He couldn't carry a top team offensively because he wasn't a good enough shooter but he was still a guy who could switch between point guard and small forward, not exactly a easy thing to pull off, and he was very good at getting to the basket.

19-20 points is not chicken feed and when you can switch between offensive ball distributor and small forward, and you're an incredibly versatile and adept defender... you're not just a very good player, you're a great player.

Also, he wasn't just there for two or three years. He was there every year, played every playoff game in those six championship runs. He was Robin, not Batman but he was as good of a Robin as I've seen.

Lebron & Bosh >> Aldridge & West

Portland didn't regress like everyone anticipated when Aldridge left. Maybe we found out a little bit about him.

Re: Pippen, that year Jordan "retired", he got the Bulls to the Eastern finals. That was the year of the controversial Hue Hollins foul call on Pippen, and when Pippen didn't want to go back into the game to take a final shot.

He had two great games against the Thunder then very little. The Thunder basically dared the Spurs to keep going to him rather than scrambling all over the place and it worked.
