    hold up now T-Mac...the greatest to ever do it socially is Muhammed Ali (may he rest in peace). Please stop it... trying to lift people to pedestals that they have never even sniffed. When did Lebron give up his title, go to jail and lose a boat load of money for what he truly believed in???? C'mon bro...just stop and stick to b-ball. Praise Lebron in another way but we don't have to be dancing between both ppl just so we can chill with them later or not to stew up some beef. It's your opinion so just stick with it. Lebron will respect you more for it. This is the difference between the old school and this "I don't know what to call it" era-everybody wants to be friends. Hey, it is what it is.

    Isiah a lifetime shame and jealousy on Michael Jordan...

  • Lil' Wayne's guitar teacher

    People also forget that Jordan's Bulls swept the Pistons in 1991 and Isiah ordered his bench to follow him to the locker room WHILE THE GAME WAS STILL IN PROGRESS!!! Total douchebag move and the Pistons NEVER gave ANY props to opposing teams. The reason Isiah and his teammates were so pissed that series is because the Pistons were going for a 3 peat as NBA Champs and MJ's Bulls swept their ass. Jordan then had Isiah kept off The Olympic Dream Team in 1992 and that's even with Isiah's head coach Chuck Daly coaching the Olympic team!!!! You could say Jordan got the last laugh and Isiah has hated him ever since. I HATED the Badboy Pistons with Isiah, Laimbeer, Rick Mahorn, Dennis Rodman, James Edward's, Joe Dumars, John Salley and Vinnie Johnson. Biggest douchebag of a team ever.

    While all you NON big-city types cant conceive of the steely RESOLVE it takes to survive Southside Chicago,or West-central Detroit,understand that LAST-night,if Klay Thompson and(a game earlier)Kevin Durant possessed the fortitude Isaiah has,neither of them would've LEFT the floor and went TO the showers!! Watch Isaiah in Game 6 of the 1988 Finals,and SEE exactly what the word:heart MEANS!! Isaiahs effort would've won the Pistons their first(of four consecutive)title if NOT for a phantom-foul whistled on Laimbeer guarding Kareem in the post in the final seconds!! Lakers fans would've cheered Isaiah limping off the Forum floor,but Isaiah never gave them the satisfaction,because he didn't LEAVE the floor!!! He stayed until the buzzer sounded!!! Toughen-up Durant!!

    Air Jordan?!? BAH!! Extortionist Jordan is more like it!! After getting HUMILIATED in the 1990 Conference Finals Game 7(which he fully EXPECTED to win)by TWENTY,Jordan was asked in a post-ame interview:Michael,I don't know what to SAY;after coming SO close to finally getting past Detroit,to have it end like THIS!! So were does Michael Jordan go from here?!? Jordan responds:I don't KNOW. But if SOMEthing isn't DONE about Detroit and its style of play,I just might have to think about RETIRING!! After David Stern cleaned Air Jordan?!? BAH!! Extortionist Jordan is more like it!! After getting HUMILIATED in the 1990 Conference Finals Game 7(which he fully EXPECTED to win)by TWENTY,Jordan was asked in a post-game interview:Michael,I cant imagine wats going trough your head right now. I don't know what to SAY;after coming SO close to finally getting past Detroit,to have it end like THIS!! So where does Michael Jordan go from here?!? Jordan responds:I don't KNOW. But if SOMEthing isn't DONE about Detroit and its style of play,I just might have to think about RETIRING!! After David Stern cleaned out his underpants,all the tactics defenses could enact to contain prolific scorers were MODIFIED to ensure Jordan and the Bulls would overcome Detroit,keeping Jordan happy and UNretired,and the NBA doesn't LOSE the TENS of millions in gate receipts and television-ratings Jordan was bringing to the League!! After Detroit was taken out of the picture(forbidden to boot Jordan out of the playoffs)there WERE no OTHER quality teams hindering Jordan from winning the title. C'mon now;Utah,Phoenix and Portland?!? A pale-shadow of a Lakers team without Kareem(filled-in with Michael Thompson LOL)Byron Scott,and a hobbled Magic ?!? The GOAT is George The ICEman Gervin,who lit up the scoreboard every night,in the games Golden Age against a healthy Bird,Kareem,Walton,Norm Nixon,Magic AND a healthy Dr. J!! Jordan played against against aging and injured veterans and rookie,new-age BUMS!! Just how is Jordan the greatest in NBA history when he wasn't even the best player(actually he was the 3rd best)ON his(basically 12th-grade level talent)COLLEGE team!! Jordans entire pro career was SCRIPTED!! ANYbody is liable to put up 40 every night when they're taking 25 SHOTS!!

    iSIAH is never going to admit that Jordan is the best ever ... cuz he was left off the Dream Team .... cuz no one liked him ... why .... it goes back to when the Bull played Detroit ... Detroit won the title 2 yrs in a row and the third the bull won and instead of taking it gracefully ... Isiah and the rest of the team walked off the court before the game was over... a slap in the face ... disgraceful

    Overall see you again that's that's where the LIE come in at Isaiah Thomas no he wouldn't pick LeBron James or Michael Jordan when I look at Isaiah Thomas I see a liar and a punk to even say that and also see a hater to me he don't even belongs to be up there that's it because of the way you said or you don't believe LeBron James is better Lil Michael Jordan guess what your testimony it's better than Isaiah Thomas and believe in your vote oval Isaiah Thomas and keep it moving. And as for the Toronto Raptors I hope you don't look at yourself as a championship contender you just beat a team with a lot of injuries that's all I see you as of right now when you can't play the full team full healthy is not a win-win moment for me it is just a win-now until the team get healthy again Point Blank

Scottie said LBJ doesnt want the ball... but he changed the coach's play to take the last shot... if yall werent so biased you would listen to what they are actually say and see they pick LBJ but are afraid to say it. MJ couldnt win without Scottie yet Scottie sayinf he wouldve been better without him... wtf. 😂😂😂😂

    Tired of this bullshit argument. Lebron has to go jump from team to team to win championships....Jordan is the team leader no matter who is playing with him, remained winning with Bulls the whole damn time.

    There is no real comparison, they just try and put it out there to have stuff to talk about and to keep older people who watched during Jordans era interested in NBA (which sucks now) and keep the younger people interested thinking they are witnessing the GOAT overtake Jordan. The GOAT has already played and retired and his name was Michael Jordan and wore#23. Look I am a Jordan fan, but first I am a former NBA fan(can barely watch the crap now), I would like just as much as anyone for someone to come and bring something exciting to the table like Jordan did.....but realistically no one has and no one will. NBA has become stale and waste of time. They are desperatley trying to push Lebron over on people.

    What people tend to forget is the grace MJ had, he really was flying and gliding through the air, pulling off impossible moves and layups in the 80's, where a windmill dunk was considered a sensation! It's his style and grace that separates hims from all other skill players in history imo.
    Usher can dance, he can sing, Ne-Yo can dance, he can sing, none of them have Jacko's style and grace. It's the same with MJ and the other players.
