You think because LBJ has made more 3's than Mike playing in an era that heavily prioritizes the 3 makes him a better shooter? LMAO. As I said numerous times before in this thread LBJ is a below avg 3-pt shooter relative to the era that he plays in. Mike was an avg 3-pt shooter relative to his era, where he only attempted 1.7 3's a game. Let me ask you though since you know so much about LBJ what does he shoot outside of 3ft from the basket but inside the arc? Then compare that % to what Mike shot, and then you'll quickly realize who was the better shooter. Shooting doesn't just mean 3-pt shooting, or shooting inside of 3-ft from the basket. You also have to look at FT shooting & mid range shooting too. The majority of LBJ's shots are inside of 3-ft from the basket which heavily skews his shooting %. Thats significant because he's playing in an era that's as soft as Charmin, despite being 6.8', 260. And no, I didn't forget that Pippen was a great defender. But did you forget that Jordan won DPOY, & was a 9-time 1st team all-defensive team selection, even at age 35? When was LBJ's last all defensive team selection? But let me guess his versatility on Defense still makes him a better defender than Mike right? LMAOWhat are you basing him being a worse shooter on exactly? Lebron has wayyyy more 3s and shoots a higher percentage overall and from 3(on much higher volume) but nice try. Is a better passer and rebounder period. It’s easy to be a better defender when you never have to guard the other teams #1 option, which Pippen always did. Or did you forget that?
I’ll give you FT though lol congrats.
