Not sure what's hard to understand Mj is the focal point of his offense so obviously he cant fulfill his maximum potential on defesne but if Mj was just a role player on offesne he would shut down any 1..
Your argument relies too much on false assumptions. I'm not buying. I only look at results.
Defensively, Moncrief is the G.O.A.T. at his position.

9x NBA first team defender, Defensive player of the year; highest vertical in NBA history, one of the quickest guards in history but ya sidney moncrief is a better defender. lmaooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Lol. You sound like a real Jordan-jocker. Let me guess: You have all his shoes, right? You have MJ posters plastered all over your bedroom wall? Yeah, I know people like you. You can't think for yourself. You have ESPN form your opinions.
"lmaooooooooooooooo." Really? What are you, 13?
Go back to watching ESPN, kid.

ESpn WTF no its called any person with an active brain believes that Jordan is a better defender than your boy Moncrief who like i said does nothing better than Jordan defensively, quicker(hell no), bigger ( hell no), taller(hell no), jump higher( not a snowball's chance in hell), WTf else is there?
C: Moses Malone/Dream
***Dream can play the 4 or 5..... He'd be on my 1st team at one or the other.

Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon for the younger posters here. Best low post moves in NBA History , #1 All-Time Shot Block Leader, top 10 in All-Time Steals (no other centers in top 40).
****Defense is 50% of the game.****
Best Center There Was N Wat Yall Think Bout Da Song

the reason hakeem is the 1 all-time shot blocker is b/c blocks weren't considered a category when Bill played or he would of easily had the record..
I can agree with that but Hakeem also played against
-Kareem & Moses Malone....towards the end of the career
-Patrick Ewing, David Robinson, Mutumbo, Shaq, & Zo Mourning during their prime
Dream dominated them all.
The mid 1980s-mid/late 1990s was a period of dominant centers. Bill Russell didn't play against the same size & caliber of players. Who did Russell dominate? The [seemingly] whole Celtics squad from that era is in the Hall of Fame.

I remember the Bulls and Pistons fighting, Rick Mahorn beat the shit out of Doug Collins LOL!!!!
I just go by careers b/c obviously a player in the 60's isn't going to be as good as some 1 in today's game, Russell is 6 9, lebron is around 6-9
Where's teh love for Wilt the Stilt, dude scored over 100 pts in a game and screwed 1000's of dames. The guy was a pure baller.
he's prolly in my first team

Wilt and Russell, who needs to be in this equation as well, are the only players to ever have 50 or more rebounds in 1 game. Shorter than Wilt but much, much, faster, Russell averaged 22.5 rebounds p /game for 13 years. He had 11 NBA championships, 5 MVP awards, 11 times an All Star. He could have scored twice what he did but that wasn't his role on the Celtics. Throw in 2 NCAA Championships and no other athlete in any league,or in any sport can claim that many championships in a career.
Bill Simmons warped my mind about Wilt in Book of Basketball.
i believe wilt bedded 20,000 ladies
What was his mention of him? I'm curious.
i just realized how you love to throw the lebron hater all around when clearly you are a lebron lover. take out that michican picture and you can fit in another photo of LBJ in you sig
Ego maniac, cared more about stats than winning, very selfish, bad teammate, guys didn't like playing with him.
Essentially shitting on him, and saying Bill Russell was much better.
Can never really listen to anything Simmons says about the Celtics, or anything about one of their rivals. Guy is a Celtics homer beyond belief, and he wears his emotions on his sleeve. It's part of what makes him good, but sometimes it's annoying.
These days essentially ignore anything BS says about the Celts, Lakers, or the Heat.
Shyed away from the clutch, his coach hated him, his numbers dipped considerably in the playoffs, his reason for why MJ is the best player of all-time is pure genius.
The hate is incredibly strong with Lebron's group of haters. Never seen a player who is so undervalued just because people don't like how he bolted the Cavs.
And honestly who the f cares? It's Cleveland.
Also ESPN asked to put his decision on the TV, it wasn't his idea. Of course, they roasted him for it afterwards. .
The parade was a bit much, but hey it turned out to be legit. 2 straight finals appearances and very likely to be a third this year. Why wouldn't they be celebrating?
im not positive but im pretty sure the money earned from "the decision" was donated to charity... like over 5 million dollars
