    It's silly for anyone to compare Kobe or Lebron with Jordan. Just asking a question like this tells me how little people know about Jordan. I can go as far as saying Jordan is better than Kobe and Lebron COMBINED! Here are my top 10 reasons:

    1. rings/nba finals mvp

    jordan = 6/6

    kobe/lebron = 6/3

    winner: jordan

    2. nba mvp

    jordan = 5

    kobe/lebron = 4

    winner: jordan

    3. best 2 season records (# of wins)

    jordan = 72,69

    kobe/lebron = 67,66

    winner: jordan

    4. olympic gold medals

    jordan = 2/2 = 100%

    kobe/lebron = 2/3 = 66%

    winner: jordan

    5. less help

    jordan = pippen, rodman

    kobe/lebron = shaq, malone, payton, rodman, bynum, gasol, bosh, wade

    winner: jordan

    6. scoring titles

    jordan = 10

    kobe/lebron = 3

    winner: jordan

    7. offense (fg%, 3pt%, ft%, ppg, orb, ast, tov)

    jordan = 54%, 50%, 86%, 37, 2.0, 8.0, 3.6

    kobe/lebron = 53%, 38%, 87%, 35, 1.8, 8.6, 4.1

    winner: jordan (5-2)

    8. defense (drb, stl, blk)

    jordan = 6.2, 3.2, 1.6

    kobe/lebron = 6.5, 2.2, 1.1

    winner: jordan (2-1)

    9. all-around (ppg, trb, ast, stl, blk)

    jordan = 37, 8, 8.0, 3.2, 1.6

    kobe/lebron = 35, 7.9, 8.6, 2.2, 1.1

    winner: jordan (4-1)

    10. ncaa titles

    jordan = 1

    kobe/lebron = 0

    winner: jordan
