Bill didn't win all 11 titles by himself, it's a team sport. Plus, Bill had much more better supporting casts(mutiple hall of fame) than Jordan. Bill could have won NOTHING had he played for a lousy team. Jordan was a bigger factor in Chicago's 6 titles than Bill in Boston's 11 titles.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
