The Bulls won their 1st NBA championship in 1991 by defeating a Los Angeles Lakers squad led by mega-star guard Magic Johnson (PLAYING WITHOUT KAREEM ABDUL JABBAR) within the Championship game. The Los angeles lakers won the very first game because of Michael jordan attempting to guard Magic Johnson by hisself for the whole game on the Bulls’ home floor before the Chicago bulls stormed back and won the following four games due to Hero Scottie Pippen taking up the duties of guarding Magic Johnson from Jordan.

But, his career straight out of high school has taken various twists and turns with various well-documented off-court troubles, however his game has always shown steady progress in spite of various distractions.

Bio On Michael Jordan…Michael Jordan Is Overrated

MICHAEL JORDAN COLLEGE CAREER…WHEN JORDAN WAS GETTING ELIMINATED FROM THE NCAA TOURNAMENT BY AMATUERS…KOBE BRYANT AT THE VERY SAME AGE WAS AN NBA 1ST TEAM ALL-STAR AND BY AGE 20 WAS LEADING THE LAKERS TO NBA TITLES TAKING ON PROFESSIONALS…CLEARLY AT AGE 19..KOBE BRYANT WAS A FAR SUPERIOR BASKETBALL PLAYER THAN JORDAN. DUE TO WEAK COMPETITION AT THE SHOOTING GUARD POSITION…JORDAN HAD IT MUCH EASIER SCORING OVER WEAK OPPONENTS LIKE 6’3 JOHN STARKS, 6’2 VINNIE JOHNSON, 6’0 KEVIN JOHNSON, CRAIG EHLO, RANDY WITTMAN, DANNY AINGE, 6’3 JOE DUMARS, 6’3 BYRON SCOTT, 6’3 JEFF HORNACES ETC.

MICHAEL JORDAN COLLEGE CAREER…Michael Jordan’s success, just like the Michael Jackson’s, Bruce Lee or Barack Obama’s, had as much to do with timing, than it did with skills. Michael jordan was not the only super sportsperson of his time, he was not the foremost charismatic, and he didn’t smash all the records. What Jordan did nonetheless that his contemporaries didn’t is acknowledge the moment, get hold of the opportunity and situate himself in such a manner that all converges toward him and incorporate him within time and space. MICHAEL JORDAN COLLEGE CAREER…Michael Jackson established that Motown twenty five was his moment to shine, Obama recognized that he had to capitalize on the Bush-era and usher a fresh message, Bruce Lee realized that time was seasoned to bring in a new genre, and likewise Jordan was wise enough to brand himself at a time where sport, business and also the media were converging at the same place.

MICHAEL JORDAN COLLEGE CAREER…THE HALL OF FAME SPEECH…Jordan’s Hall of Fame talk was the Exxon Valdez of speeches. It had been, by turns, rude, resentful and flammable.

MICHAEL JORDAN COLLEGE CAREER…Only about half of the teams in the League have in reality won an NBA Championship which suggests that they haven’t been doing something correct on management’s end since the franchise started. Out of the 17 teams that have actually earned the championship, 8 teams only have 1 championship whereas six have four or fewer. The Chicago bulls are the team in the middle of the pack with six NBA Championships in which all of them came after the League passed the “NO FLAGRANT FOUL RULES” in 1991 when the Chicago bulls had Michael jordan who is perhaps the 2nd or 3rd best shooting guard to ever play the game behind Kobe Bryant. MICHAEL JORDAN COLLEGE CAREER…The last two teams on the list of champions are the Lakers (sixteen titles) and the Celtics (seventeen championships) these 2 teams must have been doing something right over the years in order to acquire more than half of all the League Titles ever and I am gonna explain it to you right now.

How To Meet Michael Jordan

MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES

MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…Stemming from facing “CUPCAKES” and weak matchups like 6’3 John Starks, 6’3 Hersey Hawkins, Bryon”8ppg”Russell, and 6’3 Jeff Hornacek etc., 6’6 Jordan has the illusion of being one of the best defensive basketball players of all time, he was also proven to be a one trick pony. MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…He left the NBA in the 93-94 season for a unsucessful run at professional baseball, As the NBA added “No Handchecking” Rules and Regulations in 1994, Jordan was enticed to go back to the Chicago bulls in 95 to guide the squad to the 1996 championship – a title they managed to hold on to for two more years due to the ‘Watering Down’ of the league with NBA Expansion along with rule changes like “No Handchecking”.

MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…At the end of the day, my verdict is obvious: There will in no way be another Jordan, an even larger proclamation than this…THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER KOBE BRYANT…in style, game, LEVEL OF COMPETITON, AND MATCHUPS, Kobe Bryant, who MOST hate to acknowledge, is really the best SHOOTING GUARD EVER. MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…If one really wished to concentrate on the four parts that defined Jordan, Kobe Bryant is absolutely the man who has five parts that outlined him…the highlights, for sponsors and the NBA, it his marketability, and for experts, it is titles and accolades….but the final element that separates Kobe from Michael jordan is the fact that Kobe ‘MATCHES UP WITH” and “DOMINATES” the era of the BIGGER, STRONGER, FASTER, HYPER- ATHLETIC SHOOTING GUARD…THE LIST OF ALLSTAR AND HALL OF FAME MATCHUPS THAT KOBE HAS FACED THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER DWARFS JORDAN’S…Can anyone out there name a great player outside of Clyde Drexler that Jordan Matched up with that was truly Dominant?…could you ever utter in a million years that Clyde Drexler is really a a better basketball player than 6’8 250lb 30ppg Lebron James…or 6’10 30 ppg Kevin Durant…or D Wade…or 6’7 235lb Paul Pierce…or 6’8 Tracy Mcgrady…or 6’7 Vince Carter…or 6’6 Ray Allen…or Manu Ginobili..or Brandon Roy..or Rip Hamilton..or Allen Iverson et cetera. et cetera…plus defending players like Deron Williams, Jason Kidd, Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Rajon Rondo..etc. et cetera…..MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES

MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…By the time Kobe bryant was fully involved within the Mj comparison, he by now had three championships, but had no personal numbers. I remember telling to all or any who would take note that Kobe bryant needs to get far from Shaq so he may put up individual statistics. MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…You see Jordan began with Individual statistics and then went on winning titles. To carve his path, Kobe bryant had to build his very own resume, and for that he outworked, outhustled, and outperformed Shaq for the control of the Lakers which eventually led to Shaq’s jealous and livid exile from Los angeles, and went on a scoring spree against the best class of Shooting Guards in League History ala Dywane Wade, Tmac, Ray Allen, Allen Iverson, Vince Carter, Paul Pierce, Brandon Roy, Michael Redd, Rip Hamilton, Manu Ginobili, Lebron James et cetera. that further confirmed his status as the only shooting guard to ever be thought of as superior than Mj. MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…His scoring eruption, combined along with his improved defense matching up against Superstar scoring machines like 30ppg Lebron, Wade, Tmac, Iverson, Melo, Durant while guarding speedsters like Derrick Rose, Chris Paul, Rondo, Deron Williams, and Russell Westbrook propelled him to a level where some truly and truthfully consider him to be greater than Jordan. MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…To accomplish that level, Kobe bryant did not care that he made his jealous enemies angry, he did not hesitate to mimic the moves of talented greats like Dr.J, Jerry West, Magic, Hakeem, Duncan, and Oscar Robertson, and he tirelessly worked in the off season on his game and body, and eventually took a “take no prisoners” attitude in the process.

MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…Another retirement. Really? Michael retired again in 1999 but could not live without playing basketball. Comeback for a second time! He came back to basketball again in 2001 by joining another club: “Washington Wizards”. Jordan with the Wizards proved again that he could not lead a team to an above .500 record without Pippen. MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…Some business involvement During his career Mj took part in a a small number of businesses. For example, Nike’s Air Jordan sneakers are incredibly popular all across the globe.

MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…When an opposing player has a good basketball game, the majority of players engage in a shootout to outdo him; not Kobe, simillar to Jordan, he not only wants to outdo you, he also wants to shut you down. MICHAEL JORDAN ARTICLES…Kobe bryant doesn’t merely take the challenge; he also tries to punish you for challenging him. This approach is atypical in today’s NBA, which is why Kobe bryant is such a unique monster.

10 Facts About Michael Jordan

KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN

KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…Is Kobe Bryant superior than Jordan? Based on the calibre of competition Kobe bryant takes on on a night by night basis as opposed to Mj, there is no question in my view that if you put Kobe bryant in the 90′s, teamed with Pippen and Phil Jackson, that Kobe would have simply scored over a 100 points and won ten straight championships facing the pathetic competition Jordan took on ala Craig Ehlo, John Starks, Randy Wittman, Danny Ainge, 6’0 Kevin Johnson, 6’2 Vinnie Johnson, 6’3 Joe Dumars etc. etc.. I still think Kobe’s defense is way under-rated taking into account the fact that he is 6’6 and defends faster, quicker players on the perimeter ala Rose, Paul, Rondo, Westbrook, and Iverson while playing on a surgically repaired knee in 2011. KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…I furthermore think that Kobe makes his teammates better than what they are by taking alot of pressure off of them. Case in point…Kobe had the Lakers with a roster filled with role players ala Rony Turiaf, Luke Walton, Trevor Ariza, Chris Mihm, and Derrick Fisher on top of the western conference exclusive of Shaq or Gasol on the team. It is a valid fact that Mj never won or lead a squad to a winning record without Scottie Pippen; I contend that Pippen in fact made Jordan much better by allowing Mj to take on the Role players while Pippen defended the Barkley’s, Bird’s, Worthy’s, and Dominique Wilkin’s of the world while coming to Jordan’s rescue against Magic Johnson and Clyde Drexler in the NBA Finals. KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…Allow us to keep in mind that Mj never lead a team to a winning record and was 1-9 in 10 playoff games without Pippen whereas Pippen lead the Chicago bulls to 55 wins, a playoff series victory with the Bulls, and led the Blazers to a Conference Finals appearance without Jordan, not the other way around, says a lot about Pippen and how way underrated he really was. Kobe on the other hand lead the Lakers to winning records and four playoff wins without Shaq,Gasol, or Fisher on the squad…Kobe bryant had the Lakers on top of the Western Conference without Gasol or Shaq…and Kobe has three finals appearances and 2 NBA Championships without Shaq. KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…This is certainly why it’s a fair statement to say that Kobe Bryant is without doubt the Greatest Shooting Guard To Ever Play The Game Of Basketball…and no one comes close!! Not even Mj!!


KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…THE HALL OF FAME SPEECH…Mj had decided that this was the proper night to list all the ways everyone sitting in front of him had pissed him off over the past 30 years: Dean Smith, Doug Collins, Jerry Reinsdorf, Pat Riley, Isiah Thomas, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, George Gervin and Jeff Van Gundy. KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…It absolutely was the only one-man roast in Hall of Fame history. Only very little of it had been amusing.

KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…After years of praising Mj and questioning what made him so unique, we had to wait for his Hall of fame speech. There Mj exposed that part of his character that set him apart. He ultimately confessed his personal mind games and also the core of what drove him. KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…This was the answer we’ve all asked for years ago; when the media were looking for the next Mj, instead of looking for the college, the height, the dunks or the bald head, they should have looked at character. Now that Mj at long last revealed it, the media blasted him for what they labeled an arrogant speech acting big, bad, and bold, because he called out a marginal role player like Bryon “8ppg” Russell and not Allen Iverson who crossed him, broke his ankles, and stuck 40+ points on him and his team while telling Jordan that he did not need to respect him, Jordan’s over-hyped competitive drive appears to only be prevalent when discussing role players like Bryon”8ppg” Russell…we at long last heard the secret from the guy. KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…I am sure that while many were criticizing, somebody in Inglewood, California was fastidiously and studiously taking notes and recognizing that at the end of the day whenever people say “JORDAN” there’s Craig Ehlo, John Starks, and Bryon Russell and when people say “KOBE” there’s LEBRON, WADE, TMAC, VINCE CARTER, MELO, PIERCE, RAY ALLEN, AND KEVIN DURANT…etc. and the rest.

KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…Today Mj can be described as part-owner and Administrative Member of Basketball Operations of the Charlotte Bobcats in North Carolina. He is divorced from his spouse Jaunita; the couple has 3 full-grown children, Jeffrey, Marcus and Jasmine. KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…It’s reported that Juanita received a $168 million settlement, making it the biggest celebrity divorce settlement in history on public record, based on celebrity newspapers.

KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…THE HALL OF FAME SPEECH…Had Jordan been in his shoes, he’d have said, “Hey, Steve Kerr! Remember when I kicked your ass in that brawl?” Michael jordan owes a roomful of apologies. However it will never happen. Previous to his second comeback — with the Washington Wizards — Michael jordan and his agent, David Falk, denied it, said it wasn’t true, virtually said the media was smoking something. KOBE VS MICHAEL JORDAN…Then, after a month of lies, Jordan confessed it absolutely was all correct. The reporter he lied to saw him saw him within the locker space before his initial game back and said, “You wanna say something to me, maybe?”

In 1995, it was yet closer, Jerry Stackhouse was the same height as Mj ( 6 ft 6 in), played for the identical university (North Carolina), played at the same position (Shooting Guard), and on top of it, he was in addition chosen 3rd in his draft class.

ETC. ETC…..HERE’S THE PROOF…MICHAEL JORDAN TOOK ON THE CUPCAKES AND KOBE FACES THE SUPERSTARS PART 1-5

Kobe Versus Jordan Greatest Games Comparisons Part 1-4

GET THE PICTURE!!!

MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…THE HALL OF FAME SPEECH…”I wouldn’t wish to be you guys if I had to,” he said as they squirmed in their seats. MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…He even mocked his own brothers, calling them maybe 5-foot-5 and 5-6. Actually, they are about 5-8 and 5-9. Michael was the one blessed with the height gene, not the tact one.

MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…One of the foremost controversial subjects for basketball fans is whether Wilt Chamberlain is the greatest basketball player ever. His amazing statistics are unparalleled, however the greater argument against him is that he “only” won 2 championships. MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…So, there are many basketball players who arguably rival Chamberlain for the label of greatest basketball player of all time, including Bill Russell, his lifetime on-court nemesis, who won a mind-numbing eleven titles and often beat up on Chamberlain’s teams in the playoffs. There’s of course the dominant Kobe Bryant who who has 5 championships and in todays game put up an incredible Chamberlain-esque 81 points and outscored the NBA finalist Dallas Mavericks 62 to 61 in only three quarters of play..There is in addition Mj, who earned six championships and won 5 NBA regular season and six Championship Finals Most valuable player titles; Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who also won 6 titles and is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer and Earvin “Magic” Johnson, who claimed 5 championships and was a lot more of an all-around player than Chamberlain.

MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…At the time Kobe bryant was fully involved in the Jordan comparison, he by now had three titles, but had no personal numbers. I recall telling to all who would listen that Kobe bryant needs to get faraway from Shaq so he may put up individual statistics. MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…You see Jordan started with Individual statistics and then went on winning championships. To carve his path, Kobe bryant had to build his very own resume, and for that he outworked, outhustled, and outperformed Shaq for the control of the Lakers which in the end led to Shaq’s jealous and angry exile from L.A, and went on a scoring spree against the best category of Shooting Guards in League History ala Dywane Wade, Tmac, Ray Allen, Allen Iverson, Vince Carter, Paul Pierce, Brandon Roy, Michael Redd, Rip Hamilton, Manu Ginobili, Lebron James et cetera. that further confirmed his standing as the only shooting guard to ever be thought of as greater than Jordan. MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…His scoring explosion, combined with his superior defense matching up against Superstar scoring machines like 30ppg Lebron, Wade, Tmac, Iverson, Melo, Durant while guarding speedsters like Derrick Rose, Chris Paul, Rondo, Deron Williams, and Russell Westbrook excelled him to a height where some actually and justly consider him to be superior than Jordan. MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…To realize that level, Kobe didn’t care that he made his jealous enemies angry, he did not hesitate to duplicate the moves of other greats like Dr.J, Jerry West, Magic, Hakeem, Duncan, and Oscar Robertson, and he tirelessly worked in the off season on his game and body, and eventually took a “take no prisoners” attitude in the process.

MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…You see there are four components that defined Jordan: For the media, it is the numbers, for fans it’s the highlights, for sponsors and the NBA, it’s marketability, and for experts, it’s championships and accolades. Jordan was able to incorporate these entire elements successfully in one package, which made him the most well-liked and in demand athlete on the globe. He was good for corporate America, good for white America, great for Black America, great for the League, and depending on who you speak to, good for the game as well. MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…Since all those four parts were found in 1 person, every new Michael jordan was dubbed the next according to one or another element. MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…If a player sells, he is the next Jordan, if another scores fifty in a game, the next Michael jordan, and so on…As a consequence of tape delay and very little corporate sponsorship and inadequate media hype, few folks acknowledge that Michael jordan was simply a mere clone of Dr. J and David Thompson.

MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…THE HALL OF FAME SPEECH…Michael jordan owes a roomful of apologies. However it will by no means come to pass. He on one occasion said, “You recognize you do not get no apologies in this business.” He was like that Japanese World War II soldier they found hiding in a cave in Guam 27 years after the Japanese surrendered. MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…The only difference is, Jordan won! What good is victory if you never realize the war is over? This is how Mj actually is, I just never thought he’d let the world see it. MICHAEL JORDAN FAILURE QUOTE…His old Bulls’ assistant coach, Johnny Bach, said “This guy is a killer. He is a cold-blooded assassin. It’s not enough for him to beat you. He wants you dead.”
