Celebrate Michael Jordan all you want, I still can’t stand him

Joe Dumars and Michael Jordan (Sports Illustrated)

I hate Michael Jordan. Absolutely hate him.

Growing up, the Pistons were the good and he was the enemy.

He was brash. He played for Chicago. And worst of all, he was great.

There were moments, though.

I loved that Joe Dumars was the one player who could slow him a little bit (nice article on that from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski). I loved that the Pistons beat the Bulls during Chicago’s 72-win campaign. And I loved that the Pistons were the only team to contain him before he became unstoppable.

But, obviously,the bad memories outnumber the good.

So, thanks to Patrick Hayes of Its Just Sports for ranking the top 23 Michael Jordan failures. Great feature that was desperately needed during the lovefest surrounding his hall of fame induction tonight.

I don’t think I could ever hate a player like that again. I understand that the guys everyone hates would be the most popular player if they played for your team. And I’ve learned to appreciate good basketball.

But old habits die hard.

I still hate Michael Jordan.

    I Like myself some Michael Jordan, but did he get his dad killed and or force his baseball career. I have a theory that his dad was killed because of his gambling and then it forced him to retire.  This saved his face and the face of basketball. Is this out of left field?

    I still hate Jordan too, its almost impossible not to.  THe guy is a complete myopian who shows little respect for basketball and those he played against and for.  His HOF speech was a joke.  A shame he is so clearly bitter about things.  He sucks as a GM too.  I’ll never forget that Jalen Rose called the day the Pistons walked off the floor early after being swept by the Bulls “the greatest day of my life.”  Rose is a true Detroiter, through and through, a shame he never wore the royal and red.

    I was a pistons fan until they ran off the court like little b—hs before the end of the game. As far as Rose he is a crook like the rest of the fag5. Face it MJ was the best there ever was and best there ever will be…. Those who can’t play don’t understand the game everyone hate’s the best not inless he on your team. if he played for the pistons your punk a– would have loved him

    Jimmy, I’ve heard the rumor about Jordan going to baseball because of gambling. I’ve never heard anything about his father’s death being connected to that.

    I’m a big fan of Occam’s razor: the simplest explanation is usually best.

    The Rake, I always wanted Jalen with the Pistons, too. It’s a shame it never worked out.

    JT, yes, If he played for the Pistons I’d love him. But that’s exactly why I hate him.
