For Boomers and Generation X, LeBron is the leading scorer in history. And he’s better than Michael Jordan. In marketing strategy, in maintaining health, in maximizing longevity, in influencing your franchisees. Curiously, this kept him from being great teammates in many of his 20 best seasons. You can’t be the best decision maker inside and out. It is and will be better in the context of the community without losing sight of the economy. He’s better at finding ways to tell the truth, his truth. On the court, he is better at defending without the ball than bigger players, he has a greater ability to read offensive plays on both sides of the axis (this is given by the current learning curve as well as other things). A prodigy of well-utilised energy and right decisions to carve out a career within reach of God Kareem, Bill Russell, Magic or Oscar Robertson.
And in many of these aspects in which the boy from Akron is superior to his aerial highness, it is because one paved the way for the other, a clarity on which the trajectory of another legendary athlete has been built in a similar environment, Global Battle for Impact. But…
For centenarians, zeds and millennials: Michael Jordan is the best scorer in history, And he is a better player than LeBron in plasticity, in various ways to avoid defenders, consistent defensive moral ability, and speed on outside shots. Both were getting the range without the shooter. In the Finals, Jordan is the best in history in great moments of great games. He didn’t fail that time, and that’s what makes him unforgettable and more decisive than LeBron James in the finals rings. Michael Jordan was better/worse than LeBron at creating tension with his co-workers, which caused him to bring out the best in himself and others to neurasthenic levels. He put his teammates on track to be remembered more than LeBron will. He didn’t have as much influence over his GMs, which was beneficial to him in the long run as whenever he played for the Bulls every year the team didn’t seem like it, but together they managed to make it more complete for the finals . Provided the leader with what he needed for the goal and the next victory. But it also cut short his career, among other factors.
michael jordan is better than lebron in charisma, Of which the Lakers player, who is also a global icon, is no less. But Jordan can also fight and win that battle by starting with the 80s and some TV covering the NBA, the 90s and its cathodic advance but still out of step with the pace of information and contemporary urgency. Like Muhammad Ali, having managed to reach all corners of Africa or Asia and even Latin America, and his love for football can be signed by not only LeBron, but also the best athletes in history . Not that they know him, but he inspires and is considered a role model where the practice of his own game is not far off.
Jordan’s most iconic pitch was seen on TV and as the people at Delta Center watched it with their hands over their heads and were horrified, they were fans, mostly from the Utah Jazz. To win the NBA Championship against a great team with two Dream Teamers like Stockton and Malone, after a controversial contact that could have been shown as an assault foul (a lie, no one would have noticed that ). He had it all. In that quintet, the Bulls had such unforgettable characters as Steve Kerr (best coach of this era), Tony Kukoc (best European player at the time), Pippen and Dennis Rodman. Incredible.
LeBron in his most memorable shot is a regular league suspension, incomparable to Jordan’s shot, but it will also go down in history as a frozen moment. Without the glamor of the type of match and the end result, but with the firm belief that it is a difficult task to accomplish physically and mentally able to withstand all the pressure he is already under as a teenager. So much so that all who saw him born for high-level basketball like themselves agreed to nickname him “The Chosen One” and “The King”. Fulfilling so many expectations and being the top scorer in history deserves unanimous recognition from a man who has gone where no one has gone before. Biggest respect for LeBron James.
One mobile was visible from the screen, the other was not (because there were no mobiles). We will both watch them on repeat from the screen forever. Each one has amazed us with the mastery of his sporting life time. LeBron still has some way to go and my bet is that the priority now is for his efforts to go for a title tie. It won’t be easy but it will be interesting to follow. as always.
Two historical moments. Two giants of world sport. Two different ways to look at basketball.
