[QUOTE]In Response to Re: LEBRON'S SKILLS ARE SUPERIOR TO JORDAN'S, HE WILL ULTIMATELY BE GREATER! WADE/BOSH =PIPPEN! : Agreed. Some people just fall all over themselves when one of their idols (Pippen) says something ... he thinks cause Pippen was a good player, he must know everything there is to know. LOL Ill tell ya something else, watching replays of games years ago is a far cry from watching them live.... when you already know who the winner was and when you dont feel the pressure of the game and cant really appreciate the pressure the players are under... its night & day and put way out of perspective. You cant know watching Russ go against Thurmond what the circumstances are when your watching a replay 30 years later.. Hes just another blinded kid acrowning Lebron again, like so many have foolishly in the past... He wants to be the one to say I TOLD YOU SO... if one day his prognostication comes true. Its so comical watching him hang on and grasp for straws... Way over his head but too stubborn & full of himself to ever admit he really doesnt understand what hes saying
Posted by Karllost[/QUOTE]i've just about had it with some of you lamebrains. you cant read, complain about things i'm clearly not sayin and despite 30 clarifications you're still too dumb to not stop running into the wall of idiocy! first of, i was never a big pippen fan. I'm more of an MJ guy. my best all-time player was LARRY BIRD and yeah i am a brotha as well. paul pierce as all of you who actually READ my words on this board is by far and away my fave player today not LEBRON.
unlike a lot of you i am able to take my head out of my homer sand castles and stop sipping the standard issued kool-aid and think objectively. i've NEVER really been a bron fan. however, right now, i give the man his props based on what i have seen, not read or heard from others. i find most experts dead wrong and full of hype and agendas. just as i have done on issues where i am clearly in the wrong, if it is proven that bron is still not up to the task or worthy of the pedestal i am reserving for him i will admit that. would any of you do the same if he is named finals mvp and he sweeps or dominates the mvvies? we'll see! you just keeep stewing like a bunch of little children.
of course bron isnt there yet, who said he was presently better overall than mj? i'm a pierce guy but lots of guys who have had far superior talent and skills have never amounted to a hill of beans. a giant will. killer instinct , dedication and leadership are things that count even more and cant be easily quantified. pp has those in spades if not in actual freakish athleticism. as to the moron saying russell "could rebound and block shots better than mj" so lets crown him greater as well... all i can is you need help in reading and interpretation.
if russell at 6'11 also played the point and covered oscar robunson and guys like jerry west and so forth, you may have a point. russ was a center pure and simple. you still dont get this? bron and mike would have been going one on one, mano a mano had they played in the same era esp in the fourth quarter as he did in SHUTTING down mr. rose (6% on fgs when bron was in his zip code). would a scenario exist where russ is one on one on iso plays with mj or a bron or vice versa? give me a break.
finally in the dumbest retort i have ever heard, you karlost come back to the fact that since i actually did not see russ play i have no idea of what i am talking about. oh really? so y judge babe ruth, george washington or jesus? y should those born in the 90s ever have an opinion on jordan? y should those born 10 years from now ever have an opinion on bron? see how dumb and moronic you sound now? heck y limit it to just tv watching. you must actually be at the games. only those reporters who actually have acccess to the locker room can comment. r u kidding me with this nonsense? we must make the best of what we have and use our power of deduction. i have seen enoughof russ to know that had he enough been surrounded by an all-star hall of fame team that he would not have been as great. thats what i meant by my healthy perk comparison.
when you have 4 all-stars and great depth off the bench, a russ is luxury. he survived the injury bug, was black at the right time and able to stay around for a while so he's the greatest ever? give me a break. russ was and is the JOHN OATES of the nba. oates is the most renowned and highest paid backup singer in the history of music. bill russell is the most most glorified player of role player/backup-worthy skills in the history of sports and the nba. again, back to the perk thing. nothing wrong with that, i still hold him in respect and esteem but lets get a grip and some perspective!
i am a huge hall and oates fan as i am with bill russell. like oates, russ was the ultimate team player, perhaps the greatest team player in history. oates wrote a lot of hits, participated as a songwriter and producer, colaborated with other artists, played like 50 instruments and still has one of the most soulful voices i have ever heard. but come on, daryl hall is the actual jordan of the group. without oates however there is no team holding together and hall aint shining as he did. no oates, no big glory for hall! no biggest selling duo in music history moniker or long lasting legacy. like russ, every major young guy today pays homage to hall and oates in terms of samples, guest appearances, tributes and shout-outs. russ always had more mainstream critic appeal but i see him in the same vain. the ultimate glue guy! tons of love.
