That is a simple question. It's also a pretty uninteresting one, because it ignores so much context. That is, the answer is easy but not very meaningful. If you want a better answer - a more meaningful answer - you can use adjusted stats.

1991 was quite different from 1999, and if you want to pretend that they're not different, that a point scored in 1991 means exactly the same with respect to a player's offensive ability as a point scored in 1999, you're free to do so. Just don't expect rational analysis to agree with you.
