Default Replace Grant with Rodman in the first 3 peat

Replace Horace Grant with Dennis Rodman during the first Bulls 3 peat.

Do they still win the championship????

Grant
90-91 12.8ppg, 8.4rpg, 2.3apg, 1.2spg, 33.9mpg in 78 games
91-92 14.2ppg, 10.0rpg, 2.7apg, 1.2spg, 1.6bpp, 35.3mpg in 81 games
92-93 13.2ppg, 9.5rpg, 2.6apg, 1.1spg, 1.2bpg, 35.6mpg in 77 games


Rodman
90-91 8.2ppg, 12.5rpg, 1.0apg, 33.5mpg in 77 games
91-92 9.8ppg, 18.7rpg, 2.3apg, 40.3mpg in 82 games
92-93 7.5ppg, 18.3rpg, 1.6apg, 38.9mpg in 62 games


What do you guys think?

and what about Horace Grant playing for the Bulls from 96 thru 98, do they still win those 3 rings?

MJ actually said that if they had Grant instead of Rodman after he came back they wouldn't have been able to win as many championships (It's somewhere in Playing for Keeps by David Halberstam). Probably biased because of MJ and Grant's bitterness towards each other but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

They were more of a pressing D in the 1st 3 peat with Grant as the midcourt backstop, and more of a half court D squad in the Worm era. So I think they have to change up how they defend some, but they would 3 peat with the worm in place of Grant, and at least 2 peat with grant in place of Dennis.

My worry is that Grants mobility might not hold up as long as it would need to for the second 3 peat. He seemed to drop off the fastest.

The other issue is chemistry. Grant was THE whipping boy in the first go round and got on well with Cartwright. Kucoc was the whipping boy the second go round, and they had Jack Haley to baby sit the worm... a small but 100 % critical role. Not sure how that plays out.
