Facts are facts. The Giants were the best team in the NFL that year, and Jordan took the Bulls from a LOTTERY team to playoff team by adding Jordan.
How is that fact? In the NFL playoffs, the best team rarely wins due to the single elimination tournament format. It's actually the worst of the major sports in that regard.
In the NBA, rarely will you have superior teams losing to lesser competition, outside of ridiculous matchup problems.
