Is Labron better than MJ?

755172_630x354 I know that in Chicago, it's almost against our religion to even consider that any basketball player "before or since" is MJ's equal- let alone his superior. BUT- watching "King James" again knock out the Bulls this post season with his incredible display of doing everything, showing up again into the NBA finals this wk - ya gotta wonder!

His stats against Atlanta were off the charts! Scoring, rebounding, assists, defense, blocks-- guarding everybody, being "associate point guard ETC., is just remarkable. For someone his size-6ft 9, 270lbs to have such speed & quickness, agility & skill is unique.

I Don't know if he'll win as many titles as Michael, although he might, but his ability to make everybody around him better, & his outright overall basketball skills level makes this a good question---

What do you think?

    The Sports Doctor

    Born and raised in New York, I've practiced podiatry and sports medicine for over 30 years in the Aurora- Naperville area (almost BUT NOT QUITE LONG ENOUGH to lose my NY accent ). You can check that out for yourselves by listening to Sports Doctor Radio, on http://www.healthylife.net/ Join me live Wednesday's, 3-4 pm. CST. The Sports Doctor was formerly on WDCB 90.9 FM in Chicago for more than 20 years. The Sports Doctor is also read in newspaper columns including The Aurora Beacon News and the Naperville Sun. Also please 'like' my Facebook page, "Sports Doctor Radio" and follow me on Twitter @SportsDocRadio to keep in touch! Go to sportsdoctorradio.com to hear many past shows and read my many articles. My specialty in sports medicine is orthotic therapy, combined with specific training and strengthening of the feet and ankles. I've been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the best athletes in all sports including many of the Super Bowl Bears back in the 80's, tennis greats John McEnroe and Tracy Austin, and numerous Cubs and White Sox. A true highlight of my career was watching Naperville's hometown figure skater Evan Lysacek, who I first saw as a nine-year-old and put orthotics in his skates, win the 2010 Olympic Gold Medal for men's figure skating with his orthotics (updated of course!) still in his boots. These high performance youngsters still remain my passion. Another big interest of mine is the challenge of our countries greatest epidemic: childhood obesity.
