Re: Why are MJ fans so insecure?
Kobe and Lebron (at their respective stages of their careers) have no argument against Jordan whatsoever. Absolutely none. Kobe fans know this, and don't even try to even debate.
What I don't like is when everyone hypes up the 80s and 90s and overrate the heck of the teams and players back then. A classic case of... back in my day syndrome. You can't look at me with a straight face and tell me the league has gotten worse the past 20+ years. It goes against everything we have observed. You guys talking about "Robinson, Ewing, Payton, Barkley, Malone, and Stockton" and the great "Boston, LA, Detroit, Jazz, and Bulls team". Well, guess what? 10 years from now, we'll be saying the exact same thing about the Spurs, Lakers, Celtics, and Heat and Lebron, Wade, Kobe, KG, Duncan, Dirk, CP3, Durant, and all of the other greats from this generation. Give it a break.
Players have gotten bigger, stronger, and faster (on average, of course).
