In the old Bulls games that I have seen (thanks youtube, I owe you) MJ is always referred to as Michael.

"Here comes Michael!"
"Michael's starting to feel it out there!"

great players just happen to have very unique first names.

GOAT worthy names seem to rise above the common first name.

Marv still refers to Kobe as "Bryant" at least half the time, Marv is the man and doesn't jockstrap other players.
