If Jordan didn't play for Wizards, he would be career 50% shooter
 
If Jordan never came back to play for the Wizards, he would be a career 50% shooter. Take that in mind.

Highest career PPG in history of NBA + over 50% career FG + being a guard + playing at the toughest defensive in NBA history = GOAT being GOAT.

If Chamberlain had retired after his knee injury in 1969 (beginning of his 11th season) he would have left the game with a 34.4 ppg, 24.3 rpg, .530 FG% (in leagues that averaged about a .440 FG% over that span.)

toughest defensive era, when holding a team to 110 points was considered elite defense.

And he missed a few early prime seasons as well, due to not having the right to play in the NBA as a non-graduate, leading him to even play one season with the Globetrotters. Which means that his career totals could still be as high as his actual ones and his averages could also be about as high as the ones you mentioned at the same time. Plus a few more scoring titles in a row (for a possible total of like 10 in a row). GOAT being GOAT.

virtually every one of my older hoops friends believes to this day Jordan came out of retirement to pass Chamberlain on the all time scoring list. Because he couldn't outscore the greatest scorer of his own era.

And it wouldn't change anything about his legacy.

If he did not play in the weakest defensive era, he would've been a sub 50% career shooter.

you don't think late '80s - '90s were the toughest defensive era?

the worst defensive era maybe. Serious? Now is by far the best defensive era, and it started around 2000
