      Base their legacy on their playing careers, not what they invest on.

    Jordan literally publicized the NBA to a whole different level. If Jordan was never in the NBA then we wouldn’t be talking about lebron like we are now. What Jordan did for the NBA and basketball alone surpasses lebron’s “legacy”. You can’t say at all that lebron will ever have a better legacy because if Jordan never existed, Lebron wouldn’t have the legacy he has now and it would be completely different to Lebron’s detriment.

      Every body know that what you say It’s true, but they still compare LeBron to Jordan, because the name of Jordan is still a source of more wealth and more audience. At the end of all that i would say stupid media.

      bro you do realize that if any superstar was in jordan’s place they would’ve been beloved by the public like he is? and no i’m not talking about his ownership of the charlottes hornets. i’m saying being the best player in the league. at the time he was. think about it, space jam 2 is gonna be in theatres this summer, but that happens to every great player( ex. kareem: game of death, wilt: conan the destroyer, michael: space jam. bro the world needed someone to boost their sales, jordan was a living advertisement, that’s why he appeared in many commercials in the 90’s. and amassed one third of his wealth at the time from his nba contract, the rest came from shoe deals, endorsements, etc

      @Nicholas Wani You’re wright, but despite all of what you say, LeBron is great but he’s not a Money maker at the level of MJ, i remember that prime Michael Jordan was famous at the level of Michael Jackson, that is why Michael Jackson had invited him to make a video together.

      @Leoleo Leo literally bro,i like mj more than i like lebron; but i will never say that one is better than the other. they played on different teams, had different expectations, with different rules. for all we know the 95-96 mj was probably better than he played but the team was so stacked he wasn’t expected to carry the bulls franchise like he did in the ’80’s

    Been 20+ years since MJ played. His shoes still#1. He still on this show everyday. First black Nascar owner. NBA owner while he played. That is all you need to know before you say MJs legacy is better. All these dudes know is the Last Dance. Should be ashamed to be bad at their jobs. Max horrible argument.

    Despite the ESPN desperate narrative, Jordan’s solo focus on the game vs James’ social justice is actually way, WAY in Jordan’s favor.

    LBJ will go down as the #1 greatest of all time, Period and I’m a Kobe fan since he came into the league. They just don’t want him to be the greatest. Same with floyd Mayweather. They don’t want to give him that crown fully. I just don’t understand. Why because of the ppl who was before them? Records are made to be broken.

    I think if you have to keep pulling MJ down in order to boost LBJ on and off the court accomplishments you’ve already said enough about LBJ legacy.
