Horace Grant recently said in an interview that even if Miami pulls off the threepeat this year that there's no way in hell the Heat could've beaten Jordan's Chicago Bulls. And he even goes on to say that with the rules being what they are today, that Michael "Air" Jordan would've had a field day with the Miami Heat.
Anyway, if you want to know more about what he said, then click on the ink below:

Personally i couldn't agree more with Ho Grant. He's a 100 percent right on the money. With the rules being what they are today, I'll take this a step further. not only would Michael Jeffrey Jordan be averaging fifty points a game against today's nba soft defenses, but the heat would be no match against the bulls. I don't care if we're talking about the bulls back during their first 3 peat or their second. The reality is the heat would have ZERO CHANCE to win.
Bosh is overrated. i don't give two cents to a rat's a** what anyone says. If Ho Grant guarded Bosh, then he would simply shut him down because in all honesty, Bosh is only good at scoring mid range jumpers and posting up. That's all he's good at. You take away his offense, he can't do s***. He's not a great defender, and he's not even a great rebounder. It's proven if you get physical with him, then he struggles, so Ho Grant would own him.
Hell if Dennis Rodman was guarding Chris Bosh, then he'd turn him into his little b***h. I'm sorry, as I'm sure Bosh is a nice guy, but that's just a fact. He's a soft mediocre player that's overrated., and he's lucky to be playing with wade and james because he's not that good. Hell if bosh was my height, then i can guarantee you that he would be sitting in the nose bleed section at the stadium watching the game instead of playing it.
I don't think the bulls would've been able to stop LeBron, but I know they could've slowed him down a bit to give him some trouble. I can imagine Phil Jackson would've probaby given him different looks from having Scottie Pippen guard him most of the game to even having guys like Ho Grant, or Rodman (depending on which 90's bulls team we're talking about here), guard him.
As for Michael Jordan, the Heat really wouldn't have an answer for him. Wade is a great player, but he's no michael jordan, and jordan has a significant height advantage over him. Plus, throughout jordan's 3 peat, he rarely ever got injured. Whereas wade's run with lebron, he's been struggling just to be a shadow of his former self, so I think jordan would've dominated wade. I'm not saying Wade wouldn't be a factor, but he wouldn't be able to stop Michael Jordan.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on this?
Being born an raised in Chicago & a diehard Bulls fan for over 35 years, my opinion may be a little bias, but I don't think the Heat could handle either of the Bulls 3 peat teams, especially the Jordan/Pippen/Rodman team. I would have loved to see Scottie Pippen lock down Lebron James.

With the previous and recent speculation that Lebron James is overrated I figured, Let me ask THE question. "King James" as some call him was coined as the "next Jordan" even before entering...

Who do you think is the best? The ( 1991-1992 ) Michael Jordan with Horace Grant and Scottie Pippen as his backup or The ( 2009- 2010 ) Kobe Bryant with Pau Gasol and Dereck Fisher as his backup

Can you agree with me that Michael Jordan is still the best basketball player ever played? Thanks

Many people are comparing Lebron James to Michael Jordan. MJ is 6 - 0 in the NBA finals. If the Miami Heat fall on Sunday, Lebron will have a negative record in the finals. That is not Jordan-esq. I believe...
