That's beside the point that Ben wallace was neither better than Hakeem or David Robinson at D at the Center position in the first place. At his peak and prime I do have him 3rd for the modern NBA, though.
    All MJ can do is be the goat defender at his position and provide goat inspiration and example to his teammates...

    He's much closer to Wallace/Russell defensively than they are to his offense

    And you didn't even think Russell averaged 9 ppg ever, remember? Now I showed you 2 Finals where he was carried on offense, so you move the goal posts.. and he had other Finals with 11 and 13 ppg

    Not really. They are not close to what he is offensively and he isn't close to them defensively. You can obsess about the meter, but it changes nothing.

    Imagine if lebron did that.. you're just using a double standard to degrade MJ
    If twice is "a lot" what about a 1-9 frequency rate?

    That would be THREE 1st round exits

    Jordan lost in the first round A LOT

    MJ was one of the best defenders in the league

    Russell/Wallace were nowhere near the best offensive players in the league

    You bias is making you look real dumb

    93 opponent FG % rank 15
    94 opponent FG % rank 12

    Their defense actually got better with Pete Myers

    Bulls bullshitted the regular season in 93' to prepare for the goat accomplishment of the modern era (3-peat).. they only won 57 games just like the Warriors this yr

    This is common knowledge

    But I'll respond more directly to your post - MJ improved the bulls' offense from 14th in the league (94') to #2 all-time (91-93'), without any drop-off in defensive rank (4th, 7th, 4th from 91-93', versus 6th in 94')

    Teams have a FINITE amount of energy to expend on both ends and improvements on one end take away from the other... But MJ is the goat 2-way player, so his presence allowed vast offensive improvement with no drop-off on D.. ..

    Bulls' defense ranked 4th, 7th, and 4th in 91-93'

    So no drop-off from 1994 (6th)

    despite improvement from #14 on offense (94') to #1 in 91/92' and 2nd in 93'.. the 92' offense was #2 all-time

    So wtf are you talking about 13th?.. you made that up to derail or because you have no response

    So again, teams have a FINITE amount of energy to expend on both ends - improvements on one end take away from the other... But MJ is the goat 2-way player, so his presence allowed vast offensive improvement with no drop-off on D.... MJ enabled a 2-way team.. ..

    The Bulls were 7th in '93 and 6th in '94. Not to mention the FACT that they were 2nd in '95. You truly are on massive idiot.

    What does first option mean? The criterion is suspect. Undervalues terrific playmakers, defenders, and those with a more unique skill set. Unsurprising the one pushing this criterion is a Jordan fan.

    Which basically means he is slowly starting to realize that LeBron is the greatest. I knew this day would come where he would finally accept it and I know it wouldn't be pretty
