Again, Shaq's problem wasn't that Bryant and Penny got undeserving hype... His problem was that they simply got a lot of hype which subsequently took some of his shine away. Given the type of hype that Jordan would get, it would be a problem.
And then there are the problems Jordan would have, having to sacrifice his game in order to please a player who had a poor work ethic and often approached the game lackadasically...
