Jordan was a complete killer and scoring machine.It was clear that Michael was going to be AT LEAST a superstar but his Bulls teams were **** until they started building around Michael. I dont see that same killer instinct in Pascal. Michael never played like **** during his climb to championship. Pascal is like up and down. Pascal has been playing doo doo since the bubble. I know its a different situation because of Covid but when was the last time Michael had a bad season? Even when Michael came out of retirement he didnt have that bad of a season. I dont think Pascal has that killer instinct that Michael has. Maybe it will come next season but after this bubble. I dont see it.
The problem with comparing MJ and Pascal is that MJ was the 3rd overall pick and the greatest of all time.
Pascal is the 27th pick and already far exceeded his draft pick value.
I swear to god this title is turning out to be wasted on the most unappreciative group of fans. A 'found money' season where we go to the 2nd round, game 7, show incredible fight. Sure our young star player (who helped us win the title btw) bombed, but it was clear growing pains.
What bugs me the most is those who believe he should carry this team. A 27th pick carrying the team? This is a team, not a superstar and a bunch of nobodies. In fact, I love this team because it isn't a superstar and a bunch of nobodies.
In fact I do not like going with a 7 1/2 man rotation in the playoffs. I'd like to see more players out there and less pressure on the main guys to perform.
Well, for me, its like people expected Pascal to carry this team after Kawahi left. I think that was a bit of stretch. Just watching Pascal play with Kawahi last year, me personally, I can see that Pascal is a great 2nd option and an excellent and elite role player. The comparison of Michael to Pascal. Thats not even close. And I do agree. I love this team precisely because they are a well put together team that plays well together.
