      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

90's Chicago Bulls Dynasty

Recommended Posts

Scott M

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.

lots of luck

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.

      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
    • cookie129
      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early

      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.
    • PRO-V
      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.
    • fish_hunt_guy
      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.
