Interestingly enough, it's against the same franchiseProblem with this guy's take, Swerb, is that it fudges the issue.If you're merely looking at this as LBJ, the all-world talent, who doesn't have much help around him struggling against a superior team--coincidentally, the same superior team--then you'll see a parallel. But if you remember how those Bulls/Pistons games went pre-91 and compare the way MJ dealt with the situation then to the way LBJ's dealing with it down, it all falls apart. The Jordan Rules weren't just about guarding him with 3-4 guys; they were also about hammering the shit out of the guy whenever he went to the basket. But while Scottie Pippen was wussing out with The Migraine and MJ was left to fend for himself, he kept going at them and kept going at them. And that tenacity and competitive spirit is what defined him as a basketball player.LBJ?Happy to go the Dirk route.
