Leading up to the Miami Heat’s game on Tuesday night, LeBron James was the hot topic all day.
Talking heads all over the place gawked over LeBron’s streak of games with 30+ points and 60 percent shooting, a streak that he stretched to an NBA-record six games against Portland last night.
However, in the world of ESPN’s First Take where everything in sports has to be a debate, the comparisons between Michael Jordan and James began flooding airwaves of all kinds.
On Twitter, television, podcasts and other avenues, “Who’s better, LeBron or MJ?” was said like a refrain on Tuesday.
Early Wednesday morning though, James took to Twitter to address the ongoing debate.
I’m not MJ, I’m LJ
— LeBron James (@KingJames) February 13, 2013
Simply spoken, but perfectly said from the reigning NBA MVP.
LeBron is 28 years old and still has about half his career to play. Jordan has obviously already finished out his career. Because of that, it’s impossible to compare the two.
When LeBron retires from the league and has a complete body of work, then the debate of who’s better can be brought up. For now, we should take the words of James to heart and just let him be “LJ.”
