The photo-realistic Mike is a deal breaker! I woulda copped 2 pairs just on the strength of using that image. Holds a lot of significance.

Check yourself. I don't play like that. We're all entitled to our own opinion. I happen to like air soles in my Nike shoe.@JahmadeJohn

These are really nice!
Throw a full length air sole in them and I'm in!
These are CRAZY! Luv 'em!!! The color schemes will have the uninitiated sleep on these. But I won't. ;) Let just say it pays to do the "knowledge".

Wow! I'm really starting to think you really were born in the nineties. Smh. You couldn't have been watching the NBA during MJ's era. You're talking about Pippen like he was a HOF his whole career. The other guys are right. You need to do your homework. No one is afraid to say someone is better than MJ. The problem is that we can't legitimately say it, yet. We can't go off of what these current players MIGHT do. Either they're doing what MJ was or not. LeBron just got his 1st title. It could very well be his last with the way OKC is playing. He's moving further into the back side of his career. By the 10 year mark, Jordan already had THREE straight titles! Not to mention scoring titles, MVPs -both league and championships, defensive player of the year, etc. You can't be serious. People haven't just started making comparisons with this current crop of players. It's been going on since Jordan was moving into the tail-end of his career. Some of the best guards were playing during Jordan's era, like: Magic, Isaiah, Stockton, KJ, GP, Doc Rivers, Clyde Drexler, Rolando Blackman, Mark Jackson, Reggie theus, Reggie Miller, Grant Hill, Vince Carter, John Starks, Dumars, etc. Have you ever heard of the guys??? I'm mean, the greats before and during his time called MJ the best that ever played the game. What else do you need???

Noone is saying MJ did it by himself. No, one person can win championships, all on their own. MJ made the players around him better. The '91 Bulls team that won, was a team that grew up with MJ as their inspirational leader. The chip teams that followed were carefully modified (with additions to the core team) to keep the Bulls at the top of the NBA. MJ was not only a supernatural offensive threat, but also a defensive nightmare. He would drop 40 pts. on you at will, and would shutdown the guy guarding him at the other end. In addition, he played some the best "help" defense in the business. He had an uncanny ability to "cheat off" of the guy he was guarding to get a steal, strip the ball or block the shot of the person with the ball. For at least the first four or five seasons, Jordan WAS the team. Check the stats. But like all great teams, you have to have other players step up and become a force in order to win it all. Pippen became "Pippen" because of MJ. Earlier in Pippen's career, he would struggle with MJ out of the game. After finally coming into his own, MJ and Pippen became the "dynamic duo" (along with Horace Grant) and proceeded to dominate the NBA for years to come. You definitely had to fully experience the Jordan era to truly see the impact that MJ had on the game and how his shoes gave off an aura of total invincibility. You couldn't touch Jordan- period!
MJ has set the bar extremely high. There will always be very good or even great players, but none will have the impact that MJ had on the game (remember Detroit's "Jordan rules of the late eighties?). MJ dominated on every level and multiple positions were adversely affected by him being on the court. He created havoc at both ends of the court as evidence of the video clip above. Many of those plays ended in points the other end of the court. It's kinda funny to watch how all those highlight films of MJ scoring, started with him playing defense. Think about this - Kobe had to copy MJ's game before he was able to elevate to level he achieved (irritates me to no end. Smh). The thing another player could do to one up MJ, would be to eclipse his record of consecutive 'chips - which is no small feat. The game and players became watered down AFTER MJ's era, not during. Since then, athletes have jumped into the league as unrefined and unpolished players. Once illegal moves are now the norm. These players of today woul've been eaten Alive during Mj's era. Oh, and for the record, Dominique Wilkins was collecting scoring titles at the same time MJ was playing. Nique's Atlanta Hawks were big rivals for MJ's Chicago Bulls. They had epic battles. The had to surpass the Hawks before moving on to teams like Detroit. ;)
MJ played against and dominated the best players the NBA had to offer. A lot of those top players went on to be hall of famers. MJ was just that much better. MJ met up with Magic(arguably the best guard in the game, at that time) in '91 and proved to the world that hewas the best player in the game by crushing Magic and his Lakers in 4 games to 1 Championship victory. At the same time, continuing to dominate the shoe game after changing it in the mid eighties. Sneakers were never looked at in the same way after the first Jordans were released.
