Perhaps the Michael Jordan versus LeBron James Greatest Of All Time debate is close to being settled.
In a poll of NBA fans taken by ESPN, it was a runaway for the retired Bulls superstar.
According to the results, 73% ranked Jordan above LeBron both on and off the court in all 17 categories.
And to account for a generational divide, the respondents were split evenly into two age groups: 18-34 and 35 and older, with Jordan leading 4-1 with the older crowd and preferred by nearly 2-to-1 with the younger audience.
