Default Did 1995-1998 three-peat overshadow 1990-1993 three-peat completely?

dat 72-10 record!

followed by

69-13 record!

no one talks about 1990-1993 Bulls three-peat which was 5x better than 1995-1998 3peat.

Everyone in Media wants to compare the Shaq led LAL 3-peat to 1998 Bulls which is considered Beatles version of NBA.

Jordan was 27-30
Pippen was 25-28
Grant was 25-28

vs

Jordan was 32-35
Pippen was 30-33
Rodman was 34-37

1990-1993 Bulls >> 1995-1998 Bulls IMO.

no one talks about Paxon & Armstrong.
Everyone talks about Kerr & Kukoc

no one mentions Horance
Everyone remembers Rodman

No one talks about MJ's reaching dizzying height in 1991, 1992, 1993 finals.
Everyone talks about "Flu game", "The Last shot" game

spare a thought for 1990-1993 forgotten Bulls.

Imagine if Kobe led LAL 3-peated btw 2007-2010.

who would've remembered Shaq's DOMINANTING 1999-2002 3-peat?

Shaq escaped.

I got more...

No one remembers Paxon 3-pointer that won the championship.
Everyone remembers Kerr 2-pointer that won the ring.

No one remembers 1992 CHI-NYK went 7 games.
Everyone remembers 1998 CHI-IND went 7 games.

No one remembers 1991 finals game 3 MJs buzzer beater taking game into OT.
Everyone remembers 1997 game 1 MJ buzzer beater game winner.

Why do you use capitals and bold font mid sentence? And everyone remembers "Oh what a spectacular move by Michael Jordan" and the shrug

Contemporaries at the time said the first three-peat Bulls were better, including Jordan himself. Which is one reason I chronicle basketball, to record what was actually being said at the time it was happening, as opposed to what people say years after the fact. It often proves interesting looking at the difference.

It also allows one to differentiate the people who were paying attention at the time from those who found out about it later.

I've developed this weird habit. I know its annoying. I'll try get rid of it.

"Oh what a spectacular move by Michael Jordan".

agreed there!. But thats about it btw. If it wasnt for dat move. I think 1990-1993 bulls are completely forgotten.

I never enjoyed watching twilight MJ, injury ridden pippen & senior citizen rodman ever!

I thought they were boring & old.

I think people remember the 96-98 Bulls more than the 91-93 squads because Jordan returned, the trio of Jordan, Pippen and Rodman was amazing defensively and the two Jazz squads were better than the teams the younger Bulls beat.

IMO the 92 Bulls were the best incarnation, then the 96 Bulls. 92 had prime Jordan and Pippen as well as Horace Grant. Great on both sides of the ball

the earlier nineties bulls had to work harder for it. there were tougher teams in the early nineties, plus mj and pippen were still young and coming together as a duo.

the 96-98 bulls were pretty stacked imo.

I agree, and a big part of that is because Jordan was at or near his peak during the first 3-peat. He was technically still in his prime in the second 3-peat but it was the "back 9" of his prime.

But first 3-peat Jordan was unreal. I think a lot of the Kobe and LeBron fanboys on here either didn't see first 3-peat Jordan or ignore him, and use second 3-peat Jordan to draw their comparisons.

agreed!

It was VulneraBULLS vs InvinciBULLS

1991 CHI had easy run vs 1996 CHI had easy run.

1992 CHI struggled vs 1997 CHI Coasted again!

1993 CHI struggled vs 1998 CHI had a bump in the road.

1992 & 1993 bulls had series tied 2-2 like 4 times !!! (1992 NYC, 1992 CLE, 1992 POR, 1993 NYK)

1996 1997, 1998 bulls had series tied 2-2 ONCE!

The second threepeat was better. 72 wins which is good for best ever. 69 wins which is the second best record ever. Then win 62 games with Pippen missing half the season. The 94 team was basically the 96-98 team except instead of Rodman you had Grant. And that team won 55 games.

That squad is the only one that I can think of that were legit championship contenders while not having one of their two best players. The other all-time great teams floundered when their best player missed a significant amount of time.

This logic never made sense. Theres no real or fair way to quantify which competition was better. The teams the Bulls played during the second threepeat had great records. The 97 Bulls beat the 44 win Bullets, the 56 win Hawks, the 61 win Heat, then the 64 win Jazz. Why cant the Bulls coast through the playoffs due to just being dominant?

You cannot be serious!

1990 - 1993 MJ is too much fun to watch. improvisation after improvisation. he made much of it up as he dribbled.

1995-1998 MJ is just TOO BORING. those same fadeaways, post ups, fadeaways, fallaways. pull up jumpers. protecting his body from injury. Bulked up upper body. Joints were stiffened. Lack of youthful athleticism. He was like zen master making a statement, athleticism is overrated.

1995-1998 Pippen was even worse. injury ridden. Flat footed most of the time. lost his athleticism after age 31.

1995-1998 Rodman was the only LIVELY ATHLETIC thing amongs the three. irony was rodman was the oldest of the trio.


Watching MJ-Pip run those fast breaks in 1990-1993 with Horace trailing is the single most ORGASMIC thing of NBA.

Watching Both of them on DEFENSE btw 1990-1993 was another pleasure. They shut down the whole half of the B-ball court.

The fact that they were that dominant while key players were injured should be a testament to their greatness, not a detriment. If they can win 72, 69, and 62 games and cap the seasons with championships what does it matter? How many games do they win if fully healthy?

Youre more explaining a preference. I can appreciate both versions of Jordan. The 1st threepeat was more athletic, while the second was wiser. Both equally effective.
