So based on this logic...Jordan thinks Russell is the greatest - including over himself. Good to know.

Its just norms for the GOAT to pick the future GOAT..

People should not be surprise with this anymore..

Picking Kobe is usually expected choice from anyone maybe except retarded LeBron Stans..

MJ was a nice player but he's a terrible talent evaluator. Kwame Brown and Rodney White my a$$. No wonder he'd pick Robert Horry over the likes of Karl Malone/Patrick Ewing/Charles Barkley.

Jordan is an ISH kobe stan the way he uses terrible logic to try to prove a point. If you are going to go with kobe over lbj then use his strong points like his man defense in his prime or his ability to create offense for himself. 5 ringz! is just weak.


Russell > MJ confirmed. 11ringz!!?!?!

Witnessing talent and guessing are completely different things.

Who ever said MJ made great decisions as a gm?

Horry was a role player. Winning can only be a criteria for elite players, players who lead their respective teams with their play and put their team mates into position to excel Horry, although a good role player, cannot be compared to the all-time greats like Jordan and Kobe. Horry could only shine and win when elite players he played with put him into a position to do so. A Robert Horry's can't put a team on his back and put his teammates in a position to win like a Jordan or a Kobe caliber player.

When the hell was this? I've never heard Jordan say in the media that he was better then any of the greatest players much less proclaim himself the GOAT. And I've definitely never heard him say Kobe was 2nd.

Man u guys dont listen for shit

Im on my phone but damn looking at the interview, he states thats a tough one, then states Kevin Durant...they laugh.... he states in ref to pure dominance right now Lebron James, he then looks at careers and starts talking about Kobe at age 34 logging tons of minutes trying to guard opposing point guards says thats insane...he's cursed like me...but last time I checked 5 is greater than 1. He is then asked about Durant and he said hes coming up on those guys through the back door

He knows Lebron is better right now, but he also knows Kobe isnt in his prime and thinks its probably unfair to compare the two at this stage...one guy in his prime the other on his downside

This....


- He didn't say Kobe is better right now......he also said Lebron is dominating basketball more then anyone ....

- MJ meant Kobe > Lebron as a basketball player ( based on Kobe bieng the greater Champion/winner)


For the Basketball illiterate: HE(MJ) is comparing the 2 greatest players/superstars of the past decade.....

- not role players ( cough Horry).... or Highschools kids coming into the NBA ( cough Brown or AM)...but 2 proven elite basketball players.

- seriously.....the people still using "Horry" or " Cousy" arguements are F'ing stupid.



- Not sure what all the confusion is about....lots of Rustled Kobe haters gettin thier Jimmies on....



- Kobe is the greater Champion.....MJ values Winning over everything....that'
s what made him.

^^ lol at kobe is the greater champion. My ass.

Give Lebron or Wade a PRIME Shaq for 8 years and either one of them win 5 rings, not just 3 in 8 years.

Give Lebron a dominant frontcourt of Odom/Bynum/Gasol when they were younger and obviously much better than they are now (and 3 bigs who can all pass the ball extremely well, which is huge and often overlooked), in the pathetic western conference that had crappy frontcourts, and Lebron has 8 rings now, not just 5.

What happened when OKC brought in Perkins to add to Ikaka and Durant up front to match the Lakers frontcourt ???, and what happened when Dallas brought in Chandler to add to Dirk up front matching the Lakers frontcourt advantage in the West ?

What happened was Kobe was exposed as the fraud he always was. Kobe and the lakers got trounced 8 games to one in those 2 series vs OKC and Dallas with early playoff exits. Without a dominant frontcourt that could breeze through the western playoffs Kobe is (and was) useless. Nobody in the west was fearful of Kobe the stringbean Bryant and his chucking and stupid play. They were fearful of the lakers frontcourt length and ability.

MJ is just trying desperately to make a legacy of rings, for his own benefit, not anyone else. As Miller said last night, MJ's comments are hogwash because he knows Lebron is staring over his shoulder as the GOAT.

- who knows?.....Russell has a legimitate case though...

- But Russell dominated 30 years before MJ came into the NBA....really hard to compare 30 year diffrence and much diffrent style of game.

- Lebron and Kobe have overlapping careers.....and play in a much similar era.

- Russell was named the GOAT in 1980....and has teh Finals MVP named after him.

- that would have never happened if he choked in the Finals every year
