Only One Person Has Ever Been On The Same Team As Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant And LeBron James


There's only been a handful of players lucky enough to play alongside multiple legends of the game. Jordan Clarkson is one of the most recent examples, having played with both Kobe Bryant and LeBron James thus far in his four-year career.

The amount of knowledge Clarkson would be gaining from the brains of two of the most influential basketball players of All-Time would be astounding, and there are probably many fellow NBA players who would kill to be in Clarkson's position right now. Not only did he get the chance to play with Kobe in his final game ever -- the same game where he scored 60 points -- he now has the opportunity to win an NBA title with LeBron in Cleveland.

But what if we told you there was a player that not only was on the same team as Kobe and LeBron, but Michael Jordan as well?

That's right, one lucky player (and coach) has been on the same team as all three greats. His name? Tyronn Lue.

You wouldn't expect it would you? But Lue has been on a squad with Jordan, Kobe and LeBron.

No player has played with all three, so Lue comes the closest, playing alongside Kobe on the Lakers between 1999 and 2001, Jordan on the Washington Wizards between 2001 and 2003, and then eventually coaching LeBron James on the Cavaliers from 2016 onwards.

With all the questions given to Jordan Clarkson about his time with both the Black Mamba and King James, it's a wonder someone hasn't asked Tyronn Lue what it's like to be around three of the greatest basketball players to ever play the game.
