Honestly Mj right tho the game has changed so much. Todays game these fools cry every time someone touches them and look for the refs to send em to the line.

Everybody feels like they lived in the greatest era.... The only true best era of anything is the "Attitude Era" of WWE wrestling!!

Let's take a look at the Bobcats and ask ourselves, does Jordan know sh*t?

Sure the man could ball (only second to LBJ, of course), but from an operations standpoint, dude is a moron.

Jordan coming off a bit delusional as of late. Niccaz respect is dropping by the year for dude. His personality will help players like Lebron surpass him imo.

Even if they pass him as basketball players (and even that ain't guaranteed), they will never live up to the image or icon of MJ. sh*t, I bet it's still some motherfuccas in China that don't even know who the Stickman is.

i couldnt agree more with mj and been telling everybody for years lbj is good but dude wouldnt be anywhere near as good in the 80's, most of yall cats on here didnt start watching hoops until after 2000, i watched hoops in the 80's and the players in this era aint toucing the 80's
the game in the 80's was much more physical, dam near every team had 7 footers and if you drove to the hole you was gonna feel it, nowadays a hard foul is a flagrant foul
so bottom line i couldnt agree more with mj, 80's>>>>>>>>>>>this cotton candy era

MJ has a point...All these numbers LBJ putting up is good, but the talent level across the board is just down. Back in the 90's, an all star roster had HOF's from the starting 5 to the bench...now you got guys like David Lee on all-star squads. What MJ faced night in and night out was a lot tougher than what LBJ does. AND for almost half of MJ's career there was no hand checking call. You drove the lane with dudes all over you then got punished when trying to get the shot up. Lebron 260 blowing by people who can barely put a hand on him. I grew up watching MJ and I'm the same age as LeBron, but I'm tired of the comparisons...because they're ridiculous

In the 90's the same n*ggas went to the All-Star game every year regardless whether or not they deserved it. Today you not having a 2013 Steve Nash season and getting an all star nod.

Paul Pierce aint even make it and Luol did. That's a weak argument.

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?"
And this is what puts Jordan over his peers. n*gga didnt just want to beat you. He would study you so that he could demolish you and take your soul.

We talking about the same Michael Jeffery Jordan that would play 72 holes before a playoff game? Or the same one that would be out drinking and gambling the night before a game?

Jordan was just a monster, but I doubt he was watching game film on Nick Anderson and Dell Curry.


Mike aint have this expert analyst when he drafted Kwame tho

I remember there was a thread awhile ago about how NBA players of the past compare up to players of the present..

And I personally believe that the players of the past were a lot more harder than the soft a.ss players we have nowadays. The thing is, with the new rules and such, the older players would be better than most of the players of today, but the transitioning of the rules would probably hinder some of their abilities to play ball.

In jordans era they didn't have three steps and they didn't have uncontested dunks. Players were more focused on winning than being celebrities and the centers were just monsters. There could be more players on that list but it doesn't change the fact that players are softer now.
