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.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
