So let's stop disregarding hakeem's championships gentlemen.

The best part was: We could never have won seven in a row and it was not because of you Kenny.

That was brilliant. Kerr is so underrated, because he is not a loudmouth, but he actually prepares for work unlike most other ex-players. Therefore he always comes accross prepared, knowledgable and occasionally throws out a gem like that.

I think the would've won the 4th in a row in 94 had Michael not fooled around with baseball. But they certainly wouldn't have won in 95. Not if the same circumstances played out with Horace Grant's free agency.

Steve Kerr should have NO OPINION about this whatsoever. He joined the team in 94...so what did he know about the original three-peat besides being pounded by them? He actually played a lot of mins...a career high of 25mpg in 94 sharing mins with BJ armstrong and Pete Myers. I just don't really see why people cant' see them winning four in a row.

Mj had left and we all know that and they still won 55 games with Pippen missing 10 games and them going 4-6 during that span. Grant who was the 2nd best player also missed 12 games yet they still won 55 games. They replaced the best player in the world with a world class scrub in Pete Myers. If they had replaced Jordan with someone like Hershey Hawkins they might have beat the Knicks. Frankly they matched up better against the Pacers who they would have played in the ECF and then it would have been the Knicks who the Rockets needed 7 games to beat just like the Knicks needed 7 games (and a terrible call) to beat the bulls in 94.

Even if the Bulls coasted through the 93 season...every team amps it up in the playoffs and Pippen in his absolute prime, Grant in his prime, and Jordan? It's pretty hard to bet against that team.

The whole point though is why does Steve Kerr even have an opinion about the first three-peat? He did not join the team till 94. Jordan announced his retirement almost right before the season too, so Pippen had been working on his game and was in his absolute prime. (and it showed as he finished 3rd in MVP after Hakeem and Robinson) Pippen was universally considered the best perimeter player in the league in that 94 season. I just don't see why Kerr even has an opinion about a team he didn't join till Jordan left. How can he talk about the motivations or fatigue of players that he didn't even know? When he did join in 94 that was probably the scrappiest the Bulls had ever been. Obviously a lot of them had something to prove because Jordan was gone and they expected failure, but in general the triangle offense was never run so well as it was in 1994. Complete team offense. That was the whole goal of the plan and they played it to perfection. Pippen could have averaged 25ppg or so easily in 1994, but he was the ultimate team player and that is what made the team excel.

Is it me, or is the thread title total wrong (Lies). I watched the clip and I never heard Kerr say they "couldn't win more than 3 in a row".

He said they "wouldn't win 7 in a row". And I actually agree with him.

Steve Kerr, the guy who actually played on the Bulls, should not have an opinion, but you, a guy who hasn't played a second of professional basketball can?

Are you an idiot? Kerr was not part of the first three-peat. Why should he have an opinion on whether or not they could have gotten four in a row. He played with Scottie Pippen in his aboslute prime and the best perimeter player in the league, Horace Grant an 14/11 all star all 2nd team defensive player, BJ who you found his role as a scoring pg etc. Steve kerr wasnt' part of the original three-peat so he SHOULD HAVE NO OPINION. The fact that they were so good while replacing michael jordan with pete myers should make Steve KNOW they should have won it all in 94.

Are YOU an idiot? He wasn't part of the three-peat, but he was on the '94 squad (which was going for the four-peat). ] Kerr played with Pippen and Grant. He gave his reasons as to why they wouldn't have won 7 in a row, even if Jordan played. Are you trying to say that you know what their mindset was, better than Kerr?
I love how people try to act like they know what the players' mindset and physical levels are, better than the players themselves.

Hakeem would've destroyed the Bulls' frontline, BTW.

kerr said 7 in a row is impossible, he did not say more than 3. i think the bulls had a great chance to 4 peat. but anything more than 4, i will agree with kerr.
