Default Better than Jordan?

Greatest player of all time, I think we would have to agree.

Wilt is the only player that comes close.

However, I keep hearing this rumor that Stackhouse played him
one on one, and won the game.

Is there any truth to this rumor?

So who is better than Jordan in his prime?

And one on one who would you like to see Jordan play? (both in their primes)

I personally wouldn't even put Wilt ahead of Magic, Bird, Shaq or maybe even Russell.

no one is better because jordan had everything a basketball player could ever want. he had skills like lebron but lebron is a frickin retard when it comes to basketball acumen when compared to Michael Jordan. Jordan was both the most intelligent and the most talented player the game will ever see. that's why when he was 40 and lost much of his physical abilities, he could still make fools out of the entire league when he was a Wizard...smarts. that's what it's all about. remember, more than half the league today is brain dead compared to magic johnson, larry bird, ect. those players knew what the game was all about. players in the league today think it's all about doing the solja boy dance and sporting a fat rock in their ear as they make the highlight reel on sportscenter. it's not only a soft league (compared to yesteryear), it's a dumb league as well. the league has been flooded with ignorance.

I'll give you Shaq, but Bird? No.

Russell, maybe.

(Magic Johnson vs. Michael Jordan is the one on one match up of the century.)

MJ vs. MJ

This is what happened after Stack claimed he beat Jordan one on one.

Clearly, this is the entire league's motivation. The Soulja Boy Dance.

Remember when Mike started his own shoe brand?

The two (self promotion and winning) aren't mutually exclusive. There just has to be a balance. I'd like to think most of the league has found it as I'm yet to see anyone "superman that ho" or "YUULLLE" after hitting a 3 on the wrong end of 26 point blowout recently.

Well then it must be true. Stackhouse did beat him one on one.

Thanks for the video.

Really don't care...btw, I was clearly joking on the last post.

Jordan vs Magic is better.

Thank you,

What about Shaq vs Jordan?

What would that score be? if they played to 21, and no 2-pointers?

Wilt Chamberlain remained as the best NBA player until Jordan reached his prime. Compared with Chamberlain, Jordan demonstrated that even shooting guards could dominate the game as good as the centers or Power forwards, which was considered impossible before 1990s. Anyway, how could you imagine a team in 1970s or 1980s could have won a title without a good center? The point is that Jordan totally changed the way we think about the Basketball game. Therefore, Chamberlain wouldn't exceed Jordan even if he scored 1000pts.

I would honestly rather see Kobe(prime) play Mike(prime), if that was possible, than Magic vs MJ. Just because there's people out there who say Kobe is better(I don't agree) and their styles of play are very similar. Would be a great game.
