Default Re: Bulls effectively use the "Jordan Rules" against LeBron James.

I think this is the only way teams can hope to slow LeBron down at this point. You have to physically check him every trip down the court, and hope he loses his concentration. If that means giving a flagrant foul, so be it.
It'll never work effectively on LeBron because he still has Wade and Bosh while Jordan only had a young Pippen who was pretty raw.
