Nobody cares if LeBron is as good or better than Jordan. Like he said, he's LJ, not MJ.

I am.

No doubt an amazing player and yes probably the best to play.  But some act as if there has never been any other dominant players.  And Jordan fans love to talk rings, what about Russell?

And yes, as others have said, players will have to be compared to Jordan for the rest of time (like LeBron) and people will say things like "he couldn't do it alone like Jordan did" when Jordan played with great players... it's just so fabricated and not based in fact anymore. 

That's what bothers me most.  The same thing goes on with Kobe (as if he wasn't playing with a legend, Shaq, to win most of his titles and was the team's second best player).

Of the 7 people thus far who voted that he is no Bill Russell and seem absolutely 100% certain that he isn't as good as Russell, I wonder how many of them ever saw Bill Russell play a single game.  My guess is 0.

Lol my thoughts exactly.

Is that really relevant? Nobody's ever seen that Jesus guy (100% sure), but a couple billion people believe in him. Ya know?

A lot of people nowadays have never seen Jordan play a single game either, what's your point? WIll he be less good another 20 years from now when all the younger people will say Lebron was the greatest ever?
