It seems like the comparisons between Michael Jordan and LeBron James will never end. The two have often been compared in the context of "Who's the greatest of all time?" and many believe that with his most recent loss in the NBA Finals, LeBron is no longer in the conversation. The Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors in this year's NBA Finals, and there's nothing really to complain about LeBron James' performance in the Finals.

He was the best player on the court throughout the five games, and he became the first player in NBA history to average a triple-double in the Finals. James finished the series with averages of 33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 10.0 assists per game and even with performances like that, his Cavaliers managed to win just one game.

Horry defends LeBron

The latest NBA legend to comment on LeBron's legacy and the comparison between him and Jordan is Robert Horry. Horry is a seven-time NBA champion and obviously, he knows basketball and knows what he's talking about. Throughout his career, Horry made some of the most clutch shots in league history, and he's often referred to as "Big Shot Rob". Horry won championships playing for the Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Lakers. Just a few days ago, a TMZ reporter met Horry and asked him if Horry thinks LeBron needs to win more rings than Jordan in order to surpass him. Horry replied, "no, because that doesn't mean anything."

Horry was also asked about LeBron's 3-5 Finals record, versus Jordan's 6-0 record in the Finals.

He responded by saying, "that don't mean anything. You know, that's why it's a team sport."

The seven-time NBA champion also reflected on Kevin Durant winning his first championship and said the only thing that matters is that he (Durant) won it. "A ring is a ring." said Horry.

Does Horry have a point?

Many would say Robert Horry has a point and LeBron doesn't need to win more rings than Jordan to surpass him as the greatest of all time.

In fact, LeBron has already passed Jordan in almost every statistical category, except in the number of championships won. James has three rings, Jordan has six. While LeBron still has a lot of basketball in front him, he has already played 14 seasons in the league and has played more minutes total than Michael Jordan. LeBron will turn 33 in December, and while he still looks as and is the best basketball player in the world, one thing is for sure - father time is undefeated.
