The conversation of !ebron vs Jordan is ludacris. Does anyone else remember that Lebrom has had an extra 3 years in the NBA up to the point bc he came straight out of HS?
Jordan on the other hand stayed in college at UNC for 3 years. Lebron may match him in some statistical categories by the end of his career but the argument is stupid.
And let's not forget that Jordan retired 3 different times during his career. JS
Again, I'm not talking about the Spurs series in any way shape or form.
Question his drive if you want, but everyone who's ever played with him says he is one of the smartest players they've ever seen. I've heard that from guys like Shaq and Battier
Dude's 28 and you're talking about legacy
Up to this point in his career you can't tell me the guy has a lot of wasted talent. This is supposed to be his prime we're witnessing?
I think those guys know a lot more about basketball than any of us here.
Several players have stated that he studies the game like no one else. He knows alot of player tendencies. What do you guys expect him to do? Run all over the court and defend everyone?
Say what you want about Lebron...he is as straight forward as they come. When they lose, he steps up to the mic and admits they lose. If he plays bad, he admits it. You also never see him pinning blame on other teammates.
Finally, he stays out of trouble.
His entire career, to date, has been based on "him not having enough help."
Do you ever see him get on the mic and blame teammates? I can answer it for you...you havent

I'm sorry, but you dont know more than NBA players.
You're way off on this. ESPN did a piece a week or two ago and his praise was pretty universal, even from guys like Skip Bayless who are super critical of him. One of the highest basketball IQs out there.
At 28 he has:
1 title, chance for a 2nd
4 finals appearances
1 finals MVP
Tell me someone else in league history who has done that?
Ummm no. I can promise you that you dont
MJ had 3 titles, 3 Finals MVPs by yr 10.

LeBron is going to be remembered at the end of the day as the best talent probably to ever play, and he has a dang good trophy collection, but he will NOT be remembered as the GOAT. Jordan has secured that position and anyone who is not totally blind or lived under a rock in the 90's will admit that....well maybe the fanboys wont
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
amazing resume iyam.
3 time POTW, member since 2006, MLWTI: 4-3
He was also like 31 by year ten
Thank you for proving my point for me. Not making GOAT comparissons or anything like that because obviously his career is incomplete, but what lebron has done in his twenties is incredible.
I have said a million times on here that Jordan is the GOAT.
But, to say LeBron can't reach his level is absurd. He's 28 with 4 mvps one title one finals mvp 4 eastern conference titles. He'll be a top ten player without a doubt.
He still has possibly a decade of basketball left so let's slow down. You are comparing MJs whole career to possibly half of LeBron's
Not to mention most of you are assuming this series is over which is far from being the case. To win it in 6 spurs have to do something no one has done since January and if it gets to 7 it's anyone's series with the home team being historically favored.
Anyone have NBA2K13 on 360 and wanna get whipped?
He literally cannot do it, I don't care if he wins 50 championships. Jordan helped breathe life into basketball again because Bird and Magic were getting ready to leave. While LeBron is the face of the NBA, Kobe was still in his prime when LeBron came in, and so LeBron will never really have breathed new life into the NBA. Jordan is just untouchable mang, it is what it is.
You are literally the only person I have ever seen question LeBron's basketball iq. As a matter of fact his basketball knowledge is praised as possibly his best attribute
I already picked the Heat to win brother.
That is ridiculous. I know it might be tough to see or admit that your childhood hero might get passed up but it's a possibility. Does LeBron have alot of work to do to get there? Absolutely he has alot of things he needs to accomplish. But it could happen.
Nope, can't happen. Michael is forever number one.
