2013 NBA Finals thread: San Antonio Spurs vs. Miami Heat

I agree with you , but I also don't think Pippen would have developed as well as he did had it not been for older brother (MJ) beating on him in practice.

Many players from the MJ teams played on other teams, but many never panned out to be as good with MJ not along side.

Not Pippen. He played better without Jordan on the team. Horace Grant continued his success too. Jordan was great...but he wasn't that much better than Kobe or Lebron. Both are still playing...so their legacy is not set in stone.

just sayin...



They aren't even in that position without Lebron's 4th quarter. They lose by a lot without him.

Lebron's start of the 4th was ridiculous.. With that said he wasn't clutch in the final minutes. He missed the first 3 badly then redeemed himself with the 2nd. Missed another 3, threw a ball away, and green hit one off lebron's hands. That's just what I can remember off the top of my head. I think that's the only possible knock you can have on lebron. He is an amazing player. Jordan 1 Lebron 2 and I'm a lebron hater.
I'll just leave this here...

Oh Lordy. lebron's got a LOOOOOONNNGGG way to go before he's #2 all time behind Jordan, IMO.

Jordan was significantly better than Kobe and Lebron. Lebron has the chance to improve but right now he isn't there. Jordan gave you 50 point games regularly during the finals. Last night vs that defense he would have scored 50 plus. You just don't lay off MJ like that because he could shoot lights out inside the 3 pt line. He would laugh at these defenses. And Penny Hardaway too. If Penny stayed healthy history would read differently

Who's better, Wilt and Russel? Lebron is the man. He just flops like a girl.

Re-watch it and pay attention to the ticker at the bottom
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?

Agreed but lebron is on jordan's tail.

I'm glad you brought up my fav. player of all time. While everyone and their mom cheered for jodan, I cheered for penny. Just bought his shoes a couple months back.

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.
