Top Ten NBA Players from the Michael Jordan Era2storm This one was really a lot of players from this era. It spans from 1984 to 2002. It includes players only from this era, so no LeBron James, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, and more players like that. The people in this top ten are based off of Skill, Leadership, Winning Ability, and accomplishments within this era.
The Top Ten
Here is where Jordan comes into play. I honestly think MJ is really overrated. I mean he was a great player and he is in the discussion for the Best Player Ever, but he played in a totally different era then some of the best players. Competition was different, rules were different, I could on and on about Jordan. Might just make a post about this. - 2storm
I'm going to get so much hate for this. I'm a little bias in this situation, but just look at some of the accomplishments he had. And imagine what he would be if he wouldn't have made some the dumb decisions he made. - 2storm
Larry again like Magic a little bit bias. Bird was in my opinion the 3rd best player of All-time due to his elite skill and his ability to lead. Jordan had that ability just not on the same ability as a guy like Bird. Plus Bird was the best shooter ever. - 2storm
Jordan's Bulls were swept twice in the playoffs verse Bird's Celtics.Bird is the GOAT.
Bird was incredible. He carried a weak Indiana St. team all the way to the championship game of the NCAA, unfortunately for him, it was Magic and a stronger MSU team that beat him in that final game. I also believe he is the best pure shooter I've ever seen. And his shot from behind the backboard is something I will never forget - Ned964
If this wasn't era restricted and it was all-time I would put Kareem above Jordan. He was old though during this era so that is why he is 4th on this list. - 2storm
The Dream Shake came into effect in this era. He was beast and he won the title for his team the years Jordan was gone. - 2storm
Best low post moves ever. Money fade away too - Ned964
Would have stomped Jordan while drinking 3 liters of soda.
I admire Clyde the Glide. He was one of the many players I tried to model my game after. He was also known as the Jordan of the West. I personally think they should've won that series with the Bulls. - 2storm
The Human Highlight started to destroy the league and really gave the Celtics a run for their money. - 2storm
Jordan's rival. He led the Detroit Bad Boys to two rings. - 2storm
The Big Diesel was destroying with both the Magic and Lakers and he helped young Kobe - 2storm
Kobe was kinda young during this era, but he was still a beast - 2storm
One of the greatest power forwards ever - 2storm
In my opinion one of the top 5 defensive centers of All-time. - 2storm
Definitely top Ten Overall - 2storm
