Of course, but that's why comparing raw apg numbers is also unfair. They had different roles on their teams.
Pace or possession adjusted is not any better either doubly true when you compare two players from eras which are over 20 years apart. Pace does not affect superstars much in terms of scoring, it affects role players much more.
Jordan is a better scorer than LeBron I doubt anyone apart from some LeBron stans dispute that. LeBron provides a lot in other eras than MJ though.
The scoring edge is minimal. Lebron is more effiecient from 3 point land and way way more efficient near the basket.
