That's a matter of subjective opinion, which is fine. But it's not borne out by the facts. In 2017-2018, LeBron was second in the league in assists, while being in the top 3 in assists percentage.


He was in the top 10 in assists 3 of his 4 seasons with Cavs 2.0.

So I'll see your subjective opinion and raise you one -- Jordan was surrounded by better talent, and more consistent shooters. THAT's the real difference.

Lol.........Go talk to Jordan's ex-teammates.............then go talk to Lebrons.

Get back 2 me......

Lebron has 4-8 HOF / Allstar level teammates.

How many does does have? 2

Wade, Bosh, Allen, Irving, Love, IT.............better than all of Joradn;s teammates not named Pippen & Rodman.

lol Gray, how could you even say this knowing Jordan punched two of his teammates in practice and threatened to break the legs of another?

You act like LBJ played with all these guys at the same time. Plus, you're counting a well-past-his-prime Ray Allen and I-freaking-T? Come on man. In his first run, Jordan teamed with Pip and Horace Grant and a deep roster. In his second run, Jordan teamed with Pip and Rodman and a deep roster.

So, like Jordan, James teamed with a HOF talent and an All-Star Level talent in first title run.

In his second title run, James teamed with 2 likely HOFers. Just like MJ.

Tell me you'd take the supporting casts of any of the Heat or Cavs over those of any of the Bulls' rosters. I need another good laugh today.

Let the hate go!

Am I missing something? Did anyone here say LeBron James was greater than Michael Jordan? He's not on Jordan's level, but he's one of the top 10 best NBA players of all time.

LOL @ Chris Paul wanting Carmelo Anthony on the Rockets. Houston will miss Trevor Ariza's defensive intensity.....Anthony couldn't guard his own shadow.

I wouldn't call that first Bulls Championship roster "deep", not when Bill Cartwright, Will Purdue, Stacey King and Scott Williams are getting major minutes biggrin

Now those Showtime Lakers teams or those Celtics teams in the 80's I would classify as deep

Isaiah Thomas signs with Denver.

Jimmy Butler turned down a four year, $110mil extension from Minnesota.....smart move. He can make more next year, plus he's supposedly frustrated with the younger players, especially KAT. No need to committ long term.

Luc Mbah a Moute to the Clippers.

Jabari Parker's going to sign with the Bulls.

Jimmy Butler was smart to hold off and make more money but he's not the superstar he thinks he is. KAT is the future of that franchise.

But Jimmy P doesn't feel the young cats know what it takes to win.....sometimes I wonder too when I see KAT drifting to the 3-point line when he has a smaller man on him.

Are you watching the BIG3 tournament? I'm enjoying it more than I thought. I like watching cats I never heard of....where did David Hawkins come from?

Butler has a point but he's fighting a losing battle in MIN because KAT has the higher ceiling. I undertstand his frustrations with the game but KAT is looking to do what the bigs in his era are doing.

I've heard he wants to play with Kyrie, which mystifies me if he has trouble with mercurial guys (Rose, KAT).

Hadn't watched any Big3 yet, but mayble I'll catch some.
