AI's numbers are huge. He is the poster boy for getting 40+ points and his team losing.

Groupies, gambling and forced retirement aside, he was a horrible teammate and people only tolerated him because he won.

And it's continued on into his retirement. The Bobcats are a mess, he charges for promotional appearances to promote the team he owns and his HOF speech was downright embarrassing.

Perhaps if AI had Phil Jackson as a coach and a Scottie Pippen to play beside things would be different.

Also?
