So unless the quotes you provided compare LeBron of 2013 to Michael Jordan, you're full of crap.
Yes, I was embarrassed. For you. And I still am.
56.8% craps on anything Mike's ever done, and LeBron's doing it from the paint AND from the perimeter.
Pippen and Boeheim both picked LBJ over Mike. Pippen stating an opinion then retracting it only after the public outrage doesn't change the fact that he still stated that opinion.
Boeheim saying "Now I'm not so sure" then following it with the qualifier of "and I love Michael Jordan" and THEN praising the parts of LeBron's game that trumps MJ strongly implies that he's siding with LeBron.
Keep your old, wrinkly head in the sand, though. [View Full Quote]Only a clown who's never played the game thinks that steals and blocks are the way to judge a defender. LeBron's opponents shoot around 30% from the field, and he's guarding positions 1 through 4.
Monta Ellis is usually among the league leaders in steals, and he's one of the worst defenders in the league. It's "you're".
Old, out-of-touch, obsolete... and evidently, uneducated as well. You keep bringing up the current opinions of MJ vs LeBron as if that proves anything.
MJ's one of the most famous athletes in the history of sports, LeBron's a 28 year-old with half a career still ahead of him!
How do you think MJ's "peers and teammates" would have ranked him back in 1991 at age 28? As the greatest current player in the history of the game?
Terrible argument, but from someone as dense and uneducated as you are, it's not a surprising one.
," said the 43 year-old who never learned the difference between "your" and "you're".
So now your argument is so weak that you turned to the grammar card. Pathetic. I'm an attorney. Spelling isn't something I'm supposed to do well.
. The whole argument is who is the greatest ever. EVER includes all relevant data. Your data is on half a season that isn't over and a career that we have no clue about. Your arguments don't get you there and have been shown to be wrong by the stats and the players who play the game...with him and now. Again, 99.9% of the people here...you being the exception...would err on the side of the people who play the game, know the game and who play still. They have talked about the eras, the rules, how Jordan would light it up now, etc. That is the debate. Not one half season where you are making out with your LeBron fathead every night. You just made my point. Magic said that when Jordan came in he told him to watch out. People already were talking about how special he was. So YES, they did think he was the best they had seen. These same people still aren't saying that about LeBron. You made my point!!I did play basketball. I know basketball. Steals and blocks and turnovers are just as important as assists. They save points and take possessions away from the other team. You cherry picking stats...only 2 that count...is weak since Jordan's stats are static and are already set. You can't take LeBron's now fluctuated stats and say there better when Jordan had a far superior number in the same time period. The articles and stats I posted show this. That is basic to anyone who is educated and with a brain. You also made everyone's point about how many points LeBron gets in the paint...a majority. Showing that the zone and other defenses are weak at best. Just like the stats I put up the previous page...I'm sure you didn't read any of it because it makes all your arguments look silly. You lose. End of argument. Case dismissed. If you want to keep showing your tail and embarrassing yourself, feel free. I'm tiring of trying to debate with pure ignorance. Debating is only fun with a worthy foe and you're like a 6 year old who just learned to draw laughing faces.
