Wanna See a Wild LeBron and Jordan Comparison?

Only two guys had a value over replacement player of greater than 10 -- 24 and 25 year old Jordan and 24 and 25 year old LeBron.  Pretty wild.

The stats folks say take this VORP and multiply by 2.7 to get Wins Over Replacement.  That means that replacing either guy with an average player would have made the team 27 to 30 wins worse.  So you go from 60-22 to 30-52.
