Re: Will there ever be an NBA equivalent of Brady?
Michael Jordan is certainly greater than Brady. Jordan was a 1-man wrecking crew on both ends of the court, dominating like no one else. Jordan never lost in the finals, and if it wasn't for the fact that he retired for 2yrs in the middle of his prime, he probably would have won 8 in a row. He also dominated in physical 90s rather than the protection Brady gets in football. There were also schemes designed just to slow down Jordan ("Jordan rules"). I'm sorry but Brady is not a Jordan equivalent.
LeBron is probably a better comparison to Brady except in number of championships. If LeBron had a coach like Popovich/Belichik his entire career, he would definitely be the Brady equivalent, perhaps even greater, but he never had a great coach.
