Default Everyone knows Jordan but not Lebron

Iím telling you from decades of personal experience. I have never met a single person in my life who doesnít know Michael Jordan. He is like a Michael Jackson. Lebron is not even close to the same iconic figure. I run into people all the time who never heard of Lebron. They donít watch basketball of course. But they all have heard of Curry too. They donít say his first name right but they know who he is. But many non sports fans shrug when you mention Lebron and say theyíre into other sports. So how could Lebron ever have a case for Goat when not only does he fall short with Finals percentages and stats compared to KD, but he isnít known as well as Jordan or Curry. Kobe is also a bigger household name. Lebron is mostly banking off Stanís. Speaking of which, Iíve never heard of anyone over 20 who hasnít heard of Eminem. But many non sports fans donít know anything about James. And part of that is he has lost most of his finals and casuals just pay attention to winners only.

Lebron is not a cross-cultural icon like Jordan and Kobe.

He is too unsophisticated, speaks in broken english and ugly to make it big with Europe.

Pictured: Me and my girlfriend Mufundu (she is an african ballet dancer), discussing Michael Jordan over cafť and croissant.

Kobe is definitely an honorary European.

How do these nitwits manage to butcher the English language living in USA? Did they suffer a blow to the head shortly after being born?

This is very true.

My mom wouldn't even know who or what a LeBron is.
Doubt my sister does too.
Or a bunch of chicks I work with.

Michael Jordan on the other hand....I feel sorry for people who couldn't witness just how polarizing MJ was back in the day.

I cringe at anyone who didn't witness this, trying to say LeBron is anything even close to what MJ was or is.

Doesn't change the fact that LeBron is the better basketball player

I remember seeing a video on YouTube where Europeans were shown pictures of American athletes and literally none of them knew who they were but they all knew MJ for some reason.
