  • In the playoffs Lebron breaks a record almost every game. If they hadn't hurt Kyrie and Kevin Love that would have been one. After winning they had to get KD. If you dont have him number 1 that's your opinion. It's all a opinion. Kareem has better stats to be number 1 but his shoe isnt selling like Jordan's. But anyone who doesn't have him in their top 5 is hating. The man averaged 40 points and a triple double and he needs a iconic moment. How about leading all players on the court in all divisions. Just enjoy the game.

  • Bron is the 🐏. MJ Had Pippen, Grant, Stockton, Kerr and Rodman. Bron won all of his on his own. MJ needed help and played again bad competition.

  • Sport is about success, quality, records, level of competition and most importantly winning. LeBron has 3 titles in 17 full years. (obviously has loads of great stats and personal success, but I can't stress enough the point they have been done over a full 17 years, from a younger age). He has only one scoring title, 9 less than Jordan, has less mvp's, less finals mvp's, never been defensive player of the year, less defensive teams of the year. He's been less successful in most important measures and in a longer career. 3-6 in finals is bad no matter how you slice it also. Plus playing for USA with pro nba players, he lost at the Olympics in 04. Didn't even get to the final. MJ has 6 titles in 13 seasons at the Bulls (84-93/95-98). Of which one season (85-86) he only played 18 games as he broke his foot. Another season (94-95) he played 27 games having been retired for 18 months and came back at the tail end of the season when not in basketball shape, in his 30's. So 6 titles in 11 full seasons (plus a combined 45 games in those other two seasons). Out of those 11 full seasons he was rookie of the year in his first and (then in every full season he played after that, for the rest of his career at the Bulls) he was10 times scoring champion, averaging the highest ever per game. 9 x all defensive 1st team. Defensive player of the year. 5 time mvp (should have been 7). 6 time final mvp. Plus 6-0 in finals. All in 11 full seasons. He competeted against a higher ratio of top 50 all time players, as well as top 10 all time players. Also had to go through the strongest and toughest Eastern conference teams ever, in the playoffs. Plus great teams from the west in the finals. Overall, in the regular season and post season he was competing against some of the greatest teams in nba history and a whole league of teams that were allowed to defend and defend hard. Having gone to one of the worst teams in the whole league in 84, with no winning history (and haven't really won anything since) and through years of hard work and leadership plus playing at a 9 or 10, out of 10 performance level game after game for years, MJ dragged them up, turned them champions and into the best team in the league hands down. Two 3 peats. LeBron is a great player, but has stats from longevity. Has so many finals from years playing in an easy eastern conference during his career and jumping from team to team. MJ was just truly great. Plus more overtly talented and driven, especially when it came to winning. LeBron hasn't even surpassed Magic (for the record 9 finals, but 5 wins), Bird or Kareem. Never mind comparing him to MJ. At best LeBron is top 5. But he hasn't even made it conclusive that he is definitely top 5 yet. There's still Russell, Wilt, Shaq, Kobe for him to definitively surpass. This goat conversation is getting ridiculous. The media push it, because they want another cash cow like Jordan, who stimulated the economy by 10's of billions of dollars. So they need to push the narrative of James being the goat. But he'll never be on Jordan's level. History will show that to be the case. There's so many astrix's by LeBron's name so far. But let's at least wait to look at his career as a whole when it's finished and see what we think then.

  • I think going to 8 straight is better than 3 and 1 8 straight just going against the teams he had to face 8 straight and being the best player on the floor even in losing is the greatest thing about LeBron legacy 8 straight is very hard

  • Well Kareem is the all time leading scorer and we debate or actually you debate Jordan and Lebron, instead Jordan and Kareem, and I think that's just as ridiculous. Id actually agree with pierce, Lebron just past Kobe on the all time scoring list, difference is Kobe has 5 championships while lebron 3, and these days people talk about. Lebron being better than Kobe as if it's a foregone conclusion. I beg the differ, I think Kobe is ahead of Lebron, Kareem is most definetly ahead of Lebron that's not even debatable, Duncan had 5 chips, he was amazing, the question really. Should be is Lebron top 10. I agree he's not top 5, to me I don't find the controversial, quite the contrary.

  • In 14:30, its the same argument, in fact Russel plays less games so his average are better, the same for Karim. You cant make the argument of a team achievment to a player, a title is a group or team achievment so nobody its sayinf than Robert Horry who has 7 titles with a different team undefeated is better. In fact Lebron 9 finals is in the most finals plays for a player.

  • This is how to END the Michael Jordan and Lebron James Goat debate. You compare their Regular Season and Playoffs (Finals) stats (averages) Stats don't lie, and the ball doesn't lie. 🏀 What's on the back of a player's card: stats! Who has the best stats? Who wins? Air Jordan, or King James? Only stats matter. (objective) Everything else is subjective. Forget championships and MVPs. Bill Russell has 11 NBA championships, and nobody considers him the Goat but, the NBA Finals MVP trophy is named after him. (subjective) Kareem Abdul-Jabbar won NBA MVP 6 times but, nobody considers him the Goat. Because you vote for the MVP. (subjective) The NBA championship is a trophy created to be given to the best NBA team, and the NBA MVP is an award given to an NBA player by voters (subjective) So, anyone can win. Compare stats, Jordan versus Lebron, and let's end the debate. Which NBA player has the best stats? Who would you pick to start your team?

  • I hate how people don’t use logic 🤦‍♂️ Nobody was coming to Cleveland, NO ONE. If players don’t wanna be there they not coming. And Magic didn’t have to go anywhere bcuz he came in to the league with Kareem. Kobe cane in with Shaq (Prime), Bird had Mchale and Parrish. Y’all gotta cut this out. Cavs couldn’t build a team and that’s why he left. Now let’s be thorough, Lebron DID NOT JOIN OR MAKE A SUPER TEAM. People for the last time; if you don’t play or leave the team and they’re not SUPER, it’s not a super team. Lebron made teams super. There’s a difference. Yes he formed a good 3 headed monster in Miami. Did you see how the guy said Magic, Jordan, and Bird? Who considers wade or Bosh like magic and Bird? Love Wade, had a couple unstoppable runs but he’s not even mentioned in people’s Top 15. Just use logic that’s all I ask. Not bias and points. We can all make points.

  • Lebron in 2016 lead both teams in every statistical category in the finals.. Points, Blocks, Steals, Assists and Rebounds but ahh no iconic offensive moments just doing it against a 73 - 9 win team.. LeBron in 2017 the first player to ever average a triple double this was a against a team that went was 73-9 and added KD.. I mean this is ridiculous the hate is stupid.. LBJ has more clutch shots at a higher percentage in the playoffs than MJ.. There is not always a call for a buzzer beater in the finals.. Its super stupid..

  • Moving to create better opportunity is to be frowned on. Your success should be measured not by your own merits, but by the merits of others. Don't waste your time striving, you will never be better than _________ as long as we are deciding. Losing in the conference finals (or before that) is better than losing in the Finals. There should only be one way (one path) to success; don't try and carve out your own because we won't acknowledge it. I am right, you are wrong, and I must win! ---That's what all the "Jordan is the GOAT, bar none" mindless drones sound like.---

Now LeBron Resume and Pedigree is more than Worthy to be called that and Compared to the Reigning King. Is he the G.O.A.T? “NO” but he doesn’t have to be. He has a different Game and the fact that his overall numbers as being the Iron Man than no other proposed Goat can say. At this point in their career and I include Kobe in my Top 3. LeBron deserves to be in that Conversation because right now it’s just a Preference Thing.
