    I hate that, Jordan's team got WHOPPED by Orlando in the conference finals, he was back the 2nd championship year, played at least 1/3rd of that season, I hate how people think he came back and won 3 in a row again, he didn't he lost his first season back, and the Rockets won!

    Chicago also lost in the conference semifinals. Reggie Miller and Indiana took Shaq's team 7 games in the Conference Finals.

    And btw, Jordan scored 31 ppg in the loss. So he was playing great. They just had no defense to handle Shaq or Hakeem.
