That's what Lebron aka LeNeededAFukkingDreamTeam did from 2007-15.

interesting, thanks. the jordan wins/james wins part is pretty petty, though.

You got the ages wrong.

Align LeBron's seasons to Jordan's one year younger. So LeBron age 30 with Jordan age 29 for example. Thats 49 days between them rather than 316.

Also puts LeBron well in front by this measure.

year by year can be pretty easily manipulated with just a yr adjustment. I think comparing their best years in order is a lot better. The important part is quantifying how much better someone was one year however and figuring out how to rank a player's years in order

what about MJ sweeping those college basketball player of the year awards from Naismith, Wooden, Associated Press etc at age 20?

seems like a better achievement than just being a rookie missing the playoffs

It already favors LeBron. His suggestion would be a more accurate comparison.

I put by this measure in italics. Just rolling with the thread, not claiming this is any kind of definitive measure.

Jordan gets wins at 38-39 for being in the NBA. That evens out. The point is that as they advanced in age, LeBron had more years where he advanced farther than Jordan did.

Nicely done, OP.

Lebron is already ahead of MJ, and he's not even done playing.
