I don't know.

No doubt Jordan was a real jerk to his teammates at times. It is well documented.

But it was all about demanding excellence.

Look at some of the guys who couldn't wait to stop playing with Lebron. Irving and Isaiah Thomas spring to mind. High caliber players. Lebron does not want anybody to even think about doing anything but catering to his greatness.

Guys like Kevin Love are ok with it. Love is a great talent but he's more than ok being sort of a supporting cast guy. Wade and Bosh got by only because they are very close with Lebron. Irving demanded to be traded away from a team that everybody knew was going to keep going back to the finals.

Why?

Because Irving didn't think that he could rise up so long as he played in the domineering shadow of Lebron James.

Make no mistake, as a Cleveland fan, I'm really glad that Lebron has played basketball in Cleveland. No Championship without him. But if I look at him objectively, in the context of sports in general, I see a guy who is perhaps the greatest talent in the sport's history, but missing components of being a teammate and a leader.

As for Kyrie, I just figured it was an ego thing. He wanted to be *THE* guy, and he knew he could never be that as long as LeBron was around. I admit my take is just basic, though, while yours digs deeper into the root of the situation.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek

If you consider things like history and marketing, Jordan is the greatest.

But I still say in terms of basketball ability, LeBron is the best ever.

I think so.

He is the complete package. He can do more things than Michael Jordan ever could, and is more team oriented. He is just amazing.

He can't win championships like Jordan. Jordan showed you will win if I play. He took time off after his fathers death and the Bulls took time off from being Champions. He came back, and they got it back. There is only 2 teams he he will be champions with next year. Celtics or Golden State. He won't go to either. He might get one more ring someday. His best shot is to stay in Cleveland and help them build. But the Celtics are going to rock the East next year if the team stays healthy. Their bench of rookies took them to game 7 of the eastern conference finals.

In other words, Jordan is the best.

Lebron is headed for Los Angeles he already has a home there that they live in the off season Plus his wife hates Cleveland.
