So let me get this straight..... Lebron era generation who can't accept the fact that the man of their era was inferior to MJ are melting down and PM'ing you because their stupidity in the matter is causing 3ball to have to reiterate himself to get the same point across. Maybe if they understood even the most simplest, basic concepts they'd understand that MJ > Lebron, and stop refuting it, and that would enable 3ball to have to stop posting about it.
This is a simple cause/effect relationship.
Maybe it's just coincidence that those on this board who saw both MJ and Lebron play live clearly know who the better player is, as apposed to these 15-20 year olds who don't know any better and complain that they had to drop out of HS because they got bullied too much.
3ball helps to keep these 15-20 lebron stans that don't know shit in check and makes them squirm to the point where they run to you.
3ball is not the problem, the posters who don't understand that MJ > Lebron are the root of the problem. Get rid of them and your problem is solved. Simple solution to a simple problem.
No, it is you that can't comprehend simple things. Just because something appears complex in nature to you, doesn't mean it's complex for those who are of greater intelligence than you. Such is the difference between someone like myself that has forgotten more concepts than you currently know.
Next time think before you post... or don't and continue to make arbitrary claims without any backing to support them.
The guy I watched live from my era dominated his competition in the finals and went 6/6.
The guy that the bran lovers watched live got his ass handed to him and went 2/6.
It really is that simple.
It must really suck for these bran lover types once such simple realities set in... all that time they spent arguing with their betters (just wait till next year!!!!) only to come up short.
Most of them gave up hope and now stan Curry. What more can they really do? It's rather quite pathetic if you ask me.
I would be interested in getting the contact information from these so called "mods" at this site. They clearly don't realize that they are just making themselves look more uneducated by banning those who tell them MJ is GOAT.
It's just ridiculous to compare a guy who jumps teams to chase rings and makes a fool out of himself in doing so by coming up short in the process with a 2/6 finals record to someone like GOAT MJ.
If these people can't grasp such simple concepts as it applies to the sport of basketball, how can anyone expect them to grasp simple concepts that they encounter in their everyday lives? How can anyone expect them to ever amount to anything? I live very comfortably in today's ever challenging world and I attribute that to being able to discern fact from fiction.
The irony is that people are running to mods on this site to complain about posts from someone that is trying to properly educate them in the first place! That's how mentally challenged they are! They don't even realize they are getting educated and that the education has to be geared in such a way that it comes off as spamming, when really 3ball has no choice to use such a technique because all other efforts have failed. It's difficult to educate the willingly ignorant.
6/6 is a big enough sample size to conclude that if MJ has a team good enough to get him to the finals, that he CANNOT lose. This simply cannot be refuted and there's no other player in the history of the game that you can say this about without 100% certainty because either there's not a big enough sample size, or they have lost in the finals at one point or another.
How blessed are these 20 year olds to be able to hear the testimonies of those who watched MJ play live?! Their kids will be so much less fortunate. Wtf are they gonna tell their kids? "ya... we watched a guy go 2/7 in the finals"
The little kid is liable to go off the rails and slap his father across the fu
cking face for even mentioning such a shitty finals record to him.
What's sad is that the man of your generation is 2/6. Go cry about it to other 15-20 year olds. Misery loves company.
I meant no other player who AS THE MAN went undefeated in the finals with a large sample size. Why do you think I didn't mention Pippen in my statement?
Nope, I'm not even as old as Kobe. I only post on here on average of 4 times per day (check my profile), as a man of my 6 figure salary doesn't have the luxury and the free time of a college student. People like me don't make mistakes. We can't afford to because it means 1000's of jobs could potentially be lost. Yet here you are trying to argue with such a high level individual.
As I have stated in the past, it's not my problem that hat the man of your generation is 2/6. Go cry about it elsewhere because those who watched MJ live have no more sympathy left to hand out.
It's not anywhere as impressive to what MJ did.
The man of your generation is 2/6. The man of mine is 6/6, and that is why you will forever hold the L. It's that simple.
Arbitrary claims without any backing to support them. Thanks for strengthening what I already said about you.
Wrong, his wins are not as impressive as MJ's and it's well documented. In addition to having fewer teams, there were fewer playoff rounds and the top teams (like the Celtics) often got first round byes. Whereas Jordan had to win 15 playoff games to win a title (and often play upwards of 20 games or more), Russell played between 10 and 14 games to win each of his first eight championships.
By playing fewer postseason games, combined with shorter NBA seasons, this gave Russell a distinct advantage in durability over Jordan in accumulating wear and tear.
Russellís teams also were stacked with future Hall of Famers and All-Stars, including John Havlicek, Bob Cousy, Sam Jones, Tom Heinsohn, KC Jones, and Bill Sharman. The Celtics teams had far superior talent overall than any other team during his era. And despite all of this talent, Boston barely beat the Lakers in three separate finals, each in seven games.
MJ winning 3 in a row, leaving, and then winning another 3 is just simply more impressive than What Russel did when you take the context above into account. Good effort, but never argue against the GOAT MJ.
Afraid was it?
He was bored and felt unchallenged, so he left. When things started looking more challenging, he came back and repeated what he did the first time, and then left again. That's called shitting on an entire sport. The result?
Now show me one legitimate top 10 listing that has Russel above MJ.
When I picture an NBA fan like yourself from the bron era I see and individual that is stuck on shore, looking out to sea for a ship that set sail long ago, pondering what it might have been like to be aboard such greatness.
No, shitting on your teammates and owner is what Lebron did to Cleveland. Then he only went 2/4 in Miami.
What a joke
Now go show me one legitimate list where MJ isnt > Russel. Your little opinion that MJ leaving has any impact on him being ranked as GOAT is laughable.
Well wait while you try and back peddle your way out of this.
