    That Was No 8th Seed It Was Weird They Were One Of The Best Teams But The Regular Season Was Terrible For Them.

    They Ran A Great Fastbreak Sprewell Was A Beast At The Time Houston Was In His Prime Camby Worked Well With There High Speed Offense Kurt Thomas, LJ , Childs, Ewing Untill He Got Hurt Really Wouldnt Hold A Candle To Some Earlier 90's Teams But They Were Still Really Good Resilient And Determined Team.

    Really For Awhile There The East Couldnt Handle The Size Of The Wests Top Teams Shaq And The Lakers Or The Duncan And The Spurs.

    Isn't Drexler a Hall of Famer? Anyway, Hakeem is the best center of all time, without a doubt.

    Drexler didn't get to the team until the second title.

    rodman should be in the HOF!!!!!!!!! lockdown defender, legendary motor, and a rebound king!!!!!!!!!!

    pippen was still a monster when jordan retired after ring 6, but that bulls team came back looking old as fuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    fact is, it takes pieces to win!!!!!!!!!!!!

    that iverson led sixers team that lost to LA in the finals was pretty much a one man show!!!!!!! but even that squad had some specialists!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    kobes probably the best 2 guard to play in the NBA besides jordan, and you cant call him the greatest laker to play with confidence!!!!!! thats a storied franchise!!!!!!!!!

    I know, I was just saying. Those Rockets teams back then were my favorite championship team. One of the all time best.

    Nah that KNicks team was ugly. I'll give you Sprewell he was playing at a high level, but that was not a championship team.

    Those Knicks/Heat games were UGLY...seriously the most entertaining thing was the fights. It was thug ball, and those Heat teams weren't even that great anyway. I mean they wre decent.

    Millers Pacers were decent.

    But that was aterrible era for the East. We were awful, pplayed ugly basketball. Its why the Spurs and the Lakers dominated

    that knicks team was a goon squad though!!!!!

    LJ, chris childs jabbing young kobe, spree feedin his family, led by van gundy sweatin bullets making eyebags on the sideline!!!!!!!!

    patrick ewing couldnt elevate more than 3 inches off the ground during his late championship runs!!!!!!!!!

    and hakeem is definitely the most polished center of all time!!!!! his post game was sick, best interior offense ive ever seen from a big man!!!!! and he could sink his free throws!!!!!!

    watching the hakeem out in toronto was nightmare!!!!!!!!! the dream was dead!!!!!!!!!!

    they wouldn't have won if jordan was there.
    The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

    People are too stupid to effectively conspire to do anything, but not too stupid to come up with conspiracy theories.

    Jordan only missed one post season. He lost in the playoffs in '95.

    Nobody can say for a fact that they wouldn't have won the championship with Jordan there. It's just speculation.

    Barkley and Pippen came to the Rockets a little later on right? I mean Barkley was near retirement and getting injured and Pippen was older, but that could have been a dream team a little earlier.
