        Being a Detroiter I'm a Bad Boy's fan for life but c'mon Zeke... Bron Bron is a GREAT B-Ball player but in the era where you had to almost decapitate someone to get a Flagrant 1 JORDAN literally took over games almost single-handed.

                      What would you expect Isiah Thomas to say? Do people not know the bitter rivalry the Pistons and the Bulls had? And, it wasn’t a enemy’s on the court and then go have coffee together as friends after the game type of rivalry. There was real hate between those two teams and those two players.

                        I'd take Bird over Lebron for the same reason T-Mac said about MJ - at the end of games Bird ALWAYS wanted the ball and he took over throughout his career.

                                                        Isiah Thomas has a bias because he has always disliked Michael Jordan. Notice how he first puts Kareem at the top then puts Jordan and LeBron an immediate second place. LeBron is easily in the top 3 with Jordan then Kobe then LeBron. You just can't put LeBron above either of them because he's NEVER played defense on the same level of Jordan or Kobe. He isn't in the same ballpark on offense so how can you possibly compare them

(But) he often bulls his path to the basket, over his defender, making contact, and in my opinion, committing a charging foul but rarely called for it. He gets away with a lot of ball handling mistakes - like traveling - rarely called. Jordan played straight up great basketball.

Not just that, but lebron never had a Scotty, Dwade/Kyrie Bosh/Klove were more scorers than they were ball handlers, so lebron playing the way he plays is what his role was, he never needed or was forced to switch to something different. The ONE time he was completely forced to do it, it was vs golden state that first year where he had a monster series and lost pretty much because the coach didn't know how to properly pace a player in that situation

                                                                              Jordan is better than Lebron. It's not even contestable in any way. Tell me something Lebron does that Jordan couldn't or doesn't do better? You could perhaps argue Lebron is the better facilitator. I would suggest that if Jordan so wished to be the greatest PG of all time he could. However that brings me to my next point. I think in any of these goat debates you have to ask who would you give the ball at the end of the game. I can't see how you would give the ball to anyone in the history of basketball other than Jordan. As for Lebron? He mightn't even be the second option on his own NBA teams (who you want trying to score? Lebron or Kyrie Irving?) I'm very comfortable with Lebron having the ball at the end of games. So many way's to limit him not the least of which is if you get in a spot you don't like, foul him, send him to line. Good decision maker, and he knows that the right decision is to give the ball to someone else. As for what you do in the last 5 mins of a game with Jordan. You get him the ball and then get everyone out of the way and into the various, wide open layup, wide open shot position's in the very unlikely event that Jordan decides the best option is to put the fate in the hands of a lesser being than him. Generally he'd try and score over all 5 defender's then trust Luuuuuuuc to throw down a wide open dunk to win the game or similar and take the result out of his hands. And that'd be the right decision.

                                                                              Now. As for a question I think more interesting. Is Pippen better than Lebron?

                                                                              (sidenote: if Lebron could ever have been bothered to fix his shot then there's a conversation. He could have, he has the ability for sure, but he didn't and is therefore greatly flawed as a player. And that is what separates average from good, good from great, great from goat, never stop improving, identify your flaws and fix them if you can. He clearly has the ability to be a great shooter. As it is he can't be even be relied upon to make free throws)

                                                                                      Who would you pick? The guy you won with or the one you never played with? If LeBron won 5-6 titles Scottie would still choose Jordan.

                                                                                            surely he could have won couple more but he is the best all around player ever to have graced the court. he will also have all time scoring title( so much for not being a scorer). his fitness his exemplary( mike was cool too).
                                                                                            both can have their own mountains. both could punk one and all in any era.

                                                                                            mj would drop 50 and lebron would take all of them to school with his incredible play making and rim skills.
