i know you're being hyperbolic in you statement but jordan did recieve alot of favorable calls in games
yes he received the benefit of the doubt on some close calls because of who he was, but so does tom glavine on a corner pitch and so does barry bonds on a corner pitch.....after being a stud performer for years in sports you earn those calls.....but still u will not convince me otherwise that MJ would not have been as great
without a extra call or so a game go his way.......
and he was not a strong defender????????what are u talking about,,,he night in night out guarded the other teams best perimeter offensive player , and 9 times out of 10 shut the opposing player down.....he was probably as good a off the ball defender in the NBA during the late 80s and early 90s......so yes he did deserve the defensive player of the year award over a center
