you have to also remember that Jordan never faced the amount of great teams that Lebron is facing every night now. The Utah Jazz were probably the best team Jordan faced during his 6 world titles but you can't tell me that those Jazz would have beaten today's Celtics. ain't no way.

Jordan was/is the greatest of all-time but the marketing machine that the NBA and Nike put behind Jordan made him seem like a god and we're still feeling the effects of that today. I still watch about 20-30 of Jordan's regular season and playoff games on NBAtv every year, and I have to say, as great as he was, watching him doesn't impress me as much as watching Lebron play.


I have Kareem as the greatest ever. But Lebron at 23 better than Jordan at 23?

Give Jordan the same team Bron took to the finals and they don't get swept.

The 93 Suns with Barkley, KJ, Marjele, etc weren't a great team?
The 92 Blazers with Clyde, Porter, Duckworth, Robinson etc weren't a great team?

Jordan at 23 put in 37 a game, had over 200 steals and over 100 blocks.

When was the last time anyone did that?

When Jordan was 23.


I agree with your marketing statement though, it put him on a level so far above anyone else, its actually ridiculous.
