Who is the biggest basketball player of all time? The problem often sparks a energetic dialogue but is fundamentally mistaken if you imagine about it. The similar goes for — who’s the biggest singer, writer, or artist of all-time? Most of the time, it is a matter of particular view, and it is very simple as that.

How can you review players who under no circumstances played towards every single other, players who performed against distinct competition, or gamers who played with distinct products? And that is exactly the issue Michael Jordan produced all through his interview with Cigar Aficionado.

“I gained 6 championships Bill Russell received 11. Does that make Invoice Russell better than me? Or make me far better than him? No. Since we performed at diverse eras.”
