    I miss Digital Underground. If that guy hadn’t lost his mind, they could have done a lot more. Kinda like God Lives Underwater–if the lead singer hadn’t died, they could have made a lot more than four albums.

    While I don’t think Lebron has achieved Jordanesque status, I have the sneaking suspicion that MJ is definitely at risk for becoming a Reagan-like mythical figure for Players (& Fans) of a Certain Age.

    * Jordan once went an entire season w/out ever missing a shot!
    * Jordan’s sweat could heal cuts and mend sprained ankles!
    * For three months during the ’93 season, the Bulls only played with four players at a time, & went 18-3
    * Jordan once played for both teams at the same time during a scrimmage, scored 83 points for each team, & both teams won!

    Also, this series lookin’ to be a quick one. I’ve really enjoyed watching the Mavs during this postseason, but if last night is any indication, Heat in 5 might be an optimistic outcome for the Dallas squad.

    The difference between Jordan and most every other player is will power.

    It takes more than talent and skill and knowledge. The other ingredient is related to personality and is more rare than all the others.

    dgun:

    Definitely agree w/ you re: MJ’s will to win. As he demonstrated during his Hall of Fame induction speech a few years ago, that desire to be the absolute best has not diminished much over time. I don’t think there’s anyone in the game to day who has anything close to his combination of talent & passion — there’s surely no one in South Beach who fits this description.

    I also agree that MJ was easily the best player to take the court during my lifetime.

    But I just cringe anytime anyone makes the transition from great to mythic — as we’ve seen with Reagan, I think we do anyone a disservice when we stop seeing them as human & begin viewing them as archetypes.

    That said, you give me the chance to put the ball in anyone’s hand for a final shot w/ the game on the line, MJ is my first pick — and there’s no 2nd choice.
