Detlef and Hersey were good third and fourth options on that Supersonics team. They did win 64 games the year they made the finals. They were a good defensive team, especially on the perimeter. Payton isn't the only reason Jordan was held under 28 with a low FG%, as I recall.
Consider that they swept the two time defending Rockets in the second round.
