Then again, some players from decades past retired before their time because they wanted to go out on top and/or medical advances of their time did not permit their bodies to hold out. Its hard to punish players for retiring sooner.
Slippery slope for me.
2nd best perimeter player on my list.With that belief, you must have Kobe relatively high on your all-time list.
I'm glad he took off them two years, let my Rockets get them two championships
I actually don't think he would've. People forget that Jordan came back in the 95 season, and that the Shaq/Penny Magic beat them, and they didn't even need a 7th game. Now Jordan had just come back and wasn't at 100%, and the Magic did have home court and might not have otherwise, but I'm not going to assume Jordan would've beaten them had he played the full season. They probably would've made the finals in 94, but that Rockets team might've been the best team Jordan ever faced in the finals had he played them, and the Bulls were kind of in a reloading period in general in that "in between period" even outside of Jordan leaving.
Correction his 1995 Playoffs were better then his 1996 1997 and 1998 play off statistics so dont give me he wasn't 100 %

Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.
