Also a bit crazy that both are white. Would the hype be the same if they were women of color? IDK.
You're exactly correct. There was never ANY hype when Michael Jordan went head-to-head against Isaiah Thomas, Wilt Chamberlain challenged Bill Russell, or Julius Irving took on Magic Johnson. Absolutely no hype.
Yeah, because all those match-ups happened in college ball. Oh wait... no, they didn't.
Elvin Hayes vs Lew Alcindor and Bird vs Magic might have been the 2 most hyped matchups
No the hype would not be the same if they were women of color.
