It turns out there were actual REASONS why Lebron chooses to team-hop, whereas MJ didn't have to..
And there's reasons why MJ always got the most out of his team and never underachieved, whereas lebron has lost several times as the favorite and frequently HASN'T gotten the most out of his team - heck, even his Heat teams should've been all-time great instead of 2/4
Ultimately, a star's playing style and leadership affects teamwork and teammate performance, and this impacts whether a team can develop organically more than anything else.. Krause made the no-brainer move to draft MJ. That doesnt make him "good" or better than any other GM.. Most of krause's other picks didn't work out or were standard.. But he got lucky with MJ, and the rest played itself.. MJ made krause's job easier by being so good krause didnt need to search for a dominant post player like mchale, parish, kareem or shaq/pau that bird/magic/kobe needed for all their rings.
Its funny because people cite giys like paxson, kerr and longley part of MJ's stacked roster when they were ordinary single-digit role players that every team has.. Pippen was the only non-role player other than jordan
