Again how many championships did Michael Jordan win without Scotty Pippen?

How does conduct off the court make someone less of a basketball player?

Was not saying he was. I was not disagreeing with you that Michael Jordan was the greatest of all-time. I was disagreeing with you that Michael Jordan won a NBA championship on his own. He did not.

I think Michael Jordan was the greatest all-around basketball player of all-time. Sure there were IMO better dunkers; Dr. J and Dominique Wilkins, better at stealing the ball; John Stockton, better at assists; John Stockton, Jason Kidd and Magic, and better shooters; Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, but Michael could do it all.

However, if I was in the Rockets front office in 1984, knowing what I know now, I would still pick Hakeem Olajuwon with the first pick. Nothing against Jordan, but Iím still more a fan of the Dream.

Kobe is great, but IMO he isn't even the greatest Laker. Magic still has that honor with Kareem Abdul Jabbar a close second.
