Lebron is just going to have to do to AD what Shaq did to Kobe. That is take a backseat to Kobe during their 3 title runs and understand that Kobe was the first option.

In 1998, MJ was MVP over 5 of the best players that lebron ever faced, who were all-stars that year - Shaq, Duncan, Garnett, Kobe, Kidd.. he also won all-star MVP, Finals MVP, scoring champ and 1st team all-defense over these guys.

MJ simply faced better players - Shaq, Hakeem, Robinson, Malone, Grant Hill, and Penny would all be top 10 talents in today's game.

So there's zero basis for weak era argument, especially when you look at the stats and rules - pace and DRtg were low back then, whereas DRtg set record highs for each of the last 3 years and pace is much higher than the 90's too..

It's also common knowledge that it's much easier to score for perimeter players today due to spacing, hands-off defense, and freedom of movement mandates

So when you say the 90's is weak - it's based on the same thing as saying the sky is pink - nothing

I'd say it wil be a 1a and 1b connection, but okay, if it makes you obsessive Bran haters glad then he can be the 2b?
