    Just want to hear what people think about this subject, me and my boy got into a long discussion about this yesterday.

    He seems to think it's inevitable that Lebron will be better than MJ and I think that he'll be mentioned in the same breathe but wont surpass Jordan. What do you guys think?

    ^Ha ha... Dex keeps it coming.


    Jordan was great, not just because of his stats... but because of certain intangibles like STYLE and impact... he changed the game. Lebron hasn't done that yet... and his style isn't all that original.

    Kareem Abdul Jabbar is still the all-time scoring leader... Oscar Robertson is still the only player to average a triple double for a career... so it's not simply about stats.

    Lebron's offensive game still needs more dimensions, too... like a mid range jumper... people didn't really start calling Jordan great until he developed his j.

    ^why develop a mid-range when he can drop contesed shots from 2-3 feet outside of the 3-point line with ease. also i don't think when it's said and done anyone else on this cavs team will have surpased pippen, rodman, or even ron harper. just my 2 cents. me and my buddy were talkin about this yesterday and thats what i thought of

    Lebron-Stronger, more athletic, better driver, crazy fast break wingman
    Jordan-Better shooter, absolutely knew the ins and outs of the game, clutch, amazing defender

    Two different players, both absolutely great in their own right.

    I know Lebron loves to pass, but you know Jordan WOULD NOT have passed that ball that Lebron passed last night. He would have shot, and most likely made it. Lebron is truly great, but Jordan is just Jordan. Time will tell

    I just think if you're going to be great or the GOAT, then you should have more dimensions to your game... there are plenty of role players and technicians... but few very, very great players... Lebron is close, though... he still has a lot of time left. Right now, I wouldn't even say he's better than Oscar Robertson, let alone Jordan or Magic.

    You think Lebron is more athletic than Jordan and a better driver???

    Jordan was agile as fuck and could move like the breeze... plus, I've seen him thread more needles than Lebron, who really just bulldozes his way to the basket for the most part... they play two different positions, which calls for different responsibilities, but still... I doubt he's more athletic or a better driver... stronger? Yes, because he's bigger and has more muscle mass... but Jordan was pretty strong for his size.

    Lebron's a fucking monster. Think he could be GOAT one day.

    I'm kinda getting sick of his whole persona already though. Annoying.

    i think he is gettin much better tho. look at how much better he got this year alone. i remember his first 2 yrs his outside jumper was really bad. i think when its all done he will be better, maybe not as improtant in the moving forward of the game but definetly better. and whenever i see videos comparing the 2 of them it hurts to think lebron is better. jordan epitamizes my childhood

    Big O didn't average a triple-double for his career. He did it for one season. Impressive, but you are way off.
