2012-2013 NBA Playoffs Discussion Thread

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.``

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.


Where does it state in those quotes that beneficial treatment started with MJ? Still not backing up your own statements "Of course Magic and Bird got calls but they weren't protected like Jordan in 90's"


I'll wait

Most FT attempts list:

Magic Johnson - no. 39
Larry Bird - no. 101
Michael Jordan - no. 9

Michael Jordan is the only SG other than Kobe Bryant in the top 20. But, Kobe Bryant has logged in 4200 more minutes than Jordan in regular season.


When you look at the playoffs - it is not even close. Jordan averaged 10 FT attempts a game for his career, whereas Kobe only attempted 7.4...Magic attempted 6.7 and Bird got 6.2 FTs. Only Wilt and Shaq attempted more than 10 FTs a game over a course of 10+ years and their 50% average from the strip may have something to do with it.


No guard attempted more FT per game than Michael Jordan in playoffs. This is true of any guard that came before or after Jordan.

So glad we get 2 games tonight.
I still don't get why the Bulls are crying about officiating. It's pretty clear that they're playing dirty (by today's standards) and trying to get the Heat to react.

That, and the fact that they were the biggest physical mismatches in NBA history.

Jordan's easily the most coddled superstar I've ever seen. Not even close. I have no selfish reason to defend LeBron over MJ, but it's not even close in terms of love from the refs.

Not dirty but physical. Lebaby will continue to cry about it.

They were fine in game 1...but have been playing dirty and stupid in the following games. They are bullies and when Heat smacked them back - they lost their cool. Very typical of bullies.
