Jordan towered over the NBA during his career, which ended in 2003 as a member of the Washington Wizards. According to wins above replacement — a player’s box score estimate of the points per 100 team possessions he contributes above a replacement-level player, converted to wins — Jordan was worth almost 344 wins over his career, including the playoffs. Other NBA greats like Magic Johnson (257 career WAR) and Larry Bird (256.8) didn’t come close. The next closest over the past 42 years has been Karl Malone (307.3) with Tim Duncan close behind with 291.9 career WAR. And when Jordan stepped aside, he merely passed the mantle to a legend in the making. Since 2003, LeBron James has emerged as the best player in the league — a player so good he might be better than Jordan.
