My statement for the opening round is that Michael Jordan is and probably always will be the best basketball player of all time.

I beg to differ. There are many other players who are better than Jordan. Her is a video that shows why Jordan isn't the best player of all time.
Debate Round No. 1

Michael Jordan was the most dominant player of his era. No other player was more dominant during there era than Michael was in his. Even NBA.com says Michael Jordan is the best player of all time. Some of Michael's achievements are:

6-6 in the NBA Finals with 6 Finals MVP Awards
5-time regular season MVP
10-time scoring leader
Made the All-NBA team 11 times
14-time All-star
Made All-Defensive team 9 times
These are just a few of Michael's achievements.

Michael was also a model of durability. From 1986-1991, he missed only one game, and didn't miss any games from 1995-1998. He even played through the flu in game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals.

Since my opponent has failed to post his argument for round two, I will list more of Jordan's achievements. Michael:

Led his team in scoring in 867 regular season games, and he led both teams in scoring in 700 of those.
Scored 29% of his team's points in his career.
Was the only rookie to lead his team in four different categories. (Scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals.)
Had the highest career PER. (Player Efficiency Rating)
Was the first player to win Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, and Most Valuable Player during his career.
