    Watch all the Jordan nut huggers come out of the woodwork to defend their man when Lebron lifts that trophy at the end of October.
    Skip: Michael Jordan is the greatest. He never would’ve gotten Corona to begin with. He would’ve found a way to not get the season interrupted and just willed his teammates healthy during this pandemic. I don’t know. H just would’ve Found (slam on table) A (slam on table) Way (slam on table).

    Stephen A: First of all let me just preface this by saying that I believe Lebron James is an all time talent. He’s an all time player. And he had an all time season. BUT. BUT. By no means, by no stretch of the imagination, no inclination is this season, THIS SEASON, a reason why the debate of Lebron Vs Michael Jordan should be reopened. Micheal never had his season interrupted. Micheal never had other teams players dropping out bc of a serious virus or illness or something of that nature. In fact, every star that Michael Jordan ever faced was 100% healthy and 100% in their prime. So if you’re asking me if this 4th ring opens up the door to Lebron claiming the GOAT status from Michael Jordan, my answer is resolutely no.

    It's an asterisk, because it wasn't an 82 game season. But unlike in 1999, it is from something beyond their control (the Rona). But an asterisk nonetheless.

    99 was in their control?

    Yes. Lockout 50-game season happened because millionaire players and billionaire owners couldn't agree on a new CBA. That is very different from suspending part of this season due to COVID-19.

    This season and 99 season are hardly comparable. Even before the suspended season most teams played over 60 games which is more than 99 season already.

    Both championships get an asterisk, but 99's is bigger due to less games.

    It sounds pretty uncontrollable to me for 99. Who had control then? The billionaires or the millionaires?

    In 1999 season, Uncontrollable to me means they never come to an agreement and just cancel the entire season (or seasons) until they hammer out an agreement. That didn't happen. Both were losing money, a little give here, a little take there, then finally, to salvage the season they settled on 50 games. This could have been avoided.

    The Rona? Couldn't be avoided (but the spread shouldn't be as bad but that's another story). The players and owners are doing everything they can to resume their season, but unlike a CBA, they have NO control over the Rona.

    You equating the two is puzzling to me. To only thing I agree with is the asterisk. The reasons why both get them could not be further polar opposite.

    Did I equal the two?

    Also, by your rationale could they not have just cancelled this season? That’s controllable by your definition.

    Yes, you did by implying that owners and players have control with the Rona. Their solution is to play in a bubble. That's not control. We know groupies will be in and out of that bubble. And who knows where they've been. That's hardly being in control.

    Also, by your rationale could they not have just cancelled this season? Thatís controllable by your definition.
    As much as I hate to admit it, yes, they should cancel the season. NFL too. The Rona is gonna have a 2nd wave that I believe will be worse than the 1st. What's the use of getting our favorite players exposed before this dumbass country gets it's together and slow down this virus? Lesser countries have done it, but we have not. I have a theory on why, but that's another story.

    MLB and Soccer should play though. Nobody gives a about them

    So they should be the same asterisk because the league could’ve and should’ve cancelled the season but didn’t.

    Pop hid Jim from Shaq until Shaq was neutered in the 4th quarter. And for good reason:

    Paulito salivating at a chance to win the biggest ing asterisk in sports history.

    LeBron not only got a mini-offseason in, but also had plenty of time to go thru a juice cycle. Not that Adam Silver would ever test him, but still...

    That’s why he’s one of the greatest second bananas ever. It’s between him, magic, mchale and Pippen.

    Spurs 1999 season = 50 games
    Lakers 2020 season = 71 games

    How you figure son? Spurs played in a dome. Lakers have to play in a ballroom inside a bubble.
