Its Magic all the way people.
With MJ, his offense was so beyond 100% that his other capabilities got OVERSHADOWED unfortunately!
-His gambling defense (should've had atleast 2 DPOY titles, 1993 title is missing)
-His leadership skills (ask Kerr, Kukoc, Pippen, Phil Jackson, Tex winter)
-His intangibles were off the charts too.
Magic & Bird got due credit for leadership cuz of their lack of athletic ability.
MJ was just as fantastic floor general but his unebelievable athletic ability & offensive powers OVERSHADOWED everything else particularly his Defensive capabilities which were terrific too.
