Yeah, let's compare the first 8 seasons of their career when Lebron was literally a teenage boy for his first couple years and Jordan came into the league as damn near a fully grown man with several years of college level competition as training for the league.

Lebron had to adjust playing against 16 year old kids to immediately playing against 30 year old men

That's the thing you idiots never factor in when discussing the length of their careers.

thats not an excuse, Bron could've went to college if he wanted to but chose the NBA to be a big time player.

Another Bron stan doing the age/age comparison to avoid the season-by-season comparison:

Jordan after his first 8 seasons: 6 Scoring Titles, 3 MVP's, 2 Championships, 2 Finals MVP's, 1 DPOY, 7 All-NBA, 5 All-Defense, 8 All-Star Appearances

LeBron after his first 8 seasons: 1 Scoring Title, 2 MVP's, 0 Championships, 0 Finals MVP's, 0 DPOY, 7 All-NBA, 3 All-Defense, 7 All-Star Appearances

The age thing is just fine IMO, shows how much they've gained and earned over an amount of time. Can't hold it against Bron for being more NBA ready outta HS as compared to Jordan. ANd since We're wanting to add in certain cutoffs due to no fault of Bron, why don't we just go by the ages when Jordan got into the league w/Bron, which according to this graphic was 22.

So from ages 22-28, Bron had 4 Finals appearances, 2 Rings and FMVPs, 7 All-Star appearances and 4 MVPs while Jordan 2 MVPs, 1 Finals Appearance, 6 All-Star appearances, and 1 Ring and FMVP.

Sounds like the Kobe stan excuse that LeBron was a starter his first year and Kobe was coming off the bench when Kobe could have been the franchise player of Charlotte if he didn't decide to ride Shaq's coattails like a little pus*y f*ggot

yea but compare how long it took them to get to the finals lmfao...

lebron led his team to the finals in 4 years dawg, how many players have done that?
I was about to say this, If anything this shows that the comparison isnt that far off

People use the fact that Jordan spent a few years in college as a slight to Lebron but if anything it makes him look better, he was performing at a high caliber as a TEEN\young 20 something year old... Jordan came in a little more refined a little more grounded and worked himself up to a legend. Lebron walked into the league as a kid and had to gain maturity and skill playing against dudes with way more experience. Even led his team to the finals at 22.

As far as the whole teaming up with all stars thing, Jordan played with a few top 10 draft picks like Horace Grant and Scottie Pippen. He got lucky because his organization made smart moves. Im not gonna speak on what could've happened if they didnt get those 2 but youre nuts if u think Jordan woulda been content with the 1st round being his ceiling. (he finally made it to the 2nd round when Pippen and Grant came in the picture)

TLDR Version
Jordan is a legend maybe even the GOAT but if Lebron keeps it up he isnt that far off so stop tryin to discredit the man all we really got on him is his hairline.

Lets be honest Jordan played with some good as teammates. They may have not all got together like Bron and wade did. But Jordan was not winning by himself. He had pippen which is a much better player then made and Rodman which is a much better player then Bosh imo of course. But also lets not forget if and this is a if, Jordan didn't retire when his dad got murdered he may have won 8 in a row.. He was still in his prime when he retired he came back a little rusty. The teaming up with other superstars doesn't bother me much. He was how he did it. That's what pisses people off. Every superstar needs someone to help them out.. Jordan was scoring a sh*t ton of points but had no one to play D. He got the D and help with the O from Pippen then it was a wrap.. Pippen and Jordan was the best two player tandum in any sport.. SO to say Bron is a bi*ch for teaming up with Wade is kinda sh*tty.

your comparing a rookie who wanted to play in a good market vs an MVP who made an ESPN special about how he's going to leave his team to go team up with all star caliber guys in Miami..... sick logic.

although I think Bron did the right thing, nobody wants to go to fu*king Cleveland lol.. but the espn special was real tasteless... but hey, he got 2 rings now.

you mean the espn special that raised 2 million dollars for the boys and girls club?

you're comparing a player who raises money for charity to a player who has to go to court because he's a rapist?.... sick logic.

Imagine if, at the draft, LeBron decided "I don't wanna play for CLE at all, I'd rather be in CHI or BOS." He wuld have IMMEDIATELY gotten hate for it. But it's ok for Kobe?

Age means sh*t, the amount of seasons you've been in the league is the fairest comparison. People weren't even coming out of HS straight to the pros back then
I agree. Put a 12-year old into the league. If he Leads His Team to a title at age 20, he's still a failure since it took him 8 years compared to Jordan's 6. GREAT logic. I fully support this nonsense. Age means nothing.

If LeBron is good enough to be drafted #1, straight out of HS and average 20, 6 and 6, I think it's fair to compare their time in the league instead of age. Because it's not like he was Kobe and had to ride the bench his first 2 years in the league, LeBron came in the league as an allstar calibre player.

You're an idiot if you think Lebron literally being a teenage boy and Jordan being a 22 year old man is a fair comparison. Plain and simple. As is anybody else who uses that horrible logic.
