Jordan was surrounded by better players.
Teams weren't allowed to jam the key in Jordan's day like they are today with zone and complex defenses.
Also, LeBron is the first Twitter era superstar, every moment will be scrutinized, no one else had to deal with this.
Magic choked away 1984 championship,
Bird came up short,
Kareem was made to look ridiculous,
Hakeem (well he was Akeem then) looked like he lacked effort in '86,
Shaq ate himself out of championships,
Wilt never fulfilled his potential,
Kobe, well we all witnessed those...
Bottom line, the hate needs to stop, the guy had back to back 30 plus games against the best organization of the millennium to this point down three-two.

That's not a plus, that's a mark against him. His knees wouldn't be in such poor shape if he had a more well rounded skilled game. The fact that he's still mainly a basket attacker in his 10th season is the reason for the chronic injuries.
