While I don't disagree with you, don't discount the effect that MJ had on his teammates. Particularly later in his career when Pippen and Rodman where past their prime. His intensity and unshakable confidence rubbed off on his team. His last couple of teams where not very different than these Miami teams. A couple of aging stars along with some good not great role players. I actually pulled for Utah the last couple of finals because I wanted to see Stockton get a ring. Utah was a better team too, but you just knew they couldn't get past Jordan.
