LeBron James says Cleveland Cavaliers are still in need of a point guard

Plug '92 Michael Jordan on the Cavs' roster this past season. Do you think that would be enough help for Jordan to beat the Warriors?
No chance. LBJ has the exact skills to get the most out of that Cavs roster. With Jordan, the Cavs would have 2 Shooting Guards, a stretch 4, an undersized center, and a JR Smith. Jordan was a great on-ball defender, but you can't put Jordan on all of Curry, Klay, KD, and Draymond at the same time. Jordan would be great on offense, but the Cavs were already an offensive powerhouse. They needed help on the defensive end.

I'm not sure Jordan's (2nd 3-peat) Bulls would beat last year's Warriors in a best of 7 series, and those Bulls were a way better team than LBJ's Cavs.

Doesn't really matter. It wasn't an issue of James vs. Jordan. The other Cavs just didn't step up. They went something like -10 in the 2 minutes James rested. Unless Jordan can play 48 minutes against the Warriors, I don't see how anything changes. All they really needed was for guys to step up like in 2016, which didn't happen.
