It has come to my attention that some people are confused about the greatness of Michael Jordan. MJ is the greatest basketball player to ever set foot on the face of the planet. There are many names tossed around when the discussion of the greatest basketball player ever is brought up, and Kobe Bryant’s name comes up often. By the time Kobe finishes his career he will be in the top 10 best NBA players of all time, probably top 5, but let’s get one thing straight MJ is the greatest. If you don’t believe me let’s look at what they have done.
Career Stats (per game)
NBA Finals MVPs
Regular Season MVPs
ALL-NBA First Team
Defense All-NBA First Team
Defensive Player of the Year
In conclusion Michael Jordan for his career averaged more points, more rebounds, more assists, more steals, won more titles, had more finals MVPs, had more regular season MVPs, and beats Kobe in virtually every meaningful category. MJ also played in an era that was more physical than Kobe, and MJ would have scored more points if he played in today’s NBA. Michael Jordan was the perfect combination of raw physical talent, god-like basketball skills, and the heart of 100 men. MJ is the greatest to ever play the game, and no one will ever take that title from him.
