Be Like Mike (Except the whole gambling part)

Lost amidst all of the Opening Day hoopla and NCAA National Championship anti-climaticism (word? Doubtful) was the fact that yesterday the greatest athlete of all time, Michael Jordan, was elected to the Hall of Fame. Now I know you're thinking, "Really? He sucked at baseball."

Well rest assured stat geeks and purists, this accolade is for his hardwood accomplishments only. Because when it came to shooting that little orange ball into the peach basket, no one (not even Iron Maiden) has ever done it better. Not Kobe. Not LeBron (amazing to be sure, but let's reconvene when he gets 6 rings). Not even Jeff Hornacek. MJ was the best there ever was and the best there ever will be. If you don't agree, well, you're probably too young (visions of Jordan in a Wizard uni dancing through your head) or worse, a Jazz fan.
