Munchausen's Proxy: Michael Jordan was not only a supreme athlete, that was described as a rare, gifted athlete that still managed to over achieve, but had a burning hatred for loosing. The year the Bulls won 72 games, he was pissed they lost 10. The stories of fights during Bulls practices were frequent when he thought his team wasn't practicing hard enough. Jordan's and the Bull's offensive numbers and highlights are everywhere, but that team was build around defense and Jordan was defensive player of the year once, all defensive team nine times and lead the league in steals three timesMatch this to Lebron. Lebron is a truly gifting athlete that has obviously worked very hard on this game. However, he will take a night off.
meanmutton: Kobe Bryant and LeBron James both fits the transcending-their-time, true superstar (not just ESPN-hyped "superstar" that teams need three of to make the playoffs) model. In both of their cases, the "Next Michael Jordan" tag was appropriate.
