Posted Tuesday June 25, 2013, About: NBA: Michael Jordan still the greatest modern era player
I like how "disappearing from games" is just taken as not scoring. Granted he finished the finals with averages of 25 points, 10 boards and 7 assists, a mark only set in one other finals (he did it the year before). But he scores 18 while grabbing 18 boards and dishing out 10 assists and he "disappeared".

He isn't yet on Jordan's level. But in the past 13 months has won 2 championships, 2 MVP's, 2 finals MVP's and an Olympic gold medal. He's definitely playing as well as any NBA player ever has in the modern era. Whether he keeps that level up (or close to it) or not is what will determine where he is when it is all said and done.
Posted Tuesday June 25, 2013, About: Juan Pablo Montoya out of gas and should be out of NASCAR
Well just because he was a great open wheel racer doesn't mean he deserves a great nascar team. Those resume's between different types of racing are completely different (ask Sam Hornish, Travis Pastrana, Kimi Raikkonen, or Jaques Villanueve). He hasn't proven himself even in the nationwide series (avg finish 21st) yet and he isn't a huge name draw in Nascar (better than some, not on an elite level as a celebrity to get the sponsors spending).

Until he can put himself in the chase, win a couple ovals, or do something worth showing he deserves a good team and lots of money spent on his career, there is no reason to go out and do that.
