There are millions upon millions of people who consider Jordan the GOAT, the greatest to ever do it, and unrivaled by anyone before or after.
Yet, some others feel that Jordan’s skills and talent have been overstated.
They even say that some modern NBA stars would be able to take on – and defeat – Jordan.
It's weird how Michael Jordan has become basically underrated by modern NBA fans. Dude holds like almost every record you see for a reason, and in a very short amount of time.

Farbod Esnasshari commented on the phenomenon of people downplaying Jordan, saying, “It’s weird how Michael Jordan has become basically underrated by modern NBA fans. Dude holds almost every record you see for a reason, and in a very short amount of time.”
While it is true that there are more people criticizing the love around Jordan today, there are many more who still consider him the greatest to ever do it.
Is his legacy really at risk?
If we started to list all of the awards and records that Jordan broke during his time in the league then this article would take forever to read.
The guy achieved so much during his time in the league.
He spent 15 years in the NBA, which is definitely a lot of time but also isn’t that long compared to the careers of some in the league today.
As time goes on, more and more people will downplay his skills because they didn’t witness it firsthand.
But the truth is that Jordan’s impact on the league and the way it was played and viewed will forever be strong in the NBA.
Others may come close but when it comes to trophies and impact and influence, no one surpasses His Airness.
