    Jake Plummer pushed his shit in

    Peyton Manning MULTIPLE TIMES pushing his shit in.


    Jordan's Career > Brady

    Not even close resume wise.

    air clown dominated some chumps and got his dad killed over gambling debts

    Larry Bird and LeBron, though Brady is the GOAT and MJ is the GOAT in the NBA.

    More MVP's, SB MVP's, career stats & SB titles > Less SB interceptions

    Brady's the GOAT

    I get the perception behind it. ONLY 8-10 TEAMS back in Russell's day.

    But what does it really mean? One less round in the playoffs, so it in essence started in what we know of as the second round.

    But the teams they had to compete against.... Literally all the available talent at the time was spread across 8-10 teams. Take away all the Euro players in the NBA and shrink the teams to 14 and their would be teams of Russell Westbrook, Tobias Harris, DeAndre Jordan, Lou Williams, Danny Green and DeMar Derozen being a borderline playoff team.

    Russell had to play Wilt like 8 times a year? Plus playoffs? Haven't they matched up against each other 100+ times..... Yeah the league was small back then but when your individual matchup goes from Wilt, to Jerry Lucas, Bon Pettit to Bellemy to Unseld to Willis Reed to Nate Thurmond..... Back to Wilt for two in a row, then Thurmond again.... In a span of two weeks....

    Joel Embiid had to get up for like 8 games this year where he knew he was going against someone else worthy.

    Bill had to have his tenticals up almost every game. And of course the playoffs he always seen Wilt.

    Better odds for sure when you're a 10 team league, but for the most part the current NBA is only a 6-8 team league anyway. On any given year that's typically the amount of teams that have any shot at winning. The other 22-24 teams don't matter much in the grand scheme of it all. Do the Nets from last year make it tougher to win the East? **** no. Magic gave a first game scare and then all was righted. These other team are just there, to get to the final 6 or so teams that matter.

    Brady is similar to Tim Duncan in a lot of ways. Both of them benefitted from playing under GOAT coaches, both of them made the playoffs every single season of their career, both are great leaders, Duncan had 5 titles and 3 FMVPs which compares well with Bradys 6 titles and 4 FMVPs, both have had heartbreaking losses in the final minutes of finals game 7 and the superbowl... the biggest difference is that Brady is the GOAT in NFL history while Duncan is somewhere around 5th-10th best in NBA history.

    Michael Jordan is certainly greater than Brady. Jordan was a 1-man wrecking crew on both ends of the court, dominating like no one else. Jordan never lost in the finals, and if it wasn't for the fact that he retired for 2yrs in the middle of his prime, he probably would have won 8 in a row. He also dominated in physical 90s rather than the protection Brady gets in football. There were also schemes designed just to slow down Jordan ("Jordan rules"). I'm sorry but Brady is not a Jordan equivalent.

    LeBron is probably a better comparison to Brady except in number of championships. If LeBron had a coach like Popovich/Belichik his entire career, he would definitely be the Brady equivalent, perhaps even greater, but he never had a great coach.
