    They couldn’t overload the strong side when Jordan played. He’d have to completely change to play today. If there was no overloading today then Lebron would average 69

    MJ's mentality and drive is far stronger than Lebron's. LeBron appears to play for himself.

    Michael Jordan’s the greatest, like Elvis and Michael Jackson there will be no other player to ever come close to his greatness. I’d even go so far as saying that i dont believe any modern dynasty could hang with that bulls team. Scottie pippin, Rodman., Harper, Jordan. Luc longley, Toni Kukoc, Steve Kerr, that team was sick. May have even had the most entertaining defense to watch.

    I always respected Scottie and this just enhances that. MJ is the greatest ever. Kobe and Lebron are amazing and talent wise possibly superior but...MJ was a killer. He would do anything to win. That’s different than talent. That’s hunger that cannot be learned.

    The player that was the closest to Jordan was Kobe. There’s a lot of awesome players and LBJ is awesome. He’s the best right now. Magic, Bird, MJ and Kobe were killers. ALL of them had that killer instinct. No one in the league now is a killer. Not like those four.

    Lebron never had a change with such a player like Scotty! Or a team like 90's bulls ! If he did , Things would be totaly diffrent ! I myself was a teenager in jordan's era ! I watched most of his games ! Put it this way ! Take the jordan out of this 90's bulls and let LeBron play in the place of jordan he would have more rings then jordan ! Technically he is better then jordan ! We have to fave the fact ! And if you are talking about g.o.a.t jordan is not even in first 5 ! Thats also a fact !

    compare James Lebron to Michael Jordan is just like compare Ronaldo to Messi. Ask the best defenders and they can tell you who they are scare the most?
    Michael Jordan is not only a score machine but also he can create the excitement for the fan to enjoy his magic skill whatever he got the ball. Most important Michael always carry the winning spirit for the team even he is not at the peak performance. James Lebron is a great player but he can't compare to Michael.

    Pip is 100%! Anyone who thinks he is wrong is an mj hater or just a modern day lebron fan who never ever saw a second of mj play. I watched every game of the bulls from 1996 onwards till mj was gone. I have watched lebrons and Kobe’s whole career to date. Kobe and mj are the two best players iv ever seen!

    Best scorer: MJ
    Best overall: Lebron
    Most skilled: Kobe
    Most dominate: Shaq
    Best shooter: Steph
    Most lethal: KD
    Best defense: Kawhi
    Are we comparing legacy or rings? If we are, I'm taking Bill Russell over all of them. If not, then stop comparing two different players and enjoy the greatness of these players

    If u were picking a team then Jordan would be number 7 or 8. Everyone knows he is a David Stern creation. So if u were picking a team you would pick - Kareem, Wilt, Bill, Oscar, Bird, Magic then the next round would be Jordan, LeBron, Hakeem, West etc.

    Tell me where I am wrong...
