    Curry has been blocked many times by much bigger guys than LeBron

    And no one would ever be intimidated by Lebron because they know his soft guy nature (scared to fight; frequently gets punked and does nothing)

    But I suppose if Lebron was capable of intimidating someone, it would be a spoiled athlete's kids who can barely dunk and get hurt trying

    Otoh, try instilling fear in Karl Malone, Antoine Carr or a couple old-school, cornfed whiteboys (Stockton/Ostertag).. It's a lot harder... The Jazz were much bigger and physically superior than the Warriors

    Now look how MJ instilled fear in the whole building - that picture shows fans and players literally biting their fingernails as MJ sized up Russell for the last shot

    Dwight beat a 66 win team, so by your logic he's better than MJ and won a better series than MJ ever won

    But carry on.... I guess you gotta cling to something...

    1969. Holding Wilt to 12 points on 50% from the field, and winning against Wilt, West and Baylor. Simply the G.O.A.T.

    And that time he went back door on MJ as a teenager and smashed with 2-hands as MJ flew by.. and then the Nique-style windmill as MJ/Pip watched in competitive admiration from the bench

    So Godbe has great power and rose above MJ at times... But it was MJ's higher level that he was always reaching for - whereas MJ stayed at that level (it was HIS level), and was therefore better the vast majority of the time

    Great find, and that's certainly goat....... of 2-pointer basketball

    2-pointer basketball lacked the spacing for open shots, good efficiencies, and good team offense, so a 1-way defender like Russell could dominate and win the most

    But since 3-pointer basketball began in 1980, all 40 MVP's have been dominant offensive players - so we know Russell wouldn't be MVP-caliber in the modern era... Instead, it's the goat scorer and efficiency rating leader that has the most rings in the modern era as "the man" (6 FMVP... 2nd place has only 3)

    The thing is Wilt at worse was an equal to Russell and Russell beat his ass all the time. MJ never faced a player on his level. MJ had weak competition
