I viewed a list that had the greatest athletes from every state and I was appalled that Michael Jordan was called a better Athlete than karreem Abdul jabbar. NO WAY IS HIS AIRNESS A BETTER ATHELETE THAN JABBAR WAS.I get the love affair that the media has with Jordan, but Jordan is known for mainly just his pro career. Yes he won gold medals in the Olympics, but Jabbar protested the Olympics because of the treatment of African Americans or else he surly would have won his. Jabbar has one more overall titles, had the rules changed for him, had sneaker deals long before his airness, dominated the league with sup par talent long before Magic got there and made better movies. The Hate against jabbar has gone on long enough.And for those who don't understand this,let me say one more thing. Jabbar is still the number one scorer in the NBA. In a league with three pointers being the norm,that is truly incredible
