He wasn't as focused on the Bobcats as he should of been because his son was a uprising star, him and his ex wife were very supportive and Jordan said " he didn't want people to see his son as another Jordan, he wanted people to see him as his own person."

Winning the NBA championship is the challenge that every team wants to achieve at the end of the season. In Kobe Bryant’s 19 seasons, he won the championship title 5 times; Michael Jordan’s 15 seasons, he won the title 6 times. What makes Bryant’s 5 championships more impressive than Jordan’s 6 is that he was lacking “star power” on his team, while Jordan was surrounded by it. Michael Jordan had the benefit of playing with John Paxson, Steve Kerr, Horace Grant, Dennis Rodman, and Scottie Pippen during all of his championships, which made it easier for him to pull off his 6 NBA titles. For Michael’s first championship in the finals in 1991, his team won the series easily in a 4-1 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers.
