Actually his defense has gone to shit and KD will see to it that he never wins another ring. If and when Lebron does win another ring due to longevity, he won't win a FMVP with it. Don't be mad at KD, he's only giving Lebron a taste of his own medicine.

LeBron joined a 73 win team, led by the two time reigning MVP that was three minutes from being back to back champions? Somehow I missed that.

No, he joined a former FMVP that averaged 30 in the finals, and the best PF in the east at the time on one time to further water down the conference

Just ask yourself, would KD have ever joined the Warriors if Lebron joined the Heat?

16 finals and entire 2012 playoffs top everything MJ and Kobe ever done defensively.

This is actually true. When Jordan has faced teams even remotely this tough he has folded like a house of cards

Lebron is the only player with 30k points 8k ast 8k reb

Hate to say it but he has a great case at being better than MJ

Stockton is the all-time leader in assists and steals.. Malone is #2 in scoring

None of that matters because that's a length of career argument, not extent of domination argument.. Jordan's extent of domination was greater because his per game averages are higher, including 5 more PPG in the playoffs and also regular season as a Bull, on equal shooting efficiency and superior per possession efficiency, despite undertaking a FAR greater burden (percentage of team points scored)..

Obviously, lebron would be a far more dominant player if he was capable of averaging 5 more ppg on equal orbetter efficiency, despite undertaking a far greater burden....

Ultimately, MJ has 6 rings to lebron's 3, while achieving higher stats (#1 all-time PER, win share per game, and PPG), and dominating many of the best players lebron ever faced (so the bill russell argument doesnt apply).. Jordan also never lost when he was expected to win, whereas lebron has several times

Actually that shows length OF domination.

if we want to see what Jordan would be like today look no further than DeRozan. Elite athleticism, Elite footwork, Elite mid-range shot. Yet routinely gets destroyed by LeBron
