It's ashame he even has to be compared to Michael Jordan.
They don't even play the same position.
I suppose it's a "compliment" to be mentioned in the same sentence as MJ but most people who do so do it with the intention of putting LeBron down in one way or another.
Kobe Bryant also had to deal with Jordan God complex as well.
Neither he or LeBron were allowed to just "be" and play their game. No one compares other point guards to "Magic Johnson".
On the other hand Steph Curry was allowed to blossom into a "superstar" without being compared to Michael Jordan or any other player. This is how it should be for every player.
Generally speaking every generation has it's "heroes" and refuse to believe a newer generation has anyone close to being as good as what was around in (their time).
My father swore Joe Louis was a better fighter than Muhammad Ali and John Wayne was a better cowboy than Clint Eastwood.
Personally I long for watching Joe Montana play in a Super bowl over Tom Brady. It's just one of those (generational) things!
