Default Re: The 1-2 rule or How Jordan revolutionized the Game

My point is clearly written. You understood it too. So I don't get your nonsensical first lines.

It seems to be that there was an existing pattern before Jordan arrived and made the NBA the super sport it is today. 1 generational player, then two, then one, then two then one. That last one contributed to make the NBA explodes. It got us an array of generational players (4 for this past generation) that was never seen before.

Even though Wilt played in the 70's, he was the generational player from the sixties. Likewise, Kobe, Lebron and Duncan are playing in the 10', and yet they are generational player from the 00'.

And, the last point I made was that Jordan is the biggest superstar the world sport has ever seen since he contributed to make so many generational players appear. This is something that, as far as I know, hasn't been done anywhere else, in any other sport.

Every superstar contributed to consecutive explosions of the NBA, and nobody did it by himself and without the explosion of the media. Last time I checked, it wasn't in Jordan's time when the NBA acquired black superstars or it went from 8 teams to 30 and it's not Jordan's time now that basketball is played at a high level by more people than ever before and most young kids know a lot more about Kobe and LeBron than Jordan.

If LeBron is a generational player of the 00's, then Jordan is a generational player of the 80's and Shaq of the 90's. It's not anyone's fault or to anyone's credit that some generational players start their careers in the beginning or the end of a decade (Mikan, Wilt, Kareem, Magic, Bird, Duncan, Kobe also became a "generational player" in the early 00's) and others at or near the middle of it (Dr.J, Jordan, Shaq, LeBron).
