    Basketball is not war

    Context matters

    I don't know honestly outside of the depression. When I spoke with him it seemed like he wanted to talk to someone. I don't know the guy though beyond that. He seemed cool.

    Jordan had the pleasure of playing with himself and two other hall of famers. Maybe not for every title run, but let's not act like he carried them every single step of the way.

    I'll say it, even WITHOUT Jordan, some of those Bulls teams would've made deep playoff runs. Jordan's the GOAT, NOT disputing that at all...just to put it out there lmao

    Not at all. Everyone does like you mentioned. I'm obviously biased because I know him. I just think he's getting more then he deserves here.

    Bitchmade is bitchmade, the easier context of a sport makes it more pathetic in my eyes

    Clearly i have different views on this, carry on

    Pippen is a top 50 player. That's a lot of help. You know this being a Kawhi fan who is about as close to him as it gets

    sure, so was kidd, but not at the pt when he was on the Mavs later on

    you can disagree all you want about career achievements, but its a FACT that Jordan won a title as the lone AS, something that has only been done a few times and something LeBron never even came remotely close to doing

    If we're going to play that game, then Lebron's team wasn't as bad as people make it out to be. Ilgauskas was a recent AS at that pt, and Hughes was on the All D 1st team the year prior and scored 22ppg......

    but his team sucked, right?

    Is someone arguing that Lebron and MJ are equals? If so, I totally missed that.

    If not, then it doesn't really matter...it's Air f'n Jordan.

    if he beats the Dubs this year, which I seriously doubt, but if he does that has to put him at near consensus #2 all time even w/ the finals losses

    beating a team in the Finals w/ a better record, and two of the recent MVP winners on the roster is a fucking absurd achievement if it happens
    edit: if yall care, which maybe you don't, I still have KAJ as two in my rankings

    we can technically use spotify and other shit on our computers, but I try not to test the government protocols

    so I usually wait till lunch and watch the highlights from the various sports shows on YT

    needs more Will Cain IMO

    And that matters in what real tangible way, other than semantics
