Frederick: On the court Jordan is the most overrated player of all time. If I were to pick any player from any time to begin a team I wouldnt start with Jordan.


Lol.  You think Jordan is overrated?  Stupid kids these days commenting on players they never saw play.  I watched him score 60 for the Bulls on the same day that he got four touchdowns for the Bears.  I watched him set the long jump world record on one of his dunks.  Then they measured the dude's heart after his death and it was twice as large as any of the competitors.  Or maybe it was Secretariat, but what's important is that Jordan was the best player of all-time and you are a n00b.  Lol.  You're just mad that Jordan bet on the Bulls and made a lot of money when he beat your team.  Lol.

BMulligan: Jordan was okay, but he was no Lew Alcindor.


I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night. Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.

No Catchy Nickname: I think the main problem with your argument is that you use "MJ" to refer to one of the two players, when in fact those initials could be used for either one.

Back in the late 80's (early 90's?) I was a white middle-class kid dying to get a pair of Air Jordans and my mom came home with these:

Yes, that's MJ for Michael Jackson

HighOnCraic: At NBA legend Magic Johnson's house, Obama said he talked with David Remnick, the editor of The New Yorker, who's traveling with the president. Obama said Remnick, who was a sports reporter earlier in his career, asked him, "So, what about Magic? What does this mean to you?"
Obama seemed to completely dismiss Michael Jordan and his "hometown" Chicago Bulls by saying there's "nobody" who is a "bigger icon" than Magic:
"You watch this career unfold, and it's a magical career," Obama said. "For anybody who loves basketball as much as me, there's nobody who is a bigger icon than Magic Johnson."
More than his career on the court, Obama said he admires how Johnson handled his HIV diagnosis with grace and how he leveraged his fame and fortune to build institutions.
"It's for those two reasons that I'm proud to call Magic Johnson a friend," Obama said.

History's greatest monster.

Clearly, Obama hates Jordan, which just proves that he's a racist.


I also like how he puts "hometown" in quotes. I mean, y'all know his real hometown is Kenyatown.

Frederick: Micheal Jordan is not notable outside of basketball.

Earvin "Magic" Johnson is notable outside of basketball as a savvy businessman.

On the court Jordan is the most overrated player of all time.  If I were to pick any player from any time to begin a team I wouldnt start with Jordan.

/also Jordan is nowhere near as liked among peers as Magic

Constantly got calls in his favor and travelled all over the court.  And Space Jam is a true piece of shiat.

You see, a really cool mother would have brought back a baggie of "MJ".

MBK: Frederick: Those are compelling counter arguments.

Explain how he is overrated.

Don't say "Well, no one liked him, he was a dick teammate"

He was.  He'd be the first to admit it.  But you don't have to be liked by your peers to be a great player.  Who gives a shiat if the opposing center doesn't like you?  Who cares if their 2nd string point guard thinks you are a jerk.

Also, why would MJ care if he wasn't recognized outside of basketball?  He made his money in basketball, why should he go do something he isn't familiar with?  That is like saying "Tiger Woods isn't recognized outside of golf".


Jordan is the most overrated basketball player of all time. He cheated on his wife and was bad at baseball. He never hosted a tv show and didn't own his own theater chain. His peers never invited him over for Thanksgiving and did I mention he was bald? If I could pick any player in history to start a team around, I would only pick him second, not first. And that is why Michael Jackson is the worst basketball player in history.
