There's Michael Jordan and then there's everyone else excluding the center position. All time great centers are in a totally different category. Not a true comparison. It's like comparing a regular field player with a pitcher. Jordan could never be the physical dominating force that Wilt, Kareem, or Shaq were and they could never be the all around complete player that he was.

Payton was waaaaayyyy off when he said the 90s era was better. The 90s was an expansion league where the talent was watered down. In the 00s is when we started to see international talent really come on to improve the league again.

MJ 14th season was really his 12th. He took off 2 years and the came back just to win 3 in a row. Also Lebron would have never beat the Detroit Pistons back then he too soft. MJ went at them, he had to admit that the Pistons was the team he could not beat until he hit the gym.

When Gary talks, it's STFU time. The man knows him some hoops. I might be a Celt's fan for life being from New England, but I always respected guys like Gary, Michael, Magic, Kareem, etc. from THE era. For me LeBron isn't even top 5 - top 10 perhaps, but no top 5.

The whole debate is a product of media manipulation. LBJ is the cash cow for now so obv the media and NBA are gonna push this GOAT narrative. They do it with EVERY generational talent. It was Kobe before him

Lebron's basketball IQ to me is a fancy excuse to get the ball out of his hands at the end of games.

The only thing you need to know about Lebron james, is that he got outplayed by Jason Terry in the finals. End of discussion.

i think part of the reason why jordan will always be the greatest ever in most of people's eyes because he dont have a goal to surpass... bird is the best alongside magic but media back then is not as popular as today.... back when lebron was drafted media overhyped lebron... so evryone will always pick jordan as the greatest ever... evryone is saying jordan is the GOAT..

Jordan didn't cover Barkley! Pippen and Rodman tried. Jordan knew he'd get schooled and be gassed by covering the round mound!

The game of basketball has come so far. You can tell by one of the greatest defenders ever saying don’t switch like it’s bad to do it. It’s an evolution of the game

🤔NOBODY brings up Jordan losing YEARS of potential stats due to 1. College Career and 2.Two Early Retirements .. LeBron had a Headstart in NBA🤔
Cesar Alejandro Romero Ochoa
Si MJ ser a el mejor de la Historia Pero en mi opinión personal era muy egoísta y casi nunca pasaba la bola. Solo los últimos años empezó a dar los pases . si el equipo tiraba 100 tiros 80 eran del MJ. Le valía madre los demás jugadores

Lebron can block you in the back but MJ will block u in front, who is better
Greg Gentile

Lebron doesn't play defense unless it's a chase down block once every 3 games. Watch guys go around him all game long then he'll call out a teammate for not helping out fast enough.

this nonsense about lebron being able to guard all positions, thats ridiculous. thats only true in 2019, because there are no real centers anymore. could lebron actually guard shaq, hakeem, patrick ewing, hell no. lebron gets all his defensive accolades from these great help defense/weak side blocks, etc. show me when he shuts down anyone great with his on the ball defense... change my mind

Kareem >>>>>>>>> Lebron
Objective Perspective
Um Byrd and Scottie were both better all around players than mj. My is not even the best shooter, Byrd or curry might have that. Byrd even have a better killer instinct than mj. So mj is not even the goat. I never seen LeBron take the best player. And I never seen mj be the facilitator so what's the point. What's better. Well since its a team sport than a facilitator is better. Mj is overrated. Byrd was better. Scottie is better all around. So how is mj even the goat

Thank you GP aka the Glove. The league was different, required better, more skilled, tougher players back in the day. Just my opinion, but the league today is just not comparable to the era of MJ, GP, Scottie, Dominique, Barkley and so on..

Lebron is terrified of being exposed in a 1v1 situation. Look at his body language when he's being guarded by elite guys like durant or pierce or Kobe, he wants to get out of there.

The difference between LeBron and Jordan, Bird and Magic is those three didn't just want to win the game. They wanted to destroy you. They wanted to watch you cry. They wanted to make you seek counseling. They weren't satisfied with just winning. They also were always clutch. They didn't learn to be clutch over 5-7 seasons of their careers. They came into the league snatching victory in the last moments. LeBron has a history of excepting defeat before the game was over. Jordan never excepted defeat until the clock said 00:00.

Lebron is muscular and bull strong. We live in an era where strong, big and dominant is praised. MJ is simply on another level. He simply has superior championship smarts and leadership. Most important Jordan NEVER choked. While Lebron, time and time again chokes.
