He was a very good player, but he wasn't GOD, as some posters here try to convince us.
Pretty sure your whole agenda is to prop Lebron, by diminishing Jordan in every way. Insecure
Im also pretty sure that you wouldn't think of using logic and understand that Jordan was playing on weaker bulls teams in the early part of his career, and that when he faced bird in these seasons, he was the guy they channeled their entire defense to stop Jordan with a better supporting cast. Jordan on those celtics teams would have the same dominance over bird, so in this case it is situational and goes further than just stats.
Now in saying all that I have the highest respect for Bird and how great of a player he was, but I get sick of idiots like you and the rest of the agenda driven trolls, trying to find ways to bring Jordan down. I dont have a problem either that people may not think Jordan is GOAT, but I do have a problem when people have no rationale to support their case and just spew out random BS to incorrectly point out some kind of mistake as to why Jordan should'nt be considered GOAT by a good number of people.
