Kansas City Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes just won another Super Bowl, which is why it’s high time again for people to break out those Michael Jordan comparisons. When it comes to winning in pro sports, it appears that the NBA legend remains the gold standard, and as far as many people are concerned, Mahomes has already earned the right to be in the same sentence as His Airness.
Via Kevin Clark:
The reason I think Mahomes is Michael Jordan is because Jordan relegated so many would-be legends to minor characters. He left literally no breathing room for anyone else and shaped the legacies of basically all his contemporaries. We might be seeing it again. He’s on his way.
Who Is The Michael Jordan Of The NFL: Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes Or Tom Brady?
However, one simply just doesn’t make an MJ comparison and walks away without hearing what the rest of the internet thinks about such a take. In this one, there’s been a major pushback from people who think that Tom Brady is closer to the former Chicago Bulls superstar shooting guard than the Chiefs signal-caller.
“He lost to a 40 plus year old Brady. That would be like Michael Jordan losing in the NBA Finals to Dr. J. And would be like Jordan leading the Wizards to the title in 04 or 05 (ie Tampa Bay),” replied one X user.
“Am I taking crazy pills? Brady had 7 super bowls AND beat Mahomes twice! Brady is why Mahomes has 3 instead of 5!” another person said.
“Brady is MJ. If Mahomes gets 5 more rings, he can be MJ,” chimed in someone who isn’t shutting the door on the idea that Mahomes could one day be widely viewed as the Michael Jordan of football.
From another commenter: “I don’t think Mahomes is going to have Reid as long as Jordan had Phil Jackson and Bellichick had Brady. So much rides on who follows up Reid, who I doubt has 5 years left in him.”
“He’s already lost a super bowl….he can’t be MJ…..MJ never lost when he reached the title game/series,” another one quipped.
Whether people agree with the take or not, Patrick Mahomes still has plenty of years to try and narrow the gap between him and Brady in terms of Super Bowl rings. Mahomes is only 28 and has the opportunity to pull off something not even Brady achieved, which is a Super Bowl three-peat.
