    Neither could Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.

    True.
    No one could challenge Jordan I agree, Pippin in my personal opinion one of the most over rated players of all time.

    I used to think that until I saw him play without MJ. Same for James Worthy. I always thought he was a product of Magic until Magic was gone.

    Both Scottie and James had better individual seasons without having MJ and Magic on their teams.

    Well both got more shots once MJ and Magic left and were the focus of the teams. I don't think Worry get's the credit he deserves but I think Scottie get's too much.

    You young guys have short memories! Russell had 11 titles, I don't know how many were with Cosey.

    These kids today, I'm tellin' ya...

    Cousy and Russell - Six titles together: '57, then a five-pete, '59-'60-'61-'62-'63.

    Both named one of 50 Greatest Players in NBA History (50th Anniversary Edition).

    And Kareem had 6 while Magic had 5. Not the same I know. But it's not like they were chopped liver together either.

    Side note: Kareem's first was with Oscar Robertson in Milwaukee. Cousey never won it without Russell.

    Wasn't Harper on the Kobe teams? (BTW, I'm not googling. )

    There was another smaller guard I thought on those '99-'02 teams as well.

    The 1980 team had a broken Landsberger, Jim Chones, Jamal Wilkes (I will give you he was a better shooter than any support Kobe/Shaq had), Norm Nixon. I can't remember if Rambis had been drafted yet. Cooper was off the bench.

    They beat a Philly team with Dr. J still in his prime, Darryl Dawkins, Caldwell Jones, Bobby Jones but I'm having trouble remembering their guards. (Bibby? Collins?)
    Mo Cheeks and Lionel Hollins started guard and Bibby was the backup.

    Bibby was on the downhill slide of a decent career at that point. Collins was also declining. But Mo Cheeks was young and on his way. Toney arrived for the '80-81 season.
