Someone said did????
Where did you live? Under a rock?
Let me remind you a bit
And that's only 1 % of everything. Read some articles or something.
And yes, I did buy into hype.
The thing is, like I said, I had little opportunity to watch him play, like a few games in 3 years.
And just from watching his stats, I saw a monster who at 22 averaged over 30 points and 7 assists.. At 21 he averaged 21 points and 7 assists..
So I thought to myself, MJ's scoring ability and Magic's passing ability?
You won't believe the things that people will believe if they don't in fact watch games.
Last 2 years I was 100 % sure that he was better than Kobe.
But when you actually watch games...blah..it's different.
Has very little grace. Doesn't make plays that make you go WOOOW.
Not that special, not gracious at all.
Doesn't mean that he's not a great player but when I watch him play I don't see the best player in the league. Sorry but no.
And last 2 years I thought he was the best.
