you think jordan wasnt a team player? theres nothing that ive ever heard about him that would suggest that. also theres no way you can win 6 championships without good team cohesiveness no matter if you have the best player to ever step on the floor or not. i know he cared about getting those rings for himself but i just have never thought of lebron as a "team player" at least not to the extent of jordan.
Lebron is a big team player. All of his teammates always seem to like him and he's always willing to pass them the ball even in big moments (more than Jordan ever was). And Jordan's teams were cohesive yes. But they were cohesive because they were terrified of Jordan. Jordan has a singular desire to win. That desire to win was only for himself though. Jordan was so great because he didn't like losing personally.
yeah no doubt. whatever criticisms LeBron gets, whether deserved or not, "selfishness" has never been and never should be one of them. he's unselfish as hell. and his teams almost always have good off-the-court chemistry. aside from some rumors of prima donna behavior during the olympics, i've never really heard a bad LeBron story in terms of him as a person or teammate.
as for Jordan, its been said (and he's alluded to it as well) that he was very different during the second stint after he'd done the Minor League Baseball thing and saw how hard those guys worked and how hard it was to make it without supreme natural gifts. but during the first stint, while he was always loved by the media and fans and generally was seen as a good guy, he was demanding, hyper-competitive (well, he still is), selfish at times (some would argue he needed to be), vindictive, etc.
and if lebron's behavior is going to be criticized, let's not forget michael saying he wouldn't play for the dreamteam unless isaiah was left off, and basically forced their hand on that.
