    Default Jordan won 6 rings in a weak 22-27 team league, half were expansion.

    22 teams in the league when MJ was drafted, 27 teams when MJ retired

    Half were brand new expansion teams (full of D-Leaguers, bench warmers, and Euro scrubs) so there was only really 12-14 legit teams in MJs era


    What do you value more, Jordan only making 6 Finals and 6 rings in a weak 14 team league or LeBron's 10 Finals and 4 rings in a legit 30 team era?

    6 Finals is borderline top 10. Kobe got to 7.

    Magic, Kareem, Russsell, LeBron all made 9 or more.

    Charles Barkley, 1994:

    "The league has deteriorated. You have bad general managers drafting bad players. It's like the NFL. The older players are moving on, and the younger ones aren't there yet. You look at some of the guys starting in this league these days and it makes you shake your head."

    Dennis Rodman, 1997:

    "We could not have won 70 games playing against 1980's teams."

    Larry Bird, 1996:

    "I think the expansion teams have really hurt the league, I think it's depleted the talent in our league."

    Bob Costas, 1996:

    "Dr. J had Larry and Magic to test himself against, there's nothing comparable to that quality of competition at the top for these Chicago Bulls. So it seems a little awkward to talk about the Bulls as one of the best teams of all time."

    Jordan won in the only era where top 3 players in the league won league or finals mvp and also the USA won only gold medals.
