The best player that ever played basketball was Michael Jordan. There is not a lot of debate surrounding that.
Did you know that during the six championship years for Michael Jordan, Jordan only had 7 triple-doubles? Scottie Pippen had twice as many, but is never considered the better player. Literally never.

You can hear The Herd with Colin Cowherd every weekday from 12-3 pm est. on Fox Sports Radio.
