Over-rated by young fans that never watched anyone play before him. The NBA helped by marketing Jordan and showing his dunks on ESPN on a daily basis. And all those Jordan sneakers. Oh my. Magic Johnson and Larry Bird were past their primes, and Jordan was clearly the best during a weak decade of NBA players. One of the best ever. I put him in the top 10.

Undeniable great, but he shot too much and his often unpleasant attitude must have unnerved many a teammate.

As much as I didn't care for Jordan (and 'Space Jam'), it's pretty hard to dispute he was one of the greatest scorers ever.  I would've like to have seen him pass more but when you shoot like that who needs to.  Anyway, where is Mark Eaton on this list?

This is obviuos. The best player ever, for now, and no doubt five star. The only problems Michael caused for his team was being to good and getting all of the media. He was the best player on the best team and obviuosly won.

OMG did I just hear this correct too, samjung23 is dumb as hell. The type of players he names as a great shooters, which indeed they are, did not CREATE their own shots. REggie is NOTORIOUS for having to need picks to get free. Most great shooters need that, because you need picks when your dribble isn't good. MJ had a dribble, and moves, and CREATED his own shot. He played against some of the greatest guards ever. He made their stats and achievements diminish. Isaiah (tough and talented as they come), Mitch Richmond (prolific scorer), Gary Payton (greatest on ball defender), Joe D, etc. and furthermore. PHil came at a time when MJ was already scoring 30 a game, so individually he was already great. THE ONLY man i'll entertain coming near him is Hakeem. He is in the top ten in blocks and steals, to me that's ENOUGH said about his impact on the position and the defensive end. BILL RUSSLE can't hold his jock.

Let's look at the players Michael Jordan beat during his career in the NBA that are on the 50 Greatest list:  Bird, Magic, Malone, Stockton, Isiah Thomas, Kevin McHale, Clyde Drexler, Hakeem, Barkley, and Shaq.  That's 20% of the entire list.  The rest of the list played before MJ.  If you include all the hall of famers or future hall of famers Jordan has beat, the list grows tremendously.  Nobody is denying Pippen.  He is also on the 50 Greatest list.  But who made Pippen?  Michael.  All of Jordan's weaknesses from the first half of his career were gone for the second half.  He became a great passer, defender, and an NBA Champion.  Six (6) times.  MVP 5 times.  2 Gold Medals.  Phil Jackson is a great coach.  But it is easy to win 9 titles when you have Michael and Scottie for your first 6 and Shaq and Kobe for your other 3.  Michael left Chicago, no championships for Phil.  Shaq left LA, no championships for Phil.  The fact that there is even a debate and that Michael only has a 4.25 rating completely baffles me.  Well, I shouldn't say COMPLETELY baffles me.  I am sure there are some young guys who think Kobe or Lebron is better.  Or some old school guys who think Russel or Magic is better.  These opinions are understandable I suppose.  But watch some tape of Mike.  Youtube him or go on ebay and pick up some old vhs highlight tapes.  Lastly, what makes the game so terrible today is that everyone tries to be like Mike and can't measure up.  That's not his fault.

Quite possibly the most overrated player of all times! A player that only was really noticeable after Bird, Magic, Kareem, and the rest of the giants had retired. Success came to Jordan in a diluted NBA.

6 rings or 6 out of 6.....no losses in NBA Finals. The idiots who rate Wilt and Bill Russell on this site above his Airness drank too much Kool-Aid like the Democrats and the left wing nut jobs. All I can say is watch Jordan's cross dribble against Brian Russell of Utah in 1998 NBA Finals and delivers "The Shot" announced by Bob Costas...What an athlete !!! Larry Bird quipped that he was playing against God (Michael Jordan). Last of the greatest group of old school players from 80's with Magic and Bird until NBA turned into tatoo ridden, gangsta spoiled, no-talent players. Jordan and the Bulls could have won 8 straight titles if he didn't retire 94-95 from playing baseball and giving the 2 titles to Houston Rockets. Think about that you idiots who don't think he is number one on this fraudlent list. 72-10 record in 95-96- his first full season back from baseball..... "It's not how you push along the way....it's having something in you to finish...." ....Michael Jordan..... It looks like Brian Russell and the Utah Jazz experienced that on "The Shot"

One of the greatest to ever play the game! No one made it look easier, or more exciting when he left the floor and glided through the air for what looked like forever. Not only a great basketball player, but a great role model for his younger fans. No one has even come close since.

Jordan is the greatest player who ever lived. That's a cliche statement, but the truth is always cliche. I could go on and on about this guy, but I'm not in the mood to write an epic. Opinions may differ on whether or not he's the best player ever, but no one can deny he was incredibly gifted and entertaining.

Michael Jordan is a great basketball player which is why i gave him a 4, but he IS NOT the GREATEST basketball player ever. Without, Phil Jackson there wouldnt be Air Jordan as we know it today.

Case in point: In 1994 when Jordan retired, the Bulls made it to the second round of the Playoffs and lost to the Knicks due to a stupid call from the ref. Their regular season record was (i think) 55-17, just two point less of their mark in 1993 when Jordan was playing with the team. The Bulls is STILL A WINNING TEAM with or without Jordan. This goes on to show that Jordan is not the BIGGEST factor in the Bull's championship run.

In contrast, the Lakers after Magic, IIRC, was eliminated in the first round of the Playoffs even though they still have James Worthy to carry the team. They also LOST 12-15 games more in the regular season. Something similar also happened when Bird quit the Celtics and also when Bill Russell retired. In fact his old Celtic team, after winning 11 rings, didnt even get into the Playoffs the year after he left.

He was a great player, but why is this guy untouchable? Does anyone remember when he yelled at Scottie Pippen when Scottie made the game winning shot instead of passing it to Michael? Or the time when he slapped Steve Kerr during a practice. When the Bulls played the Jazz in the finals, Jordan clearly shoved Brain Russell and made the game winning shot. The ref was right there, but Jordan got the "superstar rule." Do you know why Michael Jordan recently wrote a book and went on the show 60 Minutes, it's because for the first time, Jordan wasn't in the spotlight. He missed the attention, and I'm sick of people acting like he's a god and I'm sick of people acting like he's a choir boy. I know I might get flamed for this, but I think the best NBA player ever was Bill Russell. He was on the greatest dynasty b-ball team ever, he was even a coach, and he dominated the sports world at a time when blacks weren't welcomed.

Note to all the players trying to be the next Jordan: give up. Be your own best player, and lose the 'tude. There can be only one Jordan. UPDATE: While samjung23's assertion that Lebron will fail is true, I disagree with his assertion that Jordan could not create his own shots. If you can cut and drive like Jordan did on many occasions, then change your shot in midair, that is on the player, not the coach. A good coach will turn a bunch of guys into a team, true enough, but innate talent like Jordan's cannot be made by the coach. Shaped a little maybe. Anyways, I believe the best of all worlds would encorporate Jordan's ability to drive the lane and get that first step, Dan Majerle's perimeter shooting and hustle up and down the court, Charles Barkley's ability to back down on people in the post and get that rebound, Danny Ainge's fearless diving after the loose ball, and consistent high percentage free throw shooting.

Before, I would've given Jordan 5 stars, but I think he's a more a three now. My reasons come as a result of watching Kobe Bryant play under Phil Jackson, and without. It's clear, understanding the Triangle offense and whatnot, that Jackson is the one that created the miraculous shots for Kobe and Michael. If you look at all the Shooting Guards that have come after Jordan and tried to imitate him, they've all failed...miserably. The same will happen to Lebron. The type of shooting guard you want to imitate is Reggie Miller, Jeff Hornacek, Dan Majerle, Joe Dumars and Rip Hamilton, players that truly can shoot and create their shots. Everyone now looks at a high school or college prospect, compares them to Jordan and then grade them as such. That's crazy. Jordan had good coaching, as did Kobe. Good coaching and team management is more important than good talent. It will take smart and super-talented players to make a difference, but good coaching to transform a team into a winner. That's why I think Lebron will not meet his uber-sized expectations, just like many other "next Jordans".

To say Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time is an understatement. He was undoubtly the greatest sportsperson of all time. His statistics may be great however the fact that he pulled so many admirers to his games both home and away is possibly the greatest statistic that proves my opinion. For many seasons (nearly all) the games he played in were sold out. The fact that demonstrating sensational skills and entertainment, is what made about his fame. Saying that many might disagree, however his success really attests to the fact the he must have trained very hard. In Australia the only time we ever got to see the NBA on free TV is when Jordan was playing, alot has changed. I could crap on forever but this will do.

Jordan was the greatest basketball player to ever grace the face of the earth. And contrary to what some people on this site say, he could pass the ball and his ability to make other players better, on top of his obvious scoring abilities, is what makes him the greatest player ever. Also did I mention his Defensive Player of the Year Award. I believe there are players nowadays that have many of the physical abilities that jordan did, such as kobe bryant, but kobe can't lead a team like jordan could. Jordan made Scotty Pippen an amazing player, without jordan he was good at best. No one is currently better then jordan, and no one has ever been as good as jordan. He is the greatest.

Jordan is one heck of a player. 30.1 points per game in his carrer (33.4 in the play-offs). NBA MVP in 1988, 1991, 1992, 1996, 1998. He could also play defensive. Defensive Player of the Year 1988 and 9-time All Defensive First Team 1988-93 and 1996-98.

Naming the heirarchy of Basketball's greats is a fine art. And let's face it, most fan-addicts don't know the art. They are ruled by blind impulse, pure sentiment, or dumb computer logic. Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson unquestionably are numbered among the NBA Elite. But Michael Jordan is the Elite of the Elite. He stands above the rest not only for leading the Bulls to six championships, but for the way he led them. He is, by far, the greatest clutch player and competitor in NBA history, if not in all of professional sports. No other player has inspired and instilled a greater passion for the game of basketball, and certainly no player embodies the game better than Michael Jordan. A star of greater stature may yet emerge, but he is presently nowhere to be found.

Being a Knick's fan, it wasn't easy seeing Jordan talk crap to Starks, and get under his skin. Let's face it. Nobody could do that like Jordan. Because he WAS better, they knew it, he knew it, everyone KNEW it. My husband was a Jordan fan, and I nearly was too, truly, honestly enjoyed watching this man play, he was miraculous. Would have been cool if Jordan could go back in time, and played Dr. J in his prime.
