This is a close call between Jordan and LeBron, but I will have to go with LeBron. LeBron is simply a beast who can score at anytime, but he is not that selfish. He is only 23 or so years old and already has numerous triple doubles and is in the top 100 scoreres in NBA history. When his career is over, he will have many championships, have been the #1 scorer in the NBA, and would have been considered the best NBA player of all time.

Michael Jordan! LeBron James may be the best around at the moment, however, Jordan is arguably the greatest ever! I think to compare them today is hugely premature.

With all his potential, Lebron James may indeed become a player of Jordanesque stature in a few years; although, I stress, I is far too early to make such a debate.

The bottom line is Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Lebron James are the 3 greatest players to ever live.

LeBron James

You almost got it right, almost; Jordan is the best player that has ever played the game. Jordan has 6 more championships than Lebron. Lebron, along with Kobe and Carmelo are extremely talented, but right now, Michael is the better player. When it's all said and done, we can tell who is better.

Micheal Jordan.

Back in the old times, if you watch some games back then, they make playing Basketball look so easy. Why? Because before, every team back then always kept it simple(play style). Now a days, players use a lot of iso (tricks like between the legs, behind the back, etc etc.). I'm not saying it's bad to use iso, it's just that iso makes basketball look harder. Players who keep their play style simple: Deron Williams, Tony Parker. (yet their still all stars.) Lebron uses iso from time to time and he's still awesome, mike uses iso occasionally though. Plus "air jordan" is a 6-time nba finals mvp, led scoring in the nba 10 times, was like a 12 time all-star, all-star mvp, and the bulls did not return to the play offs until 2005 since RETIREMENT. Lebron is a 3-time league mvp, a finals mvp, and the cars struggled since LEAVING.

Will LeBron James career be better than Michael Jordan's?

Michael Jordan was the greatest basketball player to ever play the game. That, however, might change once Lebron James finishes his career. Lebron is without a doubt the best basketball player right now in 2009 and will be for the rest of his career. Let's put it this way: Lebron James came out of high school and dominated in the NBA immediately. No one has done that in the history of the NBA. Although Michael Jordan was the "great one" Lebron James will be the greatest basketball player to play the game when he is done.
