What is hilarious is that you don't realize none of those guys would defend Lebron. Payton was a pg for chrissakes.

he would be the only player quick enough to defend Lebron, he defended MJ for chrissakes

Well yes, the big men back then were better. Nobody is arguing that.

None of those guys would have defended Lebron idiot. They played different positions.

Feel free to list any current players who could defend Lebron as well as Pippen and Rodman. I won't hold my breath waiting.

Default Re: Jordan Says Only 4 Current Player Could Play in His Era

I think people are taking this out of context or misinterpretting his comment.

He meant it as in, these are the only players that would have success in obtaining a ring in his era, and I agree.

Kobe, Duncan, and Lebron would all definitely win at least one ring. Dirk is iffy, but he did it with such a sparse team that I would think he would be successful with more help.

KG didn't win a ring without the "Big 3" and Rondo and even then, they still were taken to 7 games by mediocre teams.

Wade would be successful statiscally, it would be hard to imagine him unsuccessful in any era with his playstyle. I don't know if he would win a ring though.

Durant, remains to be seen... that's the one player I might include on his list, but he's not proven in this era quite yet. Hasn't even reached his prime.

agreed with everyone except for lebrick. it took him 10 years to finally win a ring and it happened in a cheat shortened season and where all the players who came from the 90's were way past their prime.

Default Re: Jordan Says Only 4 Current Player Could Play in His Era

Jordan is being generous, I only see Kobe being able to dominate in that era, rest of the guys are used to the extreme softness nowadays, some are too comfy being carried by refs every playoff run. Duncan has a case though, fake ass KG would be punked imo, back pedaling trash talking wouldnt be any good back then, dude would get smacked for being a bitch. Dirk is a strange case, although his game is overall feminine and soft, his shot is just to unguardable , he would still be effective.

Pretty dumb comment by MJ.

Even if the new players are really somehow ten times softer than they were 20 years ago, if they had been in the league in 80's and 90's and it really was so tough back then, many of them would adapt their styles.

There's no way that KG, Pierce, Deron, Chris Paul, Nash, Rondo, Bosh, Wade, Allen, Parker, Ginobli, Marc Gasol, Durant, Westbrook, and Harden all would have been too scared to play back then or whatever it is that MJ is saying. LOL.

Hey now, don't underestimate modern defensive powerhouses like Gay, Butler, Matthews, Jeff Taylor or Chandler Parsons.
