    Smh I would of booed him too, if I lose and I shake your hand, when I win you better shake my hand! He’s telling the truth on that one but he lie about one thing! It was not him by himself, he had Denis Roadman on his team. So don’t sit up there and say it was you alone, no it was not!

    Giannis haves to win rings. Probably the most dominant thus far in this generation, and best this year. But best player In the WORLD? i gotta see titles of dunk contest, olympian gold medalist, 2 3peats back to back rings winner, etc lol. But he's one of my todays favs of Ballers.

    It doesn't matter if your the best player in the league. If your team doesn't step up on the big stage, you will never win a championship. MJ, Shaq, LeBron, Curry, Hakeem the Dream, Kobe, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki. All those guys would not have any titles if it was just them being the only player stepping up

    Sorry Max but you can't just say the first time Jordan played with another all star and have a valid argument bc that all star turned into one of the greatest players of all time.

    He was playing against a young Jordan and Pippen. Once the Bulls matured and improved over time they swept the Pistons and went 7 games the year before (Bulls probably could’ve won the series). And the Pistons were loaded with talent: Zeke(Isaiah Thomas), Dennis Rodman, Joe Dumars, John Salley, etc. So I think Isaiah is wrong here.

    0:33 you can’t call a best player in the world when they get done? Really Lebron’s fans media keep trying to put Lebron as the best player in 2009 2010 2011 but he didn’t win Giannis is great but Kahwi and Lebron for me if KD comes back healthy those 3 Max is right Giannis not yet best player but the way he explains it is wrong

    Yeah the reason Pistons stopped Jordan is cuz it was before Pippen and they made the whole team shove Jordan before he could liftoff

    Most disrespected legend in the game, and this guy went back to back and won Finals MVP, but every millennial is on the Jordan hype train. He told no lies, Bad Boy Pistons had a winning record against the Bulls.

  • Balakrishnan Swaminathan

    Mj fans are supposed to boo, as Isaiah was practically saying, he was better than mj, when the pistons went against the Bulls, as mj had Pippen who eventually became a top 50 player, while he never had a top 50 player, even though he had all stars

    Detroit thought they had a dynasty brewing. As soon as Michael got help, he ended that. The greatest there ever was and the greatest there ever will be: Michael Jeffrey Jordan.

    I love Isiah, i hate jordan. Isiah shines light, and jordan became ugly as years passed. This tells all, for me.
