The GOAT debate between Michael Jordan and LeBron James will continue to rage on for decades among NBA fans. Jordan has more titles as of right now, but James has arguably done more with less.
Jordan's Chicago Bulls teams were stacked with talent, and fans can list those starting fives and marvel at how one team amassed so much talent before the modern era of Big Threes and superteams. Try comparing those squads side by side with some of the teams James carried deep into the playoffs with the Cleveland Cavaliers -- a comparison of both supporting casts is not even close.
Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen was the teammte Jordan shared the court with most often; James dragged some bad Cavs teams that featured decent-not-great Zydrunas Ilgauskas as his effective right-hand man. The Akron product did not play with real stars until he got to Miami, where he teamed up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh for four seasons and won two titles.
He then returned to Cleveland and got to play with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, but naturally, both of those two were injured during the 2015 NBA Finals.
A debate surrounding legacy is always tough to do while one or both guys are still playing. Yet, MJ fans will never back down when it comes to their guy being the GOAT. There is just no question that a team featuring Jordan's most common teammates would likely destroy one with James and his most common guys, and that's absolutely a reason to credit LBJ.
