Lebron is a way more talented player than Jordan, physically he is a total freak of nature. As an all-round player itís a much murkier discussion.

Name something that Lebron can do that MJ couldn't? Is Lebron indefinitely even better than Kobe?

I didn't say he wasn't - there aren't many professional athletes who aren't mercenaries though

There's nothing MJ could do that LeBron can't. Same goes in reverse. It's about what one could do better then the other.

Yes, he was definitely better than Kobe.

Mercenary who took pay cuts to make sure teams could build around him.

You canít compare them, basketball bears no comparison now to when Jordan played, much tougher scoring then, a lot more contact. Remember the Pistons & Knicks of the early 90s?

Jordan also won DPOY I think

New look Cavs putting an absolute beating on the Celtics in Boston to spoil Paul Pierce's jersey retirement.

Pretty cool and inspiring story about Seahawks rookie CB Shaquill Griffin's brother, Shaquem. Hand his left hand amputated as a kid but was DPOY in the AAC last year and could well be in his way to the NFL

Lighting up the combine and a cert to get drafted. Great story.

Absolutely amazing. Fair play to the lad.....some story. 4.38 speed at that size. Mental.

Saquon Barkley had some combine too. Outrageous athlete. I wonder are Cleveland still feeling burnt by the Trent Richardson experience or do they take this guy.

I haven't seen Saquon Barkley play so this isn't a well informed opinion but i'd be amazed if the Browns (or anyone else for that matter) took a RB first overall. Serviceable running backs are two a penny in the later rounds of the draft. I think the Browns have passed on one too many QBs in recent years to not take a QB with the first pick. Unless of course they land Cousins in which case they might trade down.
