Jordan 94: -2 games won
3 Bulls on the 94 team had career years and all made the allstar team(Pippen,Armstrong,Horace) without Jordan.
The teams defensive rating was 106 with Jordan in 93 and improved to 102.7 in 94 without him. Pete Myers improved the team defensively when given Jordans minutes.
Why do you keep using this stupid arguement?
Bulls without Jordan: 40 win percentage (49% if you include '94 season, which is stupid) 0 championships.
Bulls with Jordan: 65 win percentage, 6 championships.
Please explain this.
