And how many of those years was Kareem the best player?

Because we know that MJ was THE driving force of all the Bulls' championships.

Hmm... While Jordan was facing the Bad Boy Pistons and the Larry Legend Celtics, LeBron was facing the Wizards & Nets on his way to the only real competition he faced in the East, a.k.a the Pistons.

Then when he made it to the Finals, he got outperformed by Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan.

Beat a very mediocre 41 win Wizards team without their two All-Stars, another shitty 41 win Nets team, and a old and clearly declining Pistons team.

You telling Jordan couldn't do that?

God damn the East was pathetic back then.

Even more pathetic than it is today.

Pointing out that Lebron lost, in the finals, w/ a championship caliber squad actually holds more weight.
So does pointing out that Jordan lost in the 2nd round with a championship calibre squad.

Something people refuse to admit about Jordan that they always bash for Kobe for is lack of playoff success without stacked teams. Unless Jordan had a team the calibre of being heavily favoured to win the championship, he never came close to a finals. In 2009, Kobe won a title with a team no better than teams Jordan couldn't sniff a finals appearance. Not saying Kobe is better. Just pointing out how people refuse to have perspective when it comes to Jordan.

Not only they don't give lebron props for bringing the weakest finalist supporting cast in nba history to somewhere they didn't belong, they count it against him for saying his 1/3 in the finals. Now in 2011 he deserves all the criticism, but the year against the spurs? they had no business being in the finals if not for lebron

LOL what year did Jordan lose in the 2nd with a "championship caliber squad". When Pippen was posting like 10 ppg?

Pippen took like 4 years to develop his game on top of sh*tting the bed in game 7 of the ECF in 1990 with migraine, obviously most kids on this board don't understand that concept.

You're lying to yourself too if you don't think Jordan couldn't win a title with Gasol + Odom + Bynum + Artest.

It is obviously better to get murdered in the 1st round. MJ "The GOAT" did it quite often after all, so it is good, isn't it?

I will give him that game 5 in detroit though. He lit it up. But other than that, his mediocre offense that year was just sufficient enough to get it done, while his team's defense really clamped down opposition.... all done in the weak East against Wizards and NJ. But the Spurs, a real team, exposed them in the end.

Nope. Just making the point that we seem to completely ignore context when it suits us.
