(such as shortened 3 point line, hand checking rules & well defined rules regarding illegal defenses)."
So these were all changed just so the league could help out jordan individually??? Everyone during his time had the same advantages, and yet he still dominated.
Still hard to fault jordan for rules changing that he doesnt have control over...
The hand check rules were definitely put in place because of Jordan. If you remember at the time sports writers were jokingly dubbing it the "Jordan Bill".
When you compare Jordan to some of the greats who came before him the rule changes are a very valid argument and far from stupid.
This does nothing to diminish the fact that Jordan was the most dominate player of the modern game.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
