There is some truth to the idea of it being difficult to compare different generations of sport, but to say that the stats are useless is a complete overstatement. In fact, they're really the only thing that allow us to compare different generations with any kind of accuracy (and again, without the nostalgia/mythologizing of the past).

But all he did was win, like MJ did. In fact neither of them lost a championship game like others have (Brady, Lebron or Kobe..)
MJ's Bulls teams lost six consecutive times in the playoffs before they finally won a championship. Remarkably similar to LeBron's teams.
