    lebron was also teammates with 12 hall of famers and Jordan only had 4. Lebron had 3x the amount of hall of fame teammates and still.managed to lose more finals then he won.

    The fact that you think that proves anything is hilarious. 4 of those players contributed nothing because they were super old. Now, again, do that to how many HoF players that Jordan played against vs Lebron played against. Lebron has played against nearly triple the amount of HoFers than Jordan did. Because again, THERE IS A MASSIVE SKILL DIFFERENCE

    Oh and donyou know why lebron wore #23 in both middle school, high-school and the pros? In honor of Michael Jordan. Even he doesn't support your arguement

    I don't care even a little about this argument, but it's pretty dumb to lean into the "Lebron played more HoFers" argument and point out the massive skill difference immediately after saying the HoFers Lebron played WITH don't count. If there's such a MASSIVE SKILL DIFFERENCE between now and then, that difference would also apply to Lebron's teammates.

    It took lebron 10 tries to win 4 championships
    It took Jordan 6 tries to win 6 championships.

    If lebron was a Gators coach you would have fired him after his 1st 2 tries. o_O:eek:

    Lebron who? And this Jordan guy needs to come up with some NIL dough before I even bother to ask who that is.

    Name one player in the NBA that doesn’t do that though. I agree it’s horrible but the nba LITERALLY promotes it. It’s an added dimension of NBA basketball now, whether you or I like it or not. Casual take my friend, casual take.

    James harden wins multiple MVPS off of flopping and getting to the line. Joel Embiid won MVPS this year, huge flopper. (Al Horford shut him down in the playoffs and sent him home btw ;)). Marcus Smart wins DPOY as a guard 2 years ago- biggest flopper in the game. It’s an NBA problem for sure. There are just as many highlights as Lebron flopping as there are him getting smacked in the face on a drive and not getting a call. I have said it before in this thread the NBA is the worst officiated sport, it is pathetic. At a certain point, as a player, you realize there is a strategy to it and you utilize it.

    I agree and my point the entire time has been that exact concept should be applied to LeBrons opponents. Which MJ stand refuse to do. I’ve said many many times that MJ didn’t play near the competition Lebron is, MJ played in a league that was watered down, smushed in between two legendary eras. The bird/magic era, and the Kobe, Duncan, Lebron, Shaq, etc, era. This has been my point literally the entire time.

    Another hilarious thing about this picture is that MJ played with 4 HoFers through out the portion of his career he started winning. The same team, with the greatest coach of all time, all in their physical prime. Lebrons HoF teammate lists is comprised of those players over 4 different teams. Usually 2 HoF teammates at a time, three at most. Old Shaq is on that picture, old Dwight Howard, old Ray Allen. Still, Ray Allen had a huge impact so that’s fair. By 2014, wades knees were ending his career. And obviously, lacking the greatest coach of all time part. How in the world do you think this picture makes MJ look superior? Context my friend. Context.

    You use the "old age " excuse but Of the 4 on jordans list is Toni kukoch (lol) and 100 year old Robert Parrish. And he got Rodman on the back-ish end of his career, when he was messing around with Madonna and Carmen Electra while wearing a wedding dress. So your argument is just silly. Lol. Pippen is the only legitimate HOFer on that list that he got during his prime.

    And you haven't even responded to the fact that Lebron has been wearing the #23 since he was 10 years old because of his idol, the guy he said is the greatest of all time and meeting him for the 1st time was one of the greatest moments of his life. He still wears #23 till thisnday after a short stint wearing #6.

    And how is it a knock on Jordan that he was able to win all 6 championships with a team he was drafted to that was abysmal before he got there? They were 26-54 the year before he was drafted. He stuck it out for 5 years before Phil Jackson became the head coach. Yet he stayed the course and turned the bulls into one of the greatest dynasty we've seen over that span. When things start going south and Lebron sees the writing on the wall with regards to his team not being any good he bolts to another team. Why? Why not sticking out and make them better like jordan, Bird or Magic ?

    You also haven't explained how the "greatest player ever" allowed himself to win a total of 2 games combined in 4 different NBA finals. (He was swept twice and and lost in 5 games twice so that's a record of 2-16 in 4 finals trips. 2-16 wow! Again if he were a gator coach or QB you'd been called him shit and called for his firing or benching with a record like that.

    You conveniently avoid the questions I've asked and keep saying everyone is more skilled now. So is he or is he not that much better then everybody?

    I bowed out. He fails to address any points of debate on this. Just continues to post double standard arguments and falsities. It's like politics at this point. No interest in discussion just winning an argument.
