I just don't see why it's difficult to believe that the '91 (or '92 or '93) Bulls would have beaten Detroit regardless of Detroit's "age." They took them to 6 and 7 games the previous two seasons, and it was all Detroit could do to contain Jordan alone. When Pippen and Grant developed (and, more importantly, stopped playing horribly and choking against Detroit in particular), Detroit had no answers.

Why is it so hard to believe that a team who had pushed Detroit to 7 games just a season prior with their second and third best players playing like a$$ would be able to beat said team once everyone was playing well? Detroit didn't "age" that much in one season to go from "the best team in the world" to "over the hill."

that may be true oh great Loki but their defense went from 17th to 6th in that year. good point though.

In '88, Chicago was 2nd in defense. The Bulls' problem was never stopping Detroit, it was scoring against them, especially when things got tight. In the '90 ECF, they Detroit averaged 96 ppg. In the '91 ECF they averaged 95.5 ppg (we don't know FG%, obviously). So defense wasn't the biggest issue.

I miss you guys. Give me a couple to several weeks to be back. That's all I have to say for now.
