Default Let Jordan pick 2 Teammates every year like Lebron.

Leaving your own team to ring chase is ok. But to have to team up with 2 all Stars is some sucker shit. That's why Lebron and Kevin Durant are moist as hell.

What if Mike pulled a Lebron and landed and played with Gary Payton and let's say David Robinson.

Scottie Pippen is far, far, better than anyone the Cavs put around him in the first 7 seasons of his career. I have no problem with him bailing on the Cavs. Running back to them when they got some decent pieces and Wade was declining was a bitch move, though.

The problem wasn't bailing on the Cavs, it was joining Bosh and Wade. If he went to NY or something, everybody would have been fine with him. LeBron even bragged about how easy it would be.

Anti-NY people wouldn't have been fine with it, but at least he wouldn't have ran to a stacked team.

Did you really try to put Love on Robinson's level?
Where is Kyrie's DPOY?
Love has an MVP and DPOY award?

LeBron haters just make shit up at this point.

Are you sayin Mike would pick someone else over Rodman and Pippen? Could he really improve on a 72-win season, and a 3-peat? Call me crazy but I dont think Mike is trading Pippen and Rodman and that success for any other 2 teammates. He had the perfect fit at the time for him.

Really good point too. Mike didn't win without his amazing cast, so lets chill about LeBrons cast. I know Mike wasn't winning a thing before Pip.

But did you see how badly Wade performed in 2014, it was pretty bad. I also don't know if the only reason he left was a declining Miami. I think he also did want to come back to Cleveland for obvious reasons. The dude said its bigger then basketball so yeah...

I was thinking about Stars that were on bad franchises and whether staying or leaving benefited them. A few names I thought of:

LBJ, KG, Pierce, Dirk, CP3, Allen

Left
LBJ = Was rewarded in 2012, 13, 16 with a ring
KG = Was rewarded in 2011 with a ring
Allen = Was rewarded in 2008, 13 with a ring

Stayed
Dirk = Was rewarded in 2011 with a ring
Pierce = Was rewarded in 2008 with a ring
CP3 = No reward only punish

Just a weird thing I thought up

Lebron leaving to go play with Wade/Bosh is like Jordan leaving to play with a Payton/Kemp caliber tandem. They probably wouldn't be 72-10, but they'll be scarier. Three-peat easily.

Kyrie/Love/TT is like a prime Tim Hardaway/Zo/PJ from 95-98. Three-peat again.

Pippen's highest ppg in any playoffs was 22.
The year before Lebron joined Wade, wade averaged 33 in the playoffs.

MJ always did MORE with LESS, and that includes making the playoffs with no all-star as a rookie while Lebron had Big Z in 2003 and still couldn't lead his team to the playoffs.

You are very wrong. Kyrie/Love/TT record without Lebron show that they are no where near Hardaway/Zo/PJ.
And after 2011, Wade wasn't a superstar anymore. He started to decline very rapidly. Bosh was never that good. He played great on a bad team just like Aldridge did.

These a/b/c without d vs w/x/y without z mean nothing.
