If that is what the person did then he did no wrong, sure Walker's stats are
comparable to Jordan's. Jordan has more points and assists. Walker has more
rebounds. Now if that somebody says that Walker is equal to Jordan in
basketball skill then that would be totally erroneous for he has ways to go.

You counted the role players and left the two key components Pippen and
Rodman, they make the Bulls better than celtics or for that matter any other

The team needed a pg to run the offense and with Anderson onboard, Walker's
shot selection and output improved dramatically. Neither Billups nor Barros
are pg's and that had something to do with players having to take last
second shots or force shots because they couldn't get open looks. Regarding
3 pointers walker shot at 31.3% a clip which is not bad at all.

Needless to say I disagree with you, I cringed at the day when the C's
couldn't find a better player than Dee Brown to be the captain of the team.
It's been a while since a celtics captain is also an all star.
