Default Lebron vs Jordan, who's better athletically?

I think this is one of the toughest comparisons possible, lebron is a 6'8 freak of nature freight train, while Jordan is the godified 6'6 perfect all around size. let's compare their individual attributes

Size: Lebron >> Jordan
Strength: Lebron = Jordan*
Vertical: Jordan >> Lebron
Speed: ???
Quickness: Jordan >> Lebron
Body control: Jordan > Lebron
Stamina: Jordan = Lebron
Durability: Jordan = Lebron

*footnote: Jordan is known as one of the strongest guards ever, barkley once mentioned that Jordan had the body strength of a power forward

If we are talking athletically, meaning pertaining to his ability as an athlete, I think you gotta throw in the category of attitude/mindset for good measure.

LeBron will never be like Jordan in that department.

Horry basically brushed off Bron when asked about him, bringing up MJ's name and stating how strong he was. Magic also alluded to this in the past, saying how underrated Mj's strength was.

Then there's those that say MJ had the speed of a pg. One cat I knew played in the Space Jam games. Said MJ was faster than PGs, he was amazed at how fast he was. It's also said how he could go from one side of the court to another with tremendous speed.

The best argument Bron can make regarding speed is the length of his legs. He may be able to cover more ground than MJ, but it isn't due to his turnover (the speed his legs move).

LeBron

MJ would never be able to put up LeBron's production if he had his skill-level.

Lebron is basically an upgraded version of Jordan. Just as fast, but even stronger.

You're an idiot if you think 205lbs of muscle is stronger than 265lbs of muscle. An absolute idiot. Though you've proven this in the past.

LOL, that's what speed is asshole, how much ground you cover. If so, I guess we should count Yohan Blake as quicker than Usain Bolt since he takes more steps in the 100m...

Initially reading your posts here, I thought you were stuck in your ways, but it turns out you're just not very bright. You genuinely lack common sense and rational thinking.

Ever heard of POUND FOR POUND idiot?

As far as speed, I was trying to draw the difference between turnover and ground being covered due to length. Bolt has a combination of high turnover rate and long strides the difference in turnover rate in that echelon is minimal, almost the same for the most part. That's all I did, was give a slight illustration asshole.

It seems as tho you're not the bright one and lack rational thinking ho.

Pound for pound is always going to go to lighter athletes. Its the way of the world. Shorter limbs, less work, less distance to use energy over.
Its an argument over who is the better athlete... You're not going to claim Jordan was stronger than Shaq when it comes to a one vs one debate in comparing an athlete, and it won't make a difference in this one either.

Bolts turnover rate is actually alarmingly ahead of everyone for such a short distance. 41 steps to 46 for Yohan Blake.

You've been exposed before for it, yet you love to chime in on debates where you have little to no knowledge. You read one bit of information on something, or in some cases none, and act like you know everything on the subject. Several posters have shown you up on it before.
