    Going by their "Logic" of better numbers means better player, then Russell Westbrook is a Top 3 player Ever!!! Only he and the Big O' have ever averaged a Triple Double. Did Magic Johnson ever do that?? No.
    How many of you sane people would actually pick Westbrook over Magic.............??

    EXACTLY!!!! Fact is Jordan is the Greatest of All Time, and it isn't even Close.

  • len brian
    len brian 8 days ago

    Jordan played in an era of basketball that was WAY more brutal.When basketball was a mans game loaded with legit hall of famers MJ was thee man. Malone, Stockton, Barkley, Ewing, Miller are just some of the names that don't have rings because of MJ. There is no debate. Larry Bird was better than Lebron please. Defense in the NBA, in all pro sports, has been severely neutered. Offence sells, so defense is watered down. If you want to talk about Kobe vs Lebron, now you're comparing apples to apples. Lebron vs MJ is comparing apples to a unicorn.

    The funny thing is that Jalen is talking about Jordan's ability to lead his team to victory that he didn't have to switch team for championships while LBJ had left his team for several times before he got his hand on the trophy and the host just responses "are we talking about who is staying the longest in one team?" =))))) LOL....I'm a girl also but I don't see how she comes up with such a dumb question =)))))

      forgive them, they're young. Anyone who's watched both Lebron and Jordan play, will tell you who's better. I had the privilege of watching both players and I can tell you MJ is worth 2 Lebron James'. The NBA they both play, and played in, are night and day. Flagrant 2's were the norm in MJ's NBA, no technical, no ejections, just a trip to the line or an inbound, thats it.

    Jalen Rose is one of the WORST so-called 'analysts' in the world. He's one of the top examples of the bullshit company line that best players should always make the playoffs and advance, which is utter bs. Put MJ on the worst team in the NBA, esp. in the West, and they don't make the playoffs. It's the same dumbass mentality that says a guy who avgd. 40/15/5BPG can't be mvp if his team doesn't make the playoffs despite him having only one other good player on his team.

    First of all how the heck can he jump over the Black Mamba!? Are you guys on drugs or just memory deficient? Kobe is the next best thing to MJ period! He (they) have something LeBron James will never have and that's the killer mentality! They don't shy away from the game winning shot they actually demand it! Haven't seen that from LeBron James! Kyrie actually baled him out & took over the game while King James shrunk to the lonely I'm just a spectator at this moment! So ppl stop this disrespecting of The Black Mamba please it's so disconcerting!!

    Every player that played vs MJ, Kobe, and Lebron put them in that order for a reason. Last year a poll to NCAA coaches voted MJ the GOAT 82%, and this year the god damn current players even know MJ is better at 73%. Watch interviews of Vince Carter, Grant Hill, Shaq, and McGrady for example that all played vs these players and they all say MJ was just better that he was more dominant and can do it all

    LeBron played 11 years with the cavaliers and had a real good all star twice, TWICE, 2 TIMES, Kyrie and Love got injured in 2015 doesnt count, 2016 they won , 2017 love was turning ass and Kyrie and LeBron lost to a 73-9 team plus KD lol like how does that even work he also lost to a veteran spurs team that had 3 veterans a star in kawhi lead by the best coach in history, lost to the mavericks bcuz the mavericks were simply better, the way the beat the shit out of Kobe was never talked about as well, people talk alot about LeBron quitting, so u down 15 with like 1mim left u are down 3-0, against a 4 all star team alone, what do u want him to do, and when they were about to win JR FUCKED it

  • bootyslayer93

    I dont understand what numbers they look at. Offensively and defensively jordans better. Oh lebron got more rebounds and assists? Have 1,000 more turnovers and less defensive win shares + no dpoy to go with that lol. The numbers argument is a complete sham especially when lebron fans exclude all the numbers that dont favor him, and while were at it jordan avged more offensive rebounds which are harder to get, what a joke. All the while teaming up with the likes of wade, irving, bosh, and love. Also played with 2 of the greatest 3 point shooters of all time in ray allen and kyle korver. The last 2 championships he won he was the only allstar on his team pippen or rodman werent all stars. Didnt all tne nba players just vote on the goat and like 75% said jordan and 12% said lebron? Lmao, yet this fat dope who has never hit a layup in his life says lebrons best. I mean at the end of the day its all matter of opinion but if your opinion isnt, "Jordan is the best player of all time." Then your opinion is wrong lol

    So sick of people hating on MJ for playing baseball. I'm from Chicagoland, lived there my whole life... When Jordan's father went missing and was found murdered it was a huge story here. It really hurt Mike, obviously... Jordan senior was his hero. And his dad had always hoped his son would play baseball. So when he died Mike felt a need to try to honor his father's memory by aspiring to be that, a baseball pro. Maybe people don't realize that aspect of his transition in sports, but it's the truth... No one can argue that had he stayed in basketball he wouldn't have won 8 straight championships. Especially considering the 2 teams that won while he was away from the sport were teams that era Bulls dominated.

    Blondie: "numbers"... ok, here we go:

    MJ vs LeBron
    This is a silly debate. Clearly Michael is better. It's not even a close one. But let's go to the facts. Updated after Lebrons 14th season. Michael Jordan has
    •3 more rings
    •3 more final mvps
    •1 more DPOY
    •1 more season MVP
    •9 more scoring titles
    •3 more steals leader
    •3 more all defensive team selections
    •4000 more points / bron moved past him in playoff points, but it took him longer lol.
    •800 more steals
    •Beat 20 50+ win teams in the playoffs (Lebron only defeated 10)
    •Jordan never averaged less than 40% Field Goal in the finals
    Lebron did it twice
    •6/6 (never allowed a game 7)
    •Lebron had much more help
    •Jordan never had a teammate averaged more than 22 points in the finals..
    Kyrie averaged over 28 and DWade averaged more than 26
    •MJ never ever had a finals meltdown like Lebron in 2011 against the Mavs
    •MJ had more points in the playoffs in less games..
    All of this accomplished in 13 seasons
    Lebron is in his 14th season still chasing the "ghost that played in Chicago"
    •Michael Jordan in the playoffs has put up atleast 40ppg, 5rpg, 5apg in 6 different playoff series. Along with an average of about 55% shooting, 3spg and 2bpg.
    (86 vs bos, 89 vs cavs, 90 vs philly, 92 vs Miami, 93 vs Phoenix, 88 vs cavs) Jordan won every one of those matchups except for the 1986 matchup vs the celtics.
    •Jordan in 88-89 averaged 32ppg, 8apg, 8rpg, 3spg off 54% shooting. LeBron has never even came close to this stat line.
    •in 87 thru 92, MJ averaged 5 straight seasons of atleast 51% FG shooting. LeBron has never done this.
    •the lowest FT% MJ ever shot in a season was 78%. Lebrons highest in a season ever is 78%.
    •MJ has a higher playoff FG% of 48.7% to Lebrons 48.3%
    •MJ has a higher playoff player efficiency rating of 28.6 to Lebrons 27.3.
    •MJ shoots a higher playoff 3 point percentage of 33.2% to Lebrons 32.9%

    •MJ also shocked the league by being the first (and only) player to have 100 blocks and 200 steals in the same season, then turned around and did it again the next year..

    Seriously this list can keep going. This isn't even a debate. Mj is the GOAT.

    Michael in only ELEVEN complete seasons with the Bulls:

    -10 STRAIGHT scoring titles,
    -Won Defensive Player of the Year,
    -9 times all defensive team,
    -9time All NBA,
    -5 league MVPs
    -6 finals MVPs

    LBJ missed the playoffs completely in his first 2 years. Jordan didnt with scrubs on his squad. Jordan played 82 games 9 times in his career once at 40. LBJ only played 82 games once. In 89 Jordan won the scoring title all star MVP slam dunk title regular season MVP and Defensive Player of The year something LBJ has never done. Jordan also averaged 41 pts a game for an entire Finals shootimg 50% and won. Something else LBJ never did.
    All 11 seasons. Mj has done in 11 seasons things Lebron hasn’t done and won’t do in his whole career...

    And before you criticize me for copy and pasting just know that it doesn’t matter if it’s copied or not, truth is truth.
