Yeahhh.... I disagree wholeheartedly with both of these things. You're treating Scottie Pippen like a role player, while he was a top 25-30 all-time player, himself. And as far as defense goes, I would argue that Lebron's impact on defense is probably greater than MJ's.
Kenny Smith said it best, no other player in history had the amount of success that MJ did while being the only player on his team to demand a double and triple team. Add with that what MJ did on the defensive end is just too unbelievable.
