    Agree. But beyond that, we don’t really need to speculate “if” Jordan’s Bulls could have won 8 in a row, because they didn't. Jordan’s Bulls lost to the Magic in the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals. No need for speculation.

    The first game of 1995 nba finals, Kenny Smith sets a record for most three pointers in a finals game.

    The second game of 1995 finals, Cassell had to have set some record for most points by a bench player, 31 points.

    No finals mvp in last 20 years (Duncan,LeBron, iguodola) has matched olujuwon average 32 points, 12 rebounds in a finals series, 1995 finals.

    Asterisk is a funny word in itself.

    If there is a post season tourney this year which nobody thinks there will be, that is close to an asterisk, a championship worth no real interest other than providing comfort for the Covid stricken world.

    Because Jordon was not in good shape. ....
    It’s hard to tell who would win.

    What Jordan says is to respects Olajuwon.

    This is actually the correct answer

    The NBA did a better job of brainwashing people to forget Jordan was there in 95 dropping 55 points on the Knicks but lost to the Magic who had a superior front line .

    Amazing this was erased from history
    Ancient aliens got nothing on that

    also didn’t Jordan lose to Celtics and pistons for years ?

    I seriously wonder how these 2 idiots smoothie king and BigDumb are in real life

    smoothie king definitely has some sort of mental impairment...perhaps dropped as a baby

    BigDumb seems like a moron who’s blissfully unaware of how stupid he or she is

    What I wouldn’t give to see James Harden lifting up that trophy, with confetti raining down from the rooftops and the fans roaring. Despite not being from Houston, even I know that it’s a city of champions. I’d be overjoyed to see another trophy in the Rockets’ collection (and this time put up in the Toyota center instead of a box somewhere in Florida/New York).

    Houston Rockets fans who were in that era are the most hardcore
    Obvious example is the one who started this site .
    We welcome fans like you who have the passion for the team and no passion for media bias

    we all know Jordan made money for the league
    But they have rewritten history to where people think he never lost in the playoffs and worse
    He wasn’t there in 1995
    Oh yes he was , he lost to Shaq

    We don’t have any asterisks. Warriors won all their titles. EVERY SINGLE ONE Bc of an Injury. Injuries/Retirements are a part of the game. Jordan’s 94 season is more for his “mental health” I’m very sure he wanted time off from spot light and wanted to clear his head despite the fact that he wanted to “play baseball for his dad”. 94 u can think of it as him needing space for his sanity. 95 he returned and straight up didn’t have a good team around him. But when he left the bulls were still very good. And it gives the gm room to add better role players and develop some solid bench guys while he was gone for 1.5 years. It’s similar to what you are going to see with golden state. Essentially curry and klay are taking 1.5 years off due to this corona thing. When they come back they’ll have another 3-4 year run. Obviously none of them are good as jordan but the situation is similar to the 2 diff dynasties in 2 parts of a decade thing.
    It’s not that Jordan was 6/6 he was very lucky to have had a system built around him in the triangle and have the teammates and the smart gm to get the guys he needs. He could have easily been 4/6 if Utah had went out and gotten a Reggie Miller

    I will acknowledge free agent Shaq.

    That's right, Staples center Shaq did get 16 rebounds and 13 rebounds for an average better than hakeem after Hakeem olujuwon swept him.
