Man what are you even trying to say
1) I didn't even bring Kobe up. What the hell does Kobe have to do with GP, and the 96 finals ?
2) My point was that Gary Payton and sonics held Jordan to his worst finals performance for a series by far. They pushed the Bulls to six games. Had GP been covering Jordan the entire time, the chances of the sonics winning that series goes up ten fold to me due to what he did covering Jordan in games four through six.
