This is so incredibly stupid. Jordan's 14 and 15th season was coming off his second retirement where he hadn't played in the league for 3 years and was about to turn 39. He was an MVP candidate for the Wizards at the all-star break before he got injured and they had a monumental turnaround.Anyone who thinks MJ > Lebron stopped watching basketball in the 90's.
In MJs 14th and 15th NBA season he failed to make the playoffs in the East. The East was a horrendous conference then too.
In Lebrons 14th and 15th NBA season he took the Cavs to the NBA Finals. His 15th season was arguably one of the worst NBA finals rosters ever assembled and Lebron carried them anyway.
Jordan got bored with basketball and being the most famous person in the world. If it wasn't for his dad getting murdered and him getting bored/having Reinsdorf and Krause break up the Bulls you're looking at 10 championships for MJ.
If you're talking about this season for Lebron he's playing with another top 5 player in the NBA, no other current star in the league comes close to having that luxury.
