I like Jordan. he's the GOAT.
-His crunch time wonders. Whenever Jordan had the ball,late in the game,you expected and KNEW he was going to make it.
-Magic had Bird...Jordan had....No one. He was in a league of his own.
-As for the advantage of having Jordan from a team aspect,a passer doesn't attract 2 or 3 men. He freezes the D because they don't know whether he'll shoot or pass. Although very valuable, I prefer a player's ability to attract men simply because of the opposing's team obligation to rotate quickly on D thus making that team work on D.
