However, I don't think you can blame that on Jordan. If he'd had a worthy adversary like Bird/Magic then the height of the 80's could've been continued IMO.
Actually let me retact a little. I dont completely blame Jordan, however, most of these young kids idolize the "Nike Air Jordan" way of basketball which is the way he played back when Magic and Bird where around, you know the slam dunk champ scoring 63 points in a game, however, they fail to idolize the fundamentals he later developed and ultimately won him his rings.
todays kids are more about ME or I and being hot dogs on the court. Magic and Bird where TEAM first US. That I blame on Jordan.
