    • do not know and do not have any dog in this race.. i do very much like the narrative of a former player competing in the finals against his former team... hats off to whoever wins and good luck to both .. may it prove to be very entertaining for everyone no matter how it ends

    • @Angel 23 i dont think so because jordans era is way harder..he was literally physically beaten up just not to get there but he still puts up numbers..now you have lots of defensive restrictions that paved way for the offensive player to score easily..Thats just one of the difference between jordan and lebron from getting out of the cage

      Steph BarbosaSteph Barbosaپیش ماه
    • Steph Barbosa no not on my mind because for me Jordan and Lebron are two way different players and for me Lebron win the hard way this era is more athletic better shooters better ball handled

      Angel 23Angel 23پیش ماه
    • @Angel 23 but you have to accept that whenever you brought up lebron, a name michael jordan will never get rid out of your mind

  • Jumping from teams to team up with young allstar/superstars? Whats so impressive about that? DWade, Chris Bosh, Kyrie Erving, Kevin Love and now Anthony Davis who may already be the 4rd best power forward of all time and like will finish in the top three???gimme a break... even if he wins hes 4-7 thats not what a goat finals record should be

    Robert BRobert Bپیش 27 روز
  • Short memory: - Lebron is the GOAT - After Last Dance, Lebron can NEVER be the GOAT - Lebron winning 1 ring against a bunch of injured players is the GOAT If warriors get called out for playing against injured players, I heard NOTHING about Lillard, Bam and Dragics injury. Lebron would have won anyway? So wouldn't the 73-9 team wouldn't they? Stop being bias. Give Warriors credit, or take Lebrons. Which is it?

  • The bubble is an advantage to young players.. But if he loses yes he will take a hit.. But if he wins he should get a massive boost because noone expected him to win.. And finally losing in the finals is better than losing in the first frigin round.. Also Kyrie and Love got injured and couldn't even play in the NBA finals i 2015 if that happened to MJ of course he loses this is soo dumb.. or MJ drags one of the lesser teams to the finals he loses it never happened because he isn't as good

  • If he wins 2 more after this year he is the goat. If he wins one more after miami he is tied. Winning 3 in a row with 3 different franchises while winning the stat war, while having 3 other championships - one against the greatest regular season team ever, better than any team jordan faced - he is the undisputed goat. If he just wins this one and another one somewhere down the line, he tied. This one alone just keeps him in the goat convo - i agree with that.

  • Really can't compare MJ and Bron. MJ Bulls were always the favorites in those 6 finals. Bron's teams were only favored 3 tims (out of 10, this year included). 2011 Heat vs. Mavs, 2012 vs OKC and this year. The other 7 times, those teams were the underdogs. 2007 vs Spurs, 2013 & 2014 vs Spurs, 2015-2018 vs GSW.

  • These Lebron James fanboys are something . So now they basically saying if Lebron James wins with the Lakers he's doing something no other player did. So forget that every team he played on had another superstar but his fanboys are quick to say Jordan had Scotty ,Rodman and Kukoc. but Lebron has Lebron and full of excuses. Nowv this is wishful thinking Wiley because the truth is he played longer to have those stats and accolades. Today rules also cater to offensive, where as the rules was a little more balance.when Jordan played and the game more physical. This great accomplished Lebron James has i thought Bill Russell appear in 12 NBA Finals and won 11 championship and he also won 8 straight and two more as a coach of the Celtics..The facts have become so distorted because today society idolize entertainers figures especially in sports and music. History is not going to forget Lebron James also played with top 20 players when he won his championships just like he played against top 20 players when he loss championships Sam Acho so what is the point you're trying to make. Michael Jordan was constantly criticize when he wasn't winning championships , no one said he was playing against great teams with great players like Boston and Detriot had when they was winning championships and even when he won the narrative was he beat a old teams not to mention that these players played in the same era and wasn't that far apart in actual age. Lebron James is the Peyton Manning of the NBA sure he's going to have the stats and a couple of rings and even hold most record and he should ,he have at least 20 years playing, but he's also going to have those failures when it matter most. The truth is no one can take away his accomplishments but he did fail when it counted most and if we can condemn others stars for going and losing and not having a championship at all ,it matter to win them not 3 out of 9 or 4 out of 10 ,but a winning record when it matter thats greatness overcoming when it matters most regardless of the situation and Michael GOAT 🐐 Jordan has accomplished that when it matter most 6 Championships Wins - 0 Championship Losses facts.

  • 'Shout out to the king for ten NBA finals'........uhh my guy, getting there is one thing, winning is another. Why are folk celebrating losing? James has only won 3 out of the last 9. Come back and get excited when he wins more than he loses.

  • this is ridiculous... by that logic if Kawhi wins one with the clippers then we should put him over kareem or shaq becuase they didnt do it with a third team? Im not about to give points for moving from one superteam to another nor am I going to take away from greatness if you did it on only one team... Duncan is not diminished for doing it all in SA, Kobe likewise in LA it rather increases your greatness and it is what you are imploring people like Giannis or Dame to do as well. If Lebron loses to the heat now where the best player is Jimmy Butler with a bunch of rookies while he has a top 3-5 player in the NBA alongside him he will drop down on the list for a lot of people... if he wins, congrats you get to retain your #2 all time status... acho really talking bad about spoelstra like he didnt just make the finals without lebron or wade or bosh and also about Ty Lue who he has been championing to be HC of the clippers.. and rick is trying to tell me now theres an asterisk because of the bubble?? does that also apply then if lebron wins?? will he get an asterisk next to his "3 finals mvps with 3 teams*"?

  • There’s an excusable reason to losing in the finals. All I been hearing about Lebrons competition in the playoff is if they aren’t good they wouldn’t be in the playoffs. But make excuses in the finals. At least MJ and Kobe won most of their rings in the first 10 years!! Lebron only had gotten his rings in the second decade of his career... MIA had more than 3 y’all of famers!! Cavs had 3 future hall of famers, Lakers got 4 future hall of famers. LBJ, AD, Dwight, Rondo! He always had allstar or hall of fame help since he went to MIA! Besides last year but look at what he did, got rid of the fresh young talent to get the best players he could.

Lets be real If LBJ alone transferred with the original loosing roster and Won a championship then it would even be better. MJ doesn't need to transfer to other team because he knows he can win championship with the BULLS.

  • STOP IT! “LEBRON JAMES” is the greatest player to ever play the game! Michael Jordan was in a perfect situation to look like the greatest player, but he was not! MICHAEL JORDAN rode on the GREATNESS of THE CHICAGO BULLS TEAM! MICHAEL JORDAN rode on the GREATNESS of THE GREATEST COACH ever, Phil Jackson! MICHAEL JORDAN rode on the shrewd GREATNESS of JERRY KRAUSE, the TEAMS GENERAL MANAGER! MICHAEL JORDAN rode on the GENIUS MARKETING of NIKE INC, and FLEW in the AIR JORDAN SHOE BRAND to a global iconic SUPERSTAR. The FALSE GREATNESS of MICHAEL JEFFERY JORDAN is a deceitfully crafted figment of our collective imaginations, by PROFIT driven forces (NBA inc, and NIKE inc) who went to extraordinary lengths to MAXIMIZE PROFIT, and extract every penny out of a very valuable commodity known as “MICHAEL JORDAN”. So what is “MICHAEL JORDAN”? Michael Jordan is the GREATEST of the GREAT scorers to ever play the game of basketball, and that’s all he is. Like his teammates, MICHEAL JORDAN was a part of a great situation in which he excelled, but outside of that great situation Michael Jordan didn’t prove anything except he was merely the greatest scorer among great scorers. “HAIL TO THE KING👑! LEBRON IS THE GOAT! LONG LIVE KING JAMES!”

    • 617 Bred - please send your brain through the rinse cycle, and rinse out all of your MJ indoctrination! You mis-represent the stats because you don’t know how to read stats, or properly interpret stats. Advanced stats are broken down into all sorts of categories, like minutes played; shots taken; games played; years played, etc,... so when properly manipulating the stats without injecting personal biases, Michael Jordan stature as the goat disappears, because his advanced stats are no better than any other great player, and they certainly don’t rise to goat status.

      Adolph DooleyAdolph Dooleyپیش ماه
    • 617 Bred - you brain-washed CLOWN! “The Last Dance” was not a documentary, it was a docudrama! MJ has always been surrounded by carefully crafted drama to make him appear GREAT! But he is an over-hyped, over advertised shoe salesman. A pair of AIR JORDAN’S anyone?

      Adolph DooleyAdolph Dooleyپیش ماه
    • LeBron has manufacture individuals on his clutch sports payroll to boost his stock in all time greats hierarchy. Please tell me when Jordan placed ppl in the media to push his narrative, when he in fact hated the media and still does. Question, what's Phil's resume before Chicago? Mike was in the ECFs before Phil arrived. He's great because of Mike, not the other way around. And as for Mike being "just a great scorer" he's the 2nd best sg in blocks, Wade passed him in more seasons, top 5 sg in assists all time, 2nd all time in rebs, Kobe passed him in more seasons, we all know where he ranks in steals, fg%. Please do more research instead of posting some biased opinion, with very little facts

      Big MoBig Moپیش ماه
    • @Big Mo what it means is the NBA is full of professional athletes no matter how their stats are it’s players accomplished what Lebron and Kawhi trying to do if you were in the league you would want to be recognized all star or bench player it’s a team game but certain players have been on the right teams Robert Horry has 7 regardless and non one can take that away from him

      Joel BrownJoel Brownپیش ماه
    • Joel Brown what do you mean it doesn’t matter, there are role players and then there are stars/leaders. I’m sure there are players on professional teams that have 2-3 rings and only touched the floor/field during garbage time the ENTIRE time they were on the teams, them having rings is not the same as aLebron James, KD, Tom Brady having rings

    • @Lambert Aie Agreed. As I've said in other comments, if you tell me MJ is the GOAT, that is an extremely reasonable statement and most people would I agree with you. I happen to have a different opinion, based on various other observations, but that is certainly valid. I just hate when people think the only argument is rings.

      Calvin ChambersCalvin Chambersپیش 26 روز
    • Calvin Chambers I get what you’re saying. Rings definitely aren’t the only thing that matter, but ones who say that act as if Michael Jordan doesn’t have impressive stats as well. Averaged the most amount of points ever 30.1 more than even Wilt Chamberlin who was a walking mismatch ( not as a shot jacket either 49% career percentage average including wizard years) not just 6 rings but 6 finals MVPs ( most amount ever). People say he had no competition On his champion ship runs he beat 13 teams that won 50+ games, and 7 teams that won 60+ games. 5 regular MVPs, 9 time defensive first team, 3 time steals leader, 14 out of 15 years played all star. Definitely not saying LeBron not great, he’s a top-five player of all time. But I just think comparing him to Jordan he’s silly, they’re clearly not on the same level.

      Lambert AieLambert Aieپیش 27 روز
    • @Lambert Aie But would it be better than 6-6? Only in the minds of people who A. Don't quite get it and B. Think that rings is all that matters when it comes to deciding who is the GOAT. Those are people who I don't want to waste my time arguing with because they don't recognize the 11 rings by Russell, the 8 rings by Havlicek, or the 7 rings by Horry.

  • Are you that type of guy with the 6-6 MJ fanboy? Why hasn't been able to go to 10 finals appearance so it'll be 10-10? or the Blind Lebron Fanboy? The argument should be the CORE star players with more rings + stats, I am a fan of Lebron, but I won't put him above MJ if he only got 3 rings Lebron Finals Opponents: MAVs (Nowitzki, Kidd, Terry, Marion) OKC (KD, Harden, Westbrook) SAS (Duncan, Ginobli, Parker, Leonard) GSW (Curry, Thompson, Green, Durant) MJ Finals Opponents: DET (Thomas, Dumars, Rodman) ORL (Shaq, Hardaway) NYK (Ewing, Stark) IND (Miller, Smits) LAL (Worthy, M.Jhonson) UTA (Malone, Stockton) POR (Drexler, Porter) SEA (Payton, Kemp) PHX (Barkley, K.Johnson) Lebron fought against better opponents compared to MJ with a very loose officiating, Lebron would break bones against those old teams with his body if the officiating wasn't so soft today.

  • He did take a "hit" because you guys hold his finals record against him when y'all Kno his 1st appearance was against the spurs and pop.. he had no chance to win so u can't use that as a metric because that means off rip LeBron didn't even have a chance to be the "greatest" and it's a way to diminish what he actually did.. which was something even Jordan couldn't do. This is why media and the narrative that gets out is important.. they dragged* LeBron's name for decades now and it's all unjustified bs instead of telling the truth and giving him his due while he's still playing.. now when its all said n done they gonna say "see.. he was no Michael Jordan 🤡" just so it can fit their own bs narratives ?

  • If LeBron truly was the GOAT, we would have known it a long time ago. There is nothing LeBron can do to achieve GOAT status simply because it's not WHO he is. The GOAT is about domination, killer mentality, ability to win, accomplishments etc. He can win another 10 titles and it won't increase his status to GOAT level. Increasing his points, assists, etc isn't going to do anything. LeBron is trying to artificially increase his status by breaking longevity records, but that's not how this works. That being said, I like LeBron he's great but people are so blind.

  • People like to say lbj went against super teams, well lbj has been on super teams so no excuses. Jordan better stayed on 1 team & beat more 50 & 60 win teams in the playoffs. Also beat hall of famers. Shaq got swept by Jordan, he triple dubbed magic in 91, & beat Stockton, Malone, Gary Payton etc. wat top 5 player of all time lbj beat ? I’ll wait.... 73 win team bs they were hurt & had no center & iggy had back spasm

  • I was js if LeBron loses this will justify (what I seem to be irrelevant in debating between better players) this "finals record" argument held against him. He has to come thru there's no historic juggernaut in his path this time and his own team came out the west in the regular season and now the post season.

  • Best show period right now!!!!!

  • People acting like LeBron is doing this by himself. LeBron has not been the linchpin of the Lakers throughout the Playoffs. Will Danny Green status elevate if he wins another title for the third different team? I guess not. With the four title, LeBron will become number 2 ever and seal his position over other greats. 4 of 10 is not great. Even if he goes for 5 of 11. To be the GOAT he should at least go 7 of 13.

But you know who didnt lose 6 finals.........Jordan Kobe Magic Kareem Bird Hakeem Russell Wilt Duncan and Shaq.

  • Jordan faced Drexler in Portland Malone and Stockton in Utah in the finals he faced Payton and Kemp in the finals he face Barkley in the finals he faced Worthy and Magic in the finals that’s 8 hall of famers in the finals he has faced While Lebron faced Parker Ginobili Duncan and Pop 3 hall of famers and a hall of fame coach He faced spurs again with Leonard Parker Duncan and Ginobili and Pop again with 4 hall of famers and a hall of fame coach He faced GSW with Curry Dray and Klay 3 hall of famers and than Durant one year that’s 4 hall of famers He faced Nowitzki in Dallas and a hall of famer coach He faced OKC with Russ Harden and Durant in 2013 3 hall of famers That’s 18 hall of famers in the finals Lebron has competed against and 3 hall of fame coaches while Mj has only faced 8 and in every series he was a clear favourite in most of them while Lebron was only a favourite 2 times

    • So KD and Russ and Harden were playing at HOF level, they just got into the league!! They barely had 10 years in the league when they played and they already was a HOF’er lmao you sound dumb! Your math is off too. He faced the spurs team twice, same players... in MIA he had 4 HOF in LBJ , D Wade, Bosh and Ray Allen. So they match up with the Spurs, have more Allstars than the Thunders and the Mavs so what’s your point!? Against the Warriors it wasn’t until they had KD that you can say they were more talented but they had Draymond as their big man before that! You make no point with this lmao only time he was out talented was when he got swept the first time

    • Oh, since LeBron has faced NBA Finals opponents with HC amassing 12 titles before their matchup, how many of Jordan’s Finals opponent Head Coach’s have Title experience? Take a guess? 1. Paul Westphal, 70’s Suns as a player. Mike Dunleavy Sr and he aging Lakers, Rick Attleman and the “Just happy to be here” Trailblazers”, No defense playing Suns and Paul Westphal in ‘93. The “just happy to be here” Scared Sonics in ‘96 Finals with George Karl and Jerry Sloane and his Big 3 with an average age of 34; which is old today...ancient then. Jordan faced good individual players in Barkley, Drexler, Malone, Stockton, Payton, Kemp, Magic and Worthy. But none of THOSE teams will go down as an all time great opponent. LeBron faced 2 All-time franchises, one that revolutionized how we play the game of basketball.
