Context says that LeBron's opposition in the last 4 finals has been a team that was 48-13 vs the West in the playoffs over those years. That's a 65 win pace over 82 games, in the PLAYOFFS in a very good western conference.
The fact that LeBron is 7-15 against this team over 4 finals, despite playing with objectively awful support in two of them, is not an inferior accomplishment to Jordan, because Jordan never played a team remotely close to the warriors.
Judge them on their performance, not their respective finals records. I grew up watching peak Jordan. I agree he was better. But I don't think he would be 6/6 in the 2010s. And I think lebron is the 2nd best player I've ever seen.
