51 at age 38, 45 pts at age 39,. Makes you wonder what LeBron will do at that age

A couple of my favorite example of Jordan's speed/first step at age 39-40:

Insane instant acceleration to full speed and the ground he covers in an instant.

This one too:

Give Lebron two years to chill on an MLB bench and take roids with the good ol' boys and watch how strong he comes back.

Jordan is simply the ultimate combination of speed + size + jumping ability in one package as a basketball player.

He had the speed of a very fast 6'0 player, especially from a full stop to full go, but at 6'6 2-guard height combined with an unreal wingspan and ability to jump over/around anyone if need be.

I think he is a freak of nature completely, no one else in his family is over 5'8 so he is able to have the speed a small guy would have.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJAIyXQ5wNU

You look at his 5'8 brother Larry Jordan ... that's got to be a high 30s/40-inch range vertical leap as well ... Michael seems like he got the speed and jumping ability but got blessed with 6'6 height on top of that.

It's also why I think it's going to be a long time before you see 'another Jordan'.

Once you get over 6'3 or so you start losing speed as a player, but Jordan freakishly retained that while also getting the extra height and arm length. Cap it off with huge hands that can easily palm a basketball ...

Where the hell have you been, bro? The boards are horrendous now. However bad you thought Kobe stans were in the 2000s, the LeBron children are fifty times more annoying and misinformed. Do you ever update your YouTube anymore?

And the Jordan stans are worst of all. 40 and 50 year old men defending the size of his dick.
