LeBron shuts down Jordan comparisons for good

Ever since James was dunking on fellow teenagers, pundits have been linking the superstar to Jordan, but it may not be an apt comparison after all.

James, speaking ahead of Thursday's game against the Boston Celtics, poured water on the hype linking him to the great Bulls legend who won six NBA championships.

Wade:LeBron won't top Michael Jordan's legacy

"It's not possible," Wade told ESPN .

Wade was speaking about their respective legacies, which are subjective by nature.

Wade gave his response while laughing, but his point is pretty clear—there is no topping MJ. He said the best James can do is tie it, but even then he has a long way to go.

"They're both on the golf course," Wade said, using an analogy.

Michael Jordan in court for trial on his brand value

Tuesday's trial in Chicago federal court stems from a lawsuit the six-time NBA champion brought against a grocery-store chain for the unauthorized use his name and persona in an ad.

The 52-year-old is expected to testify. He'll likely discuss why he tightly controls his image and why he believes the now-defunct Dominick's Finer Foods undermined it.

A judge previously found Dominick's invoked Jordan's identity without permission. The only unresolved issue is damages.
