Re: Did 1995-1998 three-peat overshadow 1990-1993 three-peat completely?
Jordan's first 3-peat is above what any player has ever done in the NBA. But I think Shaq, Wilt, Bird, Kobe and even Lebron have all be in the second 3-peat stratosphere one time or another (especially in the playoffs).
Kobe 2008-9 (first 3 rounds of 08 anyway)
Also, Jordan had more help and played in a weaker league the second time around.
