He did not make his teamates better, his game did not revolve around that, he was a scorer and a wery wery wery sore loser who had a great all around player in pippen with him along with great coaching staff and management who put the right type of players around him.
He is no doupt among the all time greatest, top 3 definatly i think but there is NO nba player Perfect and Jordan was FAR from perfect!
not to pile on, but Mj was indeed a good teammate....No, he was a great teammate... He helped develop Pippen into the player he became and he made sure his teammates were ready to compete thru his leadership in practice as well as in games..
he may not have always been a nice or pleasant teammate, but its absurd to say that a guy who led his teams to 6 championships was not a good teammate
