LeBron plays down talk of 'next Jordan'

Related

Michael Jordan's 50th birthday celebrations have renewed talk about his heir.

Reigning NBA MVP LeBron James is the latest player to be dubbed the next Jordan, since arguably the greatest basketball player of all time left the NBA a decade ago.

While used to the comparisons, James says he's not MJ, he's LJ.

"Mike is Mike and a man can only be himself. I can't be Mike, I don't want to be Mike. I am who I am."

Michael Jordan's 50th falls on the day of the 62nd NBA All-Star game.

Jordan was a 14-time all-star and won the game's most valuable player award three times.
