Magic and LeBron have many more similiarities in thier games. I watched all three of these guys play and MJ was arguably better than any of them, but a totally different style and system in which the other two played. I feel the MJ to LeBron comparison is like comparing apples to oranges.
I am not a big LeBron fan, or a Heat fan for that matter. I think there is validity in what Pippen said though. LeBron has the opportunity to match or even surpass MJ on accolades and resume in the rest of what is left of his carreer. If you don't agree, then you are bias somehow and blinded to LeBron's actual potential.
