Comparing LeBron James' Historic 2012 Season with Michael Jordan's 1992 Campaign

Perhaps there is no greater compliment to LeBron James' 2012 season than the simple fact that his historic year is drawing comparisons to the magical 1992 campaign by His Airness, Michael Jordan.

Within these seasons, both players captured an NBA MVP award, an NBA championship and an Olympic gold medal.

To call these years special would be akin to calling Babe Ruth a solid hitter or Red Auerbach a good coach.

These were two of the most impressive seasons ever enjoyed on a basketball court.

Seemingly seconds after the Olympic gold was draped around James' neck, though, the comparisons (er...arguments) commenced over which season was more impressive.

Needless to say, this is a loaded argument with strong, opinionated voices coming from both sides.

This in-depth comparison probably won't sway your opinion from one player to the other (more than likely, you already love or hate both of these megastars), but it will allow for a closer examination of just what it was that these two accomplished.
