    2 different skill sets, different posistions, one has rings and ended his career, the other has not. Wait 10 years.

    They are about as similar as Wilt and Cousy were. They can't be compared, and if you do you have to wait until LBJ is done playing.

    LeBron is already 28. He has probably 4 more solid years in him til he starts slowing down. When MJ got old he could rely on his sweet jump shot and fade away. LeBron does NOT have that and won't have that when he gets older and slower.

    Re: Should LeBron James be compared to Michael Jordan?

    MJ's career playoff scoring average is 4 points better than anyone else to ever play the game.

    LeBron's NBA finals two years ago was the largest statistical choke in Finals history, just math. Biggest drop from regular season to finals scoring in NBA history. That's a lot of basketball with nobody else's game dipping that much.

    That should have completely ended it, but a combination of many people being under 30 and watching last year's finals brought an irrational discussion back around. People have a hard time reconciling that while he's very possibly the most talented player ever, he also quite clearly is lacking some things in his game MJ had in bunches.

    Re: Should LeBron James be compared to Michael Jordan?

    Yes, he should. LeBron was terrible tonight. It happens and San Antonio had something to do with that. Pop isn't one of the best coaches of all-time for no reason. I hope the Spurs win but there's a lot of series left.

    Okay, why should he? You didn't explain yourself.

    Re: Should LeBron James be compared to Michael Jordan?

    The great thing about MJ was he was always great, and the bigger the game the more great he was. Lebron shouldn't even be in the same discussion with MJ. He still has a lot of resume building to catch up with Kobe. No matter how many all star teams LeBron forms, and no matter how many rings he gets he will never stack up to his airness.

    Re: Should LeBron James be compared to Michael Jordan?

    In his entire career, Jordan was never MIA during a big game. Lebron has already been there, done that and can never take that back. Because of this, IMO he'll never be an elite player to the same level as Jordan was no matter how many rings he eventually ends up with.

    You do realize that it's possible to compare dissimilar objects, right? I could compare LeBron James to a lemon juicer if I wanted to. Your question is confusing.

    This pretty much sums it up.

    I think we'll always compare the best player in the game to Jordan so I said yes.

    Once I read your post I realized that actually wasn't what you meant, but it was too late.
