    Default Anthony Davis already has made more all star games than Scottie Pippen

    Davis still has a good 7 years left in him

    Jordan would have won less with AD. Worse fit.

    He would have won even less with Kyrie.

    LeBron has a perfect playoff record in series where AD has been healthy and playing.
    jordon does not in playoff series where The Great Scott Pippen has been healthy and playing.

    Horace Grant and B.J. Armstrong have made more all-star games in their first season without jordon dragging them down than they have in all of their other seasons with jordon dragging them down combined.

    I don't even like Lebron. Some things said are just stupid. Some dude wants to spite Lebron by bringing up Mr Glass' AS games?

    Possibly but it would have more to do with health. Davis would drag a big out of the paint hit jumpers all day or score on post ups. And while Jordan rested he would be even better to run the offense through than Pippen. It would be a different fit but both guys were versatile and individually great enough to make it work.

    Bulls would be in dire need of a player maker though. I know Jordan played point for some time in the late 80s, but he was most dangerous from the triple threat. Some point that could bring up the ball and play serviceable defense would suffice, but Paxson and Kerr wouldn't be those guys. It would completely change the Bulls' make up.

    It's hard to argue with 6 rings and I am not trying to say they would be better. But just talking about as an on paper pairing there is no player that you couldn't pair with Davis. Neither Jordan nor Davis had any weaknesses in their game for the opponent to exploit. The only concern would be that Davis had bad luck with injuries.

    Dragging them down says this mouthbreather, lol. MJ made them champs, numbskull. They didn't win shit in '94, neither when they went to other teams (except Grant who wasn't even third wheel on the Shaq, Kobe Lakers).

    So far Bran as a Laker, no AD, no playoffs.

    I do agree to the extent that on a blank team they'd be great to build around, but I don't think AD could take Pippen's roster spot and they'd be as good.

    Yet it didn't stop casual thurston (tpols aka a kobe stan who also berates pippen) from thinking that he was actually lew alcindor amidst the title run of the 2020 disney bubble. Only to find afterwards that davis was never the same player again.

    What decent gm and owner wouldn't take Jordan and Davis and do their best to build around them? Only some Donald Sterling type wouldn't try and win a championship.
