When the Los Angeles Lakers signed LeBron James, it marked the first big name free agent the Lakers had signed since Dwight Howard (and we all know how that turned out). Adding the best player in the world to a young core that was destined to break out, seemed like a lock for the playoffs. Although the Lakers got out to a shaky start, a strong November and December had them sitting at 4th in the West and a 19-14 going into Christmas day. As we all know, LeBron James suffered a groin injury that day, yet the Lakers still managed an impressive win over the Warriors. Since that day, the Lakers have gone 8-15, including a 42 point blow out by the Oladipo-less Pacers, and now sit at 10th in the West.

Air Jordan or The King? Although hundreds of millions debate on whether or not LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan within the confines of a 94 by 50-foot wood floor, most people often overlook the competition between the two in respect to their cultural and economic impact.
Now I know it may seem like Jordan is far ahead of LeBron in these aspects if you make this argument based on the present. But keep in mind MJ is 22 years older and therefor has had more time to accumulate money and build up his Jordan Brand empire, while LeBron is still playing in the latter part of his prime. After all, it wouldn’t be fair to solve the debate of MJ vs. LeBron on the court by facing a 55-year-old Jordan against a 33-year-old James. Read Full Article Here!
