Michael Jordan is still, to this day, the greatest player to ever play the game

His Airness, Air Jordan, Flight No. 23.

Michael Jordan is still, to this day, the greatest player to ever play the game. There isn't much to be said that hasn't been already. He revolutionized not just his position but the entire NBA and put the league on the map in terms of worldwide popularity. He is a global icon and the most marketable athlete in all of sports.

Jordan did what few others could ever do. He dominated every game he played. He had no weakness—scoring (check), rebounding (check), passing (check), defense (check), clutch (double-check).

Jordan is probably the greatest scorer to ever play the game, as he is tied with Wilt Chamberlain for the highest points per game average with 30.1 a game. He could score at will from anywhere on the court. His plays would usually finish in ferocious high-flying dunks. His defense was suffocating for opposing guards and he is far and away the most clutch player the league has ever seen. He hit numerous game-winning shots over his illustrious career.

His achievements are jaw-dropping, as Jordan was a 14-time NBA All-Star, 10-time scoring champion (record), 10-time All-NBA First Team, one-time All-NBA Second Team, nine-time All-Defensive First Team, one-time Defensive Player of the Year, NBA Rookie Of the Year, two-time Slam Dunk champion, three-time All-Star Game MVP, five-time NBA MVP, six-time NBA Finals MVP and six-time NBA champion.

No question about it, Jordan was and still is the greatest.
