Only superstar??? Pippen is a top 50 player. And Jordan never won before Pippen. Lebron took the Cavs to the finals with nobody.
Wade can barely play 2 games in a row and Bosh was ok.
I'm actually not a fan. I could care less about Lebron. But he is the most dominant all around player we've seen.
Jordan definitely was a better scorer and had that killer instinct though
MVP 4 out of the last 6 years and it should have been

If anyone is overrated it's Howard.

MJ and Lebron don't play the same position, so yeah, MJ would have his hands full on defense, but I have not doubt he could burn Lebron on offense at will, just like he did anyone else. We will never see the two play one on one for real, because Jordan is in his 50s. But just Wiki MJ and look at his accolades. He was voted North American Athlete of the 20th Century by ESPN. The Century. In any sport, out of 100 years, the biggest sports outlet in the world said he was the best in 100 years in any sport on our continent. Those are pretty strong words.
You can't compare the guys tit for tat. Lebron is a PF, Jordan was a SG. I just look at it like, how many games did you win? How good did you make it look? And what kind of an impact did you really leave on the game?
I agree with you, Lebron is the most freakish physical specimen I have probably ever seen. A guy similar is Adrian Peterson. You just see the way they are built and you are like WTF? Thats not even human.
But being a physical freak doesn't make you the best baller or have the best style. I will give Lebron the freakish Gazelle thing. True that.
But do you guys not remember Michael Jordan in the air? Lebron can slam it home with authority, I have never seen Lebron take off and go completely sideways...
Jordan was a freak in the air.

I just have to continue to disagree about the best you have every seen. Not even close to me. Not yet. Not even in the same ballpark. Yet.

LeBron is one of my favorite athletes, because of the way he goes about his business on and off the court. Sure, he got some grief for the televised decision and the stupid not 3, 4, 5 stunt, but everyone makes some stupid decisions. I think its pretty awesome that he's going back to Cleveland.
Jordan was a bad mofo, but Lebron seems more down to earth to me. They were/are very different players. Jordan was the classic 2 guard, and Lebron plays whatever position he wants.

Having great style in the air doesn't make you the best either. I actually do agree that MJ is the greatest. I just think it's much closer than you think.
Lebron is a small forward, not a power forward. And the fact is he can play point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward, and center. And would be the best player in the league at each position.

Maybe I am just an old head. Old dogs ya know. I just feel like the Jordan era wasn't all that long ago. And check the shoes on half the leagues feet to this day and you will what kind of an impact he left on the league.
I have seen quite a few things from Lebron where I have just said, DAMN!!!!!!! But with Jordan, I don't remember a single game going by, not seeing something jaw dropping. When he got it dialed in, learned the triangle offense and help close with Phil, he became not only the greatest player we have ever seen, he became the greatest basketball mind we have seen as well. Jordan was the biggest student of the game ever.
