    You guys complain about Lebron's 07' Finals because he faced all the defensive attention - well Jordan won 6 titles that way (max defensive attention)

    Who cares that Lebron shared the role player categories with teammates that got nearly the same number of rpg or spg

    Watched game 5 against the Knicks in 93 pretty recently. Really really entertaining game.

    The OP doesn't appear to have an agenda. Yeah he is critical of MJ at times but so what? He criticizes other Bulls too, like Pippen and Grant for example. If you are going to watch every single playoff game you are going to see duds from any player. MJ may be GOAT but he didn't walk on water. No need to crucify the guy for providing commentary based on his observations.



    That is what always gets ignored. The early 80's had the Lakers, Celtics, Sixers as great teams. When the Sixers faded the Pistons emerged to take their place. When the Celtics faded the Bulls emerged. In the 90's when the Pistons faded no team emerged to replace them nor did a team emerge to replace the Lakers (who, unlike the Bulls without MJ, sucked without Magic). So the Bulls stood alone the entire run. No other all-time great team had that luxury. Even the 60's Celtics faced the 67' Sixers, who are universally considered an all-time great team.
    I happened to be going through this great thread and once again found this clown misleading others. The Lakers won 58 games in 1991. Magic left the team and the team won just 43 games.

    What Roundball doesn't mention is that Perkins, Worthy, and Divac were all injured in the 1991-92 season. Take a look at the spread of missed games:

    Magic: 82 games
    Worthy: 28 games
    Perkins: 19 games
    Divac: 46 games (only started 18 games for the entire season)

    What kind of team chemistry could be achieved without the greatest PG of all-time and your second and third best players missing significant time? It's a miracle that the Lakers somehow still managed to make the playoffs.

    What has changed is the 94' games are gone. The whole Knicks-Bulls series was on YT years ago but the last time I checked it's only Game 7 and Game 5 via being "Hardwood Classics" and Game 1 against the Cavs.
    I looked around and found this.
    Itís super long though but supposedly itís knicks whole Ď94 run

    Everyone in history needed equal-scoring partners to attract equal defensive attention for numerous playoff runs and Finals, so they didn't always face maximum defensive attention - any period without facing maximum defensive attention is inflated stats compared to Jordan, who always faced maximum defensive attention by carrying the scoring load in every SERIES, let alone playoff run

    Pippen's true shooting was below league-average for every year of his playoff career except 89-91', so he couldn't handle more shot volume - he was already taking more shots than were optimal given his westbrook-efficiency and Larry Hughes-peak scoring capability.. See the previous post for details on Pippen's worst-ever efficiency.
