Generation_D: EyeballKid: Generation_D: He never won an NBA title either, did he?So, Bill Cartwright was a better center than Patrick Ewing?Luke Walton's a better forward than Karl Malone?See, you win those championships as a team.Is the name of the game Basketball or 1v1 ? I'm sure Maravich could smoke most players 1 on 1. But his game was less useful at putting a winning team on the floor. Not all his fault, blame his GMs. But same thing with Ewing, when a star is good enough that ownership ignores the rest of the team, look what happens.Jordan had to threaten to quit, LeBron did quit/change teams. No one guy is great enough to win a title on his own. Even if he can shoot 44 a night while wearing crappy chuck taylors.So in a way it IS his fault. All those points amount to .. nothing .. just points. So if you celebrate points he's a hero, if you watch the game to see how talent forms into a title team... he's pretty much irrelevant.
