    The only Jordan Rules were the ones David Stern instituted when he REVISED all the games defensive rules so Jordan would be ABLE to overcome Detroit and not retire in frustration!! Anybody who believed Jordan was 4 levels ABOVE every other professional basketball player,probably still believes in FAIRYTALES!! I too would score 40 points a night,if like Jordan,I took TWENTY shots!!

    Jordan is the perfect floor general... as he's coming down the floor, you always knew hes got you... he's going to will himself to win at all costs.
    Then there's the other guy who calls himself the "GOAT"... standing around with the dumb look on his face at the end of most games.
    It tooks YEARS until Lj was even somewhat comfortable with getting the ball at the end of the game, and only everyone once in a while, at best.
    Sorry big dummy, MJ is your unobtainium.

    until such time that my grandma, who lives in the mountains here in the philippnes, stops buying jordan shoes and starts buying lebron shoes for her fave great grandson, only then can anyone make a claim that lebron is better than jordan. she used to climb down from the mountain to watch mj play on tv. today she can still climb down from the mountain and still watches basketball but not to see anyone in particular. about her views on mj vs lebron, she said mj elevated the sports into art, he can fly and he can dance, while lebron is like a gorilla, and of course gorillas jump higher and has longer reach than man, but he can never play like jordan, not even close

    So I've long contended that MJ is the GOAT and LBJ is not. My opinion is not going to change and I have seen statistics that one could make the counter-argument. Here are my reasons why MJ is better and always will be than LBJ. First, Jordan was capable of scoring at will any did so whenever he felt like it or it was needed. We've all seen times when LeBron tries to do this and he fails. Second, while James is a better passer naturally Jordan was underrated in this capacity. He wasn't given the ball to pass it, he was given the ball to score. Third, again while statistics support James being a better rebounder that may have more do with where is is on the floor and his size than actual rebounding ability. My main reason why though is look at the contemporaries during each player's respective era. Easiest thing to do is look at the BEST Olympic teams these two were on and the collection of talent, including those players that were left off the Olympic teams. Anyone think with the exception of maybe one or two guys, Kobe and Duncan, that the players in James' era are as good as those in Jordan's era with several guys in the top 50 in NBA history (many in the top 10).

    MJ led the NBA in scoring for 10 (7 straight before 1st retirement) seasons and steals for 3 seasons.
    To put it into perspective, Kobe led in scoring for 2 seasons, Lebron only once, and neither of them has led in steals. Durant led in scoring for 3 straight seasons and another season but never in steals. CP3 led in steals for 3 or 4 seasons but never in scoring.
    Moreover, the time MJ was retired in 94 and 95, the two leading scorers for those seasons were both prominent centers, Admiral and Shaq.
    Cut the long story short, MJ was literally a force to be reckoned with on both ends of the floor. The guy has no loophole to his game. The guy could kill anyone on the basketball court.

      Roc Steady the bulls roster and roles changed over the years and i can honestly say the Bulls will adjust no matter how hard the league changes. It’s all down to one man...MJ. MJ’s athleticism is already given but his mentality is as sharp as a razor blade, you take your game up he will try and beat you twice as hard with a statement. He is so competetive in the head, he is mental! Bash it and he will drop 40 or more on you! How can you beat that? I dont see it in Lebron kobe harden. I can see the Bulls adjust in todays 3 point games- they already have it in kerr kukoc pippen and MJ. All they have to do is perfect it. How i would love to see this team compete with warriors rockets and bucks today! Wishful thinking

    I hope I won't hurt the feelings of these Jordan die hard fans.. but mann... these guys are too slow.. Today's centers who can dribble can seriously break the ankles of these guys.. imagine if we place westbrook on this Era.. my goodness.. i can't imagine how woud you defend an animal like him. Not to mention when LeBron goes serious mode.. that's why I cant be a fan of Jordan if i live in today's era.. because when you tag somebody as greatest of all time, you disrespect the quality of the guys playing this era.. today's NBA is the finest of the finest from the different parts of the world. and if you insist that an 80's ferrari is better than today's ferrari, i say that's BS. I say, Jordan is best on his era. Kareem on his era, and LeBron in today's era.

The smaller guys were so much quicker than the taller guys, that they just looked like they were slow. However, these were big bruising centers and big men. Closest to their like is Ben Wallace when Detroit won their Championship against the Lakers.

    Hoony K. Месяц назад +29

    my argument of why MJ is the greatest of all time and not Lebron is, MJ's a pure athlete.. he plays on the run, and keeps it in motion and doesn't skimp out on defense to conserve energy.. his shot blocking ability doesn't rely on a cheap backboard trick which is optimal for a freight train like LeBron, but instead Mike has good timing and good hands to block shots while in the air away from the rim.
    His intensity at the end games is crazy high and doesn't play with play making technicalities, but with momentum and reading the defense in real time..
    and he was loyal to his team.. You can see in the beginning of the video of the UNC pride with the warm up shorts..
    Lebron is all stats and a great player (and has the power to go to whatever team he wants), but he doesn't put in the work like the dynamic MJ creates in Go-Time...

    • Jerad Potter
      Jerad Potter 14 дней назад

      +David Watson there is a difference between best and greatest. I have done my research. You can buy into the flash. Everyone has their opinion. I like dominance. Truly never will be a GOAT just abunch of debating. Jordan was the best at what he was job was on the court along with Kareem and others. Positions require different roles and I think anyone who was the greatest in their position deserves to be considered a GOAT. Mount Rushmores are the better arguments. I like hearing starting lineups over numero uno.

    • David Watson
      David Watson 14 дней назад

      Jerad Potter I think you should really look up the stats again and you’ll see that Jordan’s are better. His done remarkable stats in a shorter time and was hitting these milestones quicker in his career.
      20 seasons and Jordan would’ve been top scorer by quite a distance. He was already averaging more points a year than Kareem.
      Your the type of person that doesn’t compare stats for the same amount of playing time. Instead you compare people that have played more games and argue points that mean nothing.
      Jordan is 6-0 in nba Playoffs. Something your Kareem will never have.

    • David Watson
      David Watson 14 дней назад

      Jerad Potter Kareem does nothing for me. He is a big guy in a position that you can easily dominate from in basketball and he had to many good players on his team.
      Jordan was mvp 7 years in a row. Retired and came back and was mvp again. In retirement the mvps were centres. So the game went back to centres dominating again.
      Wake up to yourself. Jordan changed the way the game of basketball was played and had so much more skill than Kareem. Jordan could shoot from anywhere

    • Jerad Potter
      Jerad Potter 14 дней назад

      +David Watson just because you shine doesnt make you the greatest. I didnt lean towards Kareem till recently and if you actually take a look you might rethink too. I was too young to enjoy Kareem live so it took awhile for him to grow on me. I think Michael hit his peak at the perfect time to get pippen and Phil and then later Rodman. Never would I take away from Jordan I always had him at 1 until recently. Either way if I am picking I am taking Kareem. He is gonna win me more games than anyone else. We are even missing 4 years of blocks for Kareem. It's a no brainer.

    • David Watson
      David Watson 14 дней назад

      Kareem was there before Jordan. But they were around the same time and Jordan’s first championship was against lakers. Derrr !!!!
      At the end of the day. No one has done for basketball what Jordan has done. He made it global and still gets the most sales out of Nike. While being retired. Where’s Kareem ? Kareem has done nothing like that for basketball.
      Ask a novice who Kareem is. Then ask them who Jordan is.

      what are you talking about? J's spin move is one of the best ive ever seen given when and where he'd execute them, often in a packed lane and splitting two defenders. Spin moves are best utilized against smaller and/or shorter defenders which is why LeBron relies on it. Jordan often used it on forwards and centers in a confined space. The footwork,quickness, and spatial awareness it requires to pull it off is truly sublime. Watch some more of his highlight packages, he definitely spins! Check out hoopsencyclopedia's "The Artistry of Michael Jordan" videos. After over a decade, they are still my favorite videos on this site.

And they cant really stop him in the paint. All he would do is drive and pull up and dish. I just think he wouldve been better in this era than in the 3 pt era.

    I am not one to jump on anyone's bandwagon, but being(52)I saw 1st hand what M.J. could do and I'll quote that late great Red Auerbach when he stated" rarely do you see a player that doesn't have any weaknesses and Michael Jordan doesn't have any!" People say that when M.J. retired for the 1st time after winning 3 straight championships and the Houston Rockets won 2 straight while he was away where not there and didn't see Michael in his prime and if he hadn't retired those 2 years he would have still been in his prime and would've won 2 more making if 5 rings in 5 years. I'm not sure if they would've won 6 straight though because with free agency they lost Horace Grant(who was vital in them winning 3 straight with his defense and rebounding)as well as B.J. Armstrong who provided good defense and well as scoring when the Bulls needed him too. Plus people forget when Jordan had 2 straight years off that actually benefited him more than anything and when I heard in the off-season of '95 that they where considering signing their former(Detroit Bad Boys)nemesis in Dennis Rodman who then and probably for his size(6'7' 215 lbs)the best rebounder ever pound 4 pound I knew that the Bulls could make a run at the table and when 3 straight again, which they did!!!

Ditto for his inability to score against zone defenses,which then became illegal JUST for Jordans benefit!! Jordan;PAPER tiger!!

      The moment that the media started attempting to change the standards for greatness by arguing that LeBron's losses in the finals were actually enhancing his legacy (especially 2015), it was clear that he would never reach MJ. I personally felt that he wouldn't after he lost two playoffs series back to back in '09 and 2010 despite having homecourt advantage. MJ never lost with homecourt advantage. That's just how tough it is when you want to be compared to the greatest.

    • Blackdeath

      +megavolt67 And that's why MJ is still the goat. Mark of a true leader never throwing his teamates under the bus like the passive aggressive Lebron. Also, despite being the best player in the league, MJ played harder than any other player. Amazing.

    • megavolt67
      megavolt67 27 дней назад +2

      Both things were true. Jordan was rusty AND they lacked a strong rebounding presence. The Bulls still had chances to potentially win that series in spite of that but Jordan actually came up short in clutch moments. It would've been the difference between the Bulls squeezing out a six or seven game victory versus the sweep they got a year later. I vaguely remember watching the series in '95 as a kid and being stunned when MJ got stripped near the end of that one game where the Bulls were ahead. We're all used to watching LeBron choke at the end of key games and giving him a pass because he's tired or because his competition is supposedly too good but with MJ that sort of situation was unusual and everyone noticed. That's why MJ actually shouldered the blame for the loss in the offseason and used it to inspire himself to get back into proper basketball shape.

      Uncle tony question for you ; were you trying to spell the word bastard ? When you said merry freagin xmas, you bastads. What kind of word is that? I take that you're a bulls fan ? Great if you are. I'm a pistons fan forever! I was one then and I'm still one today. Back then basketball was really tough and very physical, unlike Today's basketball in which i don't care at all. Yeah we may have been a little rough and down right dirty at times, but tell me how many players got injured or had season ending injuries? Michael always wanted to drive to the basket and dunk without paying a price! Back then if you came into the painted area expect to pay a price for coming inside. Barkley and karl malone was dirty players also, nobody made a big deal about that!. Detroit stood in Chicago's way from getting to the championship that's why we got labeled as been dirty! No! we were tough and we played a man's game! Michael just wanted to poster rize you for his own satisfaction and gratification and expected people to move out of his way. We said no! You come in here, you're gonna know that your ass been fouled! Since you called my team bastads which is not even a word , I think you were trying to spell bastards, l say fuck the bulls!! Michael cried like a bitch ass nigga! In the locker room! He only won because they got help from the referee's and they took us out of our game by blowing the whistle on every little tic tac foul ! Now merry fucking Christmas that !! Detroit 6'9 waiting on your reply!! Assholes had to get Dennis Rodman to win those other championships because they got out rebounded by the Orlando Magic because Horace grant was no longer with them when Michael came back from trying to play baseball penny and the Magic put a whipping on their asses!!!. Why did they go after Rodman? He was a pistons player? Oh Utah would have won that series if Dennis was not there!!

    This may have been a "passing of the torch" game, i.e., Pistons came into game as two time champs, only to give up that mantle to Jordan/Bulls just six mos later.

      They didn't give nothing! It was taken away from them! It took them long enough! We stood in their way just like Boston celtics stood in the pistons way.we had to learn how to win! The bulls didn't have the mental toughness like we did. Kevin McHale told Isaiah Thomas that it was mostly mental!
