I do praise Jordan for his recent protest against North Carolina transgender laws, but 30 years ago he wouldn't endorse a black candidate running against that racist piece of shit Jesse Helms.

And I just never liked his attitude in general. His Hall of Fame induction speech verified he's still an asshole.

There's no question that Jordan and his legacy benefits from coming up in the last era without social media, internet, TMZ, Deadspin, etc etc

There's also no question that he's the best player of all time.

Alas... a guy who fought teammates, who was notorious for hanging out late nights in casinos and strip clubs, who drove to Atlantic City to play high stakes blackjack till 4am before a playoff game against his team's biggest rivals, who was a known associate of mob connected bookies and guys known to be big sports gamblers... I'm not so sure he'd get to play with Bugs Bunny if he played in today's culture.

Every player is hurt this time of year, but coddled Stephen let's the whole world know about his boo boos.

What on earth are you talking about?

He had a grade MCL sprain a month ago. There's a difference between being hurt and being injured. Everybody is hurt in someway at this point, yes. Not everyone is injured. A grade 1 MCL sprain is not a boo boo.

Had "Delly" been tasked with defending Jordan, he'd foul out in 6 minutes or less.

GS gets some threes and OKC goes into full on panic mode

Westbrook is absolutely awful tonight.

Westbrook has gone Westbrook and Durant is playing terribly. Might be last time these two play together if this holds.

I mean you can't not foul Steph there out of fear of putting him on the line and then let him shoot a wide open three instead.
