Why are MJ fans okay with the thought of Lebron being "as good" as him but not Kobe?

The threadstarter is known to be biased against LeBron, so I honestly shouldn't even take this thread seriously, but I just can't ignore it. To be honest with you, I don't NEARLY hear as many people compare him to Jordan as they do Kobe. Kobe fashioned his whole game(and damn near his look and maneurisms) after Jordan, they have similiar builds, and they both play the same position(Shooting Guard), therefore he has drawn more comparisons to MJ than LeBron and rightfully so. LeBron's game has drawn more comparisons to an array of different players such as Oscar Robertson and even Magic Johnson, because of his size, court vision, and passing ability. This is yet another BXSC thread by some guy with an obvious bias against LeBron trying to draw the ire of Kobe stans so they can come in and blindy defend their hero.

no matter what kobe or lebron does MJ will be the GOAT
So you're just going to openly claim ignorance?
What if Lebron won MVP, NBA Title, finals MVP, 1st team all NBA, 1st team all defense for the next 8 years? Or Kobe for the next 3-4?

It's always about the First GOAT IMO. What i mean about that for instance, when u think of the homerun king, who comes to mind first Babe Ruth or Hank Aaron?? Even tho Aaron had more, are you gonna take him over Ruth Even tho Jordan never scored 81 etc....

Also MJ brought somethin new to the game with the type of style he played. Kobe's is too similar to his which could unfairly count against himself. Bron has brought something different to the game because of his size, but how has Kobe changed the game with the style of his play? Even if Kobe put up the same amount of chips/mvps/whatever, his style is too similar to the man that started it. No knock on Kobe's greatness, but we've seen it before by a man with more credentials etc. Sometimes emulating another player too much can take away from your own originality and the stamp you leave when you retire from the league.

Fair enough .. But a part of the reason why people think MJ will never be surpassed is because people grew up watching him.. He's pretty much immortalized in people's minds as the greatest there will ever be, no matter the circumstance ..

True, i do agree it is somewhat of a combination. However i only think time will tell. MJ was pretty recent even tho it was over a Decade Ago. In another 15-20 years we should have a better picture of where MJ truly stands. Still, 3 peat/retire/3-peat while changing how the game is played is most likely a once in a lifetime thing to witness.

Don't mind him, he was born in '87 which means anything that happened before '01 he has to witness on youtube.

One reason may be MJ fans are comfortable with the Lebron comparison. Is because Kobe did what Jay-Z did to Biggie. "If I aint better than BIG i'm the closest one" First you learn from the GOAT, then you try to throw the GOAT under the bus, and after you stole everything from the GOAT, then you claim your the GOAT.


I know its hard for you Kobe condoms to understand but Kobe can be stopped, while LEBRON cant be stopped, and thats one thing MJ and Lebron truly have in common.

how is

missing the playoffs in your prime
choking away a 3-1 series lead
quitting on your team in a game 7
choking away a 25 point lead in the finals
going out like a b**** by 40 in the finals
getting obliterated in 2 finals


getting close?
