I didn't write this post, just want thoughts.


Was Michael Jordan's five years from '88-'89 through '92-'93 the best five year stretch of any player in history?

I think these stats was what solidified him as GOAT, the championships he won after the fact was just icing on top.

On mobile so cant post the statline but Wilt chamberlains first seven years are certainly in the conversation, but it's hard to compare players from different eras.

How about no

Jordan when he retired after the 3peat was the best SG ever, top 10 of all time.

His career was not long enough to be the GOAT. No one referred to him as the best ever and he needed at least 5 rings to end the discussion.

The 6th ring was icing.

The 6th ring was icing.I often wonder if he would be considered the GOAT if he had stayed retired the first time, or what the conversation/argument would look like.

Jordan had 10 in 11 games and didn't have to play like an inefficient phaggot averaging 9 turnovers per game to do it.

He did, however, do just like Westbrook and actively track his stats and have convos with the stat keeper like a phaggot

I thought he was GOAT already when Bird called him God.

Barry sanders treatment.Except that it's generally accepted that Sanders would've put up rushing yardage that would've never been surpassed.
