We as basketball fans are always tempted to compare and contrast the greatest players to ever play the game.
LeBron James has been deemed the next Michael Jordan since he came into the league.
That's what happens when you are the highest touted star ever coming straight out of high school, choose to wear number 23, and are nicknamed the "Chosen One."
Well, LeBron has not disappointed thus far and is now arguably the best player in the league.
But as we reach what is likely the halfway point of LeBron's career, more people than ever are questioning how he compares to Michael Jordan.
One of the greatest coaches of all time (in any sport), Phil Jackson, decided to weigh in on the topic recently and I'm here to tell you why he was dead right about LeBron's potential to equal Jordan.
