Jordan, Rodman, Pippen - Red Assault
GREATEST TRIO IN NBA HISTORY
Over the three seasons from 1995 to 1998, the Chicago Bulls played in 304 games, which included the playoffs in which they won the championship all three times. In this time the Bulls posted an astounding 248-56 record. That’s right, they won 81.5% of the time. That’s incredible for one season – let alone three in a row. Those teams were led by future Hall of Famers, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman. Those years were a fun time to be a Bulls fan.
Dennis Rodman was the wild one of the bunch, changing his hair color on a weekly basis it seemed and tattooed from head to toe – that was wild back in 1995. He certainly caused quite a stir with his skills too as he lead the league in rebounding seven years in a row. Without him crashing the boards and dishing the ball to MJ and Scottie, who knows if the Bulls would have completed the second three-peat.He is arguably the greatest rebounder to ever play the game.
Scottie Pippen, named as one of the 50 greatest players ever by the NBA, received a great compliment from Michael Jordan when MJ was inducted into the Hall of Fame. MJ said “In all the videos, you never just saw me; you saw Scottie Pippen. Every championship I won”. MJ basically led off his long, controversial speech with that too. Scottie’s definitely one of the best small forwards of all time, and was a tremendous defender. There is no way the Bulls win 6 titles without him.
You probably didn’t hear anything new about the two above-mentioned guys, but I didn’t want to take it for granted. But if you don’t know about Michael or MJ or even just “23”, simply put – he was, and will always be, the most important basketball player.
