Umm, this isn't hard. Obviously, Lebron is right handed, and has an inherent right hand bias, like a lot of players. If you are right handed it's easier to dribble, protect the ball, prevent getting blocked, and dunk when moving to the right of a defender.

he's ambidextrous. shoots right-handed but finishes with either.

Mike acts as if the guys of today aren't simply playing the game the way the rules have trained or allowed them to i.e. "products of their environment". If they came up from the bottom in his era they'd be just as good because they all have on thing in common...NATURAL TALENT.

If we're using the same magical instantaneous era transport logic as Mike then all the player from his era would foul out in 12 minutes and lack the athleticism to keep up with today's players.

U can't really compare the old era with the new and vice versa because even though u can evaluate a players skill by watchin...u can only a.ssume the way that they wouldve adapted to the way the game was being played bac then...but from an athletic stand point the new era sh*ts on the 80's/90's

Maybe so.....

Just as the 80's and 90's fundementals.....being able to shoot jumpers......playing hard nosed defense, better passing sh*ts one this new era


Case in point.....I give you Westbrick......who has the me first.....let me check my stats.....I want to be a star, but I suck half the times, mentality

This dude should just stop talking... You were a great ball player, but evaluating talent isn't ur strong suit Those wouldn't be the only 4 players to make it in "Your" era But then again, you thought Kwame Brown & Adam Morrison could make it in this era so we know your opinion don't mean sh*t
he is the greatest player of all time. he knows his basketball and he can definitely evaluate talent. Kwame brown would have been a top 3 pick that year no matter what team. 90% of teams would have picked Kwame first. he had unlimited potential and it wasn't jordans fault that Kwame was soft and never reached his potential. adam Morrison was the leading scorer in college ball and a lot of people were thinking he can be like keith van horn who had a solid career. they were both unfortunately busts but im also sure it wasn't jordans sole decision to pick them.

but yea he definitely has the credentials to evaluate talent. he knows basketball more then most of the analysts so im pretty sure his opinion is taken seriously. I think those 4 would be fine in that era. a prime kg would also but hes not even close to his prime right now and I think hes talking about the last 2, 3 years. Durant should have been on there but he would not be as good. it would almost be impossible for him to drive with the hand checks since hes skinny but hes a player that can get his shot over anyone. I would love to see how these players woulda played back then.

and hes not talking about which players are more talented. hes saying the defenses were sooooooooooo much tougher back in the day. u were allowed to put a hand on someone and anyone that played ball for a while knows how big of an effect that can do. its hard to drive and then u get a tiny push from the defense so you have to be strong and that's why bron will be able to play and kobe since hes tough. you got to be real strong

that is what i been saying the whole time

y'all mean to tell me if the players now grew up in that environment of basketball by the time they got into the league for a couple of years they wouldn't adapt?

Here's the funny thing..... Most of the people on this forum probably never saw Jordan play... This era saw. Jordan as a wizard. The game back then was way more physical, they lets dudes play defense, there's was rarely flagrants.... This is the era where u clowns think d Howard and Bynum are great centers

athletes are stronger and faster now than they were then

Defense is much better now than when jordn came in the league

Look at the stats from the 80s. . .Suck teams like the clippers used to shoot 51% from the floor and score 100 ppg

And I grew up on Jordan. . .I basically started watching basketball back when MJ was getting swept out the 1st round

he does that because the refs are giving it to them. y'all make it sound they was snuffing people like rudy tomjanovich on a nightly basis in the 80s-mid 90s.

cp3 can't survive because he flops but lebron can?

Yeah.....you are on to something.....


becuase watching sorry a.ss SacTown vs even sorrier Washington def. is a higher brand of hoops than watching Larry legend, Kevin McHale and Parrish battle the Showtime Lakers...


someone hand me a pistol.....this life just isnt worth it
Its always one monkey that needs a picture drawn for him....

n*ggas act like the NBA was Double Dribble and there were only 8 teams playing every night. Todays players play so much more basketball its not even comparable to n*ggas in the 80's and 90's. If you want to compare Celtics vs Lakers, then you just dumb. Go watch a Kings vs Bullets game from the 80's and tell me everybody on the floor is better than the players today.

No melo
Melo's pus*y would break in that era. He'd be getting his a.ss kicked all around the floor. He'd be upset, whining and average about 15PPG on 40% shooting because he'd be getting smacked around and couldn't handle the verbal abuse he'd get dealt.

Jordan needs to shut up and continue to fall back into the mediocrity he's built since his retirement.

"If's" don't count in this world.

What Jordan said holds no weight, at all.

Jordan wouldn't have been AS successful either, if he was only 5'7.

Jordan wouldn't have been AS successful either, if he didn't have atheticism.

Jordan wouldn't have been AS successful either, if..... dare I say, he was coached by Flip Saunders or Mike Brown.

Nobody should worry about who or what Jordan thinks would be successful 20 years ago. It's all hypothetically speaking and hypotheticals are NOT REAL.

So why did ya'll waste 200 posts on a hypothetical?
