordan of this generation. He's won 4 NBA championships, 4 MVPs, 4 Finals MVPs, has been an All-Star 17 times and he's not done yet.
