Michael Jordan he is the best basketball player of all time. At least that’s what most experts think. In the fight for the GOAT (best in history) today only places Lebron James, although names like those of Kareem Abdul Jabbar or Wilt Chamberlain should also appear in the short list. Today we present Michael’s ideal quintet, which includes players who agreed with him in his time. No ‘modern’ players from the eighties. Michael is clear that for basketball it is ‘showtime’. This is a quintet:
5 times NBA champion, 3 Finals MVP, 12 times All Star, 9 times in the best quintet in the NBA, 4 times leader in assists and 2 in steals. It dominated the eighties, the time when MJ started.
6 times NBA champion, 6 times MVP of the Finals, 5 MVP of the season, 10 times in the best quintet, 14 times All Star, Best defender, 10 times top scorer in the NBA.
Impossible that MJ did not put his squire Pippen on this list: 6 times NBA champion, 7 times All Star, 3 times in the best quintet, 8 times in the best defensive quintet, leader in steals.
The confirmation that Jordan was very much like the Lakers of the eighties: 3 times NBA champion, 1 time MVP of the Finals.
The man who led the Rockets’ victories during Jordan’s retirement: 2-time NBA champion, 2-time Finals MVP, season MVP, 12-time All Star, 2-time NBA best defender.
