A fter LeBron James became the first player to score at least 30 points and shoot over 60 percent in six consecutive games Tuesday, he let everyone know he’s no Michael Jordan .

But that didn’t mean he was playing second fiddle. Instead, James laid claim to his own legacy.

On Wednesday, James tweeted,
“I’m not MJ. I’m LJ.”

This week, the MJ-LJ comparisons have begun again with Jordan turning 50 on Sunday.

For years, Jordan was generally recognized as the greatest player ever. But in recent years,

Scottie Pippen and Phil Jackson have said James could end up surpassing Jordan.

Fortunately for MJ, another MJ had his back Wednesday. Magic Johnson tweeted, “Easy answer MJ all day, every day! #MJvsLeBron”
