Idiotic sports take of the moment: "Well MJ never got swept in the Finals"

Yeah, well MJ also never faced arguably the best team ever either. The talent is nice, but the Warriors also play the right way: selfless and focused on a team concept. Look at Lebron's squad, this team had no business sniffing the finals and they got exposed; Houston would've beaten this team in 5. Lebron got them there. Using the "MJ never got swept in the Finals" defense to somehow prove that Jordan > Lebron is a bullshit argument.

Here's Lebron's biggest failure.
But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity. - Martin Luther King, Jr

When someone says MJ never got swept in the finals, I dismiss them immediately. Was this a one man team? Lebron was beaten all by himself? He dropped a career number of buckets one game and lost, you know, so he sucks.
If I engage these folks at all, I simply ask, what sports did you play? Not counting kickball.
The answer is always the same, if they are brave enough to answer at all.
