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.

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

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.

Offensively Lebron, Defensively Lebron. All Around best player to ever play Jordan all the way.

You guys also have to realize that the NBA has changed drastically since Jordan played.

If he gets his 5th ring, you can ask this question again. If he gets 6 rings like MJ, my answer will still be "maybe."

I just about spit my home brewed sweet tea all over the desk, keyboard and monitor just reading the topic. I'm still laughing inside at the mere notion of LeBron and MJ being used in the same sentence with the word "great" thrown in the mix. Jordan not in his prime is/was/and always will be superior to "run my mouth and not back my words/actions" Lebron.

There will never be another player as dominate as Jordan was. He was always the best prepared, most game planned against...and no one could ever stop him. Night in and night out he was consistent. You never saw a playoff disappearance from Jordan like you saw with LeBron against Dallas. LeBron got his ring, but sad thing is...you don't know if he'll get another.

The only people that might even possibly think LeBron has a chance are those members too young to have watched MJ play in his prime. They simply can't comprehend Michael's ability to completely take-over a game whenever he felt like it.

One testament to Jordan's greatness are the countless interviews with his hall-of-fame peers, olympic teammates, and NBA coaches that played/coached against him. When asked in interviews, practically every single one, without hesitation, agree that MJ was the most dominate, intimidating, competitive and skilled player they had ever faced.

...The most convincing testament is that even 9-10 yrs after his retirement...he is still used as the barometer when comparing greatness. You never hear experts say, "He's gonna be the next Kobe/LeBron"....it's always "He's gonna be the next Jordan". That's how you know MJ is still the GOAT...period.
