Guys who hate Lebron for that reason have too much time, too little money, and too few women.

he was still the best player in the nba @ cleveland


jordan,on the other hand, stuck w/chicago (who sucked @ the time) and made it a powerhouse
Boohoo for the first reason

Not sure how the second one is a knock on him

Yeah, the Bulls were bad, but when he got there they were not a powerhouse right away. Heck, it took MJ 7 years to get to the finals. It only took 'Bron 4. Now the difference is that MJ won when he got there obviously, but Lebron's Cavs were a good team with players much worse than the Bulls had.

That's not really an apples to apples comparison. Jordan,for the first 6 years in his career, had to deal with notably the Isiah-Dumars-Rodman-Laimbeer Pistons and the Bird-Parish-Mchale-Dennis Johnson Celtics. There was no team in the Eastern Conference on that level when Lebron took the Cavs to the finals in 2007. Quite simply, the East was much better in the mid-late 80's than it was for the better part of the 2000's. Most people probably couldn't name 3 of Jordan's teammates when he entered the NBA in 1984,and Pippen and Grant didn't develop into dependable complimentary talents till 1990. The talent level in the 80's was such that you basically needed 3 HOFs on your squad if you were going to win anything.
