    The funny thing about this LeBron/Jordan stuff is that I remember hating it just as much when they did it when Jordan was in his prime. When the question was Bird or Magic, at least there was some fun debate going back and forth. But when they started declaring Jordan to be The Best Ever, it just got old. It seemed *important* to a lot of people that Jordan be ranked over Bird as soon as possible, just like it seems *important* to them to crown LeBron now. And that was when it was confined to a few sports shows on cable and radio. I can’t imagine what it would have been like with today’s social media.

    Spot on assessment. Seven-ish years ago my son, now 20, could not stand it when I told him Lebron’s good and all, but the problem being he disappears in the 4th quarter. I’m still not fond of some of his antics, but I chalk that up to the ubiquitous generational gap. You now get to the 4th…or get to that closeout game…and you know it’s curtains. I give him his due as “the best”, but I don’t see a path to him taking over the title of “greatest”. Lebron would need to elevate the play of today’s version of Will Perdue, Luc Longley, Bill Wennington, and the ever-uncomfortable looking Bill Cartwright to accomplish that feat.
