Default Lebron is on Jordan's level now

The way Lebron plays the game, he's officially on Jordan's level now. He seems to be just toying with his competition, effortlessly destroying his competition.

The first quarter shows how good Lebron is compared to Durant.

I think the comparisons are old. I honestly care very little about who would win a one on one match and all of that.

I haven't seen enough of LeBron to judge. But something I do notice is that he'll be 13/17 for 34pts in a win and 13/17 for 34pts in a 15pt loss. A guy with his all universe talent should at least go down shooting in my opinion.

Not even close.

He is not even at Birds level btw. let alone MJ.

MJ's level is 32.5 / 8 / 8.

Larry Bird's level is 30 ppg 10+rpg double double.

LBJ is definitely playing unbelievable but 27 ppg isnt exactly 30 ppg or 32.5 ppg.

MJ > Bird > LBJ

That is agreed without a doubt.

But He is NO prime peak Bird.

He is NO prime peak MJ.

Just look at the stats of Bird & MJ at their physical peak. Both had better than LBJ stats.

Took him what? 10 seasons to play near MJ's level?

MJ was dominating since his early years.

Ok buddy. Now turn on your tv and go watch the game. You know, the hate goes old sometimes. Just let it go and watch top3 player all time playing the best bball in his life. You are missing history, thats what you are doing, and 3-4 more haters on this forum. And thats sad. If you couldnt watch Wilt and Russell, heck even Jordan and Bird, than take the opportunity to watch Lebron and stop hating already.

If he were, it'd be leading to rings and FMVPs. Plural. Let's see.

With the squad he has around him right now, there's no excuses.

Bird isn't worthy of lacing up LeBron's sneakers. Enough with this overrating of past players. Only one of them was as good as/better than LeBron, and that would be Jordan.

LeBron crushes Bird easily. He is the second greatest player to ever play the game.

He is scary. Consistently dominating more now. He has the occasional choke in the 4th, but they are fewer now.

I do think if OKC finishes with a better record than MIA Durant should win it based off team wins and stats.
