Lebron James May Or May Not Be A Better Basketball Player Than Michael Jordan, But He’s A Better Man

YouTube screenshot via NBA

 

It’s apropos that Lebron James, the greatest basketball player of the 21st century, has made (and will continue to make) the debate about whether he or Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player ever a valid and relevant one with his most underrated characteristics: his stamina and consistency. There has not been an NBA season since 2003 where Lebron wasn’t a prominent figure; and we’d have to stretch back seven years (!!!) to find one where he wasn’t still playing in June. I almost — almost — feel a tinge of sadness for those committed to keeping the JORDAN IS THE BEST EVER AND LEBRON IS A WHINY BITCH BABY torch lit, because this debate will continue to get louder as Lebron collects more accolades, and their indefatigable dismissal of Lebron’s status and their steadfast standom for a guy who retired two decades ago will seem progressively more illogical and hysterical.

The relentlessness of Lebron’s career mirrors the cumulative effect he has on opponents over 48-minute-long games and seven game playoff series. He’s such a tireless and singular and violent force of nature that he eventually just wears people out; squeezing them into juice and grinding them down into powder. If Jordan was a bolt of lightning, with a flash and a sparkle and an incandescence that captivated and blinded people with its brilliance, Lebron is a tsunami; an extinction level event with Karl Malone’s body, Magic Johnson’s game, Julius Erving’s hops, and Bobby Fischer’s brain.

(As far as my feelings about the Jordan vs Lebron debate, I can go on for 3000 more words, but I’ll simplify them. Michael Jordan was a perfect basketball player. His near perfect skillset allowed him to be so transcendentally virtuoso that his singularity lifted the teams he was on, like a sun providing light for a entire galaxy. Lebron, however, possesses a game and a body and a brain that allows him to play perfect basketball. While his movements aren’t as fluid and his game isn’t as sexy as Jordan’s was, there’s nothing physically he can’t do and nothing mentally he can’t process; a dynamic that allows him to make the best basketball play in nearly every situation. He’s not a star or a sun or a planet. He’s gravity. So while Jordan, in a vacuum, might have been a more skilled basketball player, Lebron’s skills enable him to be more effective. And I choose more effective.)

Anyway, while the debate about their games and their talents and their respective grades of greatness remains relevant, there’s no argument that the 32-year-old Lebron far surpasses both the 32-year-old Jordan and today’s 54-year-old Jordan in integrity and bravery. And not the contrived, SkipBaylian artificial measure of character that bases and assesses a man’s testicular fortitude on his LinkedIn profile and whether he possesses an arbitrary “clutch gene,” but real actual character.

Can you imagine Michael “My Arms Are Too Short To Box With Republican Potential Sneaker Buyers” Jordan, on the night before the NBA Finals, holding a press conference to say this?

“Just shows that racism will always be a part of the world, part of America. Hate in America, especially for African-Americans, is living every day. It is hidden most days. It is alive every single day. I think back to Emmett Till’s mom and the reason she had an open casket, she wanted to show the world what her son went through in terms of a hate crime in America. No matter how much money you have, how famous you are, how much people admire you, being black in America is tough.”

This, of course, was Lebron’s response to “nigger” being spray-painted on the fence outside of his Los Angeles home. Instead of declining to comment or dismissing it as a distraction — which he would have been perfectly justified to do considering both the timing and the explosive gravity of the incident — he used his considerable platform and influence to remind America (and the world) about ourselves and the pervasive sickness that permeates our bones and vessels. Perhaps Lebron is the most famous athlete in the world; a soon-to-be billionaire with unfathomable access and opportunity and privilege and power. But to many Americans — too many Americans — he’s still just a nigger. Just like Emmett Till.

This is far from Lebron’s first time speaking out about race (or education or injustice). But I can’t recall a time where his words were as clear and sharp and resonate and relevant. And that he’d make this statement while much of the sports world rages in a debate about him and Michael Jordan is timely and telling. Even Lebron himself has admitted to possessing this thought; expressing that his motivation now is “the ghost” he’s chasing — a ghost that “played in Chicago.” But as we wonder whether he’s done enough to merit the comparison, perhaps we’re asking the wrong questions. Maybe Lebron doesn’t need to be like Mike. Maybe Mike should have been and needs to be like Lebron.

    LeBron is my favorite athlete ever, a modern-day Kareem but with more philanthropy and joy about him.

    Cavs in 6, btw. Get these lucky lightskins tf out of my face forever

    • “Get these lucky lightskins tf out of my face forever”

      Can’t stop laughing at this.

  • Epsilonicus

    First, I think that 32 year old Lebron is a better player than 32 year old Jordan.

    Secondly, this incidents is a reminder that wealth and fame does not erase Blackness. A lot of Black folks, and an even larger amount of white folk really try to play that game. This racist system does not care about your money. I had to explain that to a Honduran exchange student in college. He was pissed that a white student from a one stop light town whose parents are broke as all get out said some racist ish to him, a Honduran kid who grew up having staff in the home. I had to explain to him that racism in USA has the poorest white folks thinking they can tell the wealthiest of POC that hey ain’t ish. And the poorest of white folks truly, madly, deeply believe that.

    • Val

      This is why I always balk when people say it’s not racism, it’s classism. Nope, it’s racism.

      • kingpinenut

        It is always racism

        • Sigma_Since 93

          but racism always has a political and economic element to it.

          • kingpinenut

            Yes it does…but those aspects are secondary imo.

          • Gibbous

            Racism is meant to ensure that POC do not have a political or economic voice.

        I feel like a lot of Black folks want to believe it is just classism, especially younger ones, but they’re wrong.

        Racism is the *reason* why income inequality will never get fixed.

        And even if it magically did get fixed, people would still be racist.

      Deadspin article showing How Mavrick and Rich paid Whitlock to create the LeBron Project at the The Undfeated before he was fired to elevate LeBron over MJ based upon his perceived activism and support of the Community and is the new Ali and thus the G.O.A.T. it is obvious that they are still paying bloggers and writers to further their LeBron Project

      http://deadspin.com/how-jason-whitlock-is-poisoning-espns-black-grantland-1698683962

    • Wise Old Owl

      Read for yourself the interview MJ gave in 1992 to Playboy magazine discussing, racism, his former hatred of white folks, the Harvey Gantt Senate Campaign, Jesse Helms, the book the Jordan Rules, his charities and other issues such as not going to the White House to meet President Bush after winning the 91 championship over Magic and the Lakers…after reading the interview, you all can no longer claim that he never publicly discussed racism and that he said Republicans buy shoes, because he actually donated money to Harvey Gantt campaign…

  • I always dead the Jordan vs. LeBron debate at my barbershop by saying Serena is a better athlete than the both of them. I always find the debate exhausting and too rooted in old man’s nostalgia versus young man’s arrogance to be productive and objective.

    • mr. steal your costco samples

      lmao olds would be like “mike would beat serena in straight sets backhanding the ball with his dyck and then punch brad sellers for no reason.”

      • Word for word, this is almost exactly how the argument goes down n the shop.

      • TheUnsungStoryteller

        Are those fuccbois or…

      • Charlito Brown

        Joe Louis was 75 years old when they fought!

    • BlackMamba, Romperstiltskin

      I love this.

    • HouseSublime

      That doesn’t really make sense to me seeing as how the argument isn’t about best athletes it’s about best basketball player.

      • I know. It’s just my way of getting them to shut up about an argument I find boring.

    • TheUnsungStoryteller

      Ahhhh…you my road dawg for that one. No one can argue about Serena.

    • NonyaB?

      I’m cackling hard at the fact that even in the comments here, your barbershop scene as described is playing out, especially with nostalgia running amok.

    “Maybe Lebron doesn’t need to be like Mike. Maybe Mike should have been and needs to be like Lebron.”

    Welp.

    • HouseOfBonnets
    • Wise Old Owl

      Mike is fine being Mike…I recall certain writers worshiping Ali, a notorious womanizer, serial adulterer, dead beat dad and ignorant arrogant fool who mocked and cooned for the camera by calling Joe Fraizer an ugly gorilla for having an African Phenotype…these same writers/bloggers also worship Jim Brown a disgusting wife beater who threw women off balconies and abused multiple women and served prison time for beating his wife…these same writers will even tell you that Mike Tyson, a convicted rapist and wife beater has more character than no good uncle Tom MJ…they hate MJ, because they never broke or humbled him…that crying meme, does not negate his greatness…Moreover, MJ is still the most famous retired or current athlete in the World and his Q rating is far higher than LeBron. LeBron fans claim that he is better than MJ, because he cares for the community unlike MJ…however, MJ has given millions to the community, he just doesn’t call a press conference or issue press releases every time he gives back…and there is no comparison between Emmit Till’s brutal lynching and LeBron’ s 20 million dollar gates community being vandalized…other Maverick and Rich being savvy enough to use this as an opportunity for LeBron to “further” separate from MJ and pretend to be Statesman like Ali…it works as I predicted LeBron’s fans would use this as an example to Bash MJ the Man, because they can not bash or beat him as the G.O.A.T.!

      • Rastaman

        Alternate Facts!!
        Jim Brown went to prison for smashing up his own vehicle in his own garage. It was MJ who said Republicans buy sneakers too when he failed to support a black man running for the US Senate in NC against notorious racist Jesse Helms. No one had to break MJ, he was never really together. Lebron James is a better man than he is a basketball player just based on how well he has conducted himself as a father, husband and businessman, educated himself having entered the NBA as a precocious 18 year old. He has not only enriched himself he has enriched his boyhood friends as well. Michael Jordan may have been a great basketball player but that will be the limit of his influence in the world that and the use of his visage to sell sneakers. While those other athletes were imperfect husbands or fathers their contributions like Lebron James are not just limited to the field of play or some TV commercial. Like Ali and Jim Brown, Lebron James is changing people’s lives everyday. Whether he Lebron is better than Mike as a basketball player is something to be debated but he has already surpassed him as a human being.

        • Wise Old Owl

          You are a liar, and have no proof that MJ said Republicans buy sneakers too…that has been proven to be a lie. In fact, MJ, although a resident of Illinois and not North Carolina at the time of the election and could not even vote for Harvey Gantt, donated money to senatorial campaign, the same way he did for then State Senator, Barack Obama first campaign for U.S. Senator as well as his presidential campaigns. He even hosted a fundraiser in NYC in 2012, that raised more than $ 3 million dollars for Obama. Don’t make excuses for Jim Brown for beating women and throwing women off balconies…dont don’t make excuses for Ali for calling a Black Man, who gave him money to feed his family an Ugly Gorilla and uncle Tom, while cooning for the camera…don’t make excuses for your little heroes, because they fit your model of Black Activists…MJ has influenced the world in his own manner and employs more Black Folks than LeBron and his giving millions of dollars to the community.

  • HouseOfBonnets

    Simply here for the conversation but I will say that love or hate James his actions off the court and the way he utilizes his platform while not 100 percent required/in some cases unwanted (because y’all see what became of Cam) it’s appreciated. It’s just sad that many others dispersed in the upper echelon don’t realize or simply don’t want to accept the truth of his message as well….especially the excerpt you highlighted.

    • Val

      Thanks for the Cam shade. It’s always appreciated.

      • HouseOfBonnets

        That’s why I’m here…..just goes to show sometimes you look better when you don’t speak.

    • TheUnsungStoryteller

      Lebron is smart. He knows his audience. He knows not to abandon them with some whitewashed “All Lives Matter” nonsense so that he could appeal to everyone. He has values.

      • Wise Old Owl

        LeBron’s handlers, Maverick and Rich are savvy, because they know his audience belives that he is a true Modern Day Activist Athlete.. Although, he was silent about the lynching of Tamir Rice by racist cops in his beloved Cleveland…he will continue to be a safe activist and collect his billions from Nike, McDonald’s and Samsung…compaines that treat their employees like crap and exploit cheap labor in 3rd world countries.. but, hey, he loves the community….

    I’m happy to see that Lebron, and his team (who don’t get enough credit) have the courage to use their platform in ways MJ was fearful to do. It should not have taken Bron Bron’s actions to show MJ you can be opinionated and not loose investors / influence.

          LMAO

        • conlakappa

          And not “… here’s the blonde’s number, Mike,” said by even referees?

        • Wise Old Owl

          The G.O.A.T will be on his tombstone, since he didn’t say Republicans buy shoes too…funny that we forget that he actually donated money to Harvey Gantt and according to Barry, who you all love, supported and donated to his campaigns from Senator to President…heck he even publicly endorsed him and raised millions in a fundraiser in NYC…but it makes us feel good to attack one Black Man to uplift and elevate our personal heroes and at the same time claim to be Woke…let me know when MJ calls Patrick Ewing an Ugly Gorilla and uncle Tom…

    • Aintnuthinwrongwitcornbread

      Could MJ really have spoken out on issues in the early 90s though and not catch heat?

      • miss t-lee

        Others did.

      • TheUnsungStoryteller

        Seemed like the best time to talk IMHO. I feel like people were more vocal then.

      • Wise Old Owl

        First off, MJ never said Republicans buy shoes too….that urban myth has been proven to be a lie! Real journalist and writers know that it is a lie and no longer quote it. However, if one has an agenda, they will continue to spread myths and lies to support their agenda…funny how they never tell you that MJ donated money to Harvey Gantt’s campaign…they will not tell you that he gave millions to Spike Lee in order to finish filming X and they he rocked and made the X Cap famous…they will not tell you that MJ donated money to Obama when he was running for state senator and publicly endorsed him and raised millions…they won’t tell you that MJ donated 6 million to a majority Black Male high school. They will not tell you that MJ donated 5 million to the Museum of African American History. They will not tell you that the vast majority of MJ employees are Black. This will not fit their agenda to claim that Jordan doesn’t care about Black Folks…

        • Question

          This. I wish we would dead the comparisons. Tiger. Michael Jordan.

          What purpose do they serve?

          • Wise Old Owl

            Maverick and Rich have a few writers/bloggers on the payroll to elevate LeBron over MJ based upon his perceived activism and support of the Community…the Modern Ali…this agenda was exposed in The Undfeated report, because this was one of the platforms of The Undfeated…that’s why we get get the constant stories and same headlines…

          • Wise Old Owl

            Deadspin exposed the Jason Whitlock “LeBron Project” at the The Undfeated before he was fired. Whitlock was very “close” to LeBron’s handlers Maverick Carter and Rich Paul. The goal of the LeBron Project was to elevate LeBron over MJ based upon his perceived activism and support of the Community…it is clear that the plot continues with new writers, bloggers and media platforms…please see for yourself: http://deadspin.com/how-jason-whitlock-is-poisoning-espns-black-grantland-1698683962

    • Question

      The only thing I’ll say is I think there’s some truth to the notion that athletes are well paid to hush them up – it’s easy for society to discount hardship when you’re taking in $30+M annually which is what happens any time a black athlete speaks out against racism.

      “Hush negro, you are rich”.

      And Lebron I just stepped all over that. I’m proud of him.

          It hurts their feelings to think that maybe, they got where they are not only by hard work, but also because of racism. Admitting that racism exists means white people have to admit that they’re on top in part because other people were held down. And that scares them. Better to deny it.

          • Val

            I hear you but from what I’ve seen and heard with regard to pro athletes and family, geography doesn’t seem to stop family and friends from making demands.

          • Brother Mouzone

            Magic Johnson is not worried ONE BIT about Lavar. Once that boy is in the NBA, he is a professional. Magic will tell Lavar to fall back, and he will fall back…trust. Earvin runs L.A., and Lavar respects O.G’s like that.

            • Sigma_Since 93

              I wasn’t fully coming at it from a Lavar aspect. I hate it when kids get drafted by the hometown team. You have friends, family, and multiple hanger’s on always coming at them. I just want Lonzo to leave, hone his game away from the distractions, and live his best life.

              • Brother Mouzone

                I’m kind of torn on that. There’s a part of me that wants him to go to the east coast just for basketball reasons. There’s another part of me that wants to see the whole big baller thing hit L.A through the NBA.

            • Kylroy

              I’ll believe it when I see it. I have trouble envisioning LaVar respecting anyone who could potentially compete with him as an authority in his son’s life.

            • Regina

              I don’t know, I think Lavar is going to act a fool and whoever gets his son will regret it!

      • Kylroy

        Maximum comedy would see Ball picked by someone on the east coast, or a smaller market. But I think the Lakers will probably take him.

            Hopefully the Greek Freak and my boy Brogdon will get you there! I went to UVA (Wahoowa!) so I’m rooting for the rookie. :)

              YAY, a fellow believer! We can keep hope alive together.

      Wyppipo are always more outraged at the protest or discussion of racism than racism itself.

      • miss t-lee

        You see it.

        Blacks are supposed to pretend that their inferior position in society is an inherent biological flaw that justifies white supremacy.

    • MsSula

      Yeah same. But as retribution I would like to see the squad who took them out beat to a pulp. It could have been by Boston for all I care. Lol.

      • miss t-lee

        Hahaha.

    I root for LeBron the man every day. But LeBron the basketball player is losing in 5.

    • MsCee

      Nah, can’t let KD’s weak a$$ get a ring.

      • Aintnuthinwrongwitcornbread

        For that comment alone, if you ever need a kidney or money, as long as my kids don’t need it first, I got you. F%@K KD!!!

        • MsCee

          I actually need money right now. Glad you offered!

          • Aintnuthinwrongwitcornbread

            The exchange is no good I’m afraid, and the twins want toys. Lemme hit my Lotto Max this Friday (55Mil or 41M USD) and I’ll send you some change!

      • Dopamine

        LOL so much KD slander! Let that man enjoy his life living in the beautiful Bay Area winning rings. I woulda done the exact same thing in his position.

              these dudes took a “SUPERVILLAINS” photo…

              with “SUPERVILLAINS” spelled out behind them IN BALLOONS.

          • MsSula

            Now that’s shade I can believe in. Loll.

          • orchid921

            Bwahahahahahaaaaa!!!! I like the Warriors, but this is hilarious.

        • Madam CJ_Skywalker

          Right?! Let some major organization show me them $$ and their winning ways…

        • orchid921

          My husband HATES Durant for going to the Warriors and I said what you just said above. We went back and forth for a while … and then he went and pulled the trump card: He asked me how I would have felt if Starks or Oakley or Ewing (gasp!!) had jumped ship to the Bulls in the early 90s instead of staying with the Knicks. The look on my face said everything. I was heated and he knew it! I’m still rooting for the Dubs, though. Sorry.

      • miss t-lee

        *cackling*

      • HouseSublime

        I don’t want that to happen but it’s looking likely.

      • Brother Mouzone

        Dayum!!!

    • NoDramaCiCi

      Not happening

      • Dopamine

        Warriors take game 1 and 2, Cavs win game 3 at home, warriors steal game 4 in Cleveland and close it out in 5 at Oracle. Klay Thompson is the X factor he’s due for a coming out party.
