Am I the only one that could read comments all day and still be entertained? Here are a few great comments of digg readers after reading a top ten list concerning who was touted as the next MJ:

The reason there will not be a Jordan is there are few that are as intense and work as hard as he. He did not rely on talent, he took the Basketball world. He wasn't given it. He was cut when he was younger, and partly used that to fuel his desire.

Plus he could'nt hit a curve, so Baseball was out

***He didn't rely on talent? uhh, ok. Very true about the curve though.

He totally forgot about Mikael Pietrus aka "French Michael Jordan." I live abroad in Marseille for two years (during which time I successfully opened 5 Quizno's franchises and only three failed - which set a franchise record) and people would flock to games to see this "man who could fly across the Parisan air." Everyone was sure he'd go pretty sure but has never really caught on and isn't talked about too much in France anymore.

***Wow. That's all I can think of here. I don't know who posted this comment but he has rightfully earned the title, "captain douche bag/loser." Opened 5 franchises and only 3 failed. Plus, who cares about the French?

There won't be another MJ unless Scientists grow one in a lab.

***Many don't realize that we actually quite close.......

JR Rider? Are you kidding me!?!

The reason all of these will never be the next "Michael Jordan" is because they each have their own style of play. They are who they are!

***The first of many comments by Digg users who try and be unique by stating the obvious.

So who are the closest players to MJ? Sorry i was side tracked by all the fine women on the site.

***And lastly let it be noted that most users fit a certain "demographic."

I am currently taking Public Speaking at TCC (Tacoma Community College). The next speech is a persuasive speech. I proposed several topics to my professor. He said two of them were very good. I don't know which one to choose, maybe you can help me. Should I attempt to persuade the audience to save money or to eat fresh food? The choice is up to you.

"The Lamborghini then?"

The movie is a little long. This is much more satisfying.
