Default how come Jordan never lost in the Finals?

Was he really that good or was his competition really not that good? He played in an era too in which true dominant centers played (Hakeem, Ewing, Robinson, Shaq, Mourning, etc.) as well as dominant big men (Webber, Barkley, Kemp, Malone, etc.) and yet all these other teams still couldn't beat Jordan.

Also, bonus question - can you guys name another player who never lost in the Finals ***and*** was also the FMVP each time?

He was basically a definition of a frontrunner

Never won a single series in which he was not a favourite

People act like Jordan made the finals every year of his career. He made the finals when he finally had a good team. A mixture of individual and team dominance. Jordan gets a lot but not all the credit.

Because bulls only made to the finals when they had the best squad in the NBA. Don't get mad that i just wrote that. Them being best was because jordan played for them but also because their team had all the right pieces to complement Jordan.
