inorite. Dude was flat out robbed in the first 50. Some real punk-a$$ justifications from NBA Open Court. God damn Isaiah was butt-hurt but how they (the Association) left of 'Nique was flat out highway robbery.

I think you need pull the blinder of Lebron hate. He is clearly the better playmaker than Jordan who averaged 30 shots and 5 assists per game.

The difference, friends, is that LeBron James moved multiple times to teams that were cobbled together and infused with huge tons of money to win championships. Michael Jordan had championship teams built around him.

But there's no sense in having this debate with people who just scream "Waaaaa! But LeBron is the best because I love him!"

LeBron's never had a supporting cast as good as the best Jordan 90s teams. When Jordan left to play baseball, those teams were still very good. The post-LeBron teams were all bad (to be fair, Wade left Miami too at that time).

So we're going to fault LeBron for... exercising his right to free agency?

No, he wasn't.  He was the Carmelo Anthony or Tracy McGrady of his era.

THIS.  Lebron would have given anything to have John Paxson feeding him the rock and Bill Wennington rebounding for him.

I'm going to assume you're being sarcastic, and naming those two rather than, you know, Pippen, Rodman, Kukoc, or Horace Grant.

And I'm assuming you're forgetting about Wade, Bosh, Irving, Love, Davis, etc.?

And Kukoc and Rodman are two very incomplete players.

The Bulls won 55 games without Jordan. Find a LeBron team that won 55 without him.

If we're dragging goalposts around, could a Wade and Bosh team win 55 games?  Sure.  Could Kyrie and Love win 55 games?  Sure.  Could BronBron singlehandedly win the East when it was absolute dogshiat?  Sure. Even Allen Iverson, who was a modern day Pistol Pete, got a team whose second option was Eric Snow to win the East.

What?!

Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were not as good as Scottie Pippen and the revolving door of role players the Bulls front office rotated in around them? Horace Grant out, Rodman in; same results. Paxon out, Kerr in; same results. Bill Cartwright out, Luc Longley in; same results. Toni Kukoc certainly figures in there too as Pippen's replacement while he's out or as a second small forward in Jackson's triangle offense. You should know this. If not, what the fark are you doing in this conversation?

So, in short, to say Lebron never had the supporting cast is a lie at best, and a big farking lie at worst. The desire to defend LeBron as the best is understandable. But Jordan didn't move around or handed a stacked deck to win his championships. He won two sets of three with an ever-evolving cast whose only other real consistent was Scottie Pippen.

With all due (limited) respect, dude, do yourself a solid and get an internet connection.

Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman > Dywane Wade and Chris Bosh.

And I'm a Bulls fan who loved MJ.
