    I think aside from being the greatest basketball player ever, he is also one of the most eloquent athletes ever.

    Kobe nor LeBron could never be greater or be like Michael Jordan. Never by a million miles… Never! He is the one and only Michael Jordan… the greatest basketball player.

    I’ll say amen to that.

    In fairness to Kobe or Lebron, they have not said that they want to be the next Michael Jordan. They said that they prefer to be the only Kobe Bryant or Lebron James.

    I think si Jabbar ang pinakauna ko’ng nakilalang NBA player when I was a kid. Naalala ko kasi, lumabas siya sa pelikula ni Bruce Lee na “Game of Death”.

    As I first saw a documentary about Michael Jordan, I know I will be a fan of basketball. It was amazing seeing him fly, defying gravity at its very essence. I watched his winning shot over the Utah Jazz way back in the 90’s when I was still a kid and when Karl Malone was crowned MVP. I literally saw him fly then, I saw him above every basketball player in history, of course including Malone: the MVP that time.
    Jordan had revolutionized basketball game play. He has set a new standard today where everyone else followed. Subsequently, the results were really amazing. From today’s Kobe Bryant and his famous step-back jumper to the knee-breaking crossover of Allen Iverson, I know that they were direct results of Jordan’s new standards making NBA soar high in terms of fame. As they put it, “heroes here are not born, they are made.” And I will stand my ground being a lifetime solid fan of basketball.
