Not all 'Canes think LeBron is NBA's best
Miami C Reggie Johnson says LeBron is great but Kobe is better
Not everyone in Miami thinks LeBron James is the NBA's best player.
Just ask Miami Hurricanes center Reggie Johnson.
Johnson says he was thrilled that James and Dwyane Wade borrowed a trick from Hurricanes standouts Shane Larkin and Kenny Kadji, when Wade lobbed the ball off the backboard to set up James' highlight-reel dunk during Miami's win at Atlanta on Wednesday. Larkin did the same thing for Kadji at a recent Miami-North Carolina game that the Heat stars attended.
Afterward, Wade told reporters that the Hurricanes inspired the play.
And here was Johnson's good-natured reaction: "The second-best player in the league right now, LeBron James to say that and then Dwyane Wade to say that, man, that's remarkable."
That's right. Johnson's pick for No. 1: Kobe Bryant.
