My genesis is deep, my hands are that of a God
That index finger
Must've been jammed/dislocated so many times he lost count
These are the gifts that make MJ one of a kind
Part of why he wasn't as effective as a Wizard(aside from the fact he was older) - once he severed that tendon in 99, he couldn't palm the basketball anymore after the surgery
And the jumper was still wet.
Top tier athleticism with superior body control and big hands
I think he still palmed it, but the index finger definitely limited the effectiveness of it.
I read a book on the Wizard years - I think he just couldn't do it as reliably because the finger was so fukked up after years and years of abuse; the surgery also removed his range of motion on the finger
I’d be palming more than just basketballs if my hands were that big.
Imagine palming Cherokee's ass with one hand.
He almost lost that finger with the Cigar cutter
That finger fukked up
That's every basketball player.
