Is Michael Jordan still considered the best?

Disagree. I wish he would have stayed, and all the reasons you list support him staying, yet look at him now compared to 4 years ago.

Lebron 4 years ago: Insecure, collapsed mentally under pressure, choked as often as he was clutch

Lebron now: Confident, strong willed, cool under pressure, good leader

Part of that is growing up, part of that is experience of winning multiple championships with strong support around him.

He wasted 7 years of his career in a crap town that did nothing to help him. I don't understand why anyone would stay and waste more of their career in that place. Irving will probably leave too. Brb winning championships or staying in a crap town and carrying the team with no help.

A lot of teams weren't great when they started out. But who's to say they wouldn't have gotten better players since then? It took Jordan 6 or 7 years to win his first title. His team was pretty weak when he started there too.

No, apparently Jordan played with a bunch of scrubs. LeBron had some future HOFers like Delonte West and Drew Gooden.


A lot of teams weren't great when they started out. But who's to say they wouldn't have gotten better players since then? It took Jordan 6 or 7 years to win his first title. His team was pretty weak when he started there too.

LeBron took Cleveland farther by himself than Jordan ever did in Chicago before Pippen.

I seriously doubt Cleveland would have "gotten better". That team has been on a downward spiral to the ****ter since he left and it began when he was still there. The owner is a choad and management has made terrible decision after terrible decision. "Hey, let's pick up Shaq and Jameson to help LeBron! They're definitely not old as ****!"

And who knows if Jordan would have stayed if he had lost another ECF to the Pistons. Who knows what would have happened if Jordan were drafted to a small market like Portland @ #2 instead of Chicago.

There's no solid argument for either side. Jordan may have never gotten 6 rings without Pippen. He may have left.

LeBron may have eventually won a ring in Cleveland, but he didn't, and he left.

Cleveland drafting Anthony Bennett should be enough for anyone to see that that is not the place to be.

He did it to win, its not that hard to figure out. He was tired of losing, and I doubt melo would put aside his ego like wade did. And Miami is paying Lebron more than NYC could. Its business, and he already said he doesn't care that people hate him cause he's making millions and I don't blame him, I wouldn't give 2 chits about the haters either

It's not just that lebron switched teams, it's that even before that season ended he was calling, texting, and meeting up with wade and bosh to form a super team. I have no problem agreeing Cleveland didn't help him much and it was smart for him to leave. It's the way he did it that's the problem.

"The decision" and all his other super diva, phaggy time nonsense is what's blemished his career. Kobe is a huge diva but in a totally different sense. Kobe is cold blooded and has a drive that rivals Jordan's. Lebron's drive resembles Dwight Howard's.

I'll give him credit for realizing he needed 2 other super stars to win championships though. To anyone that thinks bosh isn't elite, lol. On almost every other team bosh would be a #2 or even #1 option and he'd average 20 and 10. He fits the heat system absolutely perfectly and is content with "average" numbers.

Keep trying to live vicariously through lebron, phaggots.

Lebron has 1000x more drive than Kobe ever did. Kobe goes 6-24 in game 7s. Lebron drops the most ppg of all-time in game 7s and averages even more ppg than Jordan in elimination games. THAT'S drive and will.

Kobrick doesn't have a single game in his career on par with Lebron's ECF 2012 game. Lmfao@thinking just because Kobe frowns on the court and takes full retard shots bricking in the clutch, he has drive. Please.

Strong delusion, chief. A poll of active NBA PLAYERS, not keyboard coaches said that they would rather have Kobe take the last shot over lebron. Literally every player polled picked Jordan or Kobe. Not one single player chose lebron. But yea, your opinion carries more weight than actual players. Stay thirsty my friend. And by friend I mean never my friend, phaggot.

Thank you. I have been saying this for years and getting negged. Not everyone is fortunate enough to be drafted to LA or Chicago. All Cleveland had to do was get lebron 1 other all star player and they could have multiple championships. They failed to do that so they paid the price. After he left they won something like 20 games.

Lebron may not be the goat but no one can deny that he is one of the rarest basketball talents we will ever see in our lifetime.

Look at it like a business example. You can stay working for that small beverage company you work for as the executive in the nation but you know that your stock is only going to gradually rise and your company refuses to give you the personnel to help grow the company, or you have the opportunity to go work for coca cola with 2 other good executives that you know have proven themselves and your stock is going to rise immediately. Hmmm decisions decisions

I agree, but he certainly strung the Cavs and their fans along unnecessarily. With the decision he gave them a lot of hope and then slammed the door shut in their faces. He could have very easily said at the end of the year that he was going elsewhere and the Cavs could have planned accordingly. The team didn't give him a lot of support but the fans sure did. Slapping the fans in the face in any market in any sport is a sure-fire way to be hated.

Look at how classy guys like Roy Halladay did it. He told the Jays he wanted to leave to have a shot at a title. He thanked the fans and even took out a whole page ad in the local paper thanking them for the years of support. He'll go down as a god in the eyes of Jays fans.

Obviously no athlete really owes anyone anything. They'll always look out for themselves first but it takes minimal effort to keep them pleased. Lebron lacked that.
