His game was already very mature at his age.
If scoring much means the best player how come MJ was not crowned as the best in 1987 and 1988 when he averaged 37 / 35 ppg?
Because basketball is much more than being a fancy scorer.
even though it was debatable with media outlets and fans, it was widely know as early as 1987 among players and coaches that michael jordan was the best singular player in the league.
to debate with NTers that have extreme salt level content for one player or another is useless. think about some of the things you read in the past few pages regarding why curry is better than lebron james:
curry is a better defensive player than lebron
because curry shoots the ball better that makes him better than lebron
posting ridiculous videos of lebron playing defense and literally 90 percent of the videos plays have nothing to do with lebrons perceived lack of defensive prowess.
bring up lebrons 2-4 finals record as if it matters within context of the question.
posting up ridiculous stats like who eliminated the most 50 win teams
say pass first point guards dont win championships
not even willing to give credit where its due, talking lebron down to the point to saying that the only thing is good at is being athletic
giving dellavadova and mosgov full credit for why the cavs were up 2-1 after 3 games in the series and calling LBJs stats "hollow"
while i have seen a few relevant points made by a few NTers, those same NTers use these same asinine talking points and it shows that they truly have hate in their blood for lebron and in addition have no real understanding of the game of basketball
