Why the gap between Jordan and Pippen is so big in the mind of some fans?

Jordan has the alpha mentality and a better mid range/jump shot game.
then...

is Jordan a better Defender?
Is Jordan a better Ballhandler?
Is Jordan a better 3pt shooter?
etc.
Jordan was better shooting off the dribble, shooting off screens, shooting from the post, breaking down defenders 1 on 1, and making layups in traffic. He had a better first step, better footwork, more moves. Pippen might've had just as much raw physical talent, but Jordan was infinitely more skilled offensively.
