Jordan vs. Lebron vs. Kobe, Really? Children, Please!!!!

Jordan vs. Lebron vs. Kobe, Really? Children, Please!!!!

Comparison of Awards/Trophies of Lebron James, Kobe Bryant & Michael Jordan

I am sick of hearing people still try and debate that Lebron James (and to a lesser extent Kobe Bryant) is better than Michael Jordan, not a chance or like this meme says and the great Ochocinco aka Chad Johnson, Child Please! Jordan was one of a kind, probably one of a lifetime. His ability to not only dominate games, throw up monster numbers, win games/awards and his ability to make the players around him great. I mean Horace Grant, really?

There was a period of time when everyone, even old school ESPN, was hyping Horace Grant and he ended up getting a big contract and a shoe deal. Yes, a shoe deal, wish Asics of all companies (I know this because I owned a pair, yeah I was cool – rocking the Horace Grant Asics haha). People really thought Horace Grant was that good but after Jordan was gone he was an average center at best. Needless to say he did not live up to the hype and never reached the levels he had during the Jordan days. He bounced from a few teams ultimately retiring with the Lakers.

I will stop with my rant on why Jordan is far better than anyone playing today but heres a quick rundown.
