You will almost never hear a bad word about LeBron James here, but come on Scottie. Take it easy a little here.
Under any overall statistical comparison, Michael was not only a better scorer, he was a better overall player. PER is higher, shooting percentage is higher, steals plus blocks is higher, and Jordan had won titles by his 8th year in the league -- which LeBron has not yet.
Even if you take Michael's ENTIRE career (including 2 years in Washington) and use all of the numbers, his stats are still better than LeBron's -- better PER in regular season and playoffs, better shooter, more steals plus blocks, bigger spread between offensive rating and defensive rating, better win shares and win shares per 48 in the playoff and the regular season.
I hold no ill will whatsoever toward LeBron -- he is my favorite NBA player. But he just is not quite the player Jordan was. He is probably statistically closer than anyone has ever been, but he just is not quite that player.
