Rings are an overrated Stat somewhat a better tool to use is NBa finals MVP, Sam jones and Hondo have 10 and 9 rings respectively does any 1 on earth think they are better than MJ or Kobe?
AI has only played with two all-stars in his career and they are Ratliff and Mutombo older both guys who were defensive specialists, imagine if he played with Shaq, duncan, malone etcc...
Read about half the article and don't get it, what's your point?
Iverson took a much worse team to the NBA finals and actually won a game against a Laker team that was one of the best ever, iverson didn't get a chacne to play with a top 8 and top 15 player in his prime though..
When Lebron melted down time after time in the clutch and dissapeared something Jordan has never done..
Undoubtedly you would have a Kobe and Shaq post-championship situation where AI attempted to run the other guy out of town. AI was that player who always wanted to be on a team where he was the only star. No way he could have meshed with another star who was at his level during his prime. If you look at a list of players who had the highest usage rates in a single season of all time, Iverson had 5 of them. And he only averaged 6 assists a game in his career while essentially playing PG. I think it would have been a disaster if he played with one of those guys.
OF course his assists are going to be terrible he had no 1 to help him score, If i pass you the ball and you can't make a shot im not going to get an assist. That's not entirley true the reason why AI wanted out of Phila is b/c the management effed him over bad by giving him trash to work with.

Jordan lost to the Bad Boys Pistons or Bird's Celtics every year for his first 7 seasons. It was when he hit his prime that he was perfect. Lebron still has a chance to match that.
Those teams Lebron played on in Cleveland demanded him to be near perfect to succeed because the team was so weak around him. The only time you can say he truly choked was his first year with Miami against Dallas. Regardless, he still has an opportunity to go on a championship run comparable only to MJ's dynasty in the 90's. Very tough feat but it could be done.
Incorrect... Jordan isnt half the athlete LBJ is.. Love to see Mike try to stop that freight train or jump over James or out quick James. Nope.
I Ain't got no Worries - Lebron James
Bird's celtics had 4 HOF's and the bad boy pistons were ferocious Salley, Mahorn, Rodman, Dumars and zeke; It's different though LBJ's team is loaded with not many good teams in the NBA. Think about the fact that Bosh, Wade and JAmes were all starters on the All-star team b4 they united when has that ever happend in recent memory?
Deshawn Stevenson says HI..
in a game to 11. although i admit that LBJ seems to be getting better at shooting. maybe MJ by 9

.....this is the most laughable statement of all time. Michael would EASILY score on LeBron because he can hit from anywhere and any way

so does the matrix and jason kidd..
Jordan has the highest vertical in NBA history and ran a 4.3 in high school..
Really MJ wins by whatever he wants to win by.
YOu guys just admire LEbrons ability b/c he will go down as prob the 2nd greatest ever but no 1 is MJ, MJ scored 40 points at the age of 40..
And this is where we see Lebron fans get carried away. Lebrons got a few inches and about 40 pounds on MJ, and I'm positive Jordan could have guarded him and guarded him well. They'd have to switch off on the post but there were few smarter defenders on the perimeter than MJ. And Michael Jordan is one of the most incredible and graceful athletes the game has ever seen. LBJ has more athleticism for sure but to say MJ has half is crazy.
yep, everybody is unique
Good for him... You take Stevenson I'll take Lebron.
Lebron is the fastest baseline to baseline in the league and is 6'8 265.. Would break MJs skinny ass
but he's mentally fragile see 2011 NBA finals..
You're all high. MJ by 2.
i wish i was high
