Yes, because a typo is the same as not being able to count to three.

winning 4 titles in the row isnt going to be easy.

not saying the Spurs would just run laps around the Bulls but i think MJ and Pippen might have some tired legs. Not to mention that MJ would be 36

'98 Bulls in 5-6. '98 Utah, imho, was better or equal to the '99 Spurs.

Rarely ... he came through more often than not ...

He hit a buzzer beater tying shot in that same series

Hit a game winning buzzer beater in the '93 Finals

Hit a game winning buzzer beater in '97 Finals

Assisted on a game winner in the '97 Finals

Hit a game winning 3 in the '97 Finals (Flu Game)

Hit a game winning shot in the '98 Finals

More often than not ... MJ comes through when you need him to most. That's why he's the best ever.

Honestly think it was marginal at best. Even if they give the Bulls a better series, I don't think they're winning against the '98 Bulls. Which is my opinion on the series.

Two "ifs" in sports is too many and too hypothetical for me.

Duncan and Robinson were still both double-double caliber bigs in 1999. The Bulls had a woeful front line. They had a mediocre center and undersized power forwards.

It would be possible that Duncan could be the best player in the series.

Never mattered much when facing the Ewing Knicks, Shaq Magic of the world ...

Yeah you have the front line advantage.

We have the clear cut wing and guard advantages.

How are you getting the ball to Duncan or D-Rob when Jordan, Brown, and Pippen are smothering your inferior guards?

That's why we always managed to beat teams with superior front courts. Can't get them the ball when they're being hounded by two of the best guard / wing defenders (both on ball, and help defense) of all-time.

lol at people talking like the 2003 Spurs was the worst one. They just kicked the legendary 3-peat Lakers. Pretty sure that Lakers was better than any of those suns or mavs or even pistons they faced in 2005 or 2007. It was TD on his best shape plus many young talents.

2003 Lakers was a roster left to rot outside of Kobe and Shaq.

Kobe was their best player, Shaq took way too much time to heal an injury ... was a major out of shape fat ass that season, and the Lakers figured they could get cheap and keep winning with just those two guys.

They were a shell of what they were from 2000 - 2002
