I agree. My point was he definitely is on pace to make a strong run at MJ's resume.
2012, 2013, 2014 NBA Finals.
at the notion that a year career can be defined by one series.
I don't think even 50% of the players in the NBA circa 1966 would even make the NBA today and that's saying something as there were only like 9 teams total.
The 60s is just too far back in the development of basketball to be compared to any era past 1980.
