  • USA basketball changed it's platform, they go for the younger players now for the most part.

    what's cold is they're still better than the rest of the world. Only Spain can mess with the USA in basketball, I'd throw in Argentina but they flop and it's sickening to watch.

Jordan would probably end up on Kobe and shut him down, then nobody would stop Jordan. Those two are the two best players in history. Kareem would be a more interesting deal because of that skyhook deal - he was sort of a Tim Duncan type.

    Thats a misconception ..Wilt played against many centers of good height and weight and dominated them all ..I will have to find the link to prove this but it's out there..Shaq was slower,not as athletic and weaker than Wilt..But I understand you will go with what you saw..Oh and your Kareem skyhook..Wilt blocked those a few times..Only man who could do it..I agree with Jordan on Kobe..Skills aside Jordan just was a fierce gamer who hated to lose..

    The skyhook was highly unblockable being as it was coming from the hand away from the basket. Jordan was incredible to watch. He would explode to the rack when he was young - he'd leave the ground at the effing top of the key. Later he tooled up his jumper, but coud still take it to the rack and that was when dude turned into the this unstoppable monster. Anyone who says anybody but Jordan is the best player in history is serisously on the crack pipe.

    Spain produces a lot of very good big men at this point. Technically sound guys. That's why Spain can hang with the USA in the FIBA Worlds and the Olympics.

  • True, Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka, and to a lesser extent Marc Gasol's sibling who plays like his sister Pau.
