        Beyond the point, that 1on1 gesture from Jalen around 0:58 is legendary.

                    Let’s take away the publicity in the commercial and Michael Jordan being the top athlete of his time, most popular on earth. Make up a situation that would never happen like a one on one game that has nothing to do with actual professional basketball and throw in LeBron’s favor. Put Shaq and LeBron in a one on one game and Shaq would smoke Him just based off size and not giving the ball back and he’s nowhere near the abilities that LeBron has he’s just a big boy has nothing to do with actual pro basketball terrible argument. They compare only the offenses and it seems everyone forgets how good luck Michael Jordan was on defense. They have to compare half of Michael Jordan stats to even make it a question of which ones better between the two no one even mentioned the defense of side of the ball crazy world we live in.

                      MJ played in an era where you could actually play defense. Lebron plays in a cupcake era

                        I agree Mike would beat lebron one on one because that's his game but jalen rose has some dumb arguments against lebron.

                          Mike would get killed one on one. Lebron is bigger my 25-30 pounds and wayyyy more powerful with contact. Lebron jump higher and is long and quick. Y’all trippin. In one on one where lebron know he can’t pass. He would go straight attack and would would mike. Even if lebron drive and miss a layup he so big he would get that rebound over mike and score easily. Think about it. We talkin one on one and against and bigger faster more fast and more explosive player. If lebron drive every time there’s nothing mike can do and that’s just FACTS. Thats much speed and power coming for one man with no RIM PROTECTION

                            Jay Williams should stay off of bikes. Yes he needs smelling salts and its clear he's suffering from CTE. What a douchebag.

                              With Jay wills logic, that makes Westbrook better than Curry. This guys a fool and a clown. Someone fire him PLEASE

                                  its really dumb to compare mj and lebron; they are different type. speaking of 1-on-1 lebron is simply not comparable...

                                    In 50 years MJ will still be the player every great player is compared to ! With today's rules he'd avg around 45 a gm

                                          People love to mention Lebron's assists and rebounds, but he only averaged (slightly) more than Jordan because their positions demanded different responsibilities. The same people who say that Jordan wasn't a very good passer are wholly ignorant of the time period when Jordan played at the point guard position and put up *insane* stats.

                                          In the 88-89 season, over a period of 24 games:
                                          • He averaged 30.4 PPG, 10.7 APG, and 9.2 RPG
                                          • He had 12 triple-doubles
                                          • Holds record for second longest streak of consecutive triple-doubles, with seven
                                          • Recorded 10 triple-doubles in 11 games.

                                            Lebron can be checked. With MJ, it is artistry of finding a way to score and Lebron does not have that.

                                                  Jordan vs Kobe
                                                  Stop comparing Jordan to LeBron they played two different position two different styles LeBron is an all around player Jordan was an two way player.

                                                    Jay Williams is delusional. Kobe shut Lebron down in an all star game. Kobe is no where near the defensive player MJ was.

                                                      The disrespect towards MJ is disgusting.

                                                        MJ v LeBron is a very hard debate. MJ was a dog. Pure defense and pure offense. But LeBron is a beast that can play any position on the floor. So... idk

                                                          Lebron is the GOAT.

                                                            Jordan had to play PG for Bulls for a while...Averaged 32/10/11 with Monster games like 21/14/14...He could do it ALL...Only player in NBA History to Win MVP/DPOY/Slam dunk contest in "same" Year..."10" time scoring champion...Jordan was SUPERIOR on Offense "and" Defense....3 Time steals leader...Made more 1st Team All NBA Defense along with Defense player of the Year....Not to mention being a "PERFECT" 6-0 Finals "6" Finals MVPs and never allowing a game 7....Silly debate....MJ is the most ICONIC Sports Figure in History (MAYBE behind Ali)...Even the dudes "Shoes" were and still are the fabric of the sneaker culture

                                                                      • UtterJ424
