I don’t know if (James) has the ability to surpass (Jordan) or not. That’s yet to be seen. My version as LeBron being on par with Michael is this: They’re both on the golf course. Michael’s on the 18th hole. LeBron is somewhere on like the fourth hole. He’s got a long way to go, but he’s on par to get to the 18th hole.”
It’s not easy to win six NBA championships or reach all of other Michael Jordan statistical numbers. But what would be harder would be to match the cultural impact of Jordan. Jordan has become a legend, an icon, and to reach that status would take more than simply winning more rings.
But the simple fact is we love to debate LeBron’s legacy when it is too early to know what it will be.
