90's Chicago Bulls Dynasty

12 posts in this topic

After watching the Pats lose last night (a conclusion which I was rooting for), I found myself thinking about the 90's Chicago Bulls dynasty. I was a huge Bulls fan. Throughout grade school I had Chicago Bulls everything. About half a dozen caps, a starter jacket, a Jordan, Pippen, and Rodman jersey, Michael Jordan "Wings" poster, t-shirts for every year they won it all, zubaz, wind pants and jacket, you name it, and I probably had it in Chicago Bulls. I loved those teams, I love Jordan.

Now I'm older and I can't stand dynasties like these...If you count the Lakers in the early part of this decade and the Patriots in football. I don't like those teams because they win every year and they're cocky. But in his prime, Jordan was cocky too. He once said "There is no 'I' in team, but there is an 'I' in win." For me, rooting for Jordan was like rooting for America. I considered the Bulls America's team...they certainly were more than the Dallas (Felons?) Cowboys. I just appreciated how they did things with the Triangle offense, bit players stepping up, etc.

So I guess I am wondering, do you look back fondly on the 90's Bulls dynasty? Did you cheer for the Bulls?

They were pretty easy to cheer for when the Wolves were going 22-60 for the first 5 years of the decade. Bulls vs Knicks was a great playoff series to watch. That move when Jordan spun baseline and dunked on Patrick Ewing. Still gives me chills.

I never thought those Bulls teams were all that great. They had Jordan and Pippen, then what? Rodman? Wennington? Paxton? Just a bunch of role players around two superstars. If they had played in a slightly different era they may never have won a championship. The Bulls of the 90s couldn't hold a candle to the Celtics or Lakers of the 80s.

??? Jordan and Pippen and a bunch of role players is exactly what they needed....They would have hung right in with the Celts and Lakers of the 80's not saying who's better but the Bulls definatly would not be blown away by those teams!! Jordan was just to dominant!!! Who would guard him?

Nobody could stop Jordan. He had his fade away, he would drive to the hoop with that tongue hanging out. Just Jordan being Jordan.

You're right, no one could guard Jordan. In fact, he scored sixty-some points against the Celts in the '86 playoffs, I believe. The Bulls lost the game in OT and got swept for the series. Jordan started his career in what, '84? The Bulls didn't become a force until the early nineties when all the really good competition was gone.

The comp was gone??? maybe the celts but at that time Jordan didn't even have another person on his team to help......once he got help his teams were tough to match!!! he did win a championship over the Lakers I thought.........

The dynastic competition was gone. If you look at the teams the Bulls beat in the finals, they weren't in the same ballpark as the Celtics and Lakers of the 80s. Look at it this way: the only time the Malone/Stockton Jazz teams could make it to the finals was way late in their careers--when the Bulls beat them. They could never get past the Lakers in the 80s.

Juggs ever heard of 72-10? I think they could play with anyone, anywhere, anytime. My dad and I religiously watched the Bulls of the 90's, I was born and raised in northern IN. It was a lot of fun the first few rings, but by the 72-10 season came around it was almost boring at times because the outcome was almost predictable. Aren't most teams led by a star with role players playing their roles around the star? You can't compare Jordan of the 80's with Jordan of the 90's. Two different players due to age and experience. I will say though my favorite player was always Scottie Pippen through the run. Just an all around player that helped in elevating Jordan to the next level.

After saying all this though, the game is almost agonizing to watch now.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
