You are now officially the worst poster I have ever met. Hands down, I'm not sure how you even get through a day. I'm convinced you're a troll and that is it. Not one thing you've said here contradicts proof that is shown in NBA articles and by multiple players playing now and in the past...HOF players and players that are at the top of their game now. My "mind numbingly stupid conclusions" are ones that players from today and yesterday ALL agree on. READ! ALL of them said the same thing about hand checking. ALL of them said the same thing about the physical game. Yet somehow you know more than them? How ignorant does that make you? Since when did 7 lbs make people more athletic and who is judging athleticism? You are exactly what is wrong with people today...lazy and you probably do nothing in life but post emoticons thinking they make you smart. You are so far out of your league here and its embarrassing. All your Zone Defense BS proven wrong by the stats and you gloss over it...just like Pippen and everything else. You've been made a fool. Take your complex and run away. It is becoming embarrassing. If LeBron wanted more physical why did he cry to the refs when the Bulls and others were physical? Again, size doesn't make one physical or better. Seriously, do you know how to read and tie your shoes? EVERY point was schooled above and you claim these players and legends know nothing. Plain and simple, you need to go see someone about your inferiority complex. Because you can't even keep up with all the stats provided above. Basketball isn't A v B because people play different positions. Saying Jason Kidd has more assists than Jordan is easy. Same with Shaq having more rebounds. It is their job. A shooting guard's job isn't rebounds yet Jordan still averaged more rebounds in some year in the prime of his career than your glorious forward BUT his average for his career...even when playing late..still is only 1 below this super athletic forwards. How do you not get this, unless you know nothing about basketball? You also have to take into account their roles on the team, when they played etc. It is why all the quotes I put on the previous play, all of the stats about style of play, etc make the argument for Jordan in a majority of NBA experts minds. The fact that you can't rationally see this is why you'll never get basketball. IQ.
