One more thing about this comment.
If I was to state that Matthew Hayden was a better batsman than Viv Richards, because Hayden had a higher average, then your comment about stats not being comparible cross-era would be valid. (Using the first example that came to mind, this is not meant to be a dig in any way at Hayden.)
However, Bradman doesn't average a few runs more than other greats who batted in less batsman friendly eras. Bradman's career accomplishments at both Test and First Class level, which I've highlighted above, are so far in front of anyone else in the history of the game that there's absolutely no convincing argument to be made against Bradman being far and away the greatest batsman of all time.
