    People say all the time that Jordan was gone for 2 years. They seem to forget that the was back in 95. When you tell them that he did play in 95 their excuse is "he was playing baseball", He wasn't the same Jordan...blah blah blah.

    If he was in baseball shape or wasn't playing like himself how do you explain his 95 regular season stat line of:

    26.9 PPG 6.9 RPG 5.3 APG

    Then in the playoffs he was averaging -

    31.5 PPG 6.5 RPG and 4.5 APG

    If being in baseball shape or not being fully into it yields these kind of results I would like all the Rockets players to go play some baseball for a year and a half.

    The bottom line is that they played in the East we played in the west. IF we could have beat the Sonics those years we might be in the Championships and maybe then they wouldn't have had so many. We matched up well against the Bulls, in my opinion better than any other team, so using Phil's basis who knows what would have happened.

    What if is crap to me...we can what if all day long and come up with every idea under the sun for every season.

    He can't change anything. Our championships are just as valid as all the rest of them.

    This. I mean PJ is PJ. I'm sure he doesn't really mean what he said, he just wanted to get a cheap shot as revenge. We did beat them after all :p

    haha sticks and stones. This is classic phil, never admitting that somebody else's team was good, just that his own team was bad (or missing mj). Phil fails to realize that others can be successful without having to depend on the deficiancies of his team.

    phil jackson is an idiot. anybody acting like houston's run is tainted isn't aware of the context and circumstances of the run we had.

    '94, i think you can make a good argument of us being outmatched in talent in every single round. you're telling me the blazers with drexler, strickland, porter, cliff robinson, harvey grant, buck williams and jerome kersey aren't more talented than us? how about the suns with barkley, kj, ac green and majerle or the jazz with malone, stockton and hornacek? ironically, the knicks were probably the only team we evenly matched up with but they were more experienced.

    we overcame adverse situations like being down 0-2 going to phoenix, having been labelled choke city and came up big with maxwell having that 31 point second half. game 7, hakeem carried us through with some timely contributions from cassell. we took the jazz out in 5 games even with that utah timekeeper giving the jazz a 1000 extra seconds to score in game 4 and closed them out at home. we played the knicks tough and didn't back down against their physicality and thug-like play. again, some timely shots like cassell's gamewinner in game 3 and maxwell's go-ahead bucket in game 7. HAKEEM WAS THE DREAM.

    '95, this is the hardest run to a championship ever. lost our starting PF which left a major hole in our rebounding, lost carl herrera and maxwell for the playoffs and hakeem/drexler didn't get enough time to gel since dream went down a few games after the trade. we won every single series without home court, swept the finals, came back from 3-1 down against phoenix, won the i-10 texas showdown with HAKEEM DISMANTLING THAT PANSY and came back to win at the delta center after a 9 point deficit in the 4th quarter.

    yet, those two titles are tainted? our competition was a hell of a lot better than some of the teams phil and his bulls/lakers faced on their way to the finals.

    i'm not even going to mention the rockets winning record against the bulls coached by phil which is '90-98. lets exclude the years where jordan didn't play and we end up with a record of 7-7. that, however, doesn't tell the whole story since we had a bunch of injuries in the four match ups we lost in '96 and '98. from '90-93, we went 6-2 against the bulls "dynasty."

    Even putting aside whether we would or would not have beaten them (we would have), it's stupid as hell to say a championship means less because one player wasn't in the league. All right, fine. Let's apply that logic to NBA history. That leaves how many valid title wins when a prime Jordan was in the league? 8? 9? Screw Russell and Cousy. They didn't play Jordan. Pansies. Screw Kobe and Shaq and that one guy who coached them...what was his name? Their titles were lame.

    In short, Houston played a great two years. Give them some f**king credit.

    Big Chief Triangle is just cranky from all the losing his team's been doing lately.

    For a guy who's into Buddhism and the oneness of it all, he sure knows how to talk *****.

    The Rockets had role players on their championship teams that were much better than any of those Bulls teams opponents.

    Well Phil had to say something to distract his team getting dismantled by Sugar Shane Battier.

    Just proves Phil is still the douche we know him to be. Stay classy Phil. :rolleyes:

    I like that he's bringing attention back to our 2 rings. How sweet it is! As any Lakers fan would say "I can't hear you, my rings are in the way."

    The Zen is burning up inside. There's no serenity in his mind right now with the losing streak
