Jordan has been retired a few years now. But, yeah, look at the tapes. Pretty awesome stuff. The gravity defying dunks, the spectacular adjustments made in mid-air for aweseome scores, the stellar defence, the many--MANY--dramatic game winning shots, the immaculate teamwork--Pippen, Grant, Rodman, Kerr, Kukoc, Harper, Cartwright, Paxton--none of them guys would have had a career or endorcements if not for being part of Jordan' supporting cast, and the three-peats acheived TWICE...all of these little acheivments make Michael Jordan--his "Airness"--the best of ALL TIME. PERIOD!
