    This is a big insult to the raptors and to nicks game plan. Kawhi was valuable in defending giannis but no more than gasol or serge

    I don't think Giannis could be Jordan, but he could def be Wilt + Shack, which could end up being better than Jordan, hard to say yet, like you need to dominate your opponent every single game and play hard every night at both ends of the court, that's very difficult to sustain, that's why Jordan is the GOAT.

    To counter Thomas’s top 50 argument, Jordan played with 1 Hall of Fame player in Pippen. Thomas played with 2 Hall of Fame players in Dumars and Rodman.

    Always been an Isiah fan, but if he wasn't so stuck on what he stuck on, his points would be more valid. Max says that the first time MJ played with an all star look what happened. But, then he goes straight to Pippen being an all time top 50. Come on Isiah, you had Vinny, Dumars, and should i go one. Too stuck in his feelings about them and the Bulls.

    Unfortunately Isiah is right . They beat the bulls 3 out of 4 playoff series.but overall Chicago was much better than Detroit in both there primes . Pistons late 80,s and bulls in the 90’s
