    Hey, I doing a preliminary defense paper on weather or not Michael Jordan changed/ revolutionized the NBA for my thesis class. I know this is super random, but I'm at a rock right now.:confused: I'm almost set on why he did. I just need some ideas/ reasons on why/how he did not. I would very much appriciate it!:redface:

    however I am sure you can find the same information other places.

    Counter question: What did he do to change the game? Make the guard matter? Magic already did that. Lead a team as a guard? Magic again. Noncenter? Bird and Magic. "flying"? Look up Dr. J.

    Amazing player, possibly the best player of all time. Not sure if he revolutionized the game, as the Center position is, once again, the most dominant position in the game (Shaq, Duncan, Wallace), and it was for the two years he was out (Dream). The only time that the Center was NOT the most dominant position in the game was during the middle to late 80s and the early to middle 90s, also known as the Magic, Bird, and Jordan eras. Otherwise, the game has always been dominated by big men.
