LeBron is No MJ

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - LeBron James

changed his jersey number, won an NBA championship and still gets inevitably

compared to Michael Jordan at nearly every opportunity.

With James producing at a record-setting

clip that no one in league history had reached, just as Jordan's 50th birthday

approaches this weekend, classifying James' place in the league couldn't be a

hotter topic.

James wants no part of it, posting on

Twitter that he's "not MJ." And his peers say it's time to back off

all the comparisons.

Three-time scoring champion Kevin Durant

said Thursday that it's "unreal" what James has done "but it's

kind of hard to compare anybody to Michael Jordan."

Miami

Heat teammate Dwyane Wade, who grew up in Chicago watching Jordan on TV, says

quite simply, "There will never be another Michael Jordan."
