Titles: 2 vs 0
Yep, still advantage Jordan. And if you included his steals and blocks averages over those same 8 years, you'd see a bigger disparity as those numbers decreased after he went 30( same with scoring averages). I'm pretty sure Jordan averaged higher than 2.3 steals and .8 blocks his first 8 seasons.

Micheal did not shoot from the perimeter like LeBron and was much more stoppable. He also was not as good on defense.

Advantage LeBron.

He shot from the perimeter but they were higher percentage shots. He shot 15 footer instead of longer jump shots and would shoot from the baseline a lot.

LOL.... now I know you're trolling. Lebron James is NOT a better, more consistent shooter than Jordan in his prime. Defensively, Jordan is a better ball thief, man to man defender, and no worse as a shotblocker.

Advantage Jordan.

Your reasons for hating him was because he excelled in most aspects of the game, at an extremely high level?

Cool story.

My mom considered putting me in a home because of the way I carried on after MJ would conme back and beat the teams I liked. It involved a lot of crying throwing remote controls out of windows, and kicking holes through doors.
