Someday we'll stop comparing people to Jordan. Especially when they're completely different types of players. If Shaq showed up in the league ten years later, would we compare him?
A fewdays ago there was a spurs analyst on 95.7 the game (sports radio show), he's a former player too, but I forgot who it was.
He said Michael Jordan is the most underrated player ever, because whenever a player comes in the league and has a couple great years they're immediately compared to Jordan. He said Kobe and LeBron are great, but no one compares to Jordan. He talked about how Jordan three-peated twice in a row, he said Jordan would've probably won 8 in a row if he didn't go to baseball for a couple years, (I honestly don't think that's as ridiculous as it sounds). And that no one has ever been as dominant like that.
he said other things, like Jordan made every big shot whenever he needed, he was always dominant in the finals, etc. A lot of what he said makes sense, it was a really good interview. I obviously never watched Jordan play in his prime, I was too young, but I agree with him. People need to stop comparing players to Jordan until they achieve what he achieved.
I know Pete will disagree with me on this
It was a good interview, I'll try to find it and post it in here.
