Jordan has more championships than LeBron over the course of 15 years. LeBron will play another playoff series this year, so in a short while his playoff total will match that of His Airness. It is important to note, however, that LeBron missed the playoffs in his first two seasons while in prime athletic shape, while Jordan missed the playoffs in his last two seasons after suffering an injury that derailed his first season for the Washington Wizards, who were one of the worst teams in the league.

Jordan's 15 seasons are spread out over 19 years, as he retired from the game twice. His first retirement in 1993 deprived fans of 2 years of peak Jordan, which would arguably give him another NBA title or two. Thus, the title count and the season count for Jordan would probably be higher if not for his ill-timed decision to leave the sport of basketball.

LeBron will definitely play more seasons than Jordan and probably beat him in terms of longevity. But his peak years do not face up to Jordan's who won 6 titles in 8 seasons.
