    And the jordan playing style once again won multiple rings with just one other all-star

    So proven across eras..

    Jordan style is simply the best way to yield the best chemistry and teamwork, so the team doesn't need ridiculous talent like lebron needs with his lower ball movement style.

    That's why MJ is 6/6 and #1 on the list

    Kobe is 21-31 lifetime when playing against Duncan. 39-43 if you count the playoffs, with 14 of those 18 playoff wins coming when Shaq was leading the Lakers and doing all the heavy lifting.

    MJ won with less (only 1 all-star teammate) and would've been unfathomable with 2 like lebron had to face the Spurs and Warriors

    Heck, Lebron teamed up with Wade.. .. that alone gave him the most talent in the league and he was favored against the Spurs.. against the Warriors, he had another big 3 that was favored in 15' before kyrie went down

    List the players MJ defeated in the playoffs: Magic, Shaq, Isiah, Ewing, Malone, Barkley, Drexler, Payton, Dominique

    Those guys rank higher overall than Duncan, Curry, Durant, and then crap like DeRozan, Horford.... And obviously, shaq/penny destroy hibbert/george... And garnett/pierce/allen were all 35 years old when lebron beat them, while Isiah/dumars/rodman were 27-29 when MJ beat them

    And on and on.. MJ faced and defeated better players than lebron..

    All of MJ's wins except 92' was like beating the equivalent of a Spurs-level team

    The Spurs sometimes had higher net efficiency because they faced weaker comp in the late 00's than the stacked 90's west - it was 3-4 spurs teams playing each other back then, hence them taking turns losing to MJ in the Finals as 60-win Finals losers.. So MJ would smash the Spurs.. 3-0 in Lebron's shoes

    And look at the 2 times MJ faced Duncan in 98' - dominated him, won without pippen.. sure Duncan was only the most prepared rookie ever

    I’m fine with this list. Is there anything that sticks out to you?
    So MJ beat 5 guys on the list.. set the playoff record against another..

    and Isiah who must've barely missed the list

    He also played against nearly everyone on the list

    I watched the video and I don't really understand what it means. (I do speak English.)

    So... what does it mean? What exactly did Tim Donaghy do? Was he making the right calls or not? How did this work?

    Agreed. He should be higher no doubt.

    LeHose James took over #1 since the last update, IMO..
    He should be at least #2, but yes I agree should be #1
