|im a product of the jordan era no doubt and share the opinion that he is the most astonishing,strong-willed compelling athlete that has ever played any sport and his record speaks for itself so no point poring over all his achievements...but i am also not blind and recognise evolution is sports,and the world in general obviously,and it cannot be denied that lebron,if continuing on his present path,will b easily considered at worst the second greatest player to ever play the game...and,depending on his team-related accomplishments,his legacy could perhaps surpass that of jordan...perhaps.....let time decide.

as 4 their physical gifts ya hav 2 giv it to lebron in the height and strength department and leaping ability is pretty even(despite mikes legendary status in this aspect),shooting isnt all that clear cut,edge just goes to jordan...and killer instinct/will to win/desire is no contest,jordan hands-down.hell,forget just sports he mite b the MOST competitive human being that ever drew breath,this dude despised losing with a passion.....but one thing dat really pisses me off is wen people claim lebron is quicker/faster than mike,which is ludicrous to me.go to youtube and check sum of jordans early career games wen he 1st hit the league,dude was a blur and cud get to the rim at will.talking iverson/derrick rose type quickness.
one thing dat also shud not b forgotten also is that while lebron cud potentially pile up championships with his "super-friends",the likes of wade,bosh,ray allen and watever other gun-4-hire miami picks up along the way jordan 3-peated,yes 3-PEATED!!!!!with guys named bill cartwright,b.j armstrong,cliff levingston,stacey king,bobby hansen hansen,jud beuchler,john paxson,craig hodges...........scottie pippen aside,not exactly a hall-of-fame line-up im sure u wud agree..dude was a beast and,till proven otherwise over the fullness of time,will remain as the best to walk this earth
