Default John Sally on First take

On First take right now, and said he feels MJ is a top 5 player, but not the best. He thinks Russell, Dr. J, and Bird is better, with Magic as the best player of all time. And as you should have expected, all hell broke lose and Skip and SAS went off.

Spiderman should know. He knocked Jordan and the Bulls three straight years as a Bad Boy and played with him later in his career. Who else would have a better opinion on the matter?

The idea that Michael Jordan is so much better than every other person that played basketball is nonsense.

I have no idea what happens if he is put on the court against Kareem or prime Magic or Bird or Shaq. People acting like it isn't close are fooling themselves.

espn generated hype. who knows what salley thinks (and who really cares)? but he's been a clown since he was in the league. doesn't surprise me that espn will pair him with 2 other clowns to generate headlines.

he's actually a really smart and articulate guy (listen to his Jason Whitlock podcast from a year ago). but he's paid to be a clown and espn must keep your interest for 24 hours so when the Finals hype dies down a bit, they love to throw out someone that says he doesn't believes MJ was #1. the hype should satisfy until the next game.

By the way (from 1998 referring to MJ)...

Yea it's pretty funny.. Like if you put prime Wilt on the Knicks in place of Ewing would MJ and the bulls really beat them every year? If you were to tranpose any of the true legends onto stacked rosters in the 90s and give them a top 50 all time player as a sidekick they would be winning rings too.

Jordan had the best team/supporting cast out of all the other greats.. better than Barkley, Hakeem, Drob, Ewing.. and no one every acknowledges it. It's just MJ won it.

at Magic (sans Pippen was my favorite player growing up) being better than Jordan...the guy that won more while playing on both ends at an ELITE level.

Even Magic will tell you, Mike was the better player.

magic says a lot of things about himself and others that are not true. He is extremely humble.

This. First Take or just about any other thing on ESPN is as legitimate as these reality shows, which is not very. It's Skip Bayless using his schtick as the contrarian who says the most outrageous things and Stephen A. Smith with his minstrel show. Two guys who lack integrity and who don't believe half of the things they say.
