I once delivered a pizza to the house Michael Jordan grew up in. It was most certainly not in “the tough side of Wilmington, North Carolina.”

Furthermore, even passing familiarity with Jordan’s biography would be enough for you to know that he had a comfortable middle-class upbringing. His dad worked at GE.

And “Jordan was the most selfish gunner in NBA history.” What? Have you ever heard of George Gervin? Bob McAdoo? Dominique Wilkens? As for Bryant being a “much better pure shooter,” did you notice that the only time Jordan had a field goal percentage of 40% was when he turned 40? Did you get paid for this column? I’ll pass over you comparing Lamar Odom to Scottie Pippen in silence.
