Over 15 years, Michael Jordan achieved many amazing feats — breaking countless records, winning many Championships, and slowly cementing himself as basketball’s All-Time greatest player.
But during one specific stretch of his basketball career, Jordan dominated the game in almost every aspect, and winning three Chips, three scoring titles, two MVPs, 3 Finals MVPs, and 3 All-Defensive First Team selections. He also missed zero games during that span.

A resume like that far surpasses what most players can dream of. But, for Jordan, he was able to do it all in just a little over two and a half years.
This is Why Michael Jordan Is The Greatest Player Of All Time.

Wtf this shit is unreal lol. He’s #1 & honestly it’s nowhere near close in any type of way shape or form like whoever #2 is so far off from him.

The 3x all defensive part of that (and in 50% of the seasons he played) is all you need to end any debate

What made Jordan really special was the lack of any real flaws in his game. On offense, Jordan was a master at drives, dunks, threes, mid-rangers, pull-ups, and pretty much anything you can think of. He had the complete package.
On defense, he was a guy that never backed down from a challenge, and always did his best to slow down his opponent. His DPOY win in ’87 and the multiple times he was selected on the NBA’s All-Defensive team show how talented he was on that end of the floor.
Of course, Jordan also had that “killer mentality” that made both him and his teammates better and more competitive.
In the end, it’s really no wonder why he was able to do all that he did. MJ was special on the court. and there’s a good chance we’ll never see anything like it again.
