  • LeBron James.

  • Let's let's analyze and dissect this.

  • Michael Jordan, still having played a shorter career coming into the league at age 21 after three years in college.

  • Where's LeBron?

  • Came in the league 23 years earlier at age 18 and 19 and obviously did not go to college.

  • So Michael Jordan had, uh, you know, you could talk about the amount, the body of work on the N B.

  • A level fair enough because LeBron James didn't endure three years of college and he certainly didn't play in the same era that Michael Jordan played in.

  • They had to put in new rules.

  • The Jordan rules to stop Michael Jordan.

  • We know how physical the game of the NBA Waas.

  • We know how now you could get thrown out of the game for having bad breath, for crying out loud.

  • It's Cottonelle tissue soft.

  • I'm not talking about the players.

  • I'm talking about the error.

  • That's number one.

  • Then we get into the individual superlatives and we talk about a guy in Michael Jordan.

  • He's a 10 time scoring champion.

  • LeBron James has one.

  • He's got six wings.

  • LeBron has four.

  • He's a nine time all defensive player.

  • LeBron has five.

  • When you take from an individual perspective, LeBron James is universally respected.

  • Michael Jordan was universally feared.

  • There is a difference.

  • And you know that difference Because you being the stellar professional athletes that you were and the collegiate athlete that you were noticed I'm being kind market spirits because I didn't bring up how awful your l s u team.

  • Look, this past weekend, I was talking about before this because last year there today that reigning national champions.

  • But my God, how awful the LSU Tigers defense was They should be ashamed of where the uniforms.

  • But I'm gonna be nice, and I'm gonna leave it at that in the end of the video that you shouldn't even that's true because I picked Ala family.

  • Totally true.

  • You e Did I not just say that I did.

  • I just say I give that to you.

  • Don't interrupt me, OK, I said, I give it to you in the end, What it comes down to is this You look at Michael Jordan and the error that he lives in.

  • I've gotten into this argument with Isaiah Thomas on numerous occasions.

  • It absolutely discussed me that guys ignored the errors.

  • The errors is so important because it was so physical and the way that you know what they were allowed to get away with.

  • Enduring against you defensively and what have you.

  • Michael Jordan endured that all.

  • And essentially the last six seasons he completed in the n B A.

  • During those errors, he was a champion.

  • Took a 94 you know, 94 95 off came back to 17 games left in 95 96 the last six completely that he did in Chicago.

  • He won a championship.

  • Meanwhile, we lamented that soft tissue cottontail tissue conference that LeBron was playing it when he joined D.

  • Wade and Bosh in Miami and was in the Eastern Conference for the 1st 11 years of way.

  • Just have a difference of opinion.

  • Yes.

  • May I ask my mentor a question, please?

  • Yes, sir.

  • So should we never compare errors, then?

  • Should we always just say this was the greatest guy in this era?

  • Because I hear all of this talk about ah, bad man in Aaron Rodgers and I hear Patrick Mahomes is the best we've ever seen and gonna end up the greatest all time.

  • Should we never compare because you can't hit quarterbacks like you used to?

  • You can't put pressure on them like you used to.

  • They don't play the same violent game that they that I played when I was in the league or even before that.

  • Stephen.

  • So should we stop having the conversation about the greatest of all time in basketball?

  • Because the errors differ.

  • I sit back and I yield to the gentleman in New York.

  • Okay, Well, the answer to that question is, in most instances, you should.

  • But there are exceptions where you can literally watch the two individuals the impact that they have, particularly against opponents, what they bring to the table.

  • And you can deduce from that what it's all about when you consider the error the toughness of the era, the fact that Jordan was three inches shorter and about 30 to £40 lighter.

  • But even John Sally and the bad boy Pisces was talking about how they have to go at you because he's not human.

  • You have to take him before he takes off the aerial assault that he brought to the game.

  • The J how he's performed in the clutch.

  • The championships.

  • The list goes on and on.

  • There is no disrespect, toe LeBron James by saying You're on the Mount Rushmore off all of basketball.

  • I have them top two in the history of the game that started in 1946 and change his name to the N B A in 1950.

  • Whether it's 72 74 years, I can only think of one player that I believe is better than LeBron James.

  • And in his world, that's a damn insult.

  • Now somebody answer that question.

  • How is that an insult to say you number two all day When?

  • When?

  • When When Naysmith invented the game of basketball, it was LeBron James that he envisioned taking it to the next level.

  • Actually, leave it at that.

  • Actually, you're wrong.

  • Actually, you're wrong.

  • It was me.

  • It's Stephen a Smith.

  • Somebody e love it.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
