3. Better Shooter
As we already discussed, Jordan scored more than James. Furthermore, he was more accurate than his younger rival. Their records in the Finals speak for themselves. Jordan never shot under 40 percent, but James did so on two occasions. Meanwhile, Jordan also shot over 50 percent in three of his six finals. James only managed this in two Finals. In short, the difference is clear.
Also, Jordan’s jump shot was one of his most useful skills. It’s something that James definitely doesn’t use as effectively. When defenses try and crowd him out, he occasionally struggles. But Jordan batted them off with utter contempt. Sure, James has an excellent record in the regular season. But he suffers a decline when it comes to postseason statistics.
