is Michael Jordan overrated ??

Jeezyfan4everJeezyfan4ever Posts: 1,034 ✭✭✭✭
Okay...before ya blast me hear me out. Most people see Jordan as the "best there was, the best there is, and the best there ever will be". Now I'm not saying he isn't the best basketball player to play the game, but it seems like people put him on this pedestal and proclaim him to be lightyears better than other All-Time greats(Magic, Russell, Kobe, etc.)

Is it basketball blasphemy to say Jordan is overrated?
Is it even possible for the GOAT to be overrated?

    He will only be the best ever if players keep thinking they can't be better. He is one of the best players ever, but if the world last another thousand years someone will be better

    Well he was underpaid for most of his career . He sacrificed being highly paid to win but to me he was overrated doesn't mean he wasn't a great player but greatest ever no .

    To take it even further Mike transcended the game of Basketball. He dominated the game on both ends of the floor. Every game he wanted to kill your will and pride. This nigga was 40 still putting 20 a game. Yall need to stop Jordan was greatness and the GOAT.

    c/s....there are only a handful of players that did this Wilt, Kareem, Magic/Larry(debatable but they helped carry the league prior to MJ coming in), Micheal, Shaq, Kobe/Lebron(again debatable especially wit Kobe but him and KG helped open the flood gates for niggas to make the leap from HS to the pros), and Wilt and Kareem had it easy cuz they were clearly the best and biggest guys on the court....whereas Jordan dominated as a guard for a long period of time....since no wing player has surpassed his accomplishments it's easy to see why he is considered the GOAT

    I'd probably agree he was at least a little overrated if there weren't so many people trying to discredit him and argue against his greatness. Half the time you hear people heaping praise onto MJ, it's the result of responding to people who forgot or weren't old enough to know how good MJ really was.

    Put it this way, Kareem and Bill are just as accomplished as he is, they just didn't have the timing or marketing of MJ. Niggas need to stop acting like Nike's branding isn't why MJ is who he is today.

    This is an example of what I'm talking about. MJ didn't get good because he had Nike's branding. He got Nike's branding because he was good. He was already a star and already seen as one of the best in the league before Nike's compain really went full swing. Yeah, MJ is a household name because of that merchandising, but that has nothing to do with the discussion about his greatness on the court. When people make their arguments about why he's the GOAT they name his accomplishments, his BBall IQ, his desire to win at all costs. Nobody's running around talking about "MJ is the greatest because he sold thousands of shoes." The marketing is why people who don't follow BBall think MJ is the greatest. It has nothing to do with why people who actually watch the sport think that way.
