Before Justin Jefferson was born, Michael Jordan already had retired from the NBA, played baseball, played in the NBA again, then retired for a second time. We get old quickly don’t we.

It's a shame some of y'all didn't see the GOAT play. He won 11 NBA titles. His best run was 8 in a row.

Jordan didn't win 11 NBA titles, you must be thinking of Bill Russell. LOL Also, Jordan could have won 8 titles in a row had he not retired the first time!

That graphic of the highest rated rookie WRs can't be right. I was told at the combine, at the draft, and in all the broadcasts of their games that those Bama WRs were the best of the class. Suck it, Tide.

When we talk about guys in the draft - guys we played against or watched play in other big games, I'm here to tell you, the ONLY ones who would might have challenged our Top 3 from 2019 were Lamb and maybe Higgins.

yeah, all of last season the game announcers like big mouth Gary Danileson, Kirk Herbstreit, and others as well as all of the nations sports medias kept talking about how great the Alabama WR's were like H Ruggs, Jerry Jeudy, Devonta Smith, and J Waddle. But I thought LSU's WR's JJ, J Chase, and T Marshall were all better. And now I think all of these so called important people is starting to see just that.

Well, that would be great for the kid. Sign that endorsement deal! Cha-Ching! I didn't think the kid was that good when he first started out his career at LSU, he had lots of drops early on, but he worked and worked, and now look at how it's all paid off. God Bless him and his family!

I'm a few years older than JJ and got into basketball at a really really young age because my family loved it, and I have only the vaguest memories of Michael Jordan being in the NBA. He was a Washington Wizard.
