5 Reasons Why LeBron Will Never Be Better than Jordan

Jordan-LebronKudos to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for just pulling off a historical comeback in the NBA Finals vs. the Golden State Warriors.  Although it was a remarkable accomplishment, this story I wrote more than a year ago still applies. 

Here we go again with this of who is better. For years people have been searching for the air apparent to Michael Jeffrey Jordan. They try to compare Kobe, LeBron, Magic, and some had the audacity to compare Harold Minor a.k.a “Baby ” to his airness back in the day.  Due to his back to back championships and obvious skill set, LeBron James has been the latest ballplayer to be mentioned in the conversation with .  LeBron himself even said he wants to be the greatest of all time but admitted he had some years to play to before he should even be considered.  Well LeBron, I think that is a great goal but these are the top 5 reasons why he won’t be able to dethrone Mike.

5. The Change in Rules

Jordan-Rules-vs-Pistons-600x479Unfortunately this one is out of King James’ hands. Since the league has become more offensively friendly by eliminating hand checking it makes it easier for superior athletes to drive to the basket. Also the emergence of flagrant fouls keeps the violence down when players drive to the middle. In Jordan’s day, especially playing teams like the Knicks and the Bad Boys of Detroit, you would get virtually murdered trying to drive to the hole. With hand checking the way it was back then it was essential for players to have a great mid-range game. LeBron’s mid-range game is suspect because of his streaking shooting. LeBron definitely has the strength to be productive driving but his sometimes shaky mentality may have kept him from penetrating back then. The point is, LeBron plays in era where the rules are more catered to the offensive player.

  1. I am tired of hearing that LeBron James is even in the same league as Michael Jordan. I watched them both play for many years. I have tried to give James the benefit of the doubt because there is a bias against anyone who presumes to approach “His Airness” in greatness. But, greatness is determined by what you do over time in key moments. James has had moments of greatness, but he has also had moments where he didn’t show up. Who would you rather have in a championship game, a healthy LeBron or a Michael Jordan with the flu? You had to think for a moment, didn’t you?
