It's a natural comparison Jade. Both are incredibly gifted athletes and sometimes LeBron brings it on himself when he makes comments like he's "chasing the ghost". He openly admits it's MJ he's trying to run down. I personally don't have an issue with it because I believe he means it respectfully. It's obvious how much MJ impacted LeBron by the respect LeBron gives MJ. He not only wears number 23 himself, but even suggested that every team in the League should retire the number 23 in honor of MJ. That all speaks for itself. However, LeBron for whatever reason, will never receive the adulation from the fans the way MJ does. That burns LeBron fans and in turn they make ridiculous statements and that rile up MJ fans. You are a rare bird Jade, in so much that you are a fan of both players. That's the exception to the rule. Most of us are either team MJ or team LeBron.

Something else you're wrong about.

I have a hot tub time machine. Someone nap Lebron and we'll take him back to the '90s. Settle this ----.

Unless there is an injury or a significant player moving on to another team, we can all expect round 4 between the Cavs and Warriors. That's my biggest issue with the League today.
I wouldn't go that far...I'm not sold on the idea that GS would've beaten SA had Leonard not gone down. Possible, but not a foregone conclusion. Point taken, though...it's a GS/Cavs league for the most part. I honestly don't mind it...I don't have a team to root for anymore now that the Sonics are gone. If two teams happen to dominate for a few years, I think that makes things a little more interesting from a historical perspective.

I am an unabashed NBA fan. My team is Philly so I don't have a dog in the MJ/LeBron race. I don't mind comparison at all, in fact I actually enjoy a good conversation. Comments like chasing the ghost is totally a respect play from LeBron - I can't see how it would rile up the MJ fans but I really think any player mentioned as a possible heir to MJ's throne will get thrown under the bus.

Let's not forget what Thibs is building on up in Minnesota. These fluffy high offense teams are going to have a hard time against any team that plays actual defense.
