I'm probably going to piss a few people off with this statement but here's the reason why #LBJ is better than #MJ . Way back in 1993 #MichaelJordan had retired from the #ChicagoBulls and the #NBA after winning 3 #NBAChampionships in 3 #NBAFinals appearances while playing alongside Scottie Pippen. In the 1994 NBA season the #Chicago #Bulls went on to win 55 games behind the play of start small forward #ScottiePippen without #Jordan . The would eventually lose in the second round of the playoffs to my favorite team the #NewYorkKnicks and #PatrickEwing . Fast forward a bit to the 2007 #LeBronJames single handily put the #ClevlelandCavaliers on his back and brought them to the NBA Finals even though they lost to the legendary #SanAntonioSpurs team that had #TimDuncan . LeBron didn't have someone of Scottie Pippen's caliber to help him. He did it on his own. Fast forward to the 2010 offseason and LeBron left for the #MiamiHeat . He went on to make 4 NBA Finals and win two of them alongside a broken down #DwyaneWade and #ChrisBosh . Meanwhile the #Cavs couldn't make it out of the draft lottery without LeBron. Rewind back to the 1995 season Michael Jordan made his return and went on to win 3 more championships alongside #DennisRodman and Pippen. After Jordan left for the #WashingtonWizards . Now Jordan had no help. No Scottie Pippen and No Dennis Rodman to help him. What happened when Jordan was in #DC ? They missed the playoffs all his years in #Washington . Fast forward to the 2014 offseason and LeBron decided to head back home to Cleveland to fulfill his promise of delivering a championship to his hometown Cavaliers. In his first season back Miami couldn't recover from the loss of LeBron James to the Cavs and subsequently missed the playoffs. Those same playoffs LeBron once again put the team on his back as #KevinLove and #KyrieIrving were both injured and out for the playoffs and he brought the Cavs to the NBA Finals by himself were the lost to the #GoldenStateWarriors in 6 Games! That's right even with no help LeBron still pushed the Warriors to 6 games. Last season LeBron went on to actually win it all with the Cavaliers with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving.
