Can just tell i don't want to have this conversation with you. Try not talking to people like they haven't been playing this game as long as you to start.
You want to talk historical context, burning just farmed. That's the context in which he was "successful." Sure, he innovated a ton of patterns and all of that, but it's beyond negligent of a case to make that the current crop of players aren't far and away ahead of the capacity of "historically" successful players.
Two points that perhaps you can wrap your head around:
1) Burning never even won a TI (granted FY hasn't [yet] either)
2) more importantly, do people who figured out how to pick or whatever other nascent techniques and strategies factor into GOAT discussions of basketball?
