"Barkley, Ewing, Malone and Dr j were great players, however I don't see anyone calling them the greatest"
that is not what you asked. you said: "Does winning Championships have a bearing on what makes the greats, great?"
i simply answered your question. dont go moving the goalposts after the fact
and lbron has hit a ton of clutch shots in his career

the fact is, lebron's game doesnt resemble jordan's, and that isnt a slight to lebron. he plays a completely different position. he is closer to magic in style than he is to jordan, but even that is a poor comparison
everyone needs to stop. jordan is not the be all end all of the bna history., its bleeping silly
and of course jordan had bad finals games. that's absurd

This guy is the ultimate definition of a choke artist and flops like a fish out of water when someone pressures him...
He's a joke & won't be remembered as anything besides a flash in a pan..
His four MVP's are a joke and so is he... /thread
