35 year old Jordan couldn't do what 35 year old Lebron did though. That version of Jordan relied a lot on mid range jumpers and couldn't playmake or rebound like Lebron.
What are you talking about? Lebron would never come even remotely close to the scoring load Jordan had on that team. Scoring 30% of his team's points. Lebron is at 23%.... Lebron would have to average 34 points per game to have similar scoring impact on his team... 8 points more he is currently averaging... And mind you, Jordan played in era of significantly harder time to score because defenses allowed to be played. Jordan had that year bigger usage than lebron EVER has had.... Talk about carrying a team... Gimme a break. If it would be about playmaking and rebounds, Westbrook stomps on both of them....
What does Russell Westbrook have to do with anything?
Lebron James could obviously average 34 points per game if he arbitrarily needed to, you think Bradley Beal is a better scorer than Lebron James? Lebron is averaging 8 assist per game, it is not necessary for him to average that many points.
I don't know what you mean by usage. If you mean Michael Jordan was more productive in 1998 when he was past his prime than any year in Lebron James entire career then you might want to look over your facts. If you are talking about the USG stat that isn't measuring what you think it measures...someone who is a floor general and has the ball in their hand is certainly taking on a load and that isn't covered in USG.
