With LeBron James back in the NBA Finals for the seventh straight year, we’re already talking nonstop about the LeBron vs. MJ debate.
Shaq, however, thinks that comparison comes up short. He sees LeBron as a mixture of three players: himself, MJ and Magic, he explained to cleveland.com's Joe Vardon.
"He's a mixture of Michael, Shaq and Magic," O'Neal told cleveland.com. "Shaq, because he's bigger and stronger than everybody."

"And Magic because he does a great job getting everybody else involved. He's been like that his whole career. Even in high school. I knew he was a special guy in high school."
"I've only met two people like him. Him and Kobe. Guys that were super determined ever since high school and accomplished all their dreams, and just wanted to be realized and recognized as one of the greatest and both had extraordinary careers."
