    3ball, Jordan could never get his head above the rim like LeBron here. LeBron is the GOAT one foot leaper and it's not even close

    a reminder that we have never seen an ingame proof of Ordan actually having a 40 inch vert

    Or how about the hangtime reverse layups or hangtime jumpers like the one over Ehlo - it's strange to think of lebron taking those shots because he can't and never does

    This thread is terrible

    I know you haven't watched basketball since Jordan's Wizard retirement but LeBron has plenty of hang time. You often see it when he's battling through contact on layups. Not gonna knock MJ as he's done some shit out of this world.

    Lots of guys have hangtime and lebron's isn't horrible

    But it's nothing like MJ's and no one's is

    MJ's hangtime on layups and jumpers made him goat

    SB Nation details the Spurs' exploitation of Lebron/Wade skillset


    There's a reason Miami is struggling when lebron/wade are on the floor together.. The Spurs' defensive strategy throughout the playoffs has been simple: identify players who aren't good spot-up shooters and help mercilessly off them to cramp the space of penetrators.

    Wade has been one of the players San Antonio identified as a poor spot-up shooter that can be helped off mercilessly. That has cramped LeBron's space when the two are in together. The inverse is also true: the Spurs are shrinking Wade's space by helping off LeBron.

    However, when one of the two is out of the game in favor of additional perimeter shooting, there's nobody the Spurs can help off, giving LeBron and Wade more space to be themselves and attack San Antonio's air-tight schemes.


    https://www.sbnation.com/2013/6/19/4...-finals-game-6


    TLDR: the Spurs forced Wade and Lebron to be spot-up shooters (their weakness) by leaving them open when the other guy drives.. otoh, Jordan was an elite spot-up shooter and off-ball player, so the Spurs couldn't employ their strategy and would lose.. otoh, the Spurs perfected their strategy in 14' and destroyed the Heat

    Jordan did everything

    He drop-step posterized and knocked Barkley over.. ditto his ex sidekick Woolridge

    Yet he also mitigated defenders while in the air with no peer

    aka he did everything.. he was a missile and a hang-glider... elite on-ball and off-ball.. so there was no way for teams to exploit Jordan like teams did Lebron quite overtly (see previous post above)

    He should have used that hang time instead of letting Reggie Lewis block him 4 times in 1 game.
