It appears that the comparison between LeBron James and Michael Jordan can never stop. Rightfully so, considering the accomplishments the two of them have been able to achieve during their respective careers. LeBron is still building his legacy, as he still has a lot of basketball in front him. Even though he will turn 33 in just a few months, LeBron is widely considered as the best player in the NBA, and he proved that's true once again this season.

LeBron led the Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals, and even though they lost to the Warriors in five games, James was the best player on the court in that series.

He ended up averaging a triple-double in the Finals, becoming the first player in NBA history to do so.

Just before Game 1 of this year's NBA Finals was about to start, it was reported that a racial slur vandalized LeBron's home in Los Angeles. After the incident, James spoke to the media, addressing the racial issue and his words caught the attention of basically the entire world. James sent strong messages and acted like a true leader and a role model.

Thomas doubles down on his comments

James' remarks on racial issues really stuck with one other NBA legend - Isiah Thomas. After hearing what the Cavaliers' superstar had to say, Thomas went on to say that LeBron James is the greatest basketball player of all time.

Isiah caught a lot of heat for those comments, but it appears he's not backing down from them.

Just a couple of days ago, Thomas joined the "Bull & Fox" podcast and doubled down on his comments about James being the best. When asked if he thinks LeBron is above Jordan, this is what he had to say: "Absolutely, and the reason why I say that is because, as a champion, especially since an African-American champion, you are always required to do more."

LeBron ready to take a stance

Isiah was obviously referring to LeBron's activities outside the basketball court as he is well known for his outspoken personality, and charity work.

LeBron was never the one to shy away from taking his stance, no matter the circumstances. Thomas continued by saying: "LeBron James took a stance. He wasn’t silenced. He spoke up and spoke out for the voiceless."

Obviously, Thomas' rivalry with Michael Jordan during their playing days is well known, but that doesn't make his comments any less valuable.

In fact, many will argue that LeBron James, even if his career ended right now, is the greatest basketball player of all time. Even though he has three championship rings, and Jordan has six, it goes beyond basketball what James has been able to do for the community and all the people around him.

Thomas finished his statements by saying that the reason he puts LeBron over Jordan is not just basketball-related, but it's also about James being outspoken on many issues and him taking a stance.
