Michael Jordan vs. Wilt Chamberlain: The Real Comparison

Are you tired of Jordan fans bringing up stats as proof that Michael Jordan is hands down the greatest player ever?

So am I.  The "haterade" seems to be flowing so freely, I thought I'd take a sip or two myself.

Seriously, why is it not good enough to let great players be great?  Why do Jordan's fans feel the need to protect his legacy?  If the results were so "hands down" in Jordan's favor, there would be no need for the Jordan masses to arm up for battle as this era's players elevate through the ranks of the NBA's greatest players.

Most Jordan fans will parade stats like points per game, rebounds, field goal percentage, etc as the end all and be all of the conversation of the greatest player ever.  If stats are their greatest defense, I will make it their greatest weakness......

I will look at each player's five best seasons in several statistical categories. 

In doing so, I will demonstrate why the idea that Jordan is the greatest basketball player ever without question is false, with the same method that others will use to prove that he is.

Wilt Chamberlain vs. Michael Jordan.

Without further ado...I give you the comparison of the stats between two of the most dominant figures in the history of the sport
