Default MJ has a perfect playoff record

He never lost as the favorite, or even when it was 50/50 - he only lost as a heavy underdog.

Otoh, Lebron loses as the favorite all the time: 2009 ECF, 2010 ECSF, 2011 Finals... and also when it's 50/50: 2014 Finals.

Therefore, Lebron's 2/6 and his other failures are legit, while MJ has a perfect playoff record (never losing when it's 50/50 or greater)

This is just the 234125 time I see this topic. Let see how many posts are necessary to bring the 1-9, 6-24, 81 and some other fantastic unbiased opinion to the thread.

you've never seen this topic before stop lying.. this isn't about 1-9

it's about mj never losing as a favorite or when it was 50/50 - therefore he never really lost

while lebron, kobe and everyone else did lose when it was 50/50 or better - that makes them losers

In '98 the Bulls were considered underdogs against the Jazz.

Are you really that retarded? I cant think someone with be such an imbecile to contradict himself three sentences later.

Since Lebron was the heavy underdog in 2007 as well.

Where this gets interesting is when you realize that the Bulls were 17-4 with Jordan back in the lineup, so while Jordan was admittedly a slightly watered down version of himself, the team had shown no issues reintegrating him back into the fold and returning to their previous elite regular season form. The same regular season winning that leads LBJ detractors to get on him for losing in the playoffs with 60-win teams.

Jordan may not have lost as the "heavy favorite" in '95, but it was probably an example of a "50/50" deal.

Lebrons 8 series loss:
4 x finals loss
1 x ECF loss
3 x 2nd round loss


Jordans 7 series loss:
2 x ECF loss
2 x 2nd round loss
3 x 1st round loss (2 x swept 1st round)



One was coming up short very deep in the playoffs and one wasnt good enough for that and hence choked early....

Lebron > Jordan.

Okay...so all that means he wasn't that good as an underdog.

Frontrunner.
