jordan james 300x168 Ten Reasons Jordan Is Better Than Lebron

The raging debate between Lebron and Jordan has been weighed in on more times this weekend than the contestants of Biggest Loser. Never mind that Kobe Bryant still holds the deed to the NBA???s best but we don???t know where Lebron will be in five years. He could be on the verge of a five-peat or still be left standing at the NBA alter ringless. Or worse. Athletes with Lebron???s size often end up with balky knee braces and bad feet. However, unlike a certain middle aged Jamaican psychic???s hotline, I don???t have the ability to see where Lebron???s career will talk him. However, Jordan was an icon on and off the court. Here are the top 10 reasons Jordan???s shadow still eclipses Lebron???s potential.

Good to see ya, DJ. Thanks for checking in on FN. Hope all is well.

Love the Top 10 lists. Even on the points I disagree with you on, you've slyly won me over with random analogies. Looks like you've given The Top 10s their own section on your site so I take it you're planning on doing more. Looking forward to them. I like the new overall cleaner look of your site.

Enjoy the Finals.

Wouldnt call bosh the biggest head case in pro sprots. he's stepped it up big time in these playoffs. he took more time to adjust than wade or lebron because he is a post who doesnt have the ball in his hands all the time and going from 24 ppg and #1 option to third wheel is a huge adjustment.

There may be 6 reasons Lebron is not better than MJ but not 10 . This guy can score , rebound , assist , block shots , defend , and shoot the 3 with the best of them . He is bigger and stronger than MJ and because of his size the refs don't give him the calls MJ got as a player . If he wins 7 or more titles like he has predicted move over MJ there will be a King and his name is Lebron James .
