  1. Warriors Legacy?

    Lol i'm the only poster huh? There are in-depth analysis on this everywhere. His numbers were as good as always and better then in 96-98 31.5 ppg 484 FG% 6.5 rpg 4.1 Apg 2.3 Spg 1.4 Bpg You realize he's messed up plenty of times when he was 100% too right? I bet if Pippen doesn't close out the Knicks series in '93, the only thing we hear about from that year is how bad MJ messed up. Well that or his fans playing it off like his wrist wasn't 100% (despite declaring right before the series that it was a non issue). Was he ''rusty'' when he scored 55 against the Knicks or 48 against the Hornets in the 1995 playoffs? MJ put up 31/6.5/4/2.5/2 on 48% in the 1995 Magic series, moved way better than he did in '96 and beyond FACTS. Even MJ has always needed one of the best (if not the best) cast in the league to win, and in '95 he didn't have it even though he had better playoff numbers in 95 than in ANY of his 2nd 3peat years. FACTS. The entire series is on youtube, watch and learn. Jordan is supposed to be the undisputed greatest right? No excuses, him coming back should have made the Bulls an automatic lock to win the championship. (many people believed it would) His presences alone should have put them over the top that year. Let's not forget Jordan supposedly had a legendary ''will to win'' he always willed his team to victory no matter what, remember? He didn't though he came up short, choked in a crucial situation against Nick Anderson and cost his team the game and a chance at the title. Sorry but time off or ''rust'' is such a laughable excuse for a player like Jordan. I mean the guy is supposed to be by far and away the best ever and he couldn't win because of ''rust''? Yeah okay..... If Mike gets 95 disregarded there are a lot of people who should get some of the things used to hate on them taken back. Wilt, West, Magic, and Bird all had years or playoffs of being less than themselves due to things out of their control. The Lakers beat the Celtics in 85 with Larry having a cracked knuckle on his shooting hand. No one says a word about this. It's a bit of a double standard. Mike is pretty much the only player who gets "Nah that doesnt count...." "Jordan not being Jordan" isn't the reason for the Bulls' loss that year. That would be interior defense (or lack thereof) and rebounding. Grant and O'Neal beasted on the Bulls frontcourt and that was the primary reason for the Magic winning. Again he desperately needed Rodman's help in 1996.

    Lol Hakeem & Shaq are on another level to Ewing. MJ beat the Lakers with no Kareem & Magic had aids, name a team he beat with 3 or more hall of famers on the opposing team. He not only lost legitimately to Shaq & Penny in 1995, but choked in 2 games of that series. MJ desperately needed Rodman's help to overcome them in 1996. Facts.

    Harden more valuable than LeBron is pure comedy.
  4. Warriors Legacy?

    "Jordan was rusty" doesn't fly when he goes 32/7/5 on 48% shooting. His performance in 1995 compares favorably to ANY of his postseason performances. The Bulls couldn't beat a team with a dominant center. Even if they had got through to the finals, Hakeem would have eaten them alive. He wasn't rusty at all, he dropped 55 points against the knicks a month prior, not only did he lose against Shaq & Penny in 1995 he choked twice the full games are on Youtube. Enter Rodman. Rodman's offensive rebounding won the following 1996 series, most long time Bulls fans agree. Jordan not only shot terribly from the field, he was absolute s--- in the fourth quarters too (shot 33.3% in them, and only 15.4% in the fourth quarters of the three close games). In the two close wins of the series, Rodman averaged 11 offensive rebounds/game. He was setting records, and when MJ was shooting the team out of the game with bricks (rest of the team struggled shooting wise too), it was Rodman getting all those rebounds to give Bulls the extra possessions. Bulls as a team shot much lower than Sonics in that series...why do you think they still won? They got 34 more possessions from offensive rebounds (Rodman alone had 41!) MJ's scoring could have been replaced in that series, but Rodman's historic offensive rebounding? Not so much. Rodman should have been the MVP of that Finals. The Bulls shot much worse from the field than the Sonics in the Finals but still won. How did that happen? Simple. The Bulls got more shot opportunities from offensive rebounds basically negating many of their misses. Rodman, by himself, secured and additional 41 possessions for the Bulls with his offensive rebounding including 2 games where he tied an NBA Finals record. That's like playing H-O-R-S-E and someone giving you multiple "do overs" after you've missed. DERP.

    Dumb argument, without Rodman they were eliminated in the 1995 eastern conference finals by Shaq & Penny. Without Rodman Hakeem would of eaten them alive.

    How could you not hate the Warriors, that was one of the most satisfying wins ever. Cannot wait for this snake Warriors fake "dynasty" to be destroyed before it even happens by Lebron shrewdly going to Houston or Philly and blocking the Warriors 3-peat.

    Jordan's "perfect" record is bs, he and pippen couldn't beat shaq and penny in 95, rodman should of been finals mvp in 96 for the amount of help he brought to that bulls squad. Without rodman they lose again.

    Here's a joke at 01:48:12 with the entire series on the line Jordan chokes with an air-ball in a must-win game 6 against Orlando in 1995.
  11. NBA Playoffs Talk

    Super team or not. Jordan lost in 1995 without Rodman, they needed his help to win. Big difference is this...
  12. NBA Playoffs Talk

    Jordan, Pippen, and Phil Jackson ran to Rodman for the help they desperately needed after losing the 1995 eastern conference finals. They essentially constructed a super team. Rings are purely about the team hence Jordan's multiple first round exits pre-Pippen. Only somebody like LeBron at 22 years of age can carry a team to the finals. Hypothetically if you're starting an NBA franchise out of every player in history you take LeBron 1st every single time - bigger, faster, stronger with a higher basketball IQ. Facts.
  13. NBA Playoffs Talk

    Name the teams MJ beat with 3 or more Hall of Famers? He beat the Lakers with no Kareem, Magic Johnson had aids. Blazers had Drexler, yeah that's it. Pheonix Had Barkley, and who else? Oh Kevin Johnson. Sonics Kemp, Payton. Jazz Malone, Stockton. Hilarious. Try beating the greatest teams ever assembled in the Spurs, and Warriors. Not to mention OKC Harden, Westbrook, Durant, Ibaka. Go ahead and bring up the Mavs in 2011, they swept Kobe's a** the defending champion.
  14. NBA Playoffs Talk

    I thought he was rusty in 1995? Love it how he gets a pass for being "rusty", but it applies to nobody else in the history of the game. He clearly wasn't rusty at all, in fact his stats were better than in 95 than 96,97 & 98, even dropped 55 points against the knicks in 95.... bottom line is he choked twice (air ball, and a turnover), and lost the 1995 eastern conference finals to Shaq & Penny. MJ desperately needed help, without the addition of Dennis Rodman he would have lost again in 1996. Facts.

    Swap kd into the cavs and LBJ out they don't make the playoffs, LBJ goat.
