Mike Miller and James Jones are not exactly Bill Walton or DJ. Larry Bird had a rift with Mchale? Really now. Kobe Bryant never went to another team to chase rings. He stayed put with the Lakers and just let management have the problem of luring primetime players to the Lakers. I used to detest Kobe Bryant being a Celtic fan but I have grown to respect Bryant because he never left the Lakers and stayed with them through thick and thin. James bailed out on the Cavs and Heat when he thought that the situation was untenable. As for MJ, the Bulls went 57-25 during the year Jordan was in retirement and forced a Game 7 against the Knicks. That series could have gone either way. That's a knock on Jordan's legacy that hasn't been really talked about. The Bulls didn't need Jordan to be competitive.
I don't think the blogger hates Lechoke. He was just making a point why Larry is better than Lechoke. Yes, I idolize Bird and hate James. I won't deny that. The major reason of my hate for James is because he left the Cavs just to chase rings with two other All Stars. I used to respect him but after that move, I lost all my respect for him. In spite of my hate, I acknowledge that he is a freak athlete and a franchise player.
"Yes, I idolize Bird and hate James."
This is the reason why it is impossible for you to make an objective and unbiased comparison between the two players. The unnamed blog caters to your opinion thus you concur the every word uttered even if it fails to give credit to Lebron and exaggerating media gossips. Like I said if Lebron James was really a poor teammate and toxic in the locker rooms then Wade and Bosh would have never joined him in Miami and supporting cast and Wade would have never followed him to Cleveland.

Players should play his entire career for 1 team is old school mentality. Not everyone is fortunate to be drafted in a big market team like Boston and LA. If signing to another team and requesting for trade diminishes the greatness of a player then that is your own opinion. An opinion that coincidentally favors your idol Larry Bird. I would like to remind you that Shaq, Jabbar, Wilt signed or requested to be traded to another team which enabled them to win multiple championships. Does that diminish their greatness? Lebron James was not fortunate to have legendary Red Auerbach as his general manager nor any hall of fame teammates in his first Cavs so he took matters into his own hands. He won 2 championships with the Heat and went back to Cavaliers to win one more.
