  • Rodman being remembered for being with the Bulls dynasty even though he was their rival in their early years is like Curry teamming with Lebron later on and being remembered as Lebron's buddy rather than his rival in Golden State hahaha

  • Scottie Pippen said it best! Once the Bulls got by the Pistons, they pretty much got themselves a championship. Reason being is that they knew how to play every style of basketball when they got past the Pistons. The physical game, the mental game, the fundamental game, the athletic game, and a defense game. That's why teams like the Knicks, Cavs, Pacers, Heat, Jazz, Sonics, Suns, Blazers, and Lakers couldn't get past the Bulls because those teams fell in one of those categories of style of basketball.

  • Rivalries were very personal back then. It was city vs. city. The emotional aspect of sports was different in that you didn’t have the outlets we currently have today, sports was more important emotionally for a city and region. The country and culture was simpler, not necessarily better though. What they did, I respected because it was that real, that personal, that emotional, regardless of sportsmanship.

  • My favorite 80's team was Pistons. I love how their trader has good eyes for talents. He chose players as one who has a category of a true soldier. Tough and rough and should be good with mental and physical warfare. He even get even the smallest of the players and don't judge according to height. He has 3 of the smallest point guards in the NBA. Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars and Vinny Johnson but then they are the small but terrible point guards of that time. They have Mahorn and laimbeer to be the brute force. Isiah Thomas as the general. They even got their legendary rookies which is not that super talented like the Jordan draft but they become diamond as time passes by. Their brotherhood was really amazing and they really worked as a team back then. They were the one team who really worked hard for becoming consistent as top 5 in the playoffs. Also Chuck Daley being a good father figure to them make them also play harder on the 88-89 season since management wants to get rid of him on that time. And that they will not be extending Daley's contract plus the expansion drafy came and you need to let go of some players really hit their team well and is the start of their collapse.

  • Rodman gets too down on himself. I truly believe that without Rodman the Bulls second three-peat would not have happened. I guarantee you if they kept the stat "defensive Rebounds that resulted in points on the ensuing possession" Rodman contributed more then anyone during the Bulls second three-peat. Even the offensive rebounds he grabbed resulted in a bucket.
