Phil had the greatest and most self-dedicated/motivated player in NBA history. Pippen wasnt too shabby either. Grant/Rodman could play and they always had some decent role players.
Shaq is a dominant center, who came into his prime years while in LA.
Duncan is a dominant post player as well, and Pop has used late-round draft picks and free agent journeymen to fill in the gaps. He's got a pretty nice track record when it comes to personnel decisions.
