              Wade is better than Pippen. Kyrie, Bosh, Love are better than what Jordan had. Plus, he has AD now.

                Don't let Skip fool you, Scottie got hurt and only played 44 games in 98. That's why he didn't make the all star team

                  Jordan better coach who can name Lebron coaches again? Lebron played with d wade bosh Kyrie for a combined 7 years and Kyrie got better when Lebron got there. Plus d wade was a shell of himself. Skip loss this one! Skip bugging Pippen was a all star when Jordan loss the first time.. and got to the conference finals in a game 7 against the lakers.. skip disrespecting Scottie Pippen. And Dallas Mavericks in 2011 was unstoppable they smoked everyone that year. Pippen didn’t make the 1998 all star game because he was injured for a good portion of that season. Bj Armstrong and Horace Grant were all stars in 1994 when Jordan left.

                      Pippen and Jordan did some losing before they got to winning.. Lebron never gave anyone that chance that's why his newest member is Anthony Davis and dwight Howard and got rid of the other up and coming stars

                            Scottie Pippen was trash with the Rockets. I still think that Scottie is better than average.

                              to me MJ had better team. Not the most all-star teammates. MJs Bulls won 55 (!!!) games when MJ retired, there's no way any of Brons teams would win 55 games without him.

                                But when Jordan came back they won 72 games.

                                Jordan was the biggest reason they won. Jordan always outplayed Pippen in playoffs or finals.

                                  Jordan played 4x 60 win teams in finals out of 6, went 4-0. Lebron has played 4x 60 win teams in finals, went 1-4.

                                  When you don't bring up Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, and one of the greatest teams to never win a championship The 1997-98 Utah Jazz. Jordan was just better then all those players.

                                Jordan's teams were mostly built through the draft (i know Pippen was drafted by the Sonics but never played a game for them). Lebron's teams were manufactured by him moving to teams with all-stars already in place or his teams bringing in all-stars to play with him.

                                  Shannon really sat here and said Michael Jordan 😂 MJ had Pippen a Great Player Rodman a Great Player maybe you can say Horace Grant was a border line All Star but come on LeBron Had Wade Bosh Ray Allen Kyrie Kevin Love & its getting even wider now that he have AD

                                    Man, the way I see it, Lebron was the supporting cast the year Kyrie took down the dubs with his clearout im doing this 3

                                      I’ve never knew Pippen was better than Wade Oh wait HES NOT Horace Grant best years was with The Magic Rodman was far from the Pistons Rodman and The Triangle Offense Pippen was the main distributor cuz the offense was based on ball movement

                                        Ball movement is what the warriors run now. While Lebron's teams are give to Lebron or Dwayne Wade or Kyrie or if your open then Lebron might pass it to you.

                                      I guess having the greatest coach of all time isn't a factor at all.

                                        Lebrons played with Kyrie, Kevin Love, SHAQ, Rondo, Dwade, Bosh, Ray Allen. I’m sure I’m missing people but They both had great help.They are both great. Jordan owned the 90s, Kobe the 2000s and Lebrons the 10s and Duncan and the squrs are sprinkled in each decade.

                                          Lebron has had some trash teams around him-and still drug them kik'n and screaming to finals.MJ had a few horrible teams early on also-the MJ scores 63 and they still lose years.

                                                    If you count the all stars and former all stars Lebron has played with vs Michael Jordan and I feel like the long list of help Lebron has had probably played with more of these players than Jordan.

                                                          Michael Jordan had more help. Done. 2020 will be the first year Lebron will be on a stacked team since Miami.

                                                            Pippen is better help than Wade, Bosh, Love, Irving, Davis? Pippen only all star with MJ. Rodman wasn't even an all star on the bulls. It's obvious lebron had more help, but Jordans team had better teamwork. That's why Jordan won more rings. Better teamwork, and MJ was an overall better player than lebron.

                                                            Only one player made all star team with Jordan : Pippen. Lebron had Wade, Bosh, Love, Irving with teams of 3 all stars. Now, he also needs AD and Cousins.

Wade, Ray Allen, Bosh, Kyrie, now AD, maybe even Love.... MJ has three teammates in the HoF....Pippen of course, Rodman was only there for 3 years, and Parish was there for 1 year and didn’t do anything anyway lol...

Jordan had Pippen who’s a top 20 player of all time and he was an MVP candidate when Jordan left for minor league baseball and almost led them to the finals by himself in 95. He also had Rodman who led the league in rebounding 7 times and is a top 5 defensive player ever and is a hall of famer. Also Lebron played with Wade and Bosh for 4 seasons and Jordan played with Pippen for 11 and 3 with Rodman.
