    I know MJ is the greatest basketball player of all time but when it comes to community work as far as giving back LeBron is a head of him, LeBron always gives back to his community, where as MJ is stingy asf

    Now I have seen Lebron James matured as a man with the way he talks and the way he acts...in a very good way. I used to see him as an arrogant man....

    Only Critique is the “Kap” thing he didn’t sacrifice anything he was already on the way out, and that was his only true intention was to be relevant again. He’s number dramatically drop after Harbaugh left.

    What kevin durant doesnt realize is that the media can make or break you. They can make uo stories that can ruin your life. As much as it sucjs they are your enemy that yiu need to learn how to control and appease them at the same time. Lebron has learned this. Through PR relations training or just his demeanor, he uses the media to his advantage and at the end even said "yall my friends"

    Dayum, Lebron is the best speaker from the NBA I've ever seen. Jordan is good too, but not like Lebron. Lebron has just evolved as a speaker, you can ask him the toughest questions and he will conquer it. I mean, this dude could work anywhere in the world with his skill set just with his high communication skill set.

    This guy was just meant to have platform for his voice. He is just wise beyond his years, even looking at his interviews at age 18. He's matured so much, but at the same time he just meant for so much more than just being an NBA player.

    This is a BRILLIANT example of the maturity of Lebron and his skills as an ambassador of the league. NOBODY active in the NBA today comes close to this man. Y'all haters are stupid AF. He's 10x the men you wish you could be.

    Winning championships is a team achievement,people say Jordan is the best because of the rings.Numbers is what the 🐐 is based off.Jordan didn’t win six rings the bulls won six rings get in.They started this rings thing with Jordan,before him no other goat was put in that place because of rings.Lebron will be the goat if he passes Kareem when it’s all said and done.And by the way I grew up watching Jordan his whole career and a big fan,the only thing to me that puts Jordan over Lebron is the scoring titles and defense first teams.But if Lebron can pass Kareem he is the 🐐 he already passed Jordan on almost all categories key word already

    Media : "LeBron James says Dwyane Wayde's "come to an end", remains quiet about mysterious call from Kyrie and boasts about having so much knowledge in the game".

    It's funny how Lebron always makes a point of repping Akron like it's a city completely disconnected from Cleveland. Akron is Cleveland!

      Jordan coming out of Carolina was more athletic then LeBron out of Akron. And he joined a lot tougher NBA, a lot more physical game. As much as I respect LeBron, he hasn't stepped up in big moments at times, other times he has, people's memories of Jordan mostly are of him stepping up and Knocking down the shot when his team needed him to. Why he is 6/6 not 3/9
