    Default Interesting quote from "The Jordan Rules"

    This from Sam Smith's 2020 Introduction to his 1992 book The Jordan Rules:

    There have been players with comparable skills to Jordan's, but there has never been anyone that combined them with his unbreakable spirit and seminal competitiveness. He outwitted people as much as he outplayed them.

    He captures something there that you can't see in the stats, and people today don't understand if they did watch basketball in those days. Jordan had a presence on the court that dominated the game. Very few other superstars came close to matching it. Lebron never had it. Kobe never had it. Magic never had it. You could say Bird had it. Shaq had it for a short while. Players like Wilt....I don't know, because I wasn't watching basketball back when they played.

    This unbreakable spirit had to retire 3x. 1x because of mental fatigue, another because a little midget called Krauss bullied Jordan too much.

    3rd time because he wasn't even an all-nba player anymore.

    Jordan was also 1-9 without Pippen.

    That quote actually applies to Bron 100%.

    Never before have we seen someone play 19 seasons, average 25ppg minimum for 18 of those seasons, 18 all nba teams.

    Little did that author know he would be actually describing a player that was still 8 years old at the time the book was written. Fate.

    “I don’t know if I could have survived in this Twitter time, where you don’t have the privacy that you would want,” he told Cigar Aficionado’s Marvin Shanken last year. “And what seems to be very innocent can always be misinterpreted.”

    You just keep showing off your low IQ. No intelligent person in his right mind would apply that quote to Bronie, the chronic loser. When did MJ ever have a series like Bronie did in 2011? Hint: never. The guy doesn't even have the mental fortitude to make clutch free throws.

    Nice try. Try harder next time.




    Furthermore, if you were literate, you would have read in the OP that it was in the 2020 introduction to the 1992 book. He wrote it 2 years ago, genius.

    The casual braindead op seems to be unaware that his dad killer actually begged for stern's help in 1990. That's why the flagrant foul was implemented into the league bt. Stupid thread. Just another futile attempt to make people forget that he's been posting solely about lebron here most of the time.

    Trump lost by 7 million votes to an old boring democrat that at most gets 200 people to show up to Biden rallies.

    Humiliating defeat.

    Trump never got over it and is still butt hurt about it.
