Rachel Nichols Says LeBron's Son Burned Him on Michael Jordan Comparison

The LeBron vs. MJ #debate continues to tear households apart. First it was a roommate fight, and now it’s threatening the fabric of the relationship between father and son. As Rachel Nichols told it during tonight’s Cavs-Celtics telecast, LeBron James was informed by his son that he’d just passed Michael Jordan in all-time playoff assists (he’s now in sole possession of ninth-most), before dropping a hellacious but actually. “His son was quick to tell his Dad he doesn’t think he could beat MJ in much of anything else.”

Nichols asked LeBron about this interaction in the post-game interview, and he gave a polite laugh before ably deflecting the question.
