Whoa....lol. First off, there is no Jordan and Kobe level. It's either or because Kobe is not on Jordan's level and he never will be. You can't just look at a player's PPG and say 'They were on MJ's level'. There's a huge difference between averaging 28-30 PPG's on 40% shooting and avergaing 28-30 PPG's on 50+% while being one of the best defenders in the game.

If you want to argue that TMac had a few seasons on Kobe's level then that's fine, but never did TMac have a Jordan-like season unless you're referring to Jordan's last few years of his career.

How come you always have a one-sided view of things and make assumptions on how I view players? No, I do not just look at PPG. I like how you avoided his absolute best year when he avg 32ppg, 5.5ast, 6.5reb, 46%fg with nearly 2 steals and 1 blk, not to mention great defense. TMac was a playmaker and played on both sides of the court. Those my friend are similar(not exact) Jordan and Kobe season numbers and if you can't accept that then I will just consider you blind.

TMac is a first round choke artist but at his absolute best, he rivaled Jordan and Kobe.

To be honest I'm not a big fan of yOur list.

I would rather get rubio, Wesley Johnson, cousins, evans since he is havin a down year....but 20 5 5. Is monster. Then curry RCA since he will be the best player on the team. They just need to trade Ellis for the right pieces.

At there absolute best when where Kobe or Jordan ever refereed to as "First Round Choke Artist?"...LMFAO!

So based on that statement alone TMac was never on there level....I will agree with you that TMac has some Elite Years but never did he Play at a Championship Level like MJ or Kobe....

I think I should just say during regular season, because TMac is a career playoff choker. That's all I gotta say about TMac, but I respect him as a player during his elite years. I loved Penny Hardaway too.

I agree with you....I Love Me Some TMac & Penny!....But Jordan and Kobe are at there level because of what they have done in both the regular season and in the playoffs so I wouldn't compare anyone with out a few rings to them myself but I guess I see where you were going with it.

Lol @ the tmac comparison to Jordan and Kobe....

Back to Eric Gordon. He will be better than tmac in his prime. Mark my words! He is continuing to get stronger every year. When he attacks the rim no one can stop him. He gets in the paint at will! Has good defense. Has great range! Can get assists. Guy is nutzzz!!

I agree


Not only does EJ have The Potential to surpass TMac at his Prime but he also has something that Tmac never did....A Monster in The Post that will allow EJ to dissect a Defense that doesn't respect him or Blake.

God I hope that with in the next 2 Years The Clipps add the pieces necessary to allow these guys to be the badasses they can be....I hear Deron Williams is not happy in Utah....

I wish. Unfortunately I feel the Clippers are stuck with Baron Davis at the PG. I'd love to see Deron join up with EJ and Blake. That'd be scary!

...or since EJ and DRose are close friends how about EJ comes to Chi-Town and creates the best backcourt in basketball? Now THAT would be scary. The Bulls only weakness is SG. If they could somehow get EJ it would awesome

I say EJ goes to Indiana and plays in his home town

This would be a sick lineup...

Darren Collison
Eric Gordon
Danny Granger
Roy Hibbert
Hansbrough/McRoberts

They would just sorta lack at the PF position..

I read something about B Diddy being moved to The Bobcats for Augustin, DeSagana Diop and Matt Carroll....I think LA needs to get rid of that HUGE Contract and get itself into a workable position to add some ELITE FREE AGENTS....Baron will only get worse and they dont need that when EJ & Blake are only getting better.

I wonder how much better the Bulls/DRose would be if Ben Gordon would have never left.... Rose/Gordon/Deng/Boozer/Noah ....That would be a Championship Contending Team for Sure!

I've thought about that too and really hope that doesn't happen...lol

I would hope Eric would use better judgment and consider the fact that if he joined the Bulls they could win multiple championships with that young and loaded team. Yes, I just said that...

How come Eric Gordon is referred to as "EJ"? Shouldn't it be "EG"?

I didn't really like the Ben Gordon/Rose backcourt. I feel that Ben would have stunted Derrick's growth as a player. It was fine for Derrick's rookie year, but now the team is going in a different direction in my opinion. Plus, as a Bulls fan I remember a few times in Rose's rookie year where BG would purposely not give the ball to Rose, so there could have been a jealous factor in there as well.

Ben Gordon is more of a chucker that wouldn't fit on this Bulls team. He was/is also a very streaky scorer and undersized for the SG position. Not to mention that he is also a defensive liability.

Now Eric Gordon on the other hand doesn't need the ball to score as he is a very good catch and shoot type player. He is a very efficient scorer, a good defender, and not undersized for the SG position. He is basically the perfect fit for the Bulls SG position. I guess one can dream

Indiana loves the kid. LOL. I'm sure he will consider it. I think i read an article about it of how Pacers want him on there team. LOL. But so does everyone else. That would be sick though. I'm sure EJ would love it!

EJ > BG anyday....lol!

I just think that The Bulls would be Scary with Ben's ability to put up Big Numbers but they could be Elite with EJ's all around game.
