Yes, Pippen started... 1 game... the last game of that series, which turned out great for the Bulls. Before that, he didn't have a game anywhere close to his game 5 or had no impact at all.
I never said Grant was better. I said it was arguable between them THAT year. Charles Oakley was better that series though.
Yes I did watch him play, he was one of my favourite players growing up.
- he played Great in Games 4 and 5 ( the deciding game 5 he was the difference)..Game 4 he played 30 minutes and had 15 points 5rebs and 2 Blk's...
no impact ?...especially for a rook?..RUserial?
- he started all of the games vs the Pistons.
By the end of the season Pippen was good enough to start in the playoff's...and come up huge for the Bull's in the Game 5 vs the Cavs...to help get them past the first round...
for the first time in what ...like 18 seasons
