It's as close as you can get without actually falling into the Sun. Lastly, this is Pluto. See how far away it is from Mercury, let alone the sun? (Brief aside: eventually Pluto will be downgraded from planetary status to a very, very, very, very large frozen pebble. But it's too soon for me to tell you that, so forget that I said anything.)

"Now, getting back to my point. I hear you've taken to the moniker Baby Jordan. Well, whenever you get too full of yourself, I want you to refer to this diagram. The Sun is Michael Jordan. The planet Mercury is -- no, no, calm down and listen. It's not you. Mercury happens to represent another guy, whom you'll meet casually in passing. His name is Kobe Bryant. Where are you? That's right: you, my friend, are Pluto. Not much of a planet; not much of a player.

I don't think most players would change anything about how they play even if they are told before hand. I mean, let's be honest, the guys who are ball hogs, KNOW they are ball hogs, their ego just won't let them pass, and they justify their ball-hogginess by saying their teams needs them to do it.

That said, letting Magic know that he will get AIDS and telling Bias that he will OD on coke may change something.

Although it's not really a player, I would go back and tell the Rockets front office to trade Ralph Sampson for Clyde Drexler after they took Hakeem in 1984. There was some discussion about this happening, and if had happened, not only would they have reunited the Phi Slamma Jamma stars, but the Rockets would have been dominant players in the Western Conference for more than a decade. That team would have competed with the Celtics and Lakers in the 80s and the Pistons and Bulls in the 90s, and the Rockets would easily have more than two championships.

MJ is clearly the best ever, but he lefts titles & points on the board he could have easily gotten. i think had he known a snot nosed punk like kobe would come along & take advantage of him leaving his championship total at six(not maxing out at 6) he'd have made sure to get 8 or 9

To get an intelligent response that has any relevancy to your point it is highly recommended you take his advice in one area.

i.e. improve grammar or spacing

tbh I think spacing is actually more important than grammar because even with proper grammar one huge blob of a post is hard on the eyes. Making people more likely to ignore or gloss over the post.
