Some of you are hilarious regarding LBJ being a better defender. Let me know when LBJ wins MVP and Defensive Player of the Year IN THE SAME YEAR!
LBJ is a freak no doubt but MJ is the greatest of all time and it aint close. LBJ wins 1 championship now he is all of a sudden the greatest ever.
Our "what have u done for me lately" society cracks me up
you have a point with the defensive blah blah.
as soon as you bring up championships its dumb though.
Jordan dominated his time better than anyone else, and because of that he is the GOAT (for now). But I don't think, even in his prime, he could dominate today's game like Lebron does. Its very hard to compare players 20 years apart, but I think Lebron is bigger, faster, stronger, and smarter than Michael and thus better.
If you asked me to pick MJ in the 1990s vs LBJ today I would pick Jordan. But if you let me put LBJ in Jordans era I would have to go with Lebron.
I guess the question is...what specifically was Jordan better at? Not bullshit, stats?
RINGS DAWG, RINGS!
The one thing people are not talking about is the level of compatition. Today you have. Kobe. Durant. Carmelo. And james. The 90s. Jordan. Shaq. Barkley. Miller. Hakem. Magic. Isiaha. Ewing. Stockton. Malon. Payton. Kobe was there. So was garnet. And iverson. 90s was real basketball. No flopping no crying or blaming everyone else for not taking the game winning shots. No one left to build a super team to win a championship. Good drafting and coaching up players. Jordan made everyone around him better. Lebron has 3 other super stars on his team and yeas ray allen is a super star. All of thos players around him have gotten worse bosh and wade where 20+ scorers now they average what 14? This heat team would get bullied in the 90s area lebron would be on the bench his crying and flopping would never get respect by 90s players. Thats a joke to say lebron is bbwtter he's been in miami for 3 years and ray allen has more game winning shots in half a season. The. His 3 years. Winners take game winning shots
Lebron is a freak and one of the best basketball players of all time. But I watched Micheal Jordan play from his days at North Carolina and every game I could watch on TV during his time in the NBA. Micheal Jordan is the greatest basketball player to ever play the game. He could do everything and he did. He could not be guarded. The only thing that stopped Jordan from scoring was fatigue at scoring so many points. But he wasn't just a scoring machine. He was one of the best defenders in basketball as well. He could rebound too.
During Jordan's prime, he took the worst team in the NBA to a playoff berth on his back alone. Everyone knew who was going to get the ball. Everyone knew who was going to shoot the ball but nobody in the entire league could stop it. Micheal Jordan MADE Phil Jackson. Its easy to look like a coaching genius when you have the best basketball player in the history of the sport.
I could go on and on about the things I personally seen Micheal Jordan do in games where he was hurt, sick, or just too damned old to be playing the game anymore but just take my word for it. Lebron is a great player. One of the greatest of all time. But Jordan was and is the greatest.

lebron can guard (and lock down) 4 positions. how many could jordan do that for? you cavs fans hating lebron is what is comical.In 1 on 1 Lebron in his prime and MJ is is prime would be a 11-6 win for Lebron.
facts and stats don't count, bruh, only rings do!
Your so wrong. Do you know who jordan played against? Todays leage has 3 future greats. 90s. Has 10 plus. Todays game is extremly soft. Lebron would of gotten beat up. The crying the flopping. Blaming others. I'd love to watch him blame Patrick ewing or magic. Or jordan. Lebron is a great player no doubt Bout it. But not even close to being a top 5 or top 10 ever. As of now top 15 yes not top 10
whille the game as changed the amount of talent far exceeds the talent of when jordan played. lebron and jordan are the top 2 hands down. top 15 is so wrong open your eyes
then robert horry should be the best player of all time
3 future greats?? laughable, Kobe, durant , bron , wade, garnett, tim duncan, chris paul. tony parker. rose, howard, irving, melo, wall, rondo. All have hall of fame potential. oh and pual pierce.
