The King is no Heir to Air Jordan's throne.

 King James is No Air Jordan, now and will never be. I’m not saying he won't be an excellent basketball player and leave his mark as one of the best in the league, but Jordan is still in a league of his own. Lebron reminds me more of Magic than Jordan and that's not too shabby. After all if Magic Johnson's career had played out he to would be remember for how great he truly was. But Lebron size and athletic ability seems to fit more of Magic the MJ, and he should play as such. He can not be all over the floor he is just too big, he needs to become some one who can move the mall quickly and efficiently, rather than making shots for himself the Jordan could. Jordan's presence on the floor instantly made everyone around him better. His team would see better shots, be in better position and even carry themselves better on the court; it’s obvious that the Cavs can't say the same thing about King James yet. Although he could score from anywhere on the floor, he can not play to MJ's level, especially on defense. So I have had enough of all this " The Next Jordan", especially from Lebron James. There will be no next Air Jordan as we learned from Grant Hill, Kobe Bryant and now Lebron. Just as there has not been any other Oscar Robertson, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell or Dr J's.  Sure they'll be greats but let Jordan go in peace, he's the best there ever was. So for all you out there ESPECIALLY King James stop with the Jordan talk, your not worthy!
