I completely understand that it just doesn't matter. I am not disrespecting him I am just not fantasizing about him and extending undue accolades on him. He wasn't even that much better than the best players of his time and probably wouldn't have won a single championship without Pippen. Basketball players aren't the best athletes like a third of the NBA players aren't even coordinated enough to dribble and drive while defended for more than a few seconds without fumbling all over themselves.

Jordan isn't close athletically to guys like Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders. Which doesn't even matter because fighting another human being can't be compared to throwing a ball around as far as what is more impressive. I'm willing to change my opinion though when you can show me several examples in nature where the alpha male of a group is determined with a game of basketball and not a fight.

Anderson has fought in multiple weight classes and finishes most of his opponents. GSP fights in one weight class and hardly ever finishes anyone. Added to the fact that Anderson has the record win streak in the UFC, they aren't even close. Objectively Anderson is the better fighter, GSP is a better all around athlete and martial artist. And I freaking hate Anderson Silva so damn much.

ha! anyone remember the Boz? they talked about him being great for about 5 seconds. He didn't know Bo.



Met him a couple of years after he quit the juice. He looked like a welter weight.

Seems like he had a decent football career but MMA was his true calling
