Default Jordan Says Only 4 Current Player Could Play in His Era

Quote:
JORDAN PLAYS his new favorite trivia game, asking which current players could be nearly as successful in his era. "Our era," he says over and over again, calling modern players soft, coddled and ill-prepared for the highest level of the game. This is personal to him, since he'll be compared to this generation, and since he has to build a franchise with this generation's players.

"I'll give you a hint," he says. "I can only come up with four."

He lists them: LeBron, Kobe, Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki.

No KG, Wade, Durant, etc?

Dirk is pretty soft, if that's what MJ was basing his statement off of.

Typical "back in our day...." garbage that all old people are prone to do. Nothing to be taken seriously here.

Anybody today would be able to to play in ANY era, and be just as successful in it period

Default Re: Jordan Says Only 4 Current Player Could Play in His Era

I absolutely agree actually. Wade *****s way way too much to make it in that era, Durant is too weak, KG...idk he could probably do it but who knows how he'd deal with real tough guys.

Much of Garnett has been false bravado and manic 'look how crazy i am' posturing.. If he were to have played in the 'bad boys' era or in the knicks vs heat brawling type era, where rough play was permitted.. he wouldnt be the menacing KG that we know now. He would be a tough great defensive player but he would be one in a pool of many.

I would have liked to see him go all 'Your wife smells like cheerios' to Charles Oakley

I love MJ but only 4 players is nonsense. KG would definitely be able to handle his own. As a 21 year old he put up 18 pts 10 rebs 4 assts 2 stls 2 blocks in 1997-1998, the last year Jordan played for the Bulls. In his Prime, KG would be more than able to handle the OLD era. Ray Allen was good back then, not to mention Jason Kidd possibly.

Kevin Durant too skinny and weak? Look at the skeletal Reggie Miller, got most of the shots he wanted and he did play against the Bad Boy pistons, Bulls, Knicks and Heat. None argues Miller was better than Durant.

Come to think about it, MJ once again is going by ring count in mentioning these 4 players, as between them they have won 11 of the last 14 championships (since MJ retired).

Orlando Dwight wouldn't even make 3rd team All-NBA in MJ's era. I would take Shaq, Zo, Hakeem, Drob and Ewing over him easily.
