That year they went 67-15 and could have won 72 if they had any reason to. And that was BEFORE the league was watered down by expansion, which benefitted the Dennis Rodman Bulls teams.
The playoffs in 1991-92 were a joke, nobody could touch the Bulls. In the finals they decisively beat a Portland team that could have won the title in 90% of other years. That season was Pippen's best, and Horace Grant's best, and one of Jordan's best. Their role players were good and the team was virtually mistake-free. What made that year's team so special was the rare combination of overpowering offensive explosiveness, lack of turnovers, dominant rebounding, and lockdown defense.
It's interesting to compare that 67 win Bulls team with this year's 67 win Mavs team. It's night and day. The Mavs had to fight for most of their wins. The Bulls could have won about 55 games that year without practicing.

if you mention the 80's lakers, you HAVE to mention the 80's celtics

I can't agree with that. Obviously that was the great rivalry and they were both great, great teams. Either one of them coulda won 8 titles in the 80s were it not for the other. But I personally think the Lakers were just a little better. Not a big difference but I don't think they were completely even over the decade.

the point im trying to make.. is..

1. dennis johnson
2. ainge
3. mchale
4. bird
5. parrish
6. walton

is more talent than any laker team in the 80's.. they were the best team put together in my opinion, as far as hall of famers, history, whatever the hell you want...

the lakers won alot of titles, but the lakers rosters werent as polished.. even if they were better some of the years, i promise you they werent as stacked as the 86 celtics
