LeBron will end up as a great player hall of fame whatever but never ever ever will he be on Jordan's level.

It's unlikely, simply because it's unlikely for any player to reach Jordan's level. LeBron strikes me more as a Magic Johnson player than a pure scorer like Jordan was, but that's starting to change for the better. Also LeBron is going to have to develop his post game more, last year his was great but it is still raw and relies heavily on his athleticism, so he can continue dominating through his 30's.

The Miami thing kind hurt his legacy though. And he's still weak on the perimeter. But if he wins 5-7 rings I don't see why he wouldn't be in the conversation.

Maybe but I doubt he will reach that level

He has to win at least 3 more championships and Finals MVP's. With the new look Lakers and the Thunder getting better and better I don't see that happening. LeBron is nowhere near surpassing Kobe or Magic let alone Jordan.

People act like Miami winning last year was such am incredible accomplishment when it really wasn't. They beat an old and crippled Boston team to get to the Finals and a very young, dumb, and inexperienced Thunder team to win the championship. On top of that it was a lockout shortened season. I just wasn't that impressed with their championship run.

If they can do it again I'll be impressed, but they have zero size in the middle so I don't really see them beating us. Another thing is Wade is on a deep decline and given he knee issues could be finished in a couple of seasons.
