And the funniest part is, that he uses THAT to criticize Payton and call his whole defense overrated. When the truth was, he was guarding the GOAT, and he held him to 39%. But in Rosen's eyes, that defense he played on the GOAT proves how overrated his defense is.


Honestly, that is one of the stupidest things I have ever read.

I agree. Payton's defense on Jordan in the Finals is one of the highlights of Payton's career. Absurd for Rosen to use it to blast Payton.

I think Rosen makes good points elsewhere, though. He's taking it too far to claim that Malone, Barkley, Robinson and Ewing aren't all-time greats, but he makes some good points about them and others. His Payton argument is the worst, especially with the attack on his defense.

Anyhow, thanks for posting it. It'd been a while since I'd read it.

Sorry but Payton is/was over-rated defensively. He was a good defender but from '97 or so on it was all rep and little substance.



Most over-rated player of all time is Michael Jordan. Michael was a great player. One of the very best ever.

That said, he's routinely called the single greatest player of all time and it's ridiculous. There is no logical criteria you can come up with, outside of non-basketball stuff like media impact, that make him the top guy in league history.

Actually that is everything. This is the stupidist comment I have ever read. Training camp, trades, signing players, all for a title. My goodness open your eyes. I will ignore the "dominating every opponent part" but winning a title; that's what its all about.

Too easy to realize who compiled this list. It's not even because he's the only guy in this topic whom I've put into ignore. Mainly because he's the only guy you'll ever see who tries his best to blast his (supposedly) own era.

One more person? I have never heard anybody say that.

I will say it again:

Yeah. I was just talking to this person that says dominating every opponent and winning lots of titles is not everything. I couldn't believe someone had said that.

Reggie Miller. He never was one of the top 10 players in the NBA. Mitch Riichmond was better than him.

Agree somewhat. Nice jumpshot, but not the defensive presence he was expected to be.


Quote:
Reggie Miller--shot the 3 great and didn't do much more

Agree. Shooting was the only thing he could do. Not good on defense and flopping got him to the foul line many times. Still one of the best shooters of all time.


Quote:
Larry Johnson--Had one 20 and 10 year

Strongly disagree. Injuries is what brought him down. He was not overrated at all. He was a great forward for a guy 6'4"-6'5".


Quote:
Alonzo Mourning--Great at blocking shots. Under performing rebounder, not a super passer, always injured (even pre-kidney.)

Strongly disagree. Excellent defender and a decent scorer. Injuries brought him down, just like Larry Johnson.

Overall, yes, Richmond was the better player.
