    Yeah they always seemed more fundamentally sound and team oriented back then and know who they are as players compared to some of their american counterparts.

    Why is no defense Kukoc guarding MJ in that clip? Damn, teams showed no respect for a past prime MJ.

    Damn, thought it was a proper 1 on 1 match like this:



    Maybe history wouldn't have been so kind to MJ if offensive assassin John Rogers played for any of the opposing teams

    I think that medias and people overall are very ignorant about MJ days in Wizards, he was great there, I really love to watch him in Wizards, maybe it's just me, but I just loved his performance and moves and skills in Wizards, because he was relying totally on his skills from perimeter and post up moves etc... in age 38-40...and still he was averaging 22 points per game. Amazing.

    Given reign to run his own thing, he is probably a 24/6/6 type guy.
    You clearly never watched Kukoc.

    He was like a less athletic, not as good of a defender and slightly inferior ball handling version of Lamar Odom. No way could he lead a team. He’d give you 25 one night and then 8 - 15 the next three straight games.

    He was never once an All Star.

    At 30 years old (that’s prime) in the 1999 season he put up 19/7/5 as the teams best player and the team went 13-37. They were utterly putrid.

    Where the hell are you getting 24/6/6
