I'm not selectively pulling stats out. These are the same objective stats that show MJ to be the greatest that's ever played the game (and yet LeBron is still right there with him).

Also, win shares take into account multiple factors and the entirety of a player's contribution on the court. It's not exactly like cherry picking a game winner or PPG stat.

It absolutely makes a difference because LeBron had a 3 year head start on MJ. Statistically that matters. Like I said, LeBron may be further along now at 28 than MJ was, but that's not even what matters.
It's the only thing that matters if you're talking about comparing LeBron and Michael Jordan (because it's absurd to do it any other way, MJ's career overall obviously is better than LeBron's is to this point). LeBron is AHEAD of where MJ was as a pro at the same age. Only time will tell whether LeBron can match the 2nd half of MJ's ridiculous career, but if there's anybody that's going to do it, it will be him.
