VORP. Value Over Replacement. LeBron and MJ had an equal peak during a championship season at 9.8, but LeBronís career VORP is in a whole different ballpark. LeBron has more value. He is better..

All those points and how many rings??

So he's doing something wrong

Like a boxer that leads everyone in punches thrown but doesn't connect enough, or a guy that has sex a lot but rarely pleases

Ultimately, his ball-dominance prevented his team from playing a brand that can win frequently.. yeah, I know.. f'kin loser, 3/9 bum

80% of curry's threes are either "open" (4-6 feet from closest defender), or "wide open" (6+ feet) - you can't get any easier than that...

how about packing the paint with defenders while having a shortened 3pt line?

Reduced spacing more than it already was

Notice that league ORtg cratered the year they shortened that line

So MJ would be right in line

But obviously they'd guard him like everyone else - after his first record-breaking half and famous .. that's a wrap - he'd be the new Curry, but a 6'6" goat athlete/assassin version
