I don't know who told you that, but they lied to you.sloth said:I disagree, Dwyane Wade is a better player then Lebron James. Lebron James hasn't figured it out and matured like Wade. Remember, Jordan wasn't a good leader, more of a ballhog and stuff during the first threepeat. He learned how to be a real teammate while playing baseball, and then when he started trusting his team more, during the second three peat when he didn't have all his physical talents, but a lot still, he was able to make the best teams of all time in a 3 year span. Lebron James can eventually win a championship on his talents alone, but until Lebron James starts to trust his teammates, or more importantly get teammates that he can trust, then he will be a truly great player. What makes Wade so great is that is he already knows how to be a great team player, and when to make the distinction of team, and when to take over. When Shaq is in he will let Shaq get the job done because he knows thats best, when Shaq is out, Wade will just dominate. I just don't see many people that can stop Wade when he drives, he is a truly great player, and I would like to take my hat off to myself for saying he would be a superstar, and best of his class.
All he did was ride his teammates ***, and not in a good way either. Not saying that it didn't help it got everyone playing at a higher level, but he showed a better way of leadership during the 2nd 3-peat.bullsville said:I don't know who told you that, but they lied to you.
Actually there has to be a nearest thing to MJ in theory. But I agree, there is nothing close to MJ at all.TRUTHHURTS said:There is no "nearest" thing to MJ I dont see how anyone who ever saw Mj play could say that and not laugh out loud .
It had nothing to do with how MJ was playing on the court. Yes, I know what game you are talking about. Game 5, Jordan passed it to Paxson, and Paxson made 4 straight shots correct? I am talking about how MJ was an ******* to his teammates, in particular Bill Cartwright and Horace Grant. MJ is a great on court leader, but he was a much more pleasant person to be a teammate of during the 2nd threepeat than the first one.bullsville said:Since you were 2 or 3 years old when the first 3-peat started, I'll let you slide, sloth. But I would have thought you would have at least seen Game 5 of the 1991 Finals on ESPN Classic or something, when Jordon kept passing the ball to Paxson in the 4th quarter so Paxson could shoot. That's just one example, but Phil Jackson got MJ sharing the ball before they ever won their first ring.
One year at the end of the season, Collins moved MJ to Point Guard and he averaged a triple-double the rest of the year. You weren't born yet, but trust me most selfish ball hogs don't average double-digit assists.

But was MJ a nicer guy the 2nd time around? He once slugged Steve Kerr in practice, and he didn't play with Kerr until the 2nd threepeat since Kerr wasn't a Bull in 1993.Jordan wasn't a good leader, more of a ballhog and stuff during the first threepeat
I think you are forgetting about a girl named Hinrich.TRUTHHURTS said:I agree with Showtyme but even if you break it down to a game by game there is no one even close .Jordan was the the most dominant player every game the entire game he didnt take months,weeks,days,halves,quarters, minutes off and were talking both ends of the floor.
His taking his lump games were 37 6 4 not these single digit elimination games some of these players are getting handed out to them now .
There is not a player today that can match the intensity Mj brough to the floor ever game.NO ONE !!
