Default SHOWTIME Lakers vs 90s Bulls

sick of hearing this propaganda that LA was still "showtime" in 91. magic wasnt even in his prime. no kareem. no cooper. worthy and scott were injured. LOL

so....

Showtime: 80,82,85,87-88
magic/kareem/worthy/cooper/Scott/mcadoo/wilkes

Bulls: 91-93, 96-98
91-93 bulls - jordan/pippen/grant/cartwright/paxon/armstrong
96-98 bulls - jordan/pippen/rodman/kukoc/harper/kerr

best bulls team vs the best lakers team: who wins?

Really close but imo the 87 Lakers would beat the best Bulls championship squad (either 96 or 92).
And if you had all of those championship teams, that you've mentioned, facing each other (Lakers vs Bulls), LA would win most matchups.

The 'best team' from Chicago is either circa '92 or '96.

The 'best team' from LAL is either circa '85 or '87.

Any way you slice it, I'm goin' Lakers in 7. They were the very definition of stacked.

Pretty much this.

The Bulls smashed the Lakers in 91. And no the Lakers weren't old. Granted that wasn't their best team, but neither was 91 the best Bulls team. And the Bulls won 4-1. There would be a much better argument had the Bulls beat the Lakers in seven.

'96 Bulls = GOAT. No one is beating them that season. Not any version of the showtime Lakers or any version of the Larry Bird Celtics.

Put a 37 year old Kareem on that team & they destroy Chicago.

Lakers would have beat the Bulls in 91 if Worthy and Scott were healthy

"In the early 80s, we knew we could outrun and outscore you," the Lakers' Magic Johnson said. "That's not the way we look at the game anymore."

The Lakers replaced Jabaar with Vlade Divac and Sam Perkins. That tandem more than made up for what they missed in Jabaar. By 87, Kareem was at best a good center.

The Bulls would win because

1. Dennis Rodman alone would outrebound the Lakers frontline. As Pat Riley used to say, "If you can't rebound, you can't run."


2. Their not being able to run forces them to have to post up Jabaar on Longley or Worthy Jordan. We saw what Pippen could do to Magic in 91. Even Magic said Pippen frustrated him. They'd be one and done.

3. The Bulls offense is better than the Lakers defense.

No its not. In fact, aside from Jordan, the second three-peat Bulls were much deeper than the first.
