When frequently watching ESPN or in conversations with numerous amounts of people, Michael Jordan is always refereed to as the best basketball player of all-time, because HE won 6 championships. Other players such as LeBron James, Tim Duncan, and other elite basketball players are always refereed to the amount of championships that they individually have won. This statement is suggesting that basketball is a team sport. It is obviously not and takes 5 players to make a team. MJ, LeBron, Tim all have won 0 championships. The bulls, heat, and spurs on the other hand is a different story. A team wins championships, not individual players.
