Probably should wait a few years for this but I am sure we have all thought about it at some time. Can Lebron James be better than Michael Jordan? Lebron is off to a faster start and his team is doing better than Jordans Bulls in his 1st few years. So what does Lebron have to do to overthrow Jordan as the best modern baller? Obviosly the 6 titles stand out but Jordan did not get his 1st until his 6th season. Still its going to be tough to match 2 three-peats. It is all going to boil down to the post-season and if James can display the same clutch play. James is also going to have to break Jordans playoff 63 point record at some point as well. Is it just me or does Lebron not seem as dominate as Jordan was? Their offensive numbers appear about on par. Both score over 30 and have high FG%. Jordan does have James on defense as Jordan was also the best defensive player at his position. For now Lebran shows a lot of promise but he has a long way to go and many accomplishments to make. Question is can he do it with the Cavs or will he eventually need a larger market like Jordan had. Lebran is a nicer guy if that means anything.
