LeBron quit. MJ never did. Let's face it, there's really no game situation where you'd rahter have LeBron with the ball vs MJ.

If I'm an owner... or a coach... or another player for that matter... and I want to win titles, I would want Jordan on my team...

If I'm a player and I care about my stats first, I would want LeBron on my team since he would command double or triple team coverage on him and he is a good passer... Jordan was a good passer but I think LeBron is a better passer... and he is willing to give up the rock in tough situation, which it has actually hurt him and his team at times.

Bottom line... I would prefer Jordan on my team... Heck, I would prefer Larry Bird and Magic as well before I choose to have LeBron on my team...

/ LeBron is a great, GREAT, GREAT player... but he is no Jordan...

How many titles did MJ win w/o Pippen?

MJ had the advantage of playing in an NBA that was devoid of top talent. Magic, Bird and Isiah were all lost to injuries.
Karl Malone & John Stockton always disappointed in the playoffs.
Seattle imploded by screwing over their best young player.
Larry Johnson f*cked up his back.
The New York Knicks were basketball's equivalent of the Holocaust. Ugly, ugly, ugly.

Shaq & Duncan were too young.

We are arguably in the greatest talent boom in the NBA ever. You can easily come up with 6 legitimate contenders for the title (Miami, Boston, LA, OKC, Clippers, SA). Another 4 teams who could reach the finals and not be a major upset (Philly, Dever, Indiana, Memphis). And another 4 teams who if things go right can also make the finals (Brooklyn, NY, Dallas & Minnesota).


Malone and Stockton disappointed in the playoffs because the Bulls beat them.

And Bird/Isiah were instrumental in keeping the Bulls down for 5-6 years. Jordan had 63 against the Celtics in 86. He was battling Bird and Isiah until 91'.

phxmke: Exactly. Guy's a joke here in AZ.


Sure, what with all those others Suns teams that made it to the NBA finals since, I can see why Sir Charles would be so reviled in AZ.

Of course he can you idiot. Jordan is in his 50's. no 50 something year old man can beat a pro basketball player in a game of one-on-one

More talented, perhaps. Drive and resilience is another story.

I hate when people do this shiat with players from different eras, and then to top it off with players that played different positions. Can't we all just agree that they both were two of the greatest basketball players to play? Haters be damned.

Harry_Seldon: This is just silly. Both are great players. I have seen both men play under the lights, and thought both are amazing. LeBron and Jordan are the cream of elite players of their era. You may as well argue whether Superman is better than Batman.


You're spot on. And Jordan is Batman here. Meaning he ALWAYS WINS
