    Put simply, I don't think MJ stans can even agree on Mike's crowning achievement since they were all weak sauce compared to what he had to work with.

    Meanwhile you got LeBron James beating one of the most impressive teams ever in SAS (hitting an all-time clutch shot in Game 7 that people like to try to forget about). 73-9, the GOAT achievement, was just gravy.

    Lebron was mostly destroyed by the Spurs (1-2) and Warriors (1-3) - the one time he came through is an exception to the rule of him getting destroyed

    Mostly losing and coming thru once in a rare while isn't goat

    Otoh, mostly WINNING is the goat standard

    what's more embarrassing is that your so low iq that you think that mj beating the best passer of all time and the second best scorer of all time is embarrassing. Common sense and all of the advanced metrics say that jazz team was great. They were better than every team LeBron beat in the finals except the warriors. 2012 okc were loaded but they were puppy's. None of there star players we're over 23. 2013 spurs were good but Duncan and manu were well past there prime. Jazz were better than both those teams.

    LeBron's win against the warriors was better than any of mj's but mj still faced a very good team in the jazz. Sonic's were very good also.

    Why wouldn't MJ beat the KD-less warriors, considering Kawhi/Lebron beat them, and they're 8-10 in Finals games without KD (0-3 overall Finals record if not for injuries in 15')???

    How is that a team that MJ can't beat??.... ... I want answers..

    Additionally, Lebron had his OWN super-team to beat the Warriors (2 all-star teammates), and therefore more firepower than MJ ever had - give MJ an extra all-star like Lebron had, and he would sweep any team in history

    you're correct, jazz do have stockton and malone and sonics have a great starting 5. Those teams are very good. I'm taking spurs over them however. Parker was in his prime in 13, kawhi is a top lvl defensive specialist at least, danny green is a great 3 and d guy and spurs had some great meaningful depth.

    Meanwhile utah is unimpressive outside their top 4 and hornacek and russell arent all stars or anything, more super role player types like portland batum and demarre carroll. There's bench minutes there but they just doesnt play as well as the spurs imo

    Sonics meanwhile have nice 5 but not the high end star in malone. I'm not sure prime kemp has a big edge over 13 duncan.

    How could you let yourself get lied to by the dumb media??... Doesn't that make you feel dumb and weak? ..

    Or I guess you don't realize that you're being bamboozled and successfully targeted by a marketing campaign...

    The reality is that Lebron didn't face Durant in 15' or 16' - so Durant's injuries this year are irrelevant.. Furthermore, Durant actually gave the Warriors a 1 quarter boost in Game 5, which offsets Klay's missed quarter in Game 6 - so Klay only missed 1 game just like Dray in 16'..

    Most importantly, Curry was hurt in 16' with 22.6 ppg compared to a healthy 30.5 this year.. Lebron never faced Cousins either, yet Cousins performed better (9/6) than his counterpart in 16' (bogut's 3/3).. Iggy was also banged up in 16' and played much better in 19'.

    Accordingly, fans/media like yourself are simply deluding yourself - so the next time Lebron fails, you won't see it coming because you ignore facts like the ones I just posted.. just like you didn't see Lebron's missed playoffs this year or Kawhi exceeding Lebron's best East run this year..

    Again, all of MJ's Finals opponents would beat the KD-less Warriors, since everyone else did:

    the KD-less Warriors are 8-10 without KD in the Finals (0-3 overall if not for 15' injuries) - so again, all of MJ's Finals opponents were better . They didn't make as many Finals because there was more parity in the 90's west (more than 1 good team in the conference)
