11. Killer Instinct
Proponents of James” all-time great status say he is an incredible team player. They point out that Jordan was arrogant and selfish on the court. Both of these statements are true but context is important. In clutch situations, Jordan was much more reliable than James. Jordan took responsibility and made it count when James deferred to a teammate.
The other thing is that James isn’t as humble as these fans say. He once infamously claimed to be the best in the world before a dreadful display against the Warriors. Jordan never labeled himself as the best. But he made it clear that he was with his actions on the court. Both of these men were brilliant, but Jordan’s leadership and killer instinct put him in a different class.
