You must have posted this to get attention, and surely it is what you got.
My only knock on Jordan is he did it while the NBA was transitioning. He did it post Bird/Magic era, Bad boys era, and in an era of expansion. In the late 80's the NBA added teams in Miami, Orlando, Charloote and Minnesota. In 1995, two additional teams were added. That diluted the NBA's talent pool and made it a tad easier for MJ. He still had to win in the Finals against some talented teams; Magic Johnson's last stand, the talented Blazers team, Charles Barkley's MVP season in Phoenix, a 64 win Sonics team, and twice against a tough and rugged Utah team.
In all if his time, Jordan collected hardware like no one other, and when it counted the most, he went a combined 6-0 in the Finals. And they did play defense back then, it is much easier these days.
LeBron was born to play basketball. He is the ringless king. Already having made it to two Finals (0-2 series, 2-8 record). He has 3 MVPS and is already a hall of fame player.
At this point, he is not Jordan.
