Isiah Thomas being kept off the 92 Dream Team will haunt him until his last breath. I think even his therapist has had enough of it.

MJ was a competitive mofo and far more than Lebron.

MJ claims he'd never play on a super team which isn't true. He played on a super team when the Bulls' team agreed with their GM to acquire unhappy Dennis Rodman from the Spurs. Rodman was the reigning NBA rebounding champion prior to joining the Bulls and remained so his 3 years with the Bulls. He was also a great defensive player. These facts are seldom mentioned. It was in Rodman's 1st year with them that they set the NBA 72 - 10 record. MJ never won a ring w/o Pippen. The Bulls were favored in all six of their Finals' games. Another fact that is seldom mentioned. LeBron rarely played on a team that was favored in the Finals. He played with lesser talent than MJ. Replace LeBron and MJ on their respective teams and I suspect LeBron would own more rings than MJ. Pippen was a second fiddle who never won a season or Finals MVP even during MJ's two seasons out of the game. His bias for MJ prevents him from being objective when talking about LeBron. MJ was great to watch play b-ball. He won his rings with one team, was surrounded by better talent than LeBron, his last 3 rings were won on a superteam (MJ, Pippen, and Rodman) and his team was favored in all of the Finals they played. LeBron who is taller and I suspect stronger, and just as athletic, and a good defender, would, in my opinion, beat MJ one on one. Folk are entitled to have their favorite player but if you're going to compare MJ vs LeBron and ignore the advantages team- and competition-wise that MJ had, your comparison is incomplete and biased. See link for facts on MJ wanting Rodman on his team. http://www.espn.com/chicago/nba/story/_/id/6854942/dennis-rodman-addition-put-bulls-top

Kobe was just as good of a scorer as Michael, so why isn't he in this convo if it's all about scoring? LeBron is #1 in any all star game of any era. He can put up 40-50 like MJ at will, he can get a triple double at will, he can makes incredible blocks that MJ couldn't wet dream of. MJ was the best scorer, LBJ is the best overall player due to his massive increase in other areas and only slight drop off in scoring. This is coming from a Lakers fan too. 1. LeBron 2. MJ 3. Kobe 4. Kareem 5. Shaq 6. Magic 7. Bird

First of all Thomas should never thank Jordan he kept him off Olympic and for years and claimed he didn't. 2nd They never said Jordan was great at first,they classified him only a scorer,then years later an defender. And only when he got 1st da coach ,2nd the OFFENSIVE SYSTEM(the Bulls & Jordan never without these 2) 3rd certain key players who were still healthy & stayed numerous years...(the benefit of big market compared to a small market exp: Cavs) was he able to win then be called the greatest. But da moment any of these pieces are missing his main achievement is his scoring cause he not even going to the Championship....

LeBron will exceed Jordans stats and is already physically superior. They'll ride that 6 game final wins as why Jordan is better. That's a team win not an individual.

I guess this and his past statements don't really contradict. Pippen once said that LeBron is probably the greatest player to play the game lol. Michael Jordan was "probably the greatest scorer". So in this context he probably could still favor Jordan.
