Like Nash said, the wings in Jordan's era were trash. I like Reggie Miller a lot, but he would be no better than Joe Johnson in today's NBA

Exactly.

We live in an era of wings today, back then in the NBA it was all about front courts.

This makes what Lebron has done look ever better.

It's hilarious just try and think of players that would had to defend Lebron back in "MJ's era"

Wade shot 46% and averaged 16 points his rookie year in 03-04. The same season where handchecking was at its absolute worst and superstars around the league were struggling. The guy would be a star in any era.

If Kirilenko, Manu or Peja could make it to the all-star, yeah Sasha Danilovic would have very little problem doing so as well. Sasha Danilovic had to dominate Europe to even get an invitation to the league, as opposed to a bunch of unproven or mediocre junk that is constantly being dragged from Europe (or wherever outside of the States) now. Sasha Djordjevic, one of the most dominant European PG's of all time couldn't even do anything, today you have Barea averaging 11, 6 in 25 minutes

So Dwyane Wade wouldn't be able to hold his own against the '90s Grizzlies, Wolves, Raptors or Heat?

I will grant you that Vancouver Grizzlies roster was absolutely killer:
Shareef Abdur-Rahim
Greg Anthony
Pete Chilcutt
Blue Edwards
Eric Leckner
George Lynch
Rich Manning
Lee Mayberry
Eric Mobley
Lawrence Moten
Moochie Norris
Anthony Peeler
Bryant Reeves
Chris Robinson
Roy Rogers
Aaron Williams

with a stellar record of 14-68 I'm sure they would easily stomp on any team of this season? They'd probly go 68-14 this year, right?

Jordan had to play against those guys!!

Jordan's era didn't start with the 95 expansion. Late 80's and early 90's in general had much better wings than the league has today.

Zo missed the All-NBA Team in 1998, with both Hakeem and Ewing missing much of the season. Dikembe made it ahead of him and Dikembe is flat out not as good as Howard. Even in 97, Shaq missed a bunch of time and Robinson missed all but 6 games. Howard in 2011 would have made that team ahead of O'Neal. He would have made the 1st team.

Daugherty averaged 21/10 shooting 57% from the field, 78% from the line when he made the 3rd team, with 3.6 assists and 2.5 turnovers. Howard always has more turnovers than assists and can't make foul shots. It is no sure thing he would have made it over Daugherty.

If the best players are hurt then Dwight has a chance but that doesn't make him better than them. Would you seriously take Dwight over any of the 5 i listed?

This is the nostalgia that many older people feel. Back in my day bread was a nickel. Back in my day LeBron would have been the best player in the league. Same thing really.

LeBron is the best player in the NBA now, and Jordan in his own words said LeBron would be as successful in his era, meaning LeBron would be the best player in the NBA in his era. Goes to show you how great LeBron truly is. We are witnessing the GOAT, let's enjoy it.
