I love how you just say 'regressed" instead of actually adding substance to your statement. Here's a crazy thought. How about you actually value a player based on his impact and effectiveness on the court instead of a reserve spot in a meaningless game in February. And no, just because you don't make that all star game doesn't mean you're as good as Horrace Grant. You can't possibly be this stupid.
makes no sense.
Pip is an all star reserve a year ago. Then Pip looses the reserve position despite increasing his PPG, APG, RPG.
maybe bulls played lot more OT, 2OT, 3OT games in 1991 so Pippen stats maybe inflated in 1991.
anyways, thats not the argument. 1992 Pippen >> 1991 Pippen who was just a GOOD player like NYK's OAKLEY or CHI's GRANT which could've been replaced & MJ still beat LAL in 6 games in 1991 finals.
Point is. MJ wins 1991 ring without Pippen easily.
