  • Nice to see Mike still have that fire in him, but he's full of shit. He shot 6/19 and 11/22 and 5/19 in the last 3 Games. GP is speaking FACTS. Rodman saved the Bulls. I cringed when they showed 3 MJ baskets from that final game, guess what other than what you showed the dude shot 2 of 16. So yeah. Gp slowed him. Mike said "his head was else where". Mike is rewriting history here and this DOC is just his personal promotion. He is the GOAT, but he's also one manipulating POS. I'm with Mike on the GOAT discussion vs Bron who isnt there yet, but i'd love to see him push Mike with 2 or 3 more rings, and watch MJ reaction and meltdown as people slowly start pushing James as the GOAT... would Michael with all his venom and pure hatred and malice unretire for the third time or what???

  • GP was right about that series. But he a true teammate. They lost game 6 in Chicago cause Sam Perkins and Nate McMillan were 3-17 from the field. Sam 3-14 Nate 0-3. The final score was 75-87 Bulls Jordan only avg 27 for the series. Kemp avg 23, Payton 18 and Schrempf 16. In game 6 Kemp, Payton and Schrempf had 60 points. MJ and Scottie combined for 39 But Rodman had 9, Harper had 10 Kukoc 10, Luc Langley 12 and Kerr had 7. Rodman has 19 rebs. And the bulls destroyed Seattle on the boards. But he has a point. But MJ them boys won anyway.

    • @Scott Holder Also the two he won are awesome but were not regarded as great as the 3 with Shaq. Now you say Shaq needed an elite guard well what's Pau Gasol then to Kobe? Shaq is top ten because hes the most dominant force ever to play. I'm agree with you but it's amazing we forget no one thought he was top 5 or GOAT till his untimely passing.

      The Count OThe Count O6 ай мурун
    • @Scott HolderThe Kobe thing is interesting because before his death he wasn't top five or top 10 to alot of NBA analysts. Why? Because the metric is about the individual leading the team to NBA glory ala Jordan. When Kobe was alive no one thought of him as the greatest because Shaq was the best player in all three finals. Also, Pippen gets the same treatment but the era is light years ahead of many of the post Jordan eras. I will say GSW is probably a team that could make an NBA finals in the Jordan era but its tight. Maybe that Supersonics team but any other I'd say no way

      The Count OThe Count O6 ай мурун
    • The Count O uh no. Pippen is the prototype to Kawhi leonard. Thing is MJ also fits that prototype. Only a 3 inch difference in wingspan and he has bigger hands (more athleticism) than both of them

      Red PanDa1Red PanDa16 ай мурун
    • Steven Brown Mike has a 6’11 wingspan which is bigger than Gary’s.

      Red PanDa1Red PanDa16 ай мурун
    • The Count O Pippen was the prototype to a lot of guys as a ball handling SF and a wing defender - Lebron is bigger and a better ball handler and scorer, but not a better defender - that would be Kawhi. As far as the Kobe thing, nobody mentions that Shaq NEVER got close to a Finals without an Elite guard up top. Both Wade and Kobe won Finals without a dominant big man, and Kobe won b2b without an all time top 20 player on his roster. Saying that Shaq was the primary option is one thing, but even Shaq admits that Kobe was at least the #2 or #3 player in the league when they were winning, and that he needed hi....People are acting like he was Ruben Patterson or something....and it’s funny bc NOBODY says the same about Wade - he only won bc he had Shaq and Lebron - the same argument (which I don’t believe) discredits him. To finish the point about Pippen : he doesn’t rate up there bc while he’s one of the best defenders (#1 in my estimation) of all time, and a very good ball handler and passer, he’s Average on the scoring aspect : nobody was asking Pippen to take the last shot in any game. The order for the Bulls was Jordan, Paxson/Kerr, Kukoc, Hodgson, etc. That wasn’t his game.

    • Nash's career was predicated on a lack of hand-checking and open lanes through D'Antoni's system. Payton's game was predicated on the hand-check being legal. I'd say that this points to Payton having the stronger game.

  • All men are guilty of sin. Repentance means to turn away from your sin. For example, if you are a liar you stop lying. Repenting is not just saying sorry, it is saying sorry and not continuing to do that sin. Sin is what separates us from God. God sent his son Jesus to die for our sins. Meaning Jesus took the punishment for our sins on the cross. If we believe on Jesus our sins can be washed away, and God will remember them no more. If we reject the son of God and continue in sin we will be under Gods wrath(hell fire). Repent today and believe on Jesus Christ, and recieve the free gift of eternal life.

    • Blueblur 22 Nobody could stay in front of MJ when he was at his athletic and quickness peak. It was a team effort. Dumars was great at playing sound, fundamental defense. Staying on his feet and not going for fakes, quick hands, leading him to the help and just making him uncomfortable. Jordan sometimes used to try and do everything in those early Pistons series which played to their advantage. Dumars himself though said once Jordan started trusting his teammates he knew the Pistons were in trouble. Payton was a great one on one defender. It’s a reason he was called “the glove”. He could pick you up the full court and make you uncomfortable the whole game.

      SuperPunch76SuperPunch766 ай мурун
    • Blueblur 22 no Payton guarded him the best. He had Mike shooting his worst field goal percentage ever in the playoffs. Joe could not guard Mike even if he kept in front of him. The good offense over good defense always shone brightly. He only ever had 4 bad shooting games against the pistons in like 15 playoff games

Watch MJ's first series against him and anytime Dumars wasn't on MJ, MJ had his way way with the Pistons. Payton however has probably guarded MJ in the post better than anyone though. Bulls struggled to get MJ the ball in the 96 Finals once Payton started covering him.

    • Taj Ferrell wrong. MJ has 3 MJ type games. He went 28 for 50%, 36 for 48% (round up), and 26 for 50%. So half the games he played he was bad which is why his average was down. However, that last 50% from the field game Gary guarded him

      Red PanDa1Red PanDa16 ай мурун
    • @Blueblur 22 Kemp allowed Rodman to control the glass. In a series where Jordan increasingly was having trouble scoring -- and often shooting -- number of possessions/rebounding becomes an even bigger focus. The Sonics shot a better percentage than the Bulls for the series -- 44% to 41 -- yet the Bulls shot 474 FGs. The Sonics? 418. Rodman's rebounding was key to Chicago winning that series. Compare this to the 1997 Finals. Malone controlled the boards and outrebounded Rodman, holding Dennis to 7.8 rebounds per game. Largely because of this, the Jazz outrebounded Chicago for the series. And the FG attempt gap was far closer because of it: Chicago shot 449 FGs, Utah shot 430. And notably, the series between Utah and Chicago was one of the closest Finals in 50 years, with the entire series being decided by four points, total. Rodman's performance in 1996 is traceably key as far as Chicago's survival. And Kemp allowing him to go for 19 rebounds in the sixth game is very arguably what finished the Sonics off. Jordan again had a poor shooting night, to put it mildly: he shot 26% with Payton on him. Detlef Schrempf was the game's leading scorer with 23.

    • @AnEn Rodman arguably deserved Finals MVP???. That's just crazy. Rodman may have dominated Kemp on the boards but Kemp destroyed him down on the block despite being raw as hell. Bulls shut down everyone in that Finals series except Kemp. They had no answer for Kemp as Kemp was just too quick for Rodman

      Hood atheistHood atheist6 ай мурун
    • @Hood atheist It's not a hypothetical to see that the rules changed, and that this changed the way players defended. Your inability to understand this shows a deep lack of knowledge. So far as it goes, within that same standard, Payton could not defend the same way. He knows this. If you drain water from a pool, it's not a hypothetical to state that you can't swim in it. Understand? Evidently you need a few diagrams. Further, Nash was a middling player under the old rules. And never played like a star outside of SSOL. These are traceable facts of skillset, league standard and basic system/pace. Similarly, Payton would not be able to grab and guide his opponent when defending them after 2005. This would inherently change his defense. Some things for you to scratch your head over.

    • @dolo747 There were great moments, even in Jordan's era, for various points. Stockton, for instance, had two relatively iconic moments in one playoff run: the shot against Houston in Game 6 WCF and The Pass against Chicago in Game 4 of the Finals. Payton may not have had a single iconic moment, but stuff like giving Jordan fits in the Finals is a pretty memorable performance. Price? I tend to think he played in the wrong era. I think Price had more offensive talent than Nash, but the system and rules were not in place for him.
