Shaquille O'Neal Says Julius Erving Is The Greatest Player Of All Time, Not Michael Jordan

Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan is widely regarded as the greatest basketball player of all time, but another legend, center Shaquille O'Neal points the finger elsewhere.

O'Neal was asked to pick who would win between LeBron James and Jordan during a promotional event in Hong Kong, and Shaq used the opportunity to talk up the career of Julius Erving, according to the Associated Foreign Press.

“I’ve seen young Mike and young LeBron, and I must say Dr. J is still my favorite player. A lot of people today don’t even mention his name, but to me, I still think he was the best. But these are questions that we’ll never know the answer to."
