Sorry, but if I may suggest the slightest edit on this part of your otherwise solid analysis of the Jordan-Lebron debate…

NOT ONE SINGLE TEAM THAT JORDAN BEAT IN THE FINALS COULD CARRY THE JOCKSTRAPS OF THE ALL-TIME TEAMS YOU LISTED.

The Suns, Sonics and Jazz can not be mentioned in the same breath as those historic teams. You might as well as say that Abdul-Jabber, Magic, Bird, Chamberlin, Duncan, Kobe, West, Robertson, Olajuwon, Shaq, Moses Malone, Havlicek, and Baylor are on the same level as Kemba Walker because they all played in the All-Star game.

Jordan beat good teams that had either only one or two HOF players, but not one player in the top 15 of Simmons’ basketball pyramid:

93 Suns: HOF Barkley (19), Kevin Johnson (93), Chambers (96)

On the other hand, Lebron James played far better teams:

07 Spurs: HOF Duncan (7), Horry (84), Ginobli, Parker and Finley
