re-best ever

On TV here in Australia one of our local sporting "Experts" was proclaiming 
Jordan as the best ever (sports man, not just basket ball player) and when 
pushed as to what set Jordan apart from all the other best ever players, he 
could only come up with "Well look at the money he has generated for the 

Too bad Bill Gates doesn't play basket ball, surely he could challenge
for best player ever :)

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.
