I seem to recall it just sort of evolved from him being nicknamed "The Great One" to the "Greatest Ever" type dealeo. Morphed organically from about 81/82 to about 87 when after shattering just about every record in the book it was rather apparent, undeniable, that we were all witness to someone very special indeed. Remember too, he wasnt even the first pick in the OHA Midget Draft, selected 3rd. An awful lot of naysayers until he turned it upside down in Edmonton and even then, to this day, people who refuse acknowledge just how smart a player he was.
