With this type of 3 point game, and all the players being big, strong and fast Wilt might be a bench player. I'm probably exaggerating, but you see my point.

    Same with Jim Brown. When he played he was probably bigger, heavier and stronger than any of the defensive players on the field he was playing against... But now? He'd be one of the lightest and smallest.
    Considering the Era thing, hereís an interesting point. During his prime, was Kobe ever the best in the league?

    His first few years, no. Jordan was still king. Then Shaq ruled the league, followed by Tim Duncan. Next? LeBron came on the scene. Iím not even sure Kobe was better than KG.

    One final thought on eras and Larry Bird: he would not be a superstar in todayís faster, smaller league. And his 37% three-point shooting would be only slightly above average for outside shooters.

    Another overrated Laker: Shaq; owned by both Hakeem and Dennis Rodman.



    Shaq didn't start winning until NBA garbage time; the years after Michael, Magic, Bird, Rodman and Olajuwon retired

    Rodman owning Mourning...it took six fouls to do it in game 1



    No wonder that Bulls team was untouchable: Jordan, Pippen and Rodman on D. No one--not Shaq, not Alonzo, not even the Mailman, no one---can score on that.

    IMO, this is the final epic Michael Jordan performance in a game which really mattered.



    Good quality and fun to watch...you know with no other games to see available and all.

    One of the few games where the 72-win Bulls team looked vulnerable. Not the best quality video here, but it's a great game.

    So, I watch the championship clinching game below.



    And, the first thing I noticed is that Jordan was human after all. Oh, and Rodman was way underrated.
