 Michael Jordan's List of 4 Players from NOW that could survive in HIS Era of Basketball
Lightbulb topic by TraV - 02-15-2013, 09:59 AM




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.

When someone on TV compares LeBron to Oscar Robertson, Jordan fumes. He rolls his eyes, stretches his neck, frustrated. "It's absolutely … " he says, catching himself. "The point is, no one is critiquing the personnel that he's playing against. Their knowledge of how to play the game … that's not a fair comparison. That's not right … Could LeBron be successful in our era? Yes. Would he be as successful? No."

This dude should just stop talking... You were a great ball player, but evaluating talent isn't ur strong suit Those wouldn't be the only 4 players to make it in "Your" era But then again, you thought Kwame Brown & Adam Morrison could make it in this era so we know your opinion don't mean ####

Alright I've seen this used about 10 times already. But it makes no ####ing sense. You don't think Jordan can't look at todays game and see who the best players are?

You don't think evaluating talent that is already in their prime is a HUGE difference than evaluating 19-22 year olds in college?

Lightbulb Michael Studys Lebron - Artice Cont.

The announcers gush about LeBron, mentioning him in the same sentence with Jordan, who hears every word. Those words have an effect on him. He stares at the TV and points out a flaw in LeBron's game.

"I study him," he says.

When LeBron goes right, he usually drives; when he goes left, he usually shoots a jumper. It has to do with his mechanics and how he loads the ball for release. "So if I have to guard him," Jordan says, "I'm gonna push him left so nine times out of 10, he's gonna shoot a jump shot. If he goes right, he's going to the hole and I can't stop him. So I ain't letting him go right."
For the rest of the game, when LeBron gets the ball and starts his move, Jordan will call out some variation of "drive" or "shoot." It's not just LeBron. He sees fouls the officials miss, and the replays prove him right. When someone shoots, he knows immediately whether it's going in. He calls out what guys are going to do before they do it, more plugged into the flow of the game than some of the players on the court. He's answering texts, buried in his phone, when the play-by-play guy announces a LeBron jump shot. Without looking up, Jordan says, "Left?"

So you two think only the 4 guys he mentioned would be the only ones to survive in his era???

Like I'm not refuting the 4 he said, but he's and idiot if he thinks those 4 would be the only ones to make it

And yes it does makes sense clown, his picks have been some of the most horrible in history and if these are his only picks to make it based of prime, then he doesn't know how to correctly evaluate that either

Crazy...

I dont visualize anyone in the game with this kind of approach and thought process on the game. Not even Kobe...
