Please don't do this. Who is it written by? Eiichiro Oda+ editors? Who gets credit for One Piece? Who is the author? I'm sorry, but your points make zero sense. Just because Oda bounces ideas off of his editors and accepts their input when he deems it worthy, doesn't make One Piece a team story. Quit while you're ahead.
See, nobody said it's a team story, I just said there is a team effort and Oda is the executioner. Their effort varies from one to anothet and Oda has the biggest work to do.

You're mixing team and individual sports. Boxing isn't a team sport. Who exactly was Mike Tyson's coach? Did his coach get handed the belt, was his coach the greatest boxer of all time?
What does team and individual sport means? Why does a football coach matters while a boxing coach doesn't matter.
And your knowledge of boxing is limited at best. It does't matter but for the sake of this argument, just accept that the analogy is fair and move on with your life.
