$50 bet with Rebels10 - Best of 3 Egg Bowls
**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
IT doesn't matter how big you are it matters how mentally tough you are, if your 68 and 260 but have the mentality of a 16 year old emo kid it doesnt matter. It's the same reason why he got manhandled by JAson Kidd and sean marion in the Finals..
Look man I'm not a big LeBron fan myself but he definitely didn't look like a "16 year old emo kid" when he torched my Celtics in game 6 of the ECF last year. Those days seem behind him. Hes stepped up in the big moments constantly the last 2 years.
Wilt Chamberlain>Larry Bird>Harold Miner > Michael Jeffrey Jordan
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
I will admit he did play great in that game but it doesn't take away all those games he dissapeared in the clutch for cleveland and year one with Miami..
I've heard some ridiculous, otherworldly stuff said about Jordan. Some people act like he was a god. They need to give it a rest.
He was a great player but lets keep some perspective

Ok here's perspective. He's widely considered by fans, basketball personalities and basketball historians as the greatest to ever lace them up. There's a reason for that and with all the top 50 all time players that he played against, that's saying a lot. Honestly, watching Jordan in his prime is how people who watched Babe Ruth must have felt.
Just as telling to me is that all those top 50 guys you mentioned (Olajuwon, Ewing, Barkley, Malone, Stockton, Miller, Drexler) all never won a ring whie Jordan was in the league. In fact most of those guys make up the list of greatest players to never win a championship
He wasn't just a great players, he was the best of all time. He should be treated like a basketball god because he was that good.
Olajuwon got a ring while Jordan was retired but your point holds true.

This is what I'm talking about. I haven't said one thing bad about Jordan, but at even the slightest suggestion that he didn't walk on water and Jordan boys come out of the woodwork to lynch you.
Carry on, I've given up trying to break up the circle jerk.
He also got one while Jordan was active.
By active you mean? The 17 games he played in 95?
Well he participated and lost in the playoffs. He averaged 39 mpg and 27 ppg, which are pretty damn close to career averages, so it's not like he was playing on a bum knee or something.
Problem is believing how good someone is when you never did get to see them live. Its like people of our age thinking that athletes in last generation arent as good because they are bigger and stronger. Unless you saw Jordan play in his era you dont realize how dominating he truly was. Most of these kids now probably think Jordan just made a pair of gym shoes.
1 more minute per game, 3 less points, and shot 8% worse from the field....Nowhere close to career averages.
Averaged 31 ppg in the playoffs, including some 40+ point games. Missed several clutch shots that could have closed out games against the Magic.
Jordan failed, its ok to admit it. He is a human.
Sorry video is in Russian or whatever, but there are no English versions that I can see
I know he's human. I was just pointing out that your last post was not correct.
We know you like Lebron so Jordan pumping pisses you off
It really does. The Jordan stuff is way over the top
That's why I justified it by saying while Jordan was in the league and most of them didn't have a ring at all. And 95 doesnt count.
If Lebron had Jordan's mental makeup, he'd end his career as the GOAT. He'll even if he had Kobe's. As it is, he will go down as a top 10 player barring injury.
You seen him the last two years? He's a different player than he was in 2009.
Players mature. Jordan wasn't a champion at age 25 either. It takes time and suffering heartbreak to learn how to win.
He's improved leaps and bounds. But fair or not fair, he lost his chance at GOAT when he left Cleveland to team up and win a title. He can't overcome that.
lebron is better...and u know it
Well considering that Kobe at age 18 once scored 36 on Jordan and Pippen, it wouldn't be impossible. Highly unlucky, but ya never know.
