George Karl is the Tony Dungy of NBA coaches, and even Dungy won a ring.

Rodman also said Jordan would average at least 40 points per game in the current NBA.

"I'm just sick and tired of people comparing (James) to Michael Jordan," Rodman said. "It's a whole different era, man."

Rodman said the NBA game was much more physical then than it is now.

"LeBron came into the age of the game at a perfect time," Rodman said. "Michael came into the game when back then you could hit people, knock him down, shoot a free throw and get back up. And LeBron can't do that. All they do today is (complain) about a foul. All they do is (complain)."

So how would James and the Miami Heat stack up against the 1990s Bulls?

"It would be no contest," Rodman said. "The Heat has better talent than we had, but we had smarter players. That's the only thing we had, smarter players. ... I would take (Chris) Bosh out of his damn game easy. That's not even a problem. And how would Dwyane Wade match up with Scottie Pippen? Really? And Scottie Pippen would guard LeBron easy. And how are you going to cover those two guys (Jordan and Pippen)?"

bucks offered Monta a 3 year deal
I wonder if this means they'd rather have him than Jennings

The Bucks offered the 27-year-old guard a two-year extension through the 2015-'16 season, resulting in a total package of nearly $36 million over three years, according to a source. Ellis would have been required to opt in to get the additional two years on the deal.

That includes the first year at $11 million, with annual raises bringing the total to $11.8 million in the second year and $13 million in the final year.

The average salary would have been about $12 million.

Dennis Rodman also thinks Kim Jong-un is his good friend. lol

Jordan got so many calls during his career, top players often joked that don't even get close to Jordan - refs will blow a whistle. What Rodman forgets is how Karl Malone dominated him and Lebron is faster and bigger with better handles than Malone. Rodman will get dunked on by so many great athletes who are playin' in this generation. Back then Malone was a freak of nature...lol - he'd be slow in today's game.

Pippen and Jordan were great two-way players...but just like Jordan and Pippen played with hand-check rules on offense, they played with hand-check rules on defense too. Take that away, and they may not be as good of defenders as Kobe, Wade, Lebron etc. at their positions.

These older players like to have it both ways. First they will talk about how they went against great defenses because certain rules were not in place (there were only 2-3 teams who played solid D, other teams were crap...watch some old NBA games on NBA TV) and then claim how great they were themselves defensively.

It's funny...I read a quote about 80s NBA from a player who played with Oscar Robertson. He said something similar about Jordan what Rodman said about Lebron. All these old turds think their generation was the best. What they don't realize is, the game is constantly gettin' more competitive...physically and mentally. Half of them wouldn't even be able to deal with media, money and the criticism that comes with it in today's game and a guy like Rodman (who had trouble controlling emotions...would have tough time stayin' on the court to shut down someone like Chris Bosh).
Lebron isn't bigger than Karl Malone lol
My all time NBA starting five:

PG: Magic Johnson
SG: Michael Jordan
SF: Lebron James
PF: Kevin Garnett
C: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

I'd swap Duncan for Garnett, but that's a good 5.

This is from 2009 article:

And just how big is James, exactly? Well, that is a matter of intense speculation around the NBA. He came into the league in 2003 weighing 240 pounds and is listed at 250 in this year's media guide, but that number is clearly low. There are whispers that he goes 265; one report recently had him at 274. "He's at least 260, right?" guessed Jackson, who added that D-ing up James is like "guarding a brick wall.

I'd swap Duncan and Wilt with Garnett and Kareem. Depending on the opponent, I'd even consider putting Lebron at PF and Kobe and Jordan at SG/SF. All those guys are great on the board at their positions...plus you got Wilt at Center who will pull down 20 a game against anyone.

PG: Magic
SG: Kobe
SF: Jordan
F: Lebron
C: Wilt

Oh my bad I didn't know that we were going off of what some players said in a sports illustrated article.

The facts are Basketball-reference.com lists LeBron at 6'8 240, and Malone at 6'9, 250. Wikipedia has Lebron at 6'8 250, and Karl at 6'9 265

Both dudes are big. Lebron is obviously more athletic but they're either too close to say one is bigger than the other or Karl is bigger based off of facts. And Karl Malone just looks bigger lol. Have you ever seen a picture of him?
