Jordan was the team, meaning that he was always way above everyone else on his team in points. LeBron James is the best player in the NBA currently. LeBron has a few statistics going in his favor like assists and rebounds. So unlike Jordan, he has more of an ability to keep play going and be less of a “ball hog”. He also has the three-point percentage lead (32.9%) which is important because three pointers are a lot bigger part of the game now than they were when MJ played.
He is an average shot blocker and decent off the ball defensively. His style of play usually revolves around setting high ball screens then popping back to stretch the defense and shoot the open three. He usually floats around the three point line looking for his shot, but he does have some skill inside the three. He is very aggressive attacking the basket and usually uses an inside out move to beat his defender then spins back when he gets cut off. He always seems to find a way to score.
G.O.A.T: Greatest Of All Time What does it mean to be the “G.O.A.T?” Although it is not a real, physical award, being the G.O.A.T. means to defy gravity, to be able to control yourself while moving smoothly in the air, to split through double-teams, to carve through defenders like a surgeon, and to change the game forever. To be able to be recognized as the “Greatest Of All Time” is more than just a title, being the greatest means that you have changed the way people view and play the game of basketball. The Black Mamba (Kobe Bryant) and Air Jordan (Michael Jordan) have done so. This comparison is one that will be made for years to come because of a multitude of reasons.
My two favorite players are Dwayne Wade and Lebron James. I also like them because they were never a team who were mentioned about like the Lakers, who have a good player at every position. That is why they have won two finals in a row. I know I already said I that I like the Heat because of Lebron James, but I actually like any team Lebron James is on. When I grow up I want to be just like Lebron James.
Carolina’s style of play is more of a fast break type of basketball that relies on raw athletic talent of the individual player. They rely on pressure defense to create a quick steal or turnover to quickly speed down to the other side of the court for a quick chance to score. Carolina relies on a quick run and gun style to attempt to outrun and out score their opponent. Duke recruits a different type of player then Carolina. Duke’s players are more fundamental sound but less athletic as a whole then Carolina.

Jordan changed the people's perspective on basketball. Before he joined the NBA, not many people really watched basketball because it didn’t have enough excitement in it. For example, the Chicago Bulls wasn’t very popular back then, they were one of the weakest team in the league. Only about 6 thousand fans showed up in home games, but Jordan being drafted to the Bulls changed that. Him joining the NBA helped increase its popularity.

They were his 2 favorite NBA teams ever. Both teams were Strong and lacking a Strong point guard. Plus he had connection to both teams’ managers and owners through his dad. His dad was Kobe Bryant who is the second best basketball player in history, second to the one and only Michael Jordan. Kobe retired at 36 after reinjuring his Achilles tendon.
