There is arguably only two players currently in the NBA that can be talked about in the same sentence as Michael Jordan… One is Kobe Bryant and the second is LeBron James. Having just won his first NBA Championship this past June with the Miami Heat, LeBron James has always been compared to one of the greatest players in NBA History. Right now I don’t believe LeBron James is in the same discussion simply based on the fact that he has only 1 championship ring and still has a lot of work to catch up to the likes of Michael Jordan. I would safely say Kobe Bryant has had a career that could be compared more closely to Jordan’s but still no where near what Jordan did for the sport.
