Lebron will be the next MJ. He is a born leader. You can tell by how he plays that this kid special. He stands out from every one.
Trust me, He will make the hall of fame. Next year he wont beable to get the the playoffs,though.

It would be impressive for Mello or Bron to be the next Magic, although I don't think either one has the height for it. Being the next Jordan is relatively " easy" by comparison. Kobe posts stats, moves, demeanor, and tongue waggles that are very Jordan-like.
There will always be comparisons to Jordan for guys, because Jordan was not as well rounded as Magic.

Magic was one in a lifetime, perhaps never again will we see a player at his level, comparable to him. We already have Kobe in comparing to Jordan, and Kobe came along a mere decade after Jordan's show kicked into high gear.

How have LeBron and Carmelo not shown the "heart" Magic had? He was a great player, but not perfect. And Kobe is not the next Jordan because he can't sell products like Jordan did. Jordan had the credibility that few guys have.

Marc...

What does selling products have to do with Kobe eclipsing Jordan in the eyes of b-ball fans in a discussion of greatest NBA players?

And Purple...

I believe Penny was suppossed to be the next Magic if I am not mistaken.

none of them are the next MJ or the next Magic. there isn't a next there is one. yes LeBron will be a great player and rank among the greats and IMO will be a Hall of Famer. but there isn't a next MJ or Magic there is only one of them.

Because Kobe's biggest downfall when you compare him to Jordan is he can't sell products or have the same affect that Jordan did. Sure, Kobe has been successful at endorsing products, but not nearly at the same level as Jordan. No other athlete has been on that level, ever, and my point is that is one of Jordan's biggest strengths, his marketability and broad appeal that has never been matched.

Kobe needs to win without Shaq. Yeah...yeah...yeah...MJ had Scottie, but MICHAEL was the leader and #1 man on that team. Kobe's 2nd dog in L.A. behind Shaq.

I should take back my comments about being the next Magic, Magic in my mind is the best player ever. He could do it all playing every position and a big game player.

i am tired of explaing why he will be the next Jordan.
Here are the reasons:
-heart
-intensity
-leadership
-skill
-shooting(will ge beter)
-height for a pg(he will end up as a pg)
-He seems like a guy that would go to the clubs(not like kobe) but still STAY OUT OF TRUBLE(unlike kobe)
-Teams invest off of him
-Products(nike... others to come) (will)inevest of him
..... and the list goes on.

I think he will be bigger than Jordan or Magic.

Everything is there for him to be the best ever.
Now we have to wait and see what he does with what he's got.

How about he's going to be the first LeBron? Has that thought even entered your mind?

THERE IS NO NEXT JORDAN, EVERY PLAYER IS GREAT IN HIS OWN WAY, THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER THOMAS, BIRD, WILT, RUSSELL. Humans, AS OF NOW, cannot clone.

I hope I get my point across which is, STOP SAYING (BLANK) IS GOING TO BE THE NEXT JORDAN!

ahhhh.... great point Aristides. Very true. Maybe this is still off of what your last post was trying to get across but, like i said he will be beter than jordan or magic. He will reach where no other basketball player has.

He has it all there. think he can take the amazing stuff he has and run with it.
