Michael Jordan’s era of basketball in the 1980s and 1990s has been endlessly romanticized, and fans are constantly looking to point to someone as the next MJ.

LeBron James and Kobe Bryant have heard the most comparisons in recent decades, but a new rising superstar is the next to receive the bulk of those comparisons, much to the chagrin of Undisputed’s Skip Bayless.

Bayless discussed Jordan’s recent comparisons to Minnesota Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards and called it “unfair” to Edwards while adding that “we have so much to see” when it comes to Edwards, who is still only 22 years old.

Comparisons are easy to make, because Edwards not only resembles Jordan in size, athleticism, playing style, and toughness, but everyone has seen the split-face meme that shows just how close the facial resemblance is strange between the two.

Edwards literally looks like Jordan’s lost son, and Ant has done what he can lately to throw a blanket over that fire by saying, “He’s the GOAT.” I can’t be compared to him.

The comparisons are unfair to anyone who is 22, as they are unnecessary and put added pressure and unreasonable expectations on Edwards.

Fans should just enjoy the show and stop trying to connect the dots with the past all the time.

Edwards can be enjoyed and appreciated without being compared to the greatest of all time, because we’ve all seen this movie too many times.

Edwards receives unrealistic comparisons to Jordan, fails to live up to impossible expectations, and fans and media then tear him apart.
