Sorry, but I don't see how a behind-the-board shot - no matter how rare the demonstration may be - can be considered comparable to: a mastery of the fundamentals of the game; leadership on the court; tremendous energy; and incredible focus.
I`m saying neither that LeBron`s not great on the court, nor that he`s not "the next Michael Jordan" (I have no opinion on either point) but THIS SHOT does not qualify him as being the next MJ.
