Try 6-0 in the Finals, 6 Finals MVP's, 5 Regular Season MVP's, Ten Scoring Titles (10!!!!!!!), 3 All Star MVP's, 2 Slam Dunk Titles, The Greatest Will in The History Of Sports, and the list can go on forever!!!!
What about LeBron!? No rings (Dallas will win this series), about to be 0-2 in the Finals, 2 MVP's because he was a ball hog on a horrid Cleaveland team where he was far and away THE guy there and treated like royalty, one scoring title (he has 9 more to go!!!!!!) and doesn't even show up when his team needs him the most (game 5 last year against Boston and last night)... Not to mention he is completely 100% ROBIN to D-Wades BATMAN!!!! Being on the Heat will never allow him to catch MJ in accolades! Period!!!! And not to even mention that the NBA talent level is at an all time low!!!! He is nothing more than a slightly bigger fish in a small pond.....
Point blank: MJ will always be greater than LeBron in every aspect...

People don't like the fact he left, but how can you blame him? The Cavs drafted him but he didn't ask to go there and just because he is fom Ohio shouldn't mean he can never leave. "They" just need to move on. All in all I believe it's just a matter of time before all is forgiven, just ask Kobe.

Paul Pierce was out there calling guys to come to Boston to play with him. Wade was out there convincing Bosh and LeBron to come play with him. Fact is LeBron made it to the finals with a Rag Tag team and instead of trying to lure help during the off season, he wanted to be on SNL and TV Award Shows.
I hate that excuse that Cleveland never gave him help, that is the biggest crock of BS. LeBron never made one call to anyone trying to convince them to come to Cleveland during Free Agency...why didnt he call anyone??? Because he couldnt commit to any free agents that he was in it for the long haul in Cleveland.
