I know...I should. This will be my last response to this troll.
I did a 2 minute research and found an interesting article. It had the quotes from well respected Coaches like Wilkens and Versace.
``He`s a great player and he gets all the calls, and if he gets all the calls he`s tough to play against,``
Lenny Wilkens said after that earlier game.
Then, after the Bulls beat the Pacers here last week, Indiana coach Dick Versace, whose team plays the Bulls next Monday, said Jordan ``is nice to watch, but he has an awful lot of license.``
Finally, Milwaukee coach Del Harris, whose Bucks play the Bulls here Friday, said in response to a reporter`s question about Jordan`s MVP chances: ``As ominous as it may sound, I think he`s still improving. One thing making him tough now is they`re letting him carry the ball when he changes direction.``
Lebron is averaging 7 FT attempts a game this season...which is good for 6th in the league. Kevin Durant averages 9.3 FT attempts. Jordan, who was getting 9 FTs a game in 1990 didn't think he was getting enough calls.

All signs point to you being too young to have watched 90's NBA
Yes, I was very young in 1990s...and I'm glad I was. I started watching NBA in 1993-94. But, I do have access to internet. 3 NBA coaches (2 of them were considered pretty damn good) made my point for you. The article I posted above is from 1990 and preferential treatment of Jordan only got worse in the following years.
Maybe you're just too old to recall the NBA of 1990s.
