If you want to play what ifs and make up what possibly could have happend and reject reality and actually happend then be my guest.
Fact: MJ didnt play in Wilts era so you cant compare them
Fact: Durant / kobe did not play in MJs era so you cant compare.
Fiction: Trying to figure what kobe / Durant would have done playing in their prime vs MJ in his prime
Fiction: Trying to figure out how MJ in his prime would fare against Russell and Wilt in their prime
Fiction: Trying to take players form yesteryear and put them in present.

I guess you didnt read my last post, and the only one who brought up bill russell was you. Jordan left the league 10 years ago when kobe was at the beginning of his prime..you bring up bill freaking russell?!? that was 50 years ago man..people try and compare kobe lebron durant etc to Mj because they can..Mj was way ahead of his time and thats a fact..if you watched these people play and you know the difference between basketball then and now you would be able to somewhat compare...Magic says MJ is the best of all time & kobe is the best laker of all time, i guess he doesnt watch basketball today, i guess he doesnt have enough creds to make that kind of statement.
