His Airness, he of six NBA championships, six NBA Finals MVPs, five regular-season MVPs, three All-Star Game MVPs, a Defensive Player of the Year Award and the 1984-85 Rookie of the Year Award, deserves all of the platitudes.
He's a man who finished with the league's highest all-time points-per-game average (30.12), the most seasons leading the league in points (11), the most seasons leading the league in points per game (10) and the most games with at least 30 points (563), along with the highest-ever playoff scoring average (33.45 PPG).
Needless to say, picking out the 50 greatest highlights of his career wasn't exactly easy.
