Craig Ehlo, he won't make the same mistake twice. Or was it three times?

Sending Danny Fortson to injure him would be my best chance.

Damn

Everyone who has put KG to guard Jordan, forget it.

Old ass Jordan punked prime KG in that video, imagine a prime MJ.

KG has no chance.

Great find, Dragon, we have video evidence that KG can't stop MJ.

Moncrief or Pippen. But idk, Jordan might get bailed out by the refs.

Exactly, and this is what makes me laugh. You have guys on this board that swear down that Jordan wouldn't stand out as much as he did in the 80's and 90's and yet there's video evidence of broken down Wizards Jordan torching guys like this, is this era of 'tougher defense'.

Here's old ass Jordan abusing Shawn Marion in his Suns prime:

Ron Artest in his Pacers defensive prime:

How much more fukking evidence is needed?

I think we are all forgetting how good of a one on one defender Ron Artest was at his peak(it was a short peak). I have never seen someone better definitively better at his position.

Detroit-era Dennis Rodman. Michael Cooper is a great choice as well. These are the two guys that had the nerve and quickness to play up on MJ and dare him to drive past them. MJ had some big games and some not so big games against both but either way it wasn't easy. This is late 80's MJ I'm talking about.

Reggie Lewis had the size, quickness and natural instincts to make him work but I'm not sure I'd put him on MJ for all the marbles. Had his career not been cut short, he could have been an elite two-way player. He was great as it stands.

2nd threepeat MJ? Payton, probably. He was strong enough to make MJ fight tooth and nail for his post position and quick enough to recover relatively well if MJ gained half a step. He was just short enough for MJ to post up but strong enough to make that option hard as hell. Derek Harper was also tenacious during the playoffs that year, despite the two 40+ point games.

1st threepeat MJ? Roll the dice. He ate up Rodman and Dumars. Reggie Lewis had a good game against him in 91 but was eaten up in the other 3 games, iirc. John Starks did a good job in the 93 Playoffs, but it really wasn't just him. Payton was a light snack during those years.

?

Did you even watch that video or did you just read its title "MJ abuses Ron Artest and Pacers".

I just watched it all.

I saw Artest (he was #23 then) guard MJ for 4 buckets total there. And 2 or 3 of them involved picks.

And it is a highlight video, so it doesn't show MJ's misses or times when Artest or whoever was guarding him held their ground.

By the way, his totals for the game were 11/25 FG, 25 points, and 3 assists. Yep, Artest sure got torched .
