Question Should MJ/Pippen be considered one person on the GOAT list?

They're mentioned so often together, their names are practically synonymous.

Everyone always talks about "Michael and Scottie." Very similar to Stockton and Malone.

Considering MJ didn't actually win anything without Pippen, should we essentially combine them into a single person for the purpose of rankings?

For example:

1. Lebron
2. Kareem
3. Pippen-Jordan
4. Shaq
5. Bird
6. Magic

etc


Your thoughts?

Stuff like this is actually difficult to define, in terms of the layers of agenda and the true motive.

Like... disrespecting MJ to prop up LeBron is obvious. But like I said, there are layers... one of which is... why? Like why do that in the first place? Then there's the aspect of trying to goad anti-bran trolls, MJ fans, and Kobe fans into responding. Again, why? If you actually sit down and try to figure out the real reasons for posting shit like this, it's difficult to pinpoint. The only obvious part is that it's very gay.

Bran has been irrelevant without colluding and the 2nd best finals option in history.

Nullified.

They where the most "DYNAMIC" Duo of All Time. Some duos are great offensively like Magic and Jabbr or Stockton to Malone but they where not as dynamic: Pippen and Jordan had both great offense and defense together.

lol y'all got jokes

the reality is that MJ and Kobe are the only guys skilled enough to win with minimal help - Pippen and Pau - that's all they needed

it isn't a coincidence that only MJ/Kobe won multiple rings with only 1 all-star teammate.. no one else did that, except Shaq (who had kobe), and hakeem (when MJ was playing baseball)
