With the help of the point system (a.k.a. ‘sotirisf model’©) it’s easier to demonstrate the complete domination of the Chicago Bulls during the 90s (imagine if MJ had not quit for almost 2 seasons).

    The 1995 Rockets team was in my opinion an equal of the Bulls teams of the 90s and very well could have beaten them in a best of 7.

    • Rumbero

      That’s why the Bulls have 6 rings and the Rockets have 2. ah! and by the way the 2 they won was when Jordan was playing baseball. Now do the math.

      • John, Your basing your opinion on mere speculation. Your forgetting; that same Shaq’s Magic team with one more year of experience was embarrassed 4 straight by chicago the year after and that same Rockets team didn’t even win the west. I’d agree with you in that it would have been a grate series but they didn’t have enough fire power to beat the Bulls, specially the 72-10 Bulls.

    Agree with Rumbero, the other teams in the NBA couldn’t win anything until MJ left, the Bulls would probably have won 8 straight if Jordan didn’t leave, he was THAT DOMINANT, PERIOD!

    • John

      I disagree Larry. I think the 95 Rockets with Olajawan, Drexler, and Horry etc could have defeated those Bulls teams in a best of 7. They demolished Shaq’s Magic in 4 straight that year but we will never know. It would have been a great series however if Jordan had been playing that year.

    I agree with John, the rockets 94 would beat the bulls with MJ on a roster in 94; and also in 95, the rockets with clyde would von the 95 bulls with MJ.

  5. timo1986

    I loved the lakers 1995…

  6. I think that if Jordan hadn’t been out of the game for almost two years there is no way that another team other than Bulls would have won the titles in 1994 and 1995. His absence made possible for other teams to rise to success.
