Jim Boeheim just talked about how amazing it was to eat food in the same room as LeBron James, so it's probably no surprise that he's telling folks that he thinks James might actually end up being better than some guy named Michael Jordan. That's kinda-sorta what he told Colin Cowherd (yuck) this morning.

"I've always thought Michael Jordan was the best player that I've ever seen. I always have and and I didn't think it was close. I'm not so sure any more. And I love Michael Jordan. I'm not so sure anymore. This guy is 6-foot-9 and 260 pounds, and he's getting better. He works on his game. His shooting is getting better. He's a phenomenal, phenomenal basketball player. I love this game, I love the history of this game. I know we've had great, great players through the years. He's like Magic Johnson with Michael Jordan-type skills as well."

Boeheim added that Carmelo Anthony remains "the greatest Melo I've ever worked with, in and outside the classroom." No, he didn't, but he probably would have.

I would imagine there are some North Carolina Tar Heels fans scoffing out there after hearing this.

Get used to it, folks.
