Is Lebron better than MJ? Who is the better basketball player?
Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player in the history of the National Basketball Association.
Roll the credits....
This is a topic that everyone talks about. You have to look at this argument in two different categories. Championships vs talent. With all due respect to MJ, Lebron is a better all around player than MJ, but we can't put Lebron into the discussion of all time greats until he wins his 1st championship ring then more after. I believe though that Lebron James has the chance to become better than MJ in the future it all depends on those rings.The statistics are about pretty even. I would have to say MJ was a better scorer than Lebron is but Lebron has the edge in passing and defense. Lebron is a physical specimen and basically un-guardable at his size 6'9'' 250 lbs. MJ was only around 6'6'' 220 lbs. Here is a link to their stats through 26 years. I hope this helps.

I believe that if (when) Miami wins game 1 in Miami and get the psychological momentum that they will need to win game 2, Boston will be wore out game 3 and 4.
