POST SEASON: (16 games)

36.7ppg on 51.4%FG, 32.0% 3FG, 83.6%FT, 7.2 rebs. 6.8 assists, 2.8 steals, 0.9 blocks, 3.5 turnovers....53.3% eFG%.

Took the Bulls to Game 7 vs. the eventual champion Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals....good chance of advancing to the Finals and beating Portland who struggled against the Pistons losing 4 out of 5 games.....unfortunately Jordan was the only one who showed up as the Bulls turned in one of the greatest choke jobs in NBA history:

Box score of that game here:

Jordan put this team of young players on his back and and carried them as far as anyone could, only to be FAILED when the pressure was at its peak...a downer to one of the greatest seasons performed in history.

And Jordan wasn't even voted MVP this season....

It's a damn shame that the Bulls didn't make the Finals that year.

I consider this season Jordan's best non-finals making playoff run...
