And Lebron is obviously going to take that crown in 5 years anyway. But Kareem was amazing

I don't get how people can say this. How do you know what he'll have accomplished (or not accomplished) in 5 years?

Be careful stating which NBA player is best. Some players played under different rules and fiercer competition than others. That alone makes the discussion difficult. Also, if number of championships is a criterium, then lets not exclude Robert Horry!

Oh, here is the ESPN source for the James Jordan statement. Also, it can be deduced from the article that Larry Jordan was defeating Michael Jordan not only as a kid, but even in Michael Jordan's adulthood.

So in the article Larry Jordan says...
Quote:
"I won most of them until he started to outgrow me," said Larry, "and then that was the end of that."
and you say "it can be deduced from the article that Larry was defeating Michael Jordan not only as a kid, but even in Michael Jordan's adulthood."

You do realize that the statement "that was the end of that" would lead a reasonable person to deduce the opposite of what you said, right? What's crazy to me is that someone already pointed this out to you, and yet you re-posted this nonsense.

Re: Is Kareem the greatest player of all-time?

These are not my words, but very interesting words indeed:

"Michael Jordan idolized his older brother Larry who wore 45. He thought he had half his skills. His brother wore 45. Half of that is 22.5. Round that off and that's 23. When Jordan came back to the Bulls after his first retirement, he briefly wore the number 45 before going back to #23 in the 1996-97 season. Michael wanted to be half the man Larry was so he divided 45 by 2 and rounded it up to 23."

This has got to be the first documented case of a kid looking up to his big brother ever.

Thanks for saying that for me.

Wait.... what? What does this have to do with anything? Assuming this is actually true and now some ridiculous opinion filled babble, it says half the MAN not PLAYER. So it really has nothing to do with this thread. But way to sidestep Dornado's point.

I don't see what you're trying to prove with that statement...it doesn't discredit anything that anyone's said it's just more pointless jibberish from you.
