    Re: Cool Jordan video

    There is always a bias towards more recent athletes. People have a way of forgetting athletes from the past.

    This talk of Lebron being as good or better than Jordan is an example of that. These two are not even in the same league. I think those advocating for James are either too young or have sort of forgotten how unbelievable Jordan was. He could not be stopped when it counted.

    LeBron will never EVER be as good as Jordan. No one will.

    Everyone else is fighting for #2 on the list of greatest ever. Sure, MJ won 6 rings. But what doesn't get mentioned enough is that he was 6-0 in the NBA Finals. When he took his team to the finals, they never lost.

    Lebron isn't even in the same league with Kobe, IMO. Kobe is no Jordan, but he is at least someone worthy of comparing. Comparing Lebron and Jordan is an insult to Jordan.

    Not very many people try and make that argument. Other people just take a statement like "He has the potential to be as good as MJ" and turn it into "that idiot thinks LeBron is as good as MJ."

    Well, if they think he's already as good as MJ they are idiots.

    Re: Cool Jordan video

    In defense of Lebron, he isn't the one comparing himself to Jordan. Granted, counting championships for two hands before you win a single one is pretty stupid.

    He did bring it on himself a bit by getting a tattoo of "The Chosen One" written on him and glossing himself King James

    Re: Cool Jordan video

    I realize this video isn't an actual Nike commercial, rather something some random person put together. But I think there's something to it. Guess we'll see after the next two games.
