    Michael Jordan was third round pick for the NBA. Then he became the most famous and best player in all of NBA history. Why is that? How? He sold his soul. No other explanation. You don't go from 3rd round pick, a loser to become the greatest player of all time.

    i would say Larry Byrd gave Michael Jordan a lot of competition during the early years of Michael Jordan's career. also Hakeem Olajuwan gave Jordan competition.

    "...he could have been the NBA rival that Michael Jordan never had.." WTF are you talking about foool? Jordan was in teh league for seven years before he won a championship. His team, the Bulls, LOST every single playoff series to Larry Bird's Celtics. Jordan had to wait for Magic and Bird to retire, the Jordan started juicing, his hair fell out and he was a steroid freak just like the NBA wanted. Get your facts straight

    Saying that Isaiah never won again is far from the truth. The Bad Boys were reaching retirement or traded. This is the reason why Isaiah says MJ is not the GOAT because they knew how to stop him.

    Bias was just a freak of nature athlete. His overall skillset was no where near Michael's, but his athleticism and hops woulda carried him for sure in the NBA. And its not like he couldnt shoot either. Michael was so good though because of his versatility. He could literally do EVERYTHING. Post up, fade away, dunk, layup, jump shot, 3's, foul shooting, bank shots... He did it ALL... And he was a monster Defender on top of all this. Imagine a James Harden that actual put in real effort and hustle on both sides of the court lol

    Jordan is the Greatest to ever play. He was intentional about becoming the best. He had the natural talent and athletic ability to match. His competitiveness and work ethic made him push past others who may have had a glimpse of being able to rival him. Jordan is still the GOAT. If you were lucky enough to have grew up watching him, and you’re honest about it, you will say the same. In my opinion the only one who had the natural game and talent to maybe rival Jordan in some way was Iverson and he just couldn’t make it happen. Jordan is the Gold standard of Basketball and no one can take that from him. Period.

    As far as I know Michael never did any drug, not even alcohol. Len Bias died of a siezure while snorting coke 2 days after his draft pick to the Celtics. When you want something so bad you reject all distractions, you burn past the people who want a little of everything.
