    Default The lying media to naive fans: "the only way stack deck is joining a 73-win team"

    Lies

    The Heatles stacked the deck long before the Warriors

    and so did the 15' Cavs

    Both collusions were instant league favorites..

    It's extremely rare to have 3 elite first options on 1 team - magic/kareem/worthy is the only example I can think of

    And it's extremely rare to have a sidekick lead the entire playoffs in scoring like AD - only Kareem and Shaq compare as sidekicks

    That's irrelevant

    They're elite because of their stats/production capability

    How come Jordan couldn't lead his team past the 8 seed and 1st round sweeps without Pippen?

    For the entirety of his career?

    Anyone that thinks otherwise is a fool

    Pippen averaged 8 points when MJ made the 2nd round.. so anyone would've won with mj

    Anyone?

    Still waiting for an answer.

    "Coincidence" isn't. Jordan couldn't lead his team past the 8 seed and 1st rounds sweeps without Pippen. Why?

    For 3 years in a row Jordan with all his STATS could not get passed the 1st round and achieve better than the 8 seed without Pippen.

    Lying media don't tell this to naive fans.

    Pippen wasn't stacking the deck

    Whereas getting 2 pippens (2 stars) is stacking the deck.... Or getting a star that leads the whole league in scoring

    Why couldn't lebron make the playoffs without an all-star teammate?

    Zydrunas was the reigning 2-time all-star in 06

    Who's better... 88' pippen or 05' Zydrunas

    Waiting...

    2016. No other all-stars on his team.

    Beat a 73 win team. Oh by the way. 73 wins > 72.

    Still waiting.
