    Michael Jordan 86-90 vs 95-98

    OK, Jordan went through 3 different stages.

    the first being the ascention into legendary status from 86-90

    the second being his prime in which IMO we can all agree were his GOD like years making him the GOAT

    the third being the end of MJ from 95-98 which was still incredible

    My question is between his incredible 86-90 run VS the end MJ that was more post up mid range with more iq, smarter defense ..but much less athleticism. who do you take and why?


    NOTE: for stat people**

    The second question is for people who base all their opinions on a player on stats. This topic alone should be enough evidence that numbers aren't all its about in sports when judging talent.. maybe in math class or school. but not in sports. jordans stats from 86-90 were leaps and bounds better than his others. But his best years were from 90-93 (coincidentally his rings came those years too)

    The only impression I got from this thread is that you dont understand stats and asked a question with your mind already made up on the answer, all to spread a cliche that you still havent proven. .. coincidentally? LMFAO

    Says someone who got offended by a post on the internet. Not even directly to you, he insulted a screen name. Technically you are the loser in this scenario

    ^^ this.

    MJ's best years were 1988-1992.

    The numbers pretty much all agree. Which is why I get bored with all the LeBron bashing. They both went through the same struggle, being drafted to poor teams, spending their est ears carrying their team deep into the playoffs only to get beaten by better teams. Eventually, Jordan's team made the right moves and got better. LeBron's didn't and he took matters Ito his own hands.

    Howard is also a better defensive center today than Shaq ever was.

    OP is desperately trying to bring people on board to ignore Kobe's lack of statistical dominance and his insufficiency among his all-time great peers. Nice try.

    MJ had like 10 triple doubles in 11 games in 1989.

    Why do I feel his intent is to insult LeBron by mirroring it towards Jordan?

    Im sorry. How exactly was I suppose to respond to your incorrect assumptions?

    I really am asking because I want to change my persona. Im not trying to bully you, Im trying to highlight how blasphemous you sound to those of us who prefer objective analysis.

    The early Jordan for me.
    With the deepest of regrets I am announcing that I will be leaving Pro Sports Daily. No reason in particular but wanted to thank everyone for a great 6 years here. Lots of great discussion and good poll series as well. Also fun re-drafts. Best of luck to you all in the future.
