For arguments sake and taking all positions and all players, there is no
doubt in my mind who is the best of all time, Michael Jordan. All the rest
are a distant 2nd. This point of view comes from a Celtic can, and a Bird
favorite player fan. But in all honesty, I can't see anyone other than
Jordan as being the best ever. I don't even really like Jordan, but I
respect him for the lifestyle he lives and the responsibility he owns up
to, including being a winner. Remember he wasn't always the great Jordan,
he worked hard and earned it. Historians will no doubt decree him the best
till someone else comes along, and he or she:) will.
