NBA star Tomas Satoransky has labelled LeBron James as the “Cristiano Ronaldo of basketball” and compared Kobe Bryant to Lionel Messi.

The Washington Wizards point guard - who is in England for the NBA London Game 2019 against the New York Knicks –previously played for Barcelona’s basketball team earlier in

his career.

“Am I Team Messi or Team Ronaldo? I’m a Messi fan,” Satoransky told Goal.

“If I had to name a ‘Messi of basketball’, it would be former LA Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

“I would probably call LeBron James more like

a Cristiano Ronaldo because

of how physically dominant he is.

“But I would say Messi is more like a Kobe Bryant.”

Satoransky, 27, played for Barcelona’s basketball team from 2014 to 2016, prior to joining the Wizards.
