Ask any player and they will tell you Jordan is the greatest player ever, and every player strives for a championship.
Know why?
Cause great players win championships.
Achieving the highest plateau of your chosen profession defines you as a player and a winner of championships.
You wanna be an idiot and deny that, you may wanna laugh at your last sentence like everyone else is.
Lebron does have a chance to be the greatest ever, and he will be judged on his body of work including championships.
So Reggie Miller, Karl Malone, Allen Iverson, Dominique Wilkins... weren't great players because they never won a championship and the bench-warmers of those winning teams were much better than them HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
What a bunch of ignorant idiots.

MJ was just a little smaller than LRJ do you think that he was on drugs? MJ is now much bigger LRJ,do you think he is on drugs? You are accusing everyone of using drugs?
Yeah. I DO think MJ was on drugs.
MJ is NOT bigger than Lebron now.
You need to get your eyes and brain checked.

I'm accusing ALL large/muscular athletes of using drugs because you CANNOT get big/MUSCULAR without drugs. It's just that simple. And why wouldn't you use performance enhancing drugs if your career/life depended on your performance and had easy access to those drugs?

Let's all not forget how Durant said he was offered performance enhancing drugs (by someone 'inside' the NBA) but refused them.

Why wasn't he questioned by reporters, the police, the DEA, WADA... about his statement? Why wasn't he asked who exactly offered him those drugs?("team-doctors " no doubt) Why wasn't it all over the sports news?

Yes, I'm "lumping" you in with the idiots. You're no better than that Ginobili clown if you think championships make the slightest difference as to how good a player is and all that other CRAP you wrote.
Jordan wouldn't have won any championships without Pippen and the rest of his gang. If you think great players push others to better themselves and whatever other crap.. then why didn't Jordan win any championships with the Wizards you IDIOT?! I'll tell you why.. BECAUSE HIS TEAM-MATES WEREN'T GOOD ENOUGH! He even complained about them saying how sh*t they were! Now what would've happened if he had Kobe, Duncan... on his team (Wizards)? HE WOULD'VE WON MORE CHAMPIONSHIPS!
Those players I listed w/o rings were the best players in the NBA at the time. You're saying they weren't good enough? So the bench warmers with championship rings were better than Iverson, Miller, Malone...? LOL!
I don't care if people here treat me with respect or not. If you disagree with me and don't respect me, then you are an idiot.
Stop wasting my time. At least with that other idiot I can educate people about drugs and drug users.
You are clearly wrong and I am clearly right. End of discussion.
I'm really surprised you don't write in all caps while using 1,000 exclamation marks.

So the gist of what you're saying is unless I agree with you, it's wrong because you're always right...?

Only an imbecile would mention those names in the same breath as MJ.
Only an imbecile would think that how many championships an individual player has won matters, in terms of how good he is, in a TEAM GAME + think that MJ was so much better than other MVPs of the NBA.

Ok assuming Aussie. Yes, I'm American but my entire family is English. Speaking of genetics, you know why us English utilized Australia don't you? We put all the crazies of England on a boat, shipped them off and locked them up in Australia and it's apparent you're a direct descendant from one of the crazies.

And who in the hell says I want to be as big as the hulk anyway?! Pull the needle out pal.

Players are bigger than when I started playing basketball thirty years ago at a very young age because of better diet and conditioning not roids. Most of us players will not touch toids because of its mid and long term side effects. That roid stuff only works for a few years and then your body just break down. MJ has proven he can play over his fifteen year tenure and he was not stupid enough to take roids or else at age 39 and 40 he would not have put up those numbers and he was not given carte blanche when he returned for his last two seasons. PER of 20 for the last two years at age 39 and 40 is good.

We can't move on till Steroids let us. PEDs are no good for you just a few years of glory and then boom. To be good thru out a 15 yr plus career you need to work at it and take care of your body. Look at what happened to those that abused it badly, in some cases it cost them their lives.
