This is old news and really... who gives a shit what he's got to say after stating what he did ?

It's obvious media agenda for who he's working for.

Salley has always been talking smack about Jordan. Back when the Pistons used to beat the Bulls in the playoffs he would boast about how with the Pistons they didnt care who scored the points, that is what made them a team.

He said "If one person scored all the points we wouldn't be a team, we'd be the Chicago Bulls".

I get what Salley is saying but his presentation sucks.

All of us remember the '1 man show' Bulls sweeping his azz in '91; must've slipped his mind?

Met an old timer at the park one day. Told me he used to shoot hoops with John Salley right in the exact spot I was standing.

John Salley has a point tho..

You know, Salley can be disagreed with...for sure. But it's kind of ridiculous that it has gotten to the point that people think Salley actively has something against Jordan because he doesn't see him as the absolute best. A lot of people don't see him as the GOAT...they have memories older than Space Jam.

It's not that Salley has anything against him at all... he's just doing his job, which is to say something controversial and make it sell. ESPN 101.

Oh and it's interesting that his opinion changed in the last few years:

So he thought he was GOAT and now he doesn't ? Nothing changed, it's who his employer is.

And your right, Jordan's not unanimous GOAT, but can certainly have the best case for it

I hadn't seen that to be honest. Pretty sad if you're right about his intentions.

I was making a more general statement that I don't think it should be controversial or newsworthy that people don't think Jordan is the GOAT.

Understandable.

I think the bigger reason it was news (OP didn't lay it out) is some of the players he listed out. People like to point out and laugh at people making idiotic claims.

It's one thing to say someone isn't the greatest, but to not even make sense and put up random standards is hilarious (the McHale and Thomas selections)... especially when Salley called Jordan GOAT before.

Its not consensus. But more people will say MJ is GOAT than any other player. John Salley? Take that with a grain of salt. He did after all play with the bad boy pistons who were an arch rival of jordan back in the day so Im sure he still has no love there.

magic johnson conceded mj was goat. even isiah thomas said the same thing.

but both were working for NBA on NBC when they said that. so whether they were real views or just "words from the boss", who knows.

i think it was during one of the bulls finals. go look it up on youtube if any of you are bored.
