Assume Jordan's dad was never killed and he continued playing after the first 3-peat.
Would he have 8 rings?

No way of knowing.

He could have gotten bored after 5 or 6 and retired.

One of the original reasons he retired is because he was getting bored with it, and he wasn't being challenged, and he had no more goals to obtain.

He stated that him and Phil sat down before he returned to discuss possible goals, and the one they went after was setting the all time single season win record, which he did (72-10)

They lost in '04 together and Shaq fell off significantly from his 3 peat years after leaving, so that is a pretty sh*tty prediction.

pretty hard to argue against.

3 going in and 3 coming back...

nothing would suggest the 2 in between would be any different.

I think it should be more a question of could he keep the desire going for that long because he certainly had the talent and the team to do it.

Hakeem's years.


I don't think the Bulls team pre Rodman could have contended with the 95' Hakeem team. That team wasn't nearly as stacked as their second 3peat team.

THIS^^^ Hakeem in his prime those two years was arguably the greatest most versatile center ever.

Ummmm..... NO

93-94 Team should have lost to the Suns. Won the series 4-3 and also had a very difficult time with the Knicks in the finals 4-3. This year they had Hakeem, Maxwell, Kenny Smith and Otis Thorpe. They would have been killed by the Bulls

94-95 Team This team played like crap all year. Finished with like 47 wins and once again barely beat the Suns 4-3 and played a very young Magic team in the finals. They had Clyde and Cassell but still not match for the Bulls. Lets not forget this very same roster the next year got swept in the 2nd round by the Sonics that lost to the Bulls in the Finals

Bulls would have won 8 in a row without a doubt.

The Bulls matched up badly with the Rockets. I'll look up the stats later when I care more.

don't bother.... you are wrong

the two years Jordan was gone the Rockets were 2-2 against the Bulls. The year he came back they were 0-2. Bulls would have doubled Hakeem and played them just like the Knicks when they had Ewing.

Rockets were Lucky that MJ left for two years or they would of had no chance.

This, kinda. There's no guarantee, and the Bulls would have been powerless to stop Hakeem. We saw what he did to Robinson, Shaq, and Ewing in those two years, brb matching Will Perdue, Luc Longley, and Bill Wennington against him.

Like they would play him straight up???? Barkley average like 40 points against the Bulls and lost. Ewing couldn't beat them nor did anyone else. It was a one man team the first year and the 2nd year they had and old Clyde. I guess the year he returned and they had the same exact roster and didn't win crap doesn't mean anything....
