MJ vs James
1.) Who is the better scorer? MJ
2.) Better Defender? Push at this point. James could end up better but MJ was 9 time 1st team all defense.
3.) Better Passer? Id have to say James
4.) Better closer? MJ and its not close
5.) Who has the most heart? again MJ and its not close
how is James better?
1. Mj for sure, his game was pretty.. the fade, the crossover, the dunks, the quick first step, the layups.. None of the crappy showboating that lebron does, none of the look at me now celebrating that lebron does.
2. Jordan was a better defender, he was always on the first team defense, he was always deflecting passes or in the right spot, usually shut down his man.
3. Better passer, I guess lebron wins here, jordan did find a way to get People like Luc Longley, and bill wennington the ball, along with steve Kerr.
4. better closer? Jordan all day, itll take lebron another 5 years to hit mj levels of being clutch.
5. heart? MJ Lebron is a big kid, quits when it gets rough.
i agree lebron isn't even close....
