Chicago wasn't a dynasty before Jordan got there, but they weren't the Cavaliers or Clippers either as far as trying to build a winning NBA franchise year in and year out.
The Lakers and Boston...are well...the Lakers and Boston. Nuff said.
And Barkley? I guess if the team you were drafted by to be the man to follow up the legacy of Dr J and Moses Malone decides to trade you after you spit in the face of a fan, and then you bolt from Phoenix to go to Houston and ride Hakeem Olajuwon to a title, that's a different story or something.
No I think MJ, Bird and Magic comparing Lebron, Wade and Bosh to themselves is giving a little too much credit for that trio. They might all be great basketball players, but none of them are in league with any of them, except Barkley.
I guess the Bobcats did Adam Morrison foul by drafting him and trading him to the Lakers so he could aquire two rings for keeping Kobe's seat warm, instead of having him ride the pine to a championship for Charlotte.
Whatever, Lebron did what Lebron wanted to do. Not what Jordan wanted to do, or wanted him to do, or any of the rest.
Lebron is Lebron. He ain't Magic, Byrd or Jordan yet. And neither are Bosh and Wade.
But it does make for great butthurt.
