I mean, there's a difference between being confident and being just plain stupid:

Well, knuckleheads that full of themselves are often the guys that never even make the NBA since they think they've already got great skills.

i see it more as a couple of babies who dont REALLY know what jordans game was like. sure htey have some highlights, or can watch games but watching a game from 20 years ago just isnt the same. no point of reference i guess

They wouldn't have been able to beat Jordan from the UNC version to the Washington Wizards version.

What Jordan never lost was the will and mental edge.

Jordan during the 6 championship area would've ate either of those jokers for breakfast without even breaking a sweat.

It's amazing how audacious today's youth is.

They may just find out about 50 year old Jordan, if he can find 218.

You actually see this a lot with younger people.

Remember the thread a while back where we had posters that claimed Jordan didn't have a quick first step and blah blah blah? They'd probably only seen the Wizards version of Jordan, let alone the 20-something Jordan that would blow by his defender despite legal handchecking and then posterize the opposing center.

Then all the claims that todays players are "more athletic"....maybe in general but a lot of todays players are not as well-developed in their skills either....and Jordan was one of the guys from his era that was fanatically dedicated to weights etc.
