Jordan achieved more against alot tougher defense in the early 90's than any other player to date, and it was almost a relief by the time they got to the finals LOL.

Greatest to ever do it by a wide margin and Kobe will tell you all that.


Also the fact that Game 3 and 4 were back to back with no day off in between. I would agree also about the early 1990s and 1980s were >> late 90s, even a team like the 76ers in 1990 were fun team to watch for me. Never mind the great 80s teams like the Celtics/Lakers. I will also agree Air Jordan is the best in my opinion, but I cannot argue someone who says Wilt, Russell, Kareem, Magic, or Bird. Because remember this is team sport and there are different criterias for the "best".

But lateral defensive footspeed doesn't matter as much when you can reach out and hold/push a man's hip/stomach when he starts beating you off the dribble one way or another. Hell, Dirk would be a great defender of dribble drives if he could hand check a driver like that. LOL

Bruce just says the sh!t in an over exited way, but his underlying assertion is correct.

Your an idiot, holding is a foul, even with the hand checking rules.

U must be confused with jungle ball.

No the type of fouls was different. For instance they could hold a little, mind you they could not mug the other player, but none the less it slows them down a bit. Where as now if you touch the other person it is a foul.

Great Post...

And let`s not forget the 5 second back to the basket rule...the Anti Barkley and later on Anti Shaq rule...

Barkley would destroy today`s league...Barkley laughs at Zone Defenses....Greatest Olympic Player of All Time
