Is it a high standard hell yeah, do many if any life up to it? Hardly.
But saying someone is better than Jordan at a certain points of the game is not wrong to do, cause he wasnt perfect and he wasnt best at EVERYTHING.
But generally i dont agree with comparing players of diffirent times and eras together unless it is just for fun, specially when the players dont even play the same position on a team.
Never, not yet, there is no one who can live up to being compared with Jordan right now. Adn it's a shame because for guys like Lebron, or Kobe, who are tagged as the Second Coming it's a bar that if they don't reach they fail. The media makes them out to be dissapointments because they're not Mike.
