Fvck, it's not just about offensive/defensive stats.
Early on, Jordan had moved past that, and was able to dictate a game's tempo.
The NBA has a a ****load of on-paper talent come in and retire without rings.
Lebron's young and who knows, he may surpass MJ, but to declare at this point
that he's superior seems unfounded. ****, it would have been just AS unfounded
to call MJ the greatest ballhandler when HE was that young.
Too early to say, and trotting out stats is a crutch.
The game isn't played for stats, it's played for wins.
