It took Michael Jordan 7 years to win his first championship, but once he did, he got greedy. There was no question whether the Bulls were up to the task of defending their title, as they steamrolled through the regular season, posing a serious threat to the all time win record. They’d fall short with ‘only’ 67 wins.
Scottie Pippen emerged as a bonafide star, securing spots on the All Star, All NBA and All Defensive teams. Horace Grant remained a reliable third option. The bench? They just led the biggest fourth quarter comeback in Finals history, erasing a 15 point Blazer lead before Michael sealed the victory. Turns out he liked sharing after all.
