19. Better Scorer
Of course, this comes with the disclaimer that Jordan was a shooting guard and James is a small forward. But Jordan’s scoring record is insane compared to his counterparts. In 17 seasons, James has won just a single NBA scoring champion award. Meanwhile, Jordan had a remarkable 1o scoring titles to his name. His ability was insane, especially considering the level of competition in the league.
Their impact in the playoffs is also profoundly different. Jordan managed to average over 40 points per game in five playoff series, falling short in 1989. James never managed to achieve this throughout his many years in the league. It’s also worth mentioning that Jordan achieved all of this before the NBA changed the rules to make scoring much easier.
