and next you're going to say a player shouldn't be rated by how many rings he has in relationship to g.o.a.t ? funny thing about that is, ALL of the players that have been labeled the g.o.a.t. ALL have multiple rings. revisit this conversation 10 years down the line when we see what lebron would have done, shitt, i could even see if this was about Kobe.

And 200 years ago, everyone got around on horses and people wrote letters to each other.

And how exactly was the NBA different in Jordan's day that makes it impossible to compare him to other players?

If you weren't there, you'll never know. Such is life. 20 years from now, when your nephew is gushing about the newest best player, you'll understand what I mean.

That only means so much though. I mean, no one here has a sense of what the NBA was like when Wilt Chamberlain played, but I'd say he's still considered pretty damn good. Bill Russell's last season was 1969; how many posters on HH do you think were legitimately old enough (not just alive and like 6 years old) to appreciate what the NBA was like and what kind of player Russell was? Heck, how many of the talking heads and analysts you see on TV are old enough? Am I supposed to just concede that Jordan > Lebron because I was only a child when Jordan was at his best? Nah, that seems like BS to me.

No, I'm not saying you have to concede anything, except perhaps that there is no "right" answer and that different people will have different opinions based on their own experience. Not saying you can't have the conversation, just saying that it's the kind of thing best discussed in the bar or barbershop and not be approached with any kind of pseudo-academic rigor.

i fully agree, which is why you're allowed to post a pic of someone else with a girl while holding a bottle of Grey Goose CLAIMING its YOU, knowing you're just some pimple face kid that is great with numbers.

Yeah, that makes sense.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Qaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
