- sons like a bunch of if' and but's....Those of us who actually watched MJ's whole career actually know his place.
- He was the greatest player of the 90's....and probably the greatest player at getting his own shot from anywhere he wanted.
was he the greatest scorer ever? - NO
was he the greatest shooter ever? - NO
was he the greatest defensive player ever? - NO
was he the greatest winner ever ever? - NO ( Not even close actually)
was he the most impactful player ever? - NO ( he actually impacted his teams win/loss column less then any of the top 10 players alltime)
was he the greatest dunker ever? - NO
was he the geratest passer ever? - NO
was he one of the most exciting players ever? - absolutley...and he moved alot of shoes.
but your tired rants about "MJ was the bestest GOAT ...he left 2 years on the table"....is just silly.
He was one of the greatest players ever...no doubt....but I watched his whole career and know too much basketball to say he was better then Magic , or Bird or other alltime greats.
heck...without Pippen( and Phil becoming the true greatest NBA coach ever)..he was real close to becoming a baldheaded Dominique Wilkins.
