No.

The Heat are a collection of very good players....they are not a great "team". They don't play like a team....they play like an all-star squad.


That would be because there not a team they are a bunch of selfish me first guys, not to mention there best player is the NBA's biggest choke artist.

Lebron 0-2 in the Finals. Hmmmmmmmmm

What was MJ's record again?

That's all I get from that.

Now Jordan played 3 years in College, he didn't come into the League as a 12 year old.
6 years in the League then he got his 1st NBA title.
Lebron is in year 9 currently.
Still nothing.

By year 9 Kobe had 3 rings and 4 NBA Finals in the books.

I am not bashing LaBron....he is a hell of a player. I am talking more about the combination of players the Heat have. Wade and LaBron don't really "compliment" each other. They are very similar players.

When you watch the Heat, there just seems to be something missing that you see in great "teams". They seem more like an All-Star team than great team.

They definitely have the most talent with LaBron, Wade, and Bosh. It is the team chemistry that I can't figure out.

Well, from someone that still can't spell LeBron right after 9 years idk if I should take this seriously or not.

The only defense LeBron fanboys have left is his age. What's the next excuse going to be?


By age 35 Michael Jordan had an NCAA Championship, 2 Olympic Gold Medals, 5 NBA MVP Awards, 6 NBA Finals MVP Awards, & 6 NBA Championships.

In LeBron's first 9 years he has 3 NBA MVP Awards & an Olympic Gold Medal. That leaves him 8 years to get another Olympic Gold Medal, 2 NBA MVP Awards, 6 NBA Finals MVP Awards, & 6 NBA Championships. Since, you know, we're going by age.

However, LeBron is a 2X NBA Finals Loser & that's something Jordan could never accomplish.

Yes comparing LeBron at age 27 to Jordan at age 35 makes a lot of sense. Why are you penalizing LeBron for coming into the league at age 18 and being the man on his team? Do you think Jordan could've came straight out of Laney High at 18 and been the man in the NBA? I don't. Dude didnt even start at Carolina his freshman year, nor was he the man on that team. When I see Jordan groupies try to portray him as perfect, or act like he never lost a game, or lost in the playoffs, or had a bad game, it makes me realize how Mike could be so absorbed to keep hangers on around him all these years. Jordan was not PERFECT, he had went thru adversity too no matter how much you try to portray otherwise.

The fact you're up here comparing LeBron to Jordan without blinking an eye is the ultimate compliment.

I wasn't comparing LeBron at 27 to MJ at 35. You brought up the age comparisons first. I simply stated that to keep pace with MJ LeBron must win an 2 MVPs, 6 Finals MVPs, & 6 NBA titles in the next 8 years.

Thats if he were chasing Jordan, which he is not. If it were about keeping pace, Jordan failed at keeping pace with Russell. He came up 5 rings short. LeBron is chasing LeBron and setting his own mark, instead of following in Jordan's footsteps. I applaud him for that, because we don't need another Jordan, one is enough.

Why is LeBron so weak minded? Once Granger confronted him tonight this dude disappeared. When that happens to the greats they'll kill ya for that...


But I can't believe Miami is down 2-1 right now... Gotta be hard standing up for LBJ anymore.
