Rodman helped quite a bit, but that team would've won 60+ games anyway. Jordan getting back into full basketball shape and his teammates being used to play with him would've helped a lot.

Adding Rodman on top of that just made them unbeatable.

Mj won 6 rings without a former FMVP on his team, Lebron's never won a finals game without a former FMVP on his team?

I guess ignoring context and logic around here is common practice?


1985: Rookie Jordan lost 3-1 to a 59 win Bucks team that had a pretty salty trio of Sidney Moncrief, Terry Cummings, and Paul Pressey. Moncrief was 2nd team All-NBA and 1st team All-Defense; oh, and he had just won back-to-back DPOY's in '83 and '84. Terry Cummings was 2nd team All-NBA. Paul Pressey was a 16-7-5-2 third scoring option and, oh yeah, he was 2nd team All-Defense that year.

Rookie Jordan averaged 29-9-6-3 despite Milwaukee having perhaps a top 5 perimeter defender of all-time and another All-Defense player to throw at him. By minutes played, Jordan's best/most used teammates were Orlando Woolridge, Quintin Dailey, and Dave Greenwood.


1986: This one really shouldn't need explaining. Second year Jordan lost to the f**king '86 Celtics...one of the best teams ever. Yes, they got swept, but that shouldn't surprise anyone given the enormous discrepancy in talent between the Bulls and Celtics. It was Jordan, Woolridge, Dave Corzine, rookie Charles Oakley, and John Paxson against Bird, McHale, Parrish, and Dennis Johnson.

Obviously Jordan had the 63 point game, but he also had a 49 point game (on 50% shooting) in game one. No iteration of LeBron's Cavs probably even wins a game against the '86 Celtics, nevermind a series.


1987: Again, he loses to Bird's Celtics, so I don't really need to explain anything. Jordan lost Woolridge, and had second year Oakley, Dave Corzine, John Paxson, and Gene Banks.


1988: Lost to the Bad Boy Pistons who went on to lose in the Finals. Saw some reference to this being a championship caliber team, and Jordan still lost in the 2nd round. How? Pippen and Grant were rookies and Sam Vincent was the second leading scorer in the Pistons series. Oh, and it was the f**king Bad Boy Pistons.


And of course in '89 and '90 they lost in the ECF to the Pistons, at the height of the powers, in 6 and 7 games; In '89, the Bulls two wins were the only two times the Pistons lost in the entire playoffs; and in '90 Detroit lost no more than one game in every other series besides the ECF where the Bulls took them 7 games.
