MJ's perimeter ball skills was too advanced for his generation. Noone can stop him.

Another thing that seperates Mike from the rest...is that he was ALWAYS better than the hype. He was always there when it counted, and always rose to the occasion. If there was a hyped game between him and say Clyde Drexler, he would come out amped and eould perform. You wouldn't walk away thinking the matchup was overrated, or that we didn't get to see the best of Mike. Jordan would go out and destroy whoever, and more spotlight made him play on an even higher level. Can't really say the same for anyone else.

Here are highlights from another game that season. Bulls vs Knicks on Christmas day. It's not just of MJ, though. Lesser players do get the camera, for some reason. Three things from that game:

1) Ewing was very aggressive, even though he wasn't a great offensive player at that point. Made his move quickly, sometimes before the double could come, and often through the double team. That's what Yao Ming needs to do. You can only rely so much on sub-par roleplayers.

2) '80s defenses really weren't all that bad.

Edit: 3) I can't count.

Bulls-Knicks '87
