"The power struggle between Jordan and Collins was never more evident than in the 1990 (sic. it was 1989) playoffs against Detroit. In the fifth game of the conference finals, Jordan attempted just 8 shots; the Bulls lost, and were eliminated at home in the next game. Questions flew at Jordan and Collins after the game, only to be met by the standard response about doublet-teaming tactics. But Collins and Jordan knew otherwise. The coach had told Jordan he was shooting too much; he had taken 31 percent of the team's shots in the first four games. Collins felt more players had to be involved in the offense for the team to be effective. Jordan, who usually took such suggestions as criticism, took only 8 shots just to make a point."

thats weird i remember when they accused kobe of doing that and he got killed for it

but again MJ was the first therefore he will always be the revolutionary

you can't be second because you will never be better than the first thats why people stopped comparing lebron to MJ its a dead end comparison

The main reason I posted this is because if Jordan did this today, he would hear about it non-stop all summer and into the first week of training camp.

Jordan benefited from the NBA's resurgence of the 1980's, combined with the fact that he could control the media in a way that no one will ever be able to again.
