"kareem mj" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed

"Skip Shannon. Let's go. NBA analyst Kenny Smith maybe waves this week when he not only ranked Lebron outside of his top five of all time, but he said that Lebron is ranked ten. Kenny attributed it to how scoring is now easier, and it's hard to evaluate today's game against the previous rates. So Shannon are you surprised that Kenny Rank Lebron Celo? It hard to evaluate current players gift the grace of the past, but somehow he did it. I don't know how to do that. He probably bear hard. You don't skip were. I don't think there's a fan. Or a expert that says Lebron James is currently the ten best player all time in history of the NBA. I just find that hard to believe. I is tied for the fourth most MVP's the second most final MVP's the third most all star Games, the most all the NBA the most NBA first team six times defensive play a six off defensive teams. And can't mentioned. podcast he got. Kareem MJ Oscar Bill Russell will. Shack Magic Bird all top ten. But Lebron. If the Tampa Best Player of that group. He's talking about well. It's easier to score. Is that Lebron does? Ron Rebounds he assists the ball and he's like well. Any of those players shack played in the area era, Shagman as brave pilots.

"How are you joy great man? That was fantastic. It was like it was amazing. It really was relieved. Parts of that and learn new things about the dynasty an does have everyone do it together. It was great. It really was great. I have so many thoughts I wrote notes for you know the entire couple of hours. It's I'm prone to do that and You know let me. Just start with this. A lot of people are going to naturally move into. The you know. Michael's way better than Lebron. Let me just say folks if anybody watching or listening to this show if any of you are ever the second best person on the planet at something. I'm not going to take a shot at you. Lebron does more good things with the basketball in his hand than I've ever seen Michael's probably the most relentless player. But if you're number two in the world congratulations. I tip my cap the fact that we only now debate. Mj and Lebron. We don't we don't debate. Mj and Akim MJ and Kareem MJ and magic MGM bird. We don't we don't even debate. We don't even go there. That tells you the greatness not only of Michael but I've Lebron let me let me repeat something I said. Last week that it was amplified. I knew about it and I watched it and it was worse than I thought. But the fact that this bull's team to best American sports team of my life won six titles with all the chaos with the front office. They were fighting their front office. I already had a reservoir of respect for Phil Jackson he is balancing a GM that represents some players some players that resent the owner. Jerry Reinsdorf which I told you last week is the cheap guy. The baseball loving cheap guy. He won't give Scottie Pippen. A new deal. I just couldn't live with myself. Mj carried the League and halfway through it he wasn't being paid. He was carrying the whole league. Forget the Bulls Eye. It's just remarkable. How Phil Jackson in Mj's focus and fills just moxie? An intelligence could balance. What was a chaotic mess? Virtually every dynasty of my life has great ownership or great management. You know Pat Riley with Miami in the heat or the Rudy family or you know craft and Bella Chakma. Tom Brady didn't have the deal with nonsense all day. Remarkable what they overcame it also and you may find this strange. It made me think more than once about Russell Westbrook. This is why Michael Loves Russell. Westbrook Russell Westbrook plays heart every night every night. No possessions off and I know you think I hate Westbrook. No he drives me crazy. But there's a lot of Michael Jordan with Westbrook when you watch Michael Jordan and Jordan has said Westbrook's favourite current player. Sometimes westbrook will do things and you're like are you nuts. Slow down shift down. But then I watched Michael Jordan last night and Michael Jordan and his second year got hurt and the doctor said you can play on it but if you get hurt again your career is over and Michael held a grudge against his owner because his owner was like. I don't think you should do this. I don't think we should take a risk. Michael I wanted to go Michael. Are you crazy? You're willing to risk your career to sit it out. You're not a title team. I thought to myself Michael. Low crazy in him and Westbrook's got some crazy in him but in a world where players take the night off and load management. I gotta I gotTa be honest with you. I came out of that thing. I'm like props to Westbrook old school. I get I get it. He's not my favorite player. But I respect the hell out of Westbrook something else that jumped out to me. Can we acknowledge now? Now people like me forties and fifties who grew up with the Bulls have always known the Michael Stories not linear. He didn't win without Phil Jackson and he didn't win without Scottie Pippen. He was just unbelievable. But now a lot of the mythology you can all acknowledge. Now the twenty and thirty year olds. Who didn't see it live. Michael didn't do anything without pippen and Phil Jackson. And you can think to thought simultaneously. You can think with one side of your brain michaels. The best ever and then think but he didn't win squat without pippen and Phil Jackson and it's okay. He's both remember that last night. They told you when Pippen didn't Rehab and Michael had the start the year with him. Fifteen games they rate and seven and by the way he ran through. Doug Collins and Stan all Brooke and in the series against Boston scored forty nine and sixty three lost both of them the reality even Michael Jordan admitted you say my name. You gotta say pippen you can think two things simultaneously michaels the best ever but even Michael needed the right coach. And the right Robin to Batman. So far this is mostly it. Mostly through to two parts of it amplified Everything I knew. It just gave you a little dirt. This was the greatest team I ever saw. It was the most glamorous team I ever saw and it was the most relentless team I ever saw. Just nobody outworked them. Michael had a a status. He was refined. He was dignified. There was a class with him that I think there's a lot of really classy guys in sports. But I think only Brady has that we're Brady. Feels like he could buy all the other quarterbacks Michael Right now even when he came into the League early there was just a a dignity in a row he was royalty he was American sports royalty. But but my over I got one. Overriding thought here is that and this is a message because people my age. No what I'm about to say and I don't WanNa come off as a cranky old fart lecturing people but most most twenty year olds in the media in most in eighteen nineteen year olds. There's a message in this whole damn thing. Michael Jordan is the best basketball player ever and he had obstacles the Hallway that his dad love his brother more than him. His brother physically beat him up playing basketball. He got cut in highschool his. Gm often felt like he had no respect for him. The owner would not give him a new deal even though he was so severely underpaid for seven of his eight years. Go look at Michael Jordan's life. He didn't break his foot. Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player. Ever he fought with pistons he fought with his GM. He fought with his owner. He fought with his body. He fought with his brother. He fought with his dad. It Ain't easy. You WanNa be great. Stop lying because somebody say a mean tweets. It's hard Michael Jordan's whole career. Why so hard? Why so tough. Because it was rough. It was rough for him. Think about being as good looking. His name is fashionable him as smart as him as great as him he still. He signed a battery contract. The owner was Noah's in his corner. Gm was the worst. Thank God Phil. Jackson showed up. Or maybe he goes through seven coaches Doug Collins fought with. You haven't seen a lot of that yet. The high school stuff is brother is Dad. I mean they got for. Mj's mom. I mean he can either get love from the boys of the family. So this idea that. We're all freaking out now. Go somebody said something on twitter. I just get. That's why guys like me. Laugh it all the people that get worked up on twitter. Life's hard deal with it. Nobody wants your SOB story. It's hard I mean Michael Jordan walked into the NBA and he walks into a room. This is where he started laughing last night. It was good to see Michael Jordan. Laugh like he had a gutter laugh and he was told by the the the documentary makers he's like a good team. He inherited a team that wasn't as popular as the local soccer team. With a bunch of coke heads and GM. There was a baseball scout. That's his road. He got the living you know what kicked out of him by the Pistons by the rafts by the Celtics. That's why he's great. He's not great despite that he's great because of that just just Michael Jordan is tough and you know what you saw that letter centers. Mommy's a great kid but Michael Jordan was about winning because he had to deal with nonsense is entire life and so in the end. You're either about winning or you add no value to him and I found Michael incredibly likable last night. He was worried about not being like. I've never liked Michael Jordan more than I liked him last night. I thought he was fantastic. It didn't have any time for nonsense because you know what some of his child was nonsense. I mean good God. We think people complain if they don't get this perfect linear path. That's not the way life works. That's not the way life works. I I'm not analogous to Michael. I'm the luckiest guy in the world. God I've had guide gotten chairs thrown at me joy me. You don't get a job at the big network. It's hard as a lot of Sucky as out there deal with it. Be Sure to catch live editions of the heard. Weekdays at noon eastern nine am Pacific. I really liked the documentary. There's a couple of reasons because for me and people that grew up with it it just to go back down memory lane. It's really fun. A lot of the stories I know couple of my didn't but it's fun. I also think it's really cool. John Google as tell me this morning younger people like I didn't have this stuff I just. I just knew they were great. So it's really cool like we're all collectively. I'm reminiscing younger. People are seeing stuff for the first time. I think it's a really a communal experience that we're all enjoying and I will say this there is. We tend to you know. I. It's we tend to create sort of role romanticized. The past a little bit too much the guys in the old days. They'll hate each other and guys. Today are now off friends. Oh really so Danny ainge and Michael Jordan or golfing on a day off. The Star of the Bulls Star of the Celtics are golfing during the playoff series. Yet in hate each other magic and bird really close friends by the way magic in Isaiah for years really close friends first of all a lot of guys back. Then they played cards they golfed. They had fun. They chased it. They drank they smoke cigars together off season and probably season. The difference is this. Today's players are all paid well. The salary cap used to be closer to twenty five million. Now it's well over one hundred. It'll be two hundred million in five six seven years the bottom line now and you sit down at the dinner table anybody listening to my show. That group big family and maybe a big family and your folks didn't have a ton of money and you know they'd hand out dinner and you're sitting there saying I gotta a role because if I don't fight for the role I'm not getting a role and their seven kids and I want to make sure I get that pork chop and all that Pie. I gotTA fight for my legitimate piece of the pie that used to be the old NBA. Michael Jordan was underpaid for seven. Years Scotty was underpaid. The stars were underpaid on the dynasty. You were wins equal revenue. Everybody was fighting for a very small financial pie. Now auto porter's rich everybody's rich we're paying twenty million dollars a year for guys and so everybody gets a second desert. Everybody gets a third role. Every body gets fourth piece of meat. Loaf is so. It's not as desperate why you know in life if everybody gets a little more comfortable financially. There's not quite as much de doesn't mean you're not competitive but they're not there's not quite as much desperation and so the players today if you put. Michael and Scotty and Scotty was making twenty seven million a year not two point two million a year. You know what he wouldn't have been so angry at the GM. He may not liked him. But there wouldn't be. This guys are different than women. Sometimes on this we're all about the respect and are we being shown love and our Egos. You know I get it but it's just a different world. A lot of guys back then got along and by the way you think Patrick. Beverley buddies now with rivals. You Think. Rondo is you think he. I mean seriously think coli wants to be buddies yacht us is like I don't WanNa be buddies with anybody. There Blake Griffin. Get along with players. There's there's all sorts of guys in the NBA. That do not WANNA buddy buddy. Westbrook says his best friends the ball. Their teammates talk to so this idea that current players roll softies. An old guys are all tough. It was a different world. Lots of friends back then a lot of guys. That don't WanNa talk to other guys now. One more heard the heard streams twenty four hours a day seven days a week within the iheartradio APP.

I didn't want to be one of these men good old days through way better than now because I love the NBA. Now I think I think there are a lot of guys playing in the NBA back. Then that couldn't shoot a free throw like the guys now are so skilled and so talented and such great athletes. And I've said this before. Is there a bad guy in the NBA? There's a lot of good dies every. Nba Guy. I know overtaxed or ever talked to just good guys know jerks. There used to be jerks. This was a league in the seventies. The traveling cocaine circus that is not an issue now again at that is not an issue but but there is one thing we got to lighten up a little bit on the good old nonsense. That's coming up. Be.

This is why Michael Loves Russell Westbrook. Russell Westbrook place heart every night. Every night. No possessions off and I know you think I. Hate Westbrook. No, he drives me crazy. But there's a lot of Michael Jordan with Westbrook. When you watch Michael Jordan and Jordan said Westbrook's his favorite current player. Sometimes westbrook will do things and you're like. Are you nuts? Slow it down shift down, but then I watched Michael Jordan last night. and Michael Jordan and his second got hurt. And the doctor said you can play on it. But if you get hurt again, your is over and Michael held a grudge. Against his owner, 'cause owner was like I. Don't think you should do this. I don't think we should take a risk Michael. I wanted to go Michael. Are you crazy? You're willing to riskier career. Just sit it out. You're not a title team I thought to myself Michael Low crazy in him, and Westbrook's got some crazy in him, but in a world where players take the night off and load management. I got I gotta be honest with you. I came out of that thing and I'm like. Props to Westbrook. Old School? I get I. Get it. He's not my favorite player. But I respect the hell out of Westbrook. Something else that jumped out to meet. Can we acknowledge now? People like me? Forties and fifties who grew up with the Bulls have always known the Michael Stories not linear. He didn't win without Phil Jackson and he didn't win without Scottie Pippen, he was just unbelievable, but now a lot of the mythology. You can all acknowledge now the twenty and thirty year old. Who didn't see it live. Michael didn't do anything without. Penn Phil Jackson and you can think to thought simultaneously. You can think with one side of your brain. Michael's the best ever and then think, but he didn't win. Squat without pippen and Phil Jackson and it's OK. He's both. Remember that last night. They told you when Pippen didn't Rehab and Michael had the start the year with him. Fifteen games, they rate and seven. And by the way, he ran through Doug Collins and Stan all Brooke, and in the series against Boston he scored forty, nine and sixty three, and they lost both of them the reality even Michael Jordan admitted. You say my name. You gotTA. Say Pippen you can think two things simultaneously. Michael's the best ever, but even Michael needed the right coach and the right Robin to his Batman. So far. This is mostly it mostly through to two. Parts of it. Amplified Everything I knew it just gave you a little dirt. This was the greatest team I ever saw. It was the most glamorous team I ever saw, and it was the most relentless team I ever saw. Just nobody outworked them. Michael had a a status. He was refined. He was dignified.

I thought to myself Michael Low crazy in him, and Westbrook's got some crazy in him, but in a world where players take the night off and load management. I gotta I gotTA. Be Honest with you. I came out of that thing I'm like. Props to Westbrook. Old School. I get I get it. He's not my favorite player. But I respect the hell out of Westbrook. Something else that jumped out to me. Can we acknowledge now now? People like me. Forties and fifties who grew up with the Bulls have always known the Michael Stories not linear. He didn't win without Phil Jackson and he didn't win. Without Scottie Pippen he was just unbelievable, but now a lot of the mythology you can all acknowledge now the twenty and thirty year olds who didn't see it live Michael didn't do anything without pippen and Phil Jackson, and you can think to thought simultaneously. You can think with one side of your brain. Michael's the best ever and then think, but he didn't win squat without pippen and Phil Jackson and it's OK. He's both remember that last night. They told you when pippen didn't Rehab, and Michael had the start the year with him fifteen games, they rate and seven. And by the way he ran through college and Stan all Brooke, and in the series, against Boston scored forty nine and sixty three. They lost both of them the reality even Michael Jordan admitted you say my name you gotTa. Say Pippen. You can think two things simultaneously. Michael's the best ever, but even Michael needed the right coach and the right Robin to Batman. So far, this is mostly it mostly through to two. Parts of it. Amplified Everything I knew it just gave you a little dirt. This was the greatest team I ever saw. It was the most glamorous team I ever saw, and it was the most relentless team I ever saw just nobody outworked them. Michael had a a status. He was refined. He was dignified. There was a class with him. That I think there's a lot of really classy guys in sports, but I think only brady has that we're. Brady feels like he can buy all the other quarterbacks Michael Right now. Even when he came into the League, early, there was just a a dignity, a Roy. He was royalty. He was American sports royalty, but but my over I got one overriding thought here. Is that in this is a message, because people, my age, no, what I'm about to say and I don't WanNa. Come off as a cranky old fart lecturing people. But most most twenty year olds in the media and most in eighteen nineteen year olds. Message in this whole damn thing. Michael Jordan is the best basketball player ever..
