I saw him play. But I saw Bird and Magic play before him and a good chunk of Kareem. I've seen quite a few of them play. MJ was great, may have been the greatest of all time, but there were others not any worse. Peak Bird is not any worse. Peak Shaq is not any worse. I highly doubt peak Kareem and peak Wilt were any worse. They are a few marketing campaigns behind, that's basically it.
