Default Jordan never did what Lebron did?

really?

I just checked some stats, and this is what Jordan averaged in the 1988-89 season:

32.5 ppg, on .538 fg%, 8rpg, 8apg, 2.89 spg, 0.8bpg

and here are a few other notable credentials

Quote:
Awards

14 time All-Star
Olympic Gold Medalist—1984, 1992
Five time MVP—1988, 1991, 1992, 1996, 1998
7 time The Sporting News MVP
Rookie of the Year—1984
Defensive Player of the Year—1988
11 times All-NBA—10 times first team, 1 time second team
9 time All-Defensive First Team
Sports Illustrated "Sportsman of the Year"—1991
Named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History in 1996
Records

Most scoring titles—10

Highest career scoring average—30.12
Highest career scoring average playoffs—33.45
Most consecutive games scoring in double figures—866

Lebron is a great player, don't get me wrong, but the guy has a long way to go before he can even be in the discussion.

Well, an assortment of already accomplished milestones for LeBron at the young, ripe age of 22-years says otherwise.

I could find them, but I don't have the time. But it's more than safe to say he's WELL on his way to eclipsing Jordans' individual achievements.

No need to for this thread, IMO.

Since Kobe is kind of slowing down this season, Lebron is now the new threat to Jordan's legacy? Jordan-Fans beware.... lebron will be the GOAT...

No Need to Destroy Lebron James reputation by comparing him to the GOAT name Michael Jordan.

I still believe that Lebron James will surpassed all of MJ's Accomplishment, and set a new standards for being the best SF of all time.

No, Jordan never did what LeBron did. Jordan never choked in a championship series, in the process turning in one of the worst NBA Finals performances by a team-leading superstar in history.

Michael Jordan was eliminated thrice in the 1st round of the playoffs from 1984-1987, in the process after learning from his past mistakes, and getting a decent supporting casts in the 1990's, he lead the Chicago Bulls to 6th Championship as the team-leading superstar.

Lebron James took a crappy team in the NBA Finals, and that is enough for a 22 yrs.old to carry the burden of making his teammates better because in the end the much superior Spurs is still the better team not because Duncan average only 18 PPG in the NBA Finals, But both Parker and Manu Ginobili played one of the best championship series in their basketball career.

Mannn how can you say that, Lebron has been in the League just 4 years, but has exactly:

Titles > 0
MVP's > 0
Finals MVP's > 0
Scoring titles > 0
NBA 1st Teams > 1
and ROY honours...

so as far as individual achievments, Lebron quite frankly has not done all that much, but im sure he will in the next 5 to 10 years, so until he earns MVP or wins a Chip he has no arguement against MJ's achievments...

Lebron is already ahead of Jordan in some stats, but those stats do not Lebron>>Jordan at the 22 age mark.

No its not safe to say that. The records that he has are all "youngest ever" records, and the 25 straight points game. Thats it.
