I know this is the millionth LBJ thread and all, but I feel this was worth watching, if you haven't seen it already...


YouTube - ‪Michael Jordan's "Response" to LeBron James' Nike Commercial‬‏

I know it's a mash-up, but it definately fits.

Jordan never lost a Finals. So LeBron will never be a Michael Jordan. It was silly to compare LeBron to him. Jordan had the mental toughness to score when all the pressure was on him. Now it appears that LeBron can't get it done in the Finals no matter what team he is on.

LeBron is another Scottie Pippen. He can play second fiddle to a Michael Jordon and help win a championship. But he can't lead a team to a championship the way Jordon did.

Lebron's style of play reminds me of Clyde drexeler and Magic johnson.

Not sure why he was ever compared to Jordan. That would be wade and kobe.

Totally agree. I always thought of Lebron as a "Magic Johnson".

Lebron actually is very comparable to Pippen, just with more scoring punch.

Ok, his passing ability reminds me of magic

His ability to go coast to coast and hammer it down reminds me of Clyde Drexeler


What about his game reminds you of pippen?

Aside from being about the same size( Lebron's a little heavier), similar athletic ability( Lebron's more athletic overall), similar slashing ability, ability to defend positions 1-4, streaky jumpshot, ability to go coast to coast and make a play on the break, and essentially playing the point forward position??

Nothing at all, TVSG..... nothing at all.
