I was huge into collecting basketball cards when I was younger, and would always see the older cards and look at their stats... I'd see guys that put up way better numbers, but had never heard of them, so I would question just how great he is since you could find other players that had better numbers than him.
He was my hero when I was little so there was little doubt to me, as say a 5 year old kid, that he was the closest thing to a basketball God.
