Default Why do Jordan stans use

Seasons/ Mileage when it comes to LeBron and Age when it comes to Kobe?

You've got it the other way around.

It's James and Bryant stans who make it about age, not Jordan stans. They've actually consistently brought up seasons in comparisons.

Jordan stans treat his stats like a buffet. They only select what fits on their plates

And only jordan fans do that, and no other player stans.
Except Bonzi Wells supporters.

TBH stans of most players are guilty of this, that's part of what separates them from the rest of the fans of their favorite guy.

I honestly don't know what you're referring too.

But I'm assuming you're trying to make an excuse for something somehow.

This is how arguments usually go:

Kobe/Bron are the youngest to __________

or

By Kobe/Bron's *th season they achieved _____ over MJ.



Does one have to be a "stan" to use context in these occasions?

And here's where you guys (and honestly even us MJ fans can be at times) are hypocrites….

You guys will then go ahead and use their age as a crutch whenever it isn't in your favor. You guys use it as an excuse (Kobe fans moreso) for their shortcomings, yet use it as a trump card when it benefits you guys.

Because the age argument represents abilities of what a player can do on the court. Or recovery. That's what makes it a different issue. (Kobe Stan comparison argument)

The amount of SEASONS ones played is the opportunity to stack hardware or not stack hardware. Going to college shouldn't count against someone who gets more pro level experience sooner, at their own choice. (LeBron comparison argument)

The reason we use both is because Jordan fans are SANE and rationale. We don't tear anyone down to prop up our guy. The facts speak for themselves. We just use logic and intelligence for the comparisons. LeBron and Kobe stans cherry pick either the age / mileage or seasons argument to prop their guy up to MJ.
