  • LeBron logged 48 minutes in his 15th season to lead his team to the 8th straight Finals. Hard to put his accomplishments into words.

  • It’s never been fair to consistently compare LeBron to Jordan. Many of us have an emotional connection to Jordan since I was learning how to play hoops while watching his amazing shots that I always tried to mimic with my tongue out. Rather than always compare things to reach other let’s just give LeBron credit that he’s worked hard and has proven to be one of the best to play the game. It was a great game to watch so kudos to the Cavs and Celtics for playing their hearts out....

  • For the 8th year in a row, the Eastern Conference runs through Lebron James. Are we finally ready to compare him to Michael Jordan yet???

  • Family man. Man of the people. Relentless fighter. Relentless leader. Unafraid to hold his ground. Unafraid to stand up for others.

    LeBron might be King James, but he's a king of the people and we are so fortunate for kids to have him as a role model.

    Now excuse me while I cry in the corner as a masochist aka a longtime Knicks fan.

  • I’m not here to argue MJ vs LBJ. That being said, Lebron is a generational talent. How can you not recognize the greatness that his game is??? We may never get to see a player of this caliber again in our lifetime. As someone who hated on LBJ after his move to Miami, take it from me, don’t miss this opportunity to marvel at basketball godhood. Cheer for your team, but enjoy the reign of the King!

  • There’s a word - GOAT. He is at the very least tied with MJ, but even this old warhorse is starting to think he may be better...

  • Not an LBJ fan but the guy is just unbelivable. At Celtics home, without Love, with mostly unreliable teammates, he carried his team. He is just a beast.

  • LeBron has power , no body can match him.

    M. J. Dance while he play , no body can match his artistic.

    They both great in their ways.

  • What an amazing talent!!!

  • NO WAY !!!
