LeBron James says he’s flattered by Scottie Pippen saying the Miami forward ”may be the greatest player to ever play the game.”

James does not agree, however.

Pippen created a bit of a firestorm Friday by telling ESPN Radio that Michael Jordan ”is probably the greatest scorer to play the game” but James may be the better overall player.

James says he’s ”gracious, humbled” by the comparison, but notes he believes he has a long way to go before reaching the game’s highest echelon.

James and the Heat practiced Saturday, continuing their preparations for Game 1 of the NBA finals Tuesday night against the Dallas Mavericks.

    Wow, knowing LeBron I’d figure he’d say he IS the greatest player to ever play. Surprising; nice post by the way.

    Do you happen to have a twitter page? I’d love to be in touch.
