DD blew past Kobe a few times in that game, twice using spin moves. Why is it Raps fans seem to think the only players who aren't busts are the ones with obvious HOF potential?
BTW Jordan didn't dominate the L from game 1. He was a very good volume scorer who relied on athletic ability at first. He learned (over the following 5 years) how to shoot with range, how to incorporate the passing game and most importantly how to defend. He wasn't GOAT right from the get-go.
