Will Lebron James Ever Be As Great As Jordan?
 
Please state your facts and reasons why he might fail and never walk in Jordan's shoes or will he surpass them in due time? Whatever your opinion might be speak you have a voice and we respect it.

I still think he needs to follow Kobe Bryant path before trying to over throw the "Greatest of all time" King Jordan.

This commercial has to be one of the best i've seen so much meaning.

Will lebron be Jordan?.......NO!

SUKXOST 09-23-2012 08:42 AM

HELLZ NO! Lebron might achieve more accolades and numbers if he plays a long time, as well as others....but no one will even top the GOAT Michael Jordan.

Jordan missed almost his whole second season with a broken foot; missed almost 2 full seasons after his father was murdered and he retired; then he missed 3 more full seasons before he came back to the Wizards for two years(when he was 39-41 years old) and still averaged over 20PTS after knee surgery.
Forget the fact that after his 6th Ring he sliced through his right index finger tendon with a cigar cutter during their celebration.(finger healed crooked and yes his shooting % dropped) but he shot over 50% in a season 6 times in his career as the most double and triple teamed guard in history when hand checking was still allowed. For perspective.....Kobe has never shot better than 46% during the era where putting a hand on someone back is a foul and traveling is almost never called when "cupping" the ball is so ridiculously prevalent now a days.
Lebron could not win with a mediocre team and sold out for a ring. MJ stayed with a scrub team and made them better, no matter who was there. Don't say he could not have won without Pippen either bc Pippen wasnt even an All-Star when the won their first ring. Lebron is a great athlete but NOT MJ. Not now not ever

NO.....not even close!!!! ;)

I think Lebron would take him one on one..

Ryanbabz71 09-23-2012 09:17 AM

Never, no one will be better

As Doug Collins stated each year he came back stronger and his shooting improved.

I had the privilege of growing up in nw Indiana during the mj years and it was so much fun. I probably watched 75% of the bulls games. Best memory was graduating high school in 1998 then rushing home to watch the finals for the clincher

You're on crack. :P

~MJ won defensive player of the year....AS A SHOOTING GUARD.
~Had the most steals 3 times in his career....AS A SHOOTING GUARD.
~Only 1 or 2 guard to ever have 200+ steals and 100+ blocks in the same season(he did it two years in a row at 6'6"!)
~MJ can drive; take you off the dribble; step back; fades away off his left or right shoulder; can go left as well as he goes right; can finish with either hand(absolutely the best left handed finisher for a right handed player ever); has more post moves than most centers ever try(Lebron) only last year started posting up and he's 6'9"( he's WEAK with his back to the rim unless he takes a fade away jumper)
~MJ has legendary competitive drive, fundaments and work ethics.

One on One in a game to 21......I say MJ 21 to Lebrons 15 (MJ would run off a string of 10-12 pts at some point using 6-7 totally different moves and Lebron would not know what to expect)

Here is MJ at 46yrs old in pants and a sweater against a slam ball player half his age:

Lebron is known for crumbling when it counts and selling out for a Ring.

This sums up everything pretty well

Does this mean Lebron is going to need to rape someone?
