      Don't mean to be that guy, but you made a stat error when you compared Lebrons 2015 stats. You put 8.8 stl, instead of 8.8 ast.

    I don’t understand people because cavs fans say lebron, Lakers fans say Kobe but everyone says Jordan

    I’m not a lakers or cavs fan so I say Jordan but I thing that kode is better then born because Kobe has a better career, was able to do better then bron with good teammates and kode was 5-2 for the finals and he did all of that while being is the west
    *both Jordan and bron didn’t do that they both had easy roads to the finals*

        It wasn't little help but lbj was by far the biggest reason they won, Kyrie made the shot, but LeBron kept it close that entire 4th quarter with his defense and scoring

                He doesnt like posting up coz it lessens his assists. He likes padding his stats in the pick and roll

                    "And that many consecutive appearances, will never be equaled" ummmm.... I think you're forgetting BILL RUSSELL. He's the guy that went to 8 straight championships well before your oh so holy Lebron James. Not only that, he actually won 11 total out of his 13 year career....

                        A true goat is a fierce competitor..
                        Lebron is a great player, but not on MJ level. Accept the facts..

                          Mj played lesser opponents, never played a team as good as 07, 13 Spurs and the warriors. Jordan played Reggie Miller and Pat Ewing while bron played Pierce+Ray+kg+rondo, KD+Steph+Klay+dray

                        I swear it looked like lebron was being paid to play like shit in 2011, throwing the finals, i just can't fathom how he would not back down Berea for a closer shot to the rim

                                          If the Warriors donated half there roster to the eastern conference- it would balance out the entire league.

                                              I’ll vote for 2007 finals as the best. Sure he got swept, but he had just defeated the mighty pistons, he was 22, young, raw and unrefined, carrying with no supporting cast. He was the team.

                                                                              • Crazy Candy Crush
