Default A discussion is going on right now in the NBA forum saying Michael Jordan...

Could have been a better wide receiver than Randy Moss. The discussion started out about athleticism, which I have no problem with either choice, but then comments were made that Jordan could have been a better wide receiver than Moss.
This would put Jordan as a top 1-3 wide receivers of all-time. Considering that is where Randy Moss is generally ranked. MJ would challenge Jerry Rice.
Please football experts, tell me this is a false statement. The Jordan is mythical status will always loom in any basketball forum, but a better wide receiver than Moss? Is this a fact?

Ofc, it's absurd. Just because someone is a dominant athlete doesn't mean he'll translate into another sport. There's tons of athletic specimen in the NFL that don't make it because they lack skills or don't have the IQ to play at a top level. People just assume that Jordan is the GOAT basketball player he can walk into any NFL team and replicate that success. Too bad theirs route running, catching, footwork, etc.

I hear people make the same comparison for soccer. I remember people on this forum saying Dwight freaking Howard can be a great goal keeper or that Kobe Bryant would have been the GOAT.. Really? On what evidence.

I suppose if Jordan had applied his considerable competitive juices to training for football instead of basketball? I guess its not impossible...but on the surface, I think it sounds ridiculous.

I guess Kobe Bryant would be better than Messi at soccer.

Moss was born gifted with freakish olympic elite speed and amazing hands. That's what made Moss who he was.

Jordan doesn't have those talents.

Best part of that thread are the people saying he makes an MLB roster. Dude would have never made it off the bench in AA with his level of play if his name wasn't Michael Jordan.

If you want to debate something reply to something that I wrote. You're throwing a hissy fit and calling me out because I speculated that MJ could have been a great receiver if he had chosen to play football. Well, he is extremely tall, had great leaping ability and a lot of speed along with great coordination. What physical traits does a great receiver need that MJ didn't have? Furthermore, I specifically said that MJ probably would not have been better than Moss. Your attitude is really not called for and tossing my name in like that was misleading at best. I didn't previously know whether or not you are more logical than this because I don't really remember anything you've written, but now I know.

Think of the ramifications of this crude attack! Your career may never recover if you don't publicly defend yourself.
