7 Reasons Why LeBron James Will Surpass Michael Jordan As The Greatest Player Ever
5. Supporting Cast and Coach
Michael Jordan played in one of the most stable situations possible. He had the greatest coach ever in Phil Jackson, a hall of fame sidekick in Scottie Pippen, and the best role player ever in Dennis Rodman. LeBron in his first stint with Cleveland only had Mike Brown and an over-the-hill Shaq. For heavens sake LeBron took a starting lineup of Larry Hughes, Sasha Pavlovic, Drew Gooden, and Z to the NBA Finals. Yes LeBron did win 2 championships with Wade and Bosh but Jordan did not do it by himself either. LeBron has returned to a young inexperienced Cavs team and will try to lead them to some rings. Jordan had it relatively easier with his coach and supporting cast.
