Michael Jordan is the big winner of the debate organized until a few days ago about the best player of all time in the NBA with LeBron James as a point of comparison.
For this reason, the story that changed basketball in the media between the 80s and 90s, was shot, due to many poisons, apparently towards “King James”, after this slide could not avoid his team in the West Conference Final at the hands of the Denver Nuggets.

“There’s no way I’d call Larry Bird or Magic Johnson to join my team. Things are different, I’m not saying it’s wrong, but the kids have an advantage today,” Michael Jordan said. According to the special program Pasión Basket.
It should be noted that despite having won four championship rings, including the MVP in each of those NBA Finals, LeBron James has pursued the reputation of joining other elite players to try to win titles, such as those made with Dwyane. Wade and Chris Bosh in the Miami Heat, obtaining two rings (2011-2012 and 2012-2013), as with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love in the Cleveland Cavaliers (2015-2016 champions) or in their own Lakers of 2019-2020, helped. He received the highest honors from Anthony Davis.

Unlike LeBron James, Michael Jordan has won six NBA championships in as many Finals games, always leading the Chicago Bulls who, with the exception of Scottie Pippen, don’t seem to have front-line elements.
