Michael Jordan is not a true basketball player

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

He had Scotty Pippin, who was probably doping. Plus the guy only won NBA championships. Did he win any college championships? NO. Any streetball? DON'T THINK SO. Sorry guys, you are morons if you think MJ was good at basketball.

OP is telling the truth. MJ is a much better baseball player, golfer and gambler.

Off the point, but Jordan won two gold medals -- one of which was in '84 when the olympic team was a bunch of college kids. Not too shabby for a non-cyclist.
