Battled Dr. J in epic show downs.

Schooled Pat Riley and told the Lakers their contract sucked.

Became a strung out crackhead...

He did, plenty of them did. They made more money hustling on the streets than what they would get in a contract.

These are not false stories. Dr. J, Walt Frazier, Kareem, Earl Monroe, Tiny Archibald, ect will tell you the same.

Yes he did....the L.A. Lakers offered him something like 50 thousand for his first year non-guaranteed....he didn't take the offer cuz he was making more money on the streets...

Maybe you should go educate yourself first, so you can avoid looking like a complete tool....

GOAT was actually the middle ground of these 3.

Jackie was the man when GOAT was coming up and GOAT was the man when Pee-Wee and Joe Hammond were coming up.

Both Jackie and Pee-Wee were drafted by the league, Jackie went on to play with the Globetrotters for many years with another streetball legend, Connie Hawkins.
