LeBron Raymone James (born December 30, 1984 in Akron, Ohio) is an American professional basketball player who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). James, commonly nicknamed "King James," was highly promoted in the national media as a future NBA superstar while still a sophomore in high school at St. Vincent - St. Mary High School, and was named Ohio's "Mr. Basketball" three times. At the age of 18, he was selected with the first overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Cavaliers and signed a US$90 million shoe contract with Nike before his NBA debut. He has since set numerous youngest player records. During his first season, he received the NBA Rookie of the Year Award and in the following four seasons received All-NBA and All-Star honors. He has led the Cavaliers to consecutive playoff appearances in 2006, 2007, and 2008; in 2007, the team advanced to the Conference Finals for the first time since 1992 and the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.

lebron james is an unbeilievably talented basketball player. he is often compared to Michael Jordan, but in the wrong sense, a lot of people compare him to MJ because of the unbelievable dunks and shots that MJ hit, that is the wrong way to compare because there is no comparison, when and/or IF LeBron wins MORE THAN 6 NBA CHAMPIONSHIPS he has beaten MJ.
let time answer the questions, only LeBron James can decide if he's better than MJ

Lebron James is the 2nd greatest active player in the NBA today2010. He has and always will be a great player and my favorite. Most of the time he gets compared to Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. But he shouldn't because Michael Jordan is the Greatest player EVER!PAST Kobe Bryant is the Greatest Player right NOW.PRESENT And LeBron James will have his time to be the Greatest player.FUTURE So i would just wish everyone to stop comparing the three because its NO comparison needed. Kobe and Lebron are two different players, they make totally different decisions when it comes to playing basketball. But Michael Jordan is odviously Both of them mixed together and More. If you are a fan of basketball you wouldnt compare them because you know the difference between the three. So my last statement is that Please stop hating on these basketball players it doesn't help your life to hate. Please dont Compare these players there all different. Plus im a Michael and Lebron Fan. But i dont hate on Kobe because iKnow he's great but i Live on the East coast so i have to stay with my east cost teams. Meaning the Cavaliers, Knicks etc. Hope Everyone understands my point of view.
Lebron James, Kobe Bryant & ofcourse Michael Jordan are all the Greatest Basketball Playerss.
