People can shout out Lebron all they want but Lebron in Jordan's era would have been destroyed by the different defensive rules at the time (hand-checking).
Tell me Lebron would last 5 minutes against this type of play
Not gonna happen. Kid is too soft.If Michael was at the point, we forced him left and doubled him. If he was on the left wing, we went immediately to a double team from the top. If he was on the right wing, we went to a slow double team. He could hurt you equally from either wing—hell, he could hurt you from the hot-dog stand—but we just wanted to vary the look. And if he was on the box, we doubled with a big guy.
The other rule was, any time he went by you, you had to nail him. If he was coming off a screen, nail him. We didn't want to be dirty—I know some people thought we were—but we had to make contact and be very physical.
