No need to get testy, little grasshopper....

Clean up some of your stats, will ya....

MJ scored 63 on the Boston Celtics on 5/20/'86

Pippen did not lead them to a title in MJs retirement year. They were eliminated in 7 to the New York Knicks.

Besides that, alot of your argument is silly. If you're in college, you should know comparing the 2 is impossible at this stage. You argue with emotion, not facts.

Like I said before, I didn't want to diss anyones favorite player but you keep at it to the point it has to be said.

Making comparisons on a dunk is absurd....Making statements like "everybody knows Kobe's a superior ballhandler" doesn't make it so cuz you said it......
Comparing Malones' average from the Jazz with Stockton to MJs with nobody is equally absurd.

You equate scoring being down with great defense when guys are missing shots left & right with nobody on them...
You say Kobe is a better 3 point shooter & he should be with all the 3s he takes. MJ heard that one too before the 91/92 Finals with Portland when they said the only thing MJ couldn't do was hit the trey. Game 1....First half....6 treys....End of discussion....

You say you've seen their stats.....Get new glasses....& sue your eye doctor.....
