Many teams were ready to crush foolish jordon and the Bulls.
These 4 teams would all crush the Bulls in the playoffs. However,
the Bulls would get to the 2nd round. Pippen has never been defeated
in the first round. Now, without Pippen, the Bulls wouldn't make the
playoffs, unless they signed the Spoon, and then they would win the
championship -- jordon or not.

Yes. If they can re-sign Jud Buechler, Scott Burrell, Steve Kerr,
Joe Kleine, Rusty LaRue, Luc Longley, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman,
***ey Simpkins, Bill Wennington they will most certainly win the title.
These players had an uncommon chemistry--which they had to have, in
order to overcome Foolish jordon the albatross.
According to you they should,

Judden hopes they do. It will be funny listening to your jordon
jockers explain it away.
Of course you'll come up with

And with Mike they can? Ok. Explain why jordon couldn't get out of the
first round without Pippen.
Oh, BTW, Judden did the ring count that you like to bring up. You
said the Scott Williams vs. Hakeem Olajuwon ring count doesn't count
because Williams never led the team in scoring.
Fair enough. Sam Jones has 10 rings. jordon had 10. During the
reign of the Celtics, Jones was a leading scorer, so by your own
account, Sam Jones is the greatest guard of all time. Correct?
