Thank you kk. I’m no fan of the Roosters, but its hard not respect him. He’s got all the skills you need from a guy who you want to slot in anywhere in a pinch.

It was kinda like when Manly had Beaver Menzies running around. I hated Manly, but I loved Steve Menzies.

Nice point there. I am sure there are probably millions of fans and Jordan himself who would disagree with that ranking.

I never watched Bill Russell play too, but Simmons believes that he harnessed the belief that he needed his team mates and they needed him, and he maximized his skills to the tune of 11 championships.

When his team needed him to score, he scored, when his team needed him to protect the rim and rebound, he protected the rim and rebounded as well as anyone in history.

Jordan ruled as a tyrant, such was his sociopathic will to win. In his early years, he believed he needed to do it all himself.

He punched Steve Kerr in the head at practice, brutally teased rookies and veterans alike to the point where they had to seek psychological counselling, and abused teammates into intimidation. He got the results, but at a cost.

Some may say the argument is redundant, that comparing Jordan to Russell is like comparing Andrew Johns to Johnny Raper. It simply can’t be done.

I agree with you there Albo. Looks like you’ve got a pretty good idea of the secret yourself! Thats what I like about it for qualifying players. Guys don’t need to be the best of the best to understand it. Would certainly add Dale Finucane to that list.

Even though he was a rep player and they bash him for not winning a premiership, I always thought Hindy had a pretty good idea of the secret. He brought his skills to the table (motor, durability and defensive work) to maximize some of those surprise Parra years.

I concede that Cronk knows the secret. Clearly makes everyone better around him. Must have been an oversight on my part.

Who knows the secret in the NRL era?

I absolutely agree with you. There are some players who are almost too versatile for their own good, those who can be spread too thinly as a band aid fix.

As a Canterbury fan, this comment made me giggle and blush at the same time.
