The early 90's saw a lot of expansion teams which many say watered down the league. The second 3-peat Bulls team was nowhere near as good as the squad they had in the first 3-peat, but the second team was able to go 72-10. You know why? Because that was a weak era.
The Bulls also had a horrible record against the Houston Rockets. And the one chance Jordan had to go against Hakeem in the finals, it was the Bulls who choked and ended up losing to Shaq and the Orlando Magic in the Semifinals...And the Rockets ended up sweeping that same team.
i don't get this "'90's era is weak"
just because MJ dominated the era doesn't mean the league is full of bums during his time
these teams he shut down will have a field day running down today's league
re: Rockets-Bulls, sorry bud but '97 Rockets with Hakeem, Barkley & Drexler are the ones ended up losing to Jazz, and probably ending up losing to the Bulls had they reached the finals...Bulls were unstoppable that time
