I really liked Olajuwon and the Rockets but they did lose to the Bull's in the regular season and were eliminated from the playoff's the years the Bulls won the title. The two years the Rockets won the title were the two years Jordon was retired.

The world champion Rockets got owned by the '96 Bulls. The Rockets would've lost to Chicago in the finals.

Rockets vs. Bulls would've been a great series, no doubt The Dream would carved up the Bulls frontline easily

but i would agree with Pat Riley: "no one could beat MJ in the Finals"

Jordan was back in time for the '95 playoffs and played pretty well. But that year the Bulls were beat by the Magic. The Magic ended up meeting the Rockets in the Finals and were swept.

As a fan of the Rockets I have to admit Jordan retiring for a while kind of gets to me. I say this because those two championships that the Rockets won are the only two championship titles that the city of Houston has (I don't care for WNBA or MLS). Yet some people seem to want to put an asterisk next to it because of Jordan's retirement. Would people have done the same for the Knicks had they had won in '94? They couldn't have done it for the Magic in '95 since the Magic did beat the Bulls with Jordan.

Just one of those "what ifs" in sports that the fans will always talk about I guess.
