It's just about giving credit to the old guys. For the love of God, the NBA would be DEFUNCT if it wasn't for the revival of it by Magic and Bird. Isn't that worth a little props for two " decent" players?
West is all time Mr. Clutch in my book. He hit so many big shots against stronger competition then Jordan did, however Jordan's arsenal was stronger. MJ had the jumper, the fade a way, and the post up ( stronger then West's) operating at a higher level then West.
