Rodman wasn't a better rebounder than Malone and unlike Rodman Malone gave 30 points a game and didn't shoot 30% from the line. The Sixers certainly faced better defenders than Rodman since they played the Celtics who had DJ several times a year.....not to mention having to deal with Cooper in the finals. Face it: The Bulls were Jordan, Pippen, and a bunch of one-dimensional role players.

We are talking about some of the greatest defenders that have ever played the game, on the wing.
Jordan won a DPOY. In a era of this guy.
Pippen, well, he is over shadowed by 23, but as a defender, not too many can match him.
Jackson called it "Release the Doberman's", for a reason.
