You do know that Rodman's nemisis Kemp had 23+/10+ as PF & compare that to Bulls PF 7.5/14.5.
that aint enough to win FMVP over MJ who had 27+/4+/5+
no matter how you slice it.
MJ's assists stats went down cuz he played OFF THE BALL big time in this series more than 1997 finals & particularly 1998 finals.
Pippen was the PRIMARY BALL HANDLER
& still tanked the whole series.
Rodman was GREAT but he was not FMVP worthy at all.
Rodman must average DOUBLE DOUBLE at 15rpg to be considered FMVP.
Rodman needed to average 20+rpg/7.5ppg to get FMVP over MJ.
he did not do it.
