I've said this before on the Lakers board - MJ was one of the greatest. I've been watching basketball since 1963. I've seen quite a few players. The Big O was better than MJ. Sweet shot with great range (MJ did not have great range). Fantastic passer. Unfortunately nothing clicked for Oscar till he got with Kareem and Lucius Allen and Dandridge et al. However, the greatest I ever saw was Magic. Unbelievable. A great winning spirit that he imparted to his teammates.
