MJ played 5 seasons without his hall of fame sidekick, Scottie Pippen.
His combined record in those seasons: 182-228.
All losing seasons.
LeBron James without his hall of fame sidekick, Dwyane Wade?
60+ wins. Deep playoff runs. Finals.
James shits 50 wins in his sleep (he shits in his sleep!?).
This one is not even close.
