Who is the greatest basketball player of all time?

I believe that the greatest basketball player of all time is Michael "MJ" Jordan. He carried the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships and his stats will show that he is an all-around basketball player. Before the NBA, MJ, as a freshman, helped the University of North Carolina (UNC) win the national championship (1981-82 season) and was named College Basketball Player of the Year. He was the NBA Rookie of the year in 1985. Moreover, MJ was a member of the 1992 US Olympic men's basketball team, the "Dream Team" who won the Gold medal in the 1992 Summer Olympics. His 13 seasons in the NBA with the Chicago Bulls were full of highlights and incredible feats.

There have been so many good players after Michael Jordan but no one of them has ever come close to him as far as basketball is concern. Even the present star players have a high respect for MJ and what he did in the NBA. FYI, MJ average 31.5 points during his NBA career scoring a total of 29,277 points from 1984-1998. He has 5 NBA MVP, 6 NBA Championships, 6 NBA Finals MVP, 10 Scoring Titles,10 All-NBA First Team. MJ is indeed the greatest player of all time.

I definitely agree with you. Michael jordan is the best nba player for me too. I remember when during the playoffs, they faced utah a number of times and it was always the bulls who prevailed. Of course with the help of pippen, kerr, longley, rodman, and the others.
