It is true that the two have extensive lists of accoplishments but...I have to go with Jordan. My decision comes with the thought that Jordan became the "man" w/out great players around him...he did not win a championship w/out other great players, but he was still the man prior to the arrival of Scottie Pippen and the rest of the pieces...Jerry always had the benefit of having,arguably, the best QB in the league at their times (Joe Montana & Steve Young) throwing him the ball.

Re: Will Smith: A Better Rapper or Actor?

I don't find Will to be a good rapper or actor. He plays the same character in almost every movie he is in. He is the cocky, funny black guy. When he tries to play a different character his lack of talent shows. From both MIB's, both Bad Boys, ID3, Wild Wild West, he is the same guy. When he strays from those characters he is bad. He was not believable in "Ali", in fact that was a disgrace. "Six Degrees of Separation" was a good movie in spite of him. That movie he did with Damon (I can't...

What's up with Smith's relationship to Jazzy Jeff? I haven't heard of Smith even mentioning Jeff's name in interviews in more than 5 years. Oh yeah, the movie with Smith and Damon is "The Legend of Bagger Vance." I must say I liked the movie. Maybe it's because I'm a rabid golfer, or maybe, I just got with the movie's message.

Well, Jeff did say he was a "Conservative with Libertarian leanings". That sounds somewhat similar to many Neocons. Well, Neocons are corporate Libertarians, they are governmental fascists who claim to be "minimalists" because they want government out of business, but have no problem with using govenrment to outlaw sexual freedom and women's reproductive rights if they are personally offended. That's what a Neocon is. It's up to Jeff to figure whether or not that sounds like him.
